The outside of the drive is pretty standard. Western Digital chose to put a big and powerful 2TB that stands out from the rest of the text. No decoder ring needed to figure out the capacity of this drive.

All of the surface mount components and chips are placed on the inside of the control board.

As you can see, this is a standard 3.5 inch desktop drive. Many years ago when a company would release a new high capacity drive, they needed to package it in a 1.5 inch package; not the case with the new 2TB Caviar Green.
