The official name of the new Constellation is actually Constellation.2 (point two). The official model number of the 1TB unit is ST91000640NS. Both of these are listed on the actual drives on the front label. Also listed is the drives serial number and firmware revision.

The back of the drive uses the component free method and all of the surface mount components are facing the inside of the drive.

Here we see the 15mm standard and many will notice that the drive is quite a bit taller than the 9.5mm notebook drives that we are used to seeing. The mounting locations are the same for all of the 2.5" form factors, though.

The model we are looking at today is the SATA variant; in the future we will test the SAS variant and even get into some in-depth RAID tests.
