Fake Crucial M4 Box?

I just ordered my second Crucial M4 from Amazon and the boxing was signiicantly different than the first one..  This one seems kind of fake and cheap...  Here is a picture that I found online that someone else posted.  Can anyone confirm if this is boxing is fake?

I got one from work and it is the same as yours. It is different from my 128G (made in Singapore), this one is made in China.

Ahh, I see.  I was just kind of worried because the new packaging looks a lot cheaper and feels a lot cheaper than the first one I got a few months ago.

Wow.  You know your packaging design team have screwed up when multiple people think it's fake. Smiley Very Happy

I'm the person that started the other thread and I just want to let everyone know that despite the box being different the performance is the same. FW revision 0309. I haven't yet upgraded to 000F yet but I will in the near future.

Wow thanks so much for that thread.  I did a quick search but didn't find that one for some reason...

Yea!  I thought this one was counterfeit because the boxing looked so cheap compared to the one I got a few months ago!

Re: Fake Crucial M4 Box?

We can confirm that the Crucial m4 SSD packaging in question is legitimate, and apologize for any confusion caused by our current packaging transition. We are in the process of updating the design of all our Crucial SSD and DRAM labels and product packaging. We are still working through existing global inventory supplies of both product and packaging, so in the interim you may see variations as we transition to the new design. The Crucial m4 SSD and all existing Crucial products are still the same high-quality product, they just have a new look.
