OEM Packaging and the Western Digital RE4-GP
Our RE4-GP came directly from Western Digital in an OEM "White Box" package.
On the inside we see that the drive is held in place just like the retail drives with the plastic suspension pieces that dampen sudden movements.
Here we get our first look at the drive and can see that on the front Western Digital makes it clear that this is an enterprise product.
The back of the drive appears to look like any other drive. If you look closely you can see the pin that the spindle for the platters mounts to. Western Digital mounts the spindle on both ends and this helps to keep the platters from vibrating off axis.
On the side we see that the drive has three standard mounting locations.
The power and data connectors are located where they should be. There are some jumpers on the back as well, just in case you need to configure the drive for additional settings.
RE does stand for RAID Edition and there is only one real way to put them to the test, use a pair of them!
