The delivery of the Crucial CT2000X6SSD9 SSD …

Like the current Crucial P5 and Crucial P5 Plus M.2 NVMe SSDs, the Crucial X6 2TB Portable SSD was packaged in a small cardboard box and shows both the capacity and the maximum possible speed of the interface on the front.

The left side shows the contents and the warranty period, which is indicated with a limited warranty of 3 years.

On the right, we see the supported operating systems. Windows 11 is not yet listed here, but Windows 10, Windows 8.1, macOS and Android are without version information.

However, the back is not quite as interesting this time, since no further technical data is listed there. Instead, it shows a few application areas, the barcode and the link to the support page.

This is included in the delivery package …

Inside the box is a blister pack containing a small leaflet, an USB-C to USB-C cable and of course the SSD. We also received an Crucial USB-C to USB-A adapter, which can be ordered optionally.
