The Crucial X8 has a minimalist design, using a matte all-black coating over the entire outer shell. The sides of the SSD are covered in a soft rubberized coating to prevent accidental slipping of the storage unit. The casing that protects the SSD is made from aluminum and has reduced dimensions to save space.
The only distinctive design element present on the X8 SSD, are two black glossy strips, each one is installed on the upper side of the casing.
The data connection is done through a single USB Type-C port, located on one side of the SSD. Fortunately, a single USB Type-C to USB 3.0 adapter is included in the package.
