First Look

Included in the retail package is the external enclosure itself (with removable stand), two-piece power cable, USB 2.0 cable, screw driver, SATA cable, driver disc, user manual and a baggie of screws.

The enclosure itself is constructed of hard plastic with an incredible polished finish. Kingwin has included a mirrored oval on the left side of the enclosure which sports their company name. The front of the enclosure is also mirrored and has a Z1 Series logo which lights up during use. The right side of the drive is rather plain in comparison.

Here we have the rear of the unit. From top to bottom, we have a USB 2.0 port, eSATA port, on/off switch and a power connector. Notice in the third photo above; the bottom section of the rear bezel is starting to peel off. I tried pressing this back in place, but it kept folding back up.

Next up, hard drive installation...
