- Samsung SATA 9mm drive inside
- 2 year warranty

Cons:

- no longer USM (SATA/USB removal-able adapter)

Other Thoughts:

Big fan of Seagate since they are the last manufacturer who still makes portable external drives that are still standard SATA drives. Their previous drives were USM, but obviously that had to go to make it this tiny. There is barely enough space for shielding then the case itself.

Take it apart by carefully pulling off the metal lid. Lid is stuck on by tape and small notches. Inside is a Samsung ST2000LM003. Performance via SATA:

Sequential: 120-58MB
4k: .63/1.8MB read/write
4k (32 queue): 1.4/2.0MB read/write

4k reads increased with queue depth so NCQ works. I would buy one more next time it's on sale. Keep up to great work Seagate, but do bring back USM.
