Packaging and a Closer Look

The 12TB capacity shares much of its design with the previous 10 and 8TB helium solutions. The sticker covers model and serial numbers along with firmware and capacity notes.

The connection side of the drive has no issues with alignment for trays or caddies as the data and power connections are correctly placed.

The bottom of the drive is mostly flat with the pcb housed to the left.

Removing the pcb, we have the sealed connections for the heads and spindle motor.

The pcb hasn't changed at all for the 12TB model, we still have the smooth driver and avago controllers along with the 256MB cache between them.
