Packaging, A Closer Look

The XL3000 external HDD from Hitachi is shipped inside a medium-sized cardboard box, with a photo of the product on the front, the total disk capacity and interface used (in this case, USB 2.0):


On the opposite side, we can see a description of the product, along with a package contents summary, in many different languages:


Inside the box, we can find one USB 2.0 cable, a small plastic dock, the power adapter, a leaflet which contains some photos regarding the drive installation, and the drive itself, in a plastic enclosure:

The adapter is manufactured by Asian Power Devices, and its output rating is 12V, 1.5A:


Besides some drawings that show us how to install the product, we do also get some information regarding the product warranty:
