The OCZ RD400, rather RD400A, came in a nice black box with blue accent. The front of the box shows the name of the product, a picture of what’s inside and its capacity. At the back, you can read the product’s description and some of its features.

Inside the box, the OCZ RD400A NVMe SSD is enclosed in a transparent plastic casing, together with a low-profile PCI slot bracket for those slim CPU chassis. You also get some reading materials.

Above are photos of the front and rear view of the OCZ RD400. The PCIe add-in adapter is an all-black PCB, meanwhile the RD400 M.2 NVMe SSD itself has a Blue PCB.

The RD400 NVMe M.2 SSD can be removed by removing the screw that locks it in place. There’s a pad underneath the RD400 that supports the gap in between. You can also remove the standard PCI bracket and replace it with the low-profile bracket in case your chassis is slimmer than the standard chassis. This used to be a problem for users with slim-type chassis since slim-type chassis were not as popular as today.

Above you see the front and rear view of the OCZ RD400, it’s a standard M.2 2880 compliant that is compatible with most motherboards, NUCs, mini-PC, laptops and Ultrabooks that has an M.2 slot and supports (PCIe) NVMe SSDs. Underneath the black OCZ sticker are the Samsung DRAM chip, Toshiba TC58NCP070GSB chip, and a couple of Toshiba 15nm MLC NAND chips.
