There are many things going on with the front of the BlacX SE. The first thing you'll notice is the four USB ports along the bottom. The SE variant also gets a hard drive cover that lifts over the entire front of the drive.
Here is a better look at the front from above. The cover opens to the front from the pivot points shown in the image.
To remove the drive, simply remove the cover and press the eject button.
The back is where the power button and cord are located. USB plugs in here also, and as you can see a cut out is in the plastic for eSATA but currently Thermaltake does not show a BlacX SE available with eSATA. At this time we can only hope for an eSATA version that retains the USB hub.
Here is the BlacX with the door down; you can see the connectors for SATA inside, the metal ejection mechanism is also visible.
The ejection mechanism is made of metal so you shouldn't have a problem with the unit being damaged from typical use.
