This was the first opportunity we've been given to examine a full retail Intel SSD. Our purchase netted up a drive with a full desktop installation kit, similar to what ships from many of the Team SandForce drives.
The most interesting side we found on the package was actually tucked away on the bottom. Here we see Intel rating their SSD lineup with the 40GB model being on the low end of the performance totem pole and the 160GB being at the top. The part that interests us is that Intel gangs the 80GB and 120GB models together with two check marks for performance, but in the specifications listed on their website lists the 120GB model with the 160GB specifications.
The back of the package shows an image of the drive and lists some of the features and benefits of solid state drives.
As with all Intel products, a full breakdown of product codes, model numbers and such is listed.
On the inside we found quite a few accessories packed into the tiny package. Intel not only ships the retail drive with a 2.5 to 3.5" desktop adapter, but also includes cables that allow you to get your system up and running quickly.
