The drive comes in a protective antistatic bag that will prevent any electostatic damage before installation of the drive. On the back, there is a warning sticker that also works as the security seal for the anti-static bag.
Once out of the anti-static bag, the drive's appearance is not much different than other SSDs on the market. The front of the drive has the logo with information listed on it such as size, version, and connectivity of the drive. The rear side of the drive is clear of any retail information and has four screw holes for mounting - you can also see the SATA power and Data connectors here. On the side of the drive, there are two screw holes for mounting; this is where the 2.5 to 3.5 inch adapter will be installed.
Installing the 2.5 to 3.5 inch adapter onto the drive was very easy, and, once attached, it fit perfectly into my HDD cage. It also fit nicely into my 3.5 inch Floppy drive bay. To install the adapter, you simply put the rails on each side and screw them into place.
