The packaging of the Vertex 4 is monochromatic, as we typically see from OCZ, finished in black and grey, with white accents. All the critical information is contained on the front, such as TRIM support, SATA 6G compatibility, and the Indilinx-Infused Everest 2.0 controller.

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 reads: “My SSD is Faster than your HDD”.

Let’s take a closer look at the OCZ Vertex 4 itself.
