The delivery of OCZ VTR180-25SAT3-480G 480 GB SSD …

Let us now take a look to the contents of the Vector 180 SSD box:

The OCZ Vector 180 2.5″ SSD VTR180-25SAT3-480G comes with a 3.5″ adapter braket, screws, SSD manuals, warranty information and Acronis True Image HD software activation key. So exemplary of the contents by all manufacturers should look like!

With Acronis True Image HD software you can backup and restore hard drives and SSDs and mainly transfer Windows from a hard drive to an SSD and migrate it correctly.

The mounting frame is needed surely hardly with newer cases. But rather one 3.5″ to 2.5″ adapter more, thus the installation succeeds also in older or simpler cases without 2.5-inch slot.

Another feature of the OCZ Vector 180 SSD is the lower height, which is in contrast to some previous SSDs only 7 mm and no more 9.5 mm. OCZ doesn’t include a Crucial like 7 mm to 9.5 mm adapter frame.
