Packaging and a Closer Look
Packaging for the MBP houses an image of the DAS on the front. Capacity is listed at the top right, while the Thunderbolt and USB logos are in the lower left.
The back of the box goes into further detail about the performance of the My Book Pro along a few marketing quotes.
Inside the box, the My Book Pro is packed quite well. Similar to the way we find NAS appliances the DAS is surrounded by foam while all the accessories are boxed separately.
Cables included with the My Book Pro are a USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt with the external power supply.
In our first look at the My Book Pro, we noticed its two-tone design. The front is a glossy piano black while the shell takes on a silver color. Two USB 3.0 ports flank the left side of the enclosure while the two drive bays sit to the right.
The backside of the enclosure houses a large cooling fan for the WD Black HDDs with connectivity to the right.
Inside the My Book Pro, our sample housed two 6TB WD Black hard drives, carrying the model number WD6001FZWX.
