Packaging

So the Extreme 510 is in a box but it is setup to be hung from a peg in a retail store, just like more flash drives, SD cards, and other portable storage devices. The front of the box has a large photo of the drive on it. The SanDisk branding is in a red strip down at the bottom and the model is in the top left corner. I love that they did make sure to get the capacity, read speed, and connection type all on the front as well. The background of the cover shows some water drops, hinting at the drives usage. When you open the front up you get a window showing you the actual drive and here they talk about its durability. Specifically, the metal ring that holds it in your bag, its rubber bumper, and IP65 rated water and dust resistance.

The back of the box touches on those same things, also adding in that this drive is up to 4 times as fast as other portable drives. This is important for people who don’t know what SSD means. Everything is repeated in multiple languages then there is a whole list of legal mumbo jumbo from the claims up above.

Inside the box, along with the drive itself, you get a short USB 3.0 cable and a folded up instruction manual. The cord is extremely short, less than a foot long in total. It has a standard Type-A connection on one end and a micro-USB 3.0 connection on the other. That is if you haven’t seen one before just like a normal micro-USB port only wider.
