Packaging and accessories

The P1 SSD is delivered in a small form factor cardboard box. The front side of the box features the general information about the product, the P1 name brand and the drive capacity alongside the type of storage drive.


The back side of the packaging has a brief description about the software offered by Crucial, and how it can be used, in several languages. A disclaimer regarding the true storage capacity is also printed on the lower side.
