For the packaging on the RD400 the size of the box is different than the normal SATA OCZ drives but the styling is still similar. The front of the box has a photo of the M.2 drive and the included PCIe adapter. The rest of the front has the OCZ blue dashes on a dark gray background. The capacity of the drive is up in the top left corner and the each of the other corners has other information. The Toshiba branding is the largest but the OCZ logo is also there. Then the RD400 name is down in the bottom right corner. Up in the top right corner is the NVMe logo to show that this is an NVMe drive.

The back of the box has another photo of the drive and under it is a short feature list. They basically just mention that you get the PCIe adapter and that it has both full and half height slot covers. The drive itself is an M.2 2280 form factor, is PCIe Gen 3 x4, and uses Toshiba MLC Nand. The rest is mostly market fluff in multiple languages to fill out the rest of the back of the packaging.

Inside the box, the drive itself comes in the PCIe adapter and is protected by a clear plastic clamshell package. The half-height slot cover sits up above and they also slip in the documentation alongside of the plastic tray. You get information on support and RMA on one and the other has the warranty information on the drive.

Who else is ready to start moving to PCIe based NVMe drives? I know I am, look at those numbers!
