First off we have the drive itself, and looking at it there is nothing remarkable about the look of the drive. There are no pretty see-through windows like the latest Raptor, which is pretty sensible since they will either be in a Notebook or latest generation of small form servers that use 2.5" drives. The top of the drive has the company logo, model number and the capacity of the drive. There are no settings for you to change in the way of master/slave since it is SATA based, this making it much easier to configure, especially for notebooks.
The underside of the drive is extremely clean of high rise circuits and components, simply because they have been sandwiched between the top of the PCB and the lower casing of the drive. With this design you don't have to worry about any short circuits or clearance issues, simply slip it into any notebook that supports SATA HDDs and you're going.
Lastly, on the back of the drive there is a single SATA power and SATA data port. The Notebook SATA and Desktop SATA are identical in specifications, which means you can run these drives in any desktop system if you need to swap out data or place them in any SATA enclosure. The removal of the older 44-pin IDE interface has done wonders for centralising the notebook and desktop standards.
