The bottom of the drive has four screw holes and four screws on it. This makes it easy to install the drive on a HDD rack that has the necessary holes to install a SSD drive from the bottom. The drive also has eight screw holes for installing the SSD drive into a HDD rack designed for 2.5” drives. ADATA’s drive is made out of plastic and is pretty sturdy.

The back of the drive has the SATA II connectors, a 7-pin and a 15-pin connector. The 7-pin connector is to connect the SATA Data cable. The 15-pin connector is to connect the SATA Power cable to the drive. All in all, the S592 is a solid looking product in terms of aesthetics to the average consumer. Recently, SATA 6 GB/s drives have hit the market but the support for these drives are not available as of yet.
