Packaging for the Akitio Palm RAID is rather elegant. Here we have an image of the drive centered, with marketing information surrounding it.

Upon opening the packaging, we found an insert adding to the elegance.

Scope of delivery includes the Palm RAID, reading materials, a Velcro strap, and a few stickers.

Looking over the Palm RAID, I like the idea of having the Thunderbolt cable tucked into the side of the enclosure. At the bottom we also have a LED for activity.

Here you can see the aforementioned Thunderbolt cable.

The back of the enclosure carries drive information, including serial numbers of both internal mSATA SSDs.

Here we find two 128GB mSATA SSDs powered by Phison controllers.
