The Torqx has a holographic foil label on the front of the drive.

The back of the drive has the serial and part number laser etched in the aluminum casing.

Patriot has given the end user the ability to update the firmware on the Torqx (via a jumper that is exposed). After reviewing my fair share of Barefoot controlled drives it looks like only a few companies have made it possible to do this. In the long run you may be able to squeeze a little more performance out of the drive once more updates become available.

On the side we see that all of the standard mounting points are present so you will not have a problem mounting the Torqx.

Here we see the adapter, included screws to mount the drive into the adapter and the jumper for firmware upgrades.
