As usual we received two units of the latest Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 drive (for single/RAID0 tests) in bulk form.

The Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 (AKA Constellation ES.3) is a 3.5 inch hard disk drive but that aside it looks the same like the ES.2 model.

The large sticker at the top of the drive includes information such as the Seagate logo, drive model (Constellation ES.3 prior to the renaming), coded date of manufacture (28/11/12), serial number, product number, barcodes, firmware version, connectivity, electrical requirements and last but not least several certification and warning logos.

On both sides we see the standard mounting holes found on every 3.5" drive out there.

Once again Seagate has used a green PCB at the rear with all of the components on the interior.

At the rear of the drive we see the usual SATA III data and power connectors along with 4 small pins next to them (probably for firmware updates).
