Each GRX drive in the various capacities share the same styling but a different colour scheme. Teh 240GB model happens to be purple. So the box design reflects that, in a black, white, and purple design as well.
Basic features are outlined, such as the dual SandForce controllers, x4 PCIe Bus interface, and a low profile form factor. Most notably absent is any sort of significant VisionTek logo; it’s nearly impossible to tell whose drive this is just by glancing at the box. VisionTek might want to consider reinforcing their corporate branding a bit more on the box.
The rear contains a bit more information. What’s particularly helpful here is the SSD upgrade kit, with instructions on how to clone your hard drive to the SSD. In fact, there’s a video that shows the steps, easy to understand for a novice who may be a bit unsure how to transfer their important data.
Contained within the box is the drive itself of course, a Quick Installation Guide, and also a low profile adapter in case anyone has the chance to install this little beast in a small form case or HTPC setup for a real joyride.
The specifications indicate the drive is capable of up to 825MB/s Read and 800MB/s Write, with 100,000 4K random write IOPS. Very fast, indeed.
Let’s take a closer look at the VisionTek GRX.
