Our review sample of the WD Slim was delivered in bare drive form. The top side of the drive reminding me of a solid state drive rather than a spinner.

The bottom of the drive houses the capacity, listed at 1TB along with the date of manufacture, which for our sample was May 21st 2013.

The SATA power and data connections are placed in position for wide compatibility.

The WD Slim uses just a sliver of a PCB when compared to previous drives. Above you can see the very small tabs that connect the PCB to the motor, along with the clip for the head.

Here we have the front facing portion of the PCB, the motor controller made by WD and Winbond supplying the 16MB cache.

The backside of the PCB houses the Marvell 88i9446 controller.

Weighing the WD Slim, the drive came in at 3.15 ounces.
