Packaging & Unboxing
Packaged in a green and black box the Toshiba TR200 arrived unscathed despite some rough package handling.
The back of the package shows it’s a 2.5” drive with BiCS Flash, Trim Support, and a 3-year warranty.
Inside the outer box, the TR200 arrived in a sandwiched plastic clamshell.
We found a couple of booklets inside, a warranty booklet and an install guide.
A Closer Look
Well the Toshiba TR200 is certainly an attractive drive and the outer shell seems to be made of a sturdy aluminum frame.
On closer inspection, we noticed a couple of minor imperfections on the label probably from machinery on the assembly line as both slight imperfections were identically square and the same size.
As you can see this is a standard SATA 6 drive.
The back plainly shows Toshiba solid state drive model number THN-TR2OZ4800 with a 480GB capacity.
Toshiba was kind enough to send us a shot of their 2-channel Toshiba TC58NC1010GSB controller which pulls off the DRAMless miracle of high-speed BiCS Flash transfer speed.
