The Desktop SSHD is quite familiar in appearance to the rest of Seagate's lineup. The top line of the drives sticker denotes the model with capacity listed underneath. Into the finer details, you will find serial number, model number and firmware revision.

The back of the drive houses the green PCB, similar to what we found on the 2TB variant.

The drive's SATA power and data connectors are lined up correctly, so there will be no issues with hot swap trays.

The PCB houses the LSI drive controller in the center of the PCB with the 64MB of cache next to it. The eASIC FSP sits next to 8GB of Samsung NAND flash.
