The review sample arrived quasi-OEM, with an included copy of Nero 7 Essentials. Nero is a very popular program that has various helpful tools, from playing and organizing media to drive benchmarking. Considering most drives don't arrive with any sort of bundle, this was a pleasant surprise. The bezel of the drive is black and curves outwards a little in the middle. From left to right, there is the emergency eject pinhole, the activity LED, and the eject button.
On top of the drive, there are the obligatory warning labels and identification stickers. At the back end are the ports for the SATA data and power cables. Nothing out of the ordinary here; on to testing!
