Packaging and Accessories



Compared to the last two G.Skill solid state drives we have looked at (the original Falcon and the Falcon 2), the box which the Phoenix ships in is quite stunning. Looking at it, we can see that G.Skill has opted for the more mundane list of features and specifications which shouldn’t impact anyone’s buying decisions too much.


When you open the Phoenix’s box and take a peak inside you can see that G.Skill, much like OCZ, has opted for the tried and true foam “book” style protection scheme. However, unlike the Vertex 2 which uses a single thickness of foam, the Phoenix lies in a double thick case.


Moving on to the list of accessories that accompany this SandForce based drive, we can see that this is the first SandForce drive does not come with a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter. In fact, this drive comes with is the installation pamphlet. This is disappointing to say the least, but considering the extremely low price point this drive comes in at, we don’t consider it a deal breaker by any stretch of the imagination.
