Our review sample of the Seagate Desktop SSHD was delivered in its bare form. At the top the capacity is listed at 2000GB with firmware revision CC43.

The back of the drive houses the typical green PCB that we are used to seeing on Seagate Desktop variants.

Removing the PCB, we find two sets pins for connecting both the drives head and PCB.

The PCB houses the LSI drive controller, with the 64MB of DRAM cache manufactured by Samsung, and to the top, we have the eASIC FSP with 8GB of Toshiba NAND flash.
