The box for the Pro IV as still surprisingly large considering the drives small size, even so they got all of the important information right onto the top of the packaging. You have a large RunCore logo, the model name and most importantly the capacity. The one thing that was missing from the top was there isn’t any mention of this being a ZIF drive, but this is a box design that gets used on multiple drives so it is understandable. On the back of the box there is a fairly large sticker with more details about the drive including the full model name, read and write speeds, warranty, and dimensions. This is actually a lot more information than you would typically find on any SSD packaging, I was very happy with this.

Inside you will find a user guide as well as the drive itself tucked into its foam housing. The small size is more obvious due to the boxes size. Up under the SSD you will find another foam tray with a USB 2.0 cable and a USB 2.0 enclosure. When you open the enclosure up you will find a short ZIF cable and the screws needed to install the small SSD into the enclosure if you need too. Being a fairly rare connection type it’s nice to see that RunCore included this enclosure as a way to hook up your old ZIF drive to another PC to back everything up, unlike other drives you aren’t going to have this connection inside your everyday PC.

Ive not seen a ZIF hdd in ages! A few of the older netbooks, and actually the 1st gen iPod used ZIF hdds. Ive got an adapter in the shop that converts the 1.8" ZIF to a mini PATA, then an adapter that goes from mini PATA to full PATA, then from there adapt it to USB!
