Looking at the drive itself, we again find the drive without a capacity designation, though the model number hides no secrets.

The drives SATA power and data connectors are lined up correctly so no issues with hot swap racks.

Above, we have the PCB removed from the drive where we get a look at the LSI controller in the center, followed by 128MB of SKHynix DRAM for the cache and Smooth motor driver.
