Unlike the Hitachi drive we just tested the other day, the Momentus drive came to us OEM style; that is, with no box. So we start off straight away by looking at the drive itself.
On the whole, the drive looks almost identical to the Hitachi drive, there are no special windows to see into the drive which would be a waste for a notebook, server or HTPC. The label on the top of the drive has the model number, capacity and all the extra info of the drive's manufacturer.
As with most notebook drives, on the bottom the PCB is totally bare at its base. Thanks to miniaturised circuits the controller chips, resistors and voltage regulators are placed between the bottom of the drive case and top of the PCB.
Lastly we see the back of the drive. Thanks to the standardisation of the Serial ATA protocol the drive has the same SATA data and power connectors so you can use them in HTPC's or any other desktop/notebook PC that has a Serial ATA interface.
