The Crucial MX300 series of drives are designed to offer great performance for a low cost and as such the packaging is pretty standard for an SSD. All the necessary information is

All the necessary information is on the box, including the capacity, accessories and dimensions of the drive, allowing system builders to easily know if this drive will suitable for your system building or upgrading plans.

Inside the retail packaging is the MX300 SSD itself, a 2.5mm thick spacer (for use if you need this drive to fit into a 9.5mm 2.5" drive slot). Inside there is also a code for Acronis' True Image HD software, with full instructions on how the use it.

The MX300 follows the same visual design as other Crucial SSDs, with rounded corners and a silver/ platinum coloured cover, the letters MX are shown on the front of the drive, without the SSDs capacity, which is shown on the rear of the drive.  

With a simple front facing aesthetic the Crucial MX300 will look great in most systems, with all MX300 drives offering the same  external aesthetic regardless of capacity.

At the rear of the drive, the MX300 sticker will have all the relevant information about your drive, including the capacity and model numbers. This ugly sticker will be easily covered when the drive is mounted, allowing this drive to look great in most PCs.  

The only fault with this SSD that I can find aesthetically is that the front sticker has blue colouring, which may annoy some PC builders. A more neutral grey coloured sticker will suit a lot more systems, especially given how popular RGB LEDs are these days.

You would be surprised how quickly we could fill it. All out GPU benchmark games alone would take up most of it.

It is nice that this SSD does offer quite a large capacity, as 1050GB is a lot more than the 960GB drives we commonly see these days.Quote
