The Crucial BX100 500GB does not have a whole lot of stuff included with it out of the box. This no-frills approach keeps the retail box small and excess waste low, and I am always appreciative of companies who do not throw in extras for the sake of throwing in extras. This is not to mention it is a value oriented drive, so a smaller bundle means more savings. The drive itself is wrapped in an antistatic bag. The other item is a rubber spacer, and this is it. The reason why the spacer is necessary is because the drive is only 7 mm thick. Older 2.5″ drives are 9.5 mm thick, so if you have a drive bay that requires the extra height for proper installation, Crucial has made sure your bases are covered.
