PACKAGE

The GO Series drives comes in 60GB, 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB models, each with a 3 year warranty, and packaged in a simple clear plastic clamshell in this instance. Today we’re looking at the 240GB model. Note the prominent display of 7mm low profile design; this is the distinguishing feature of this GoDrive, unlike most other SSDs on the market which are 9.5mm high.

The rear contains a bit more information on how to actually use the drive, which avoids a separate User’s Guide, it would seem. Inside the clamshell is simply the drive; no accessory package to mention.

Let’s take a closer look at the VisionTek GoDrive.
