The front of the box shows an image of the drive (without a lid) and good clear descriptions of its capacity, spin speed and cache. The back of the box has a panel of multilingual statements of the drive's features. Also packed in the box are a quick start guide and a warranty leaflet.


Although the drive doesn't come in clamshell packaging to protect it, it is firmly supported in-between two packaging end pieces so it sits nice and securely in the box.

Built on a standard 3.5in format, the 3TB P300 is a three-platter design with six heads. It also uses Dual-stage actuator technology (as does the 2TB model) which helps protect the positional accuracy of the head against deviations caused by vibration during both reading and writing operations.

A quick glance at the rear of the PCB shows an LSI 6045 storage controller, a Winbond DDR2 DRAM chip and a spindle controller coded 6B4N1J6.
