Packaging and a Closer Look
Our drives arrived in bare form. The design follows that of the 8TB model reviewed a year ago. On the front, we have the Red branding and capacity listed at the top in bold print. To the right are the connectivity and cache listings and below the NASware 3.0 and QR code.
The SATA interface includes the power to the left and data to the right with placement pins on the far right for some backplanes.
Removing the PCB, you can see a completely sealed drive. The drive head connects via an amber ribbon cable and the bottom left shows HelioSeal in action.
The PCB includes EtronTech DRAM cache, with a smooth motor driver and Avago drive controller in the center.
