Starting at the front of the drive we have the Seagate logo followed by the Serial and Part Numbers for the Barracuda XT 2TB HDD. Seagate has included an Installation Summary which goes into detail how to install the drive step by step. There is also a picture showing where the Power and Data cables plug into the drive along with the various regulatory logos.

The bottom of the drive has a printed circuit board with screws holding it into place along with the bottom of the data and power connections. An arm goes into the platters. The platters are not exposed as on some of the hard drives on the market today. The sides of the Seagate drive have the mounting holes for the screws to mount the hard disk onto a new system.
