PACKAGE

The box of the OCZ Vector 150 240GB SSD is blue and black with OCZ’s signature grey/white monochromatic accents. All the critical information is contained on the front, such as TRIM support, SATA 6G compatibility, the Indilinx-Infused controller, Acronis cloning software included, and the capacity (240GB in this instance).

The rear contains a bit more information.

Contained within the box is the drive itself of couse, but also a 3.5″-to-2.5″ bay converter, installation guide, warranty information and a sticker that is to profess your love of SSDs (OCZ ones, specifically). Also included is a brief set of instructions that explains the necessary information about how to download the Acronis software. The Vector 150 package includes a serial key that will be needed to activate the utility. The inclusion of a premium disk migration utility and adapter bracket with this drive is certainly welcomed in terms of added value.
