We received our Travelstar review sample with full retail kit. The front of the box shows a sample image of the drive, with the capacity listed across the top.

The retail kit included the drive, manual and a coupon for 3GB of free cloud backup from Touro.

Looking over our drive, we find the capacity listed to the left center of the drive with power requirements under. Further down we find the SATA 6Gb/s capability listed, along with the drive's shipping firmware revision of 3B0.

The back of the drive has an ocean green PCB, with no surface mount components exposed.

The drives SATA and power connections correctly placed.

To check the Z-Height of the drive, I setup my Starrett 799. At the drives thickest point it measured in at 9.13mm. This means that this drive will fit in most notebooks, but not your new Ultrabook, which calls for a 7mm Z-Height.

Putting the drive on our AWS BT-201 scale we find the drive weighing in just over 112 grams.
