The HyperX Savage 480 GiB

The HyperX Savage 480 GiB also comes in a small box, shown in Figure 10. Besides the SSD itself, there is also an adapter to install the unit on a 3.5-inch bay and a frame to fit the drive in laptops that require a 9.5 mm thick drive, as this unit is only 7 mm thick. The Savage also comes with a case sticker and a serial code to redeem the Acronis True Image HD software.
