In typical SanDisk fashion the Ultra Plus ships in a tame package void of bright colors. The understated look goes well with SanDisk, but we have to admit it would look better with flames on the box or something of that sort.
The back of the package gives us a little detail on the drive, but as you may of noticed by now, we haven't mentioned any performance data at all. That's because SanDisk doesn't give any performance data at all on their website or on the package other than the website stating, "... read speeds up to 530MB/s..." It's really an odd way to market a SSD especially when on the brink of a price war.
In our reviewers guide we found a detail list of the specifications for the two highest capacity Ultra Plus models. What's interesting is although the Ultra Plus uses a four-channel controller, the 256GB model looks like it can run with the Extreme, a drive using the LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller.
Inside the package, we found a nice assortment of accessories. The 7mm to 9.5mm adapter bracket is under the SSD. All of the components get tucked into the package on the opposite side of the drive when packed so nothing is able to scratch the drive during shipping.
