Here is our first look at the E7K1000 1TB. As you can see, the manufacturing date is August of 2008. We received the sample just two weeks ago and were told it was a newer model. Obviously there was a delay to market at some point, but the good news is that it is here now.

It is amazing how small the PCBs have gotten on HDDs in recent times. I remember getting drives just a few years ago where the entire bottom portion of the drive had surface mount components all over it.

From the side and back we see that the drive looks like any standard 3.5 inch disk drive. Nothing wrong with that, let's get to the performance!
