ASUS ROG RAIDR Express 240GB PCIe SSD Review - Packaging and Accessories

ASUS ROG RAIDR Express 240GB PCIe SSD Review

PCI Express is the future of performance storage, but native PCIe SSDs are rare. Are these RAID controlled SATA products worthy of their high price? (TPE:2357)

Packaging and Accessories

ASUS went full tilt on the product packaging...

...And then some. The front cover opens to reveal all of the software details, and expose the actual SSD on the other side.

This is a bit more than what we normally see from a regular 2.5" SSD.

The back of the package shows the specifications: up to 830 MB/s sequential read, 810 MB/s sequential write, and 100K IOPS for both read and write random 4K. These are obviously FOB specifications, so we didn't even talk about them on the specifications page; we'll determine the true performance today.

The packaging keeps the drives secure in the box, away from the corners where most damage occurs during shipping.

Inside we found a paper user guide, software disk, and the SSD.
