Packaging and Accessories



The Corsair Force ships in a small compact grey and white cardboard box. In fact, it is the exact same box which our Corsair Nova sample came in which should work towards reducing costs a bit. Therefore, as with the Nova, the front of the shipping box has a fairly generic looking Corsair branded SSD on it.

As mentioned in the Nova review, the back of the box has a short marketing blurb in six different languages but lacks any specifications, performance results or any real details whatsoever. We still dislike seeing this as one can easily confuse a Force with a Nova and end up buying the wrong drive if you are not careful.


Opening the box up we can see that Corsair has in keeping with the frugality of the exterior shipping container and opted for a plastic, form fitting clamshell container for internal protection. This is the exact same clamshell which accompanies the Nova line. While not nearly as good as the foam book-like boxes which accompany some other premier drives, the clamshell protection scheme is more than good enough for this kind of kit.



In a perfect world, our Force would have come with the exact same 2.5 to 3.5 adapter which accompanied our Nova drive. Sadly this is not a perfect world, and it appears ours shipped without it even though the packaging and Corsairís website says one should be included. Basically, all retail drives will have this adapter but some review units were shipped without them.
