In order to save the marketing budget Plextor shuffles their drives around and each reviewer only has a brief amount of time with the sample. The package was tore up quite a bit from the last guy or gal; sorry about that. On the front of the package Plextor clearly shows the products capacity and a few small details about the M2 Series.
On the back we found some general statements about the M2 Series, but no specific performance information. Retail shoppers may look at this and think the 128GB or the 64GB models perform at the same levels as what you will read about in this review, which is not the case. I'd really like to see Plextor include a sticker for each individual capacities performance or at least list them all on the retail package so retail shoppers avoid confusion.
The inner packaging is very well thought out. The main construction material is based on dense paper with a center chamber for the SSD. All of the paper documentation is kept in an isolated section away from the drive.
Our package didn't include the mounting screws that should have been in the retail kit. These were most likely retained by the previous reviewer. Here you can see the software disk and paper manuals.
