By the way, besides my terabyte version, the manufacturer offers a configuration of 500 GB and a top, which can be stored as much as 2 TB.
Inside the box is a short instruction in different languages, a short USB 3.0 cable and the hard drive itself.
It should remove the hard drive from the plastic packaging container, and you can understand why a manufacturer called his device pathetic word Diamond. Despite the fact that the entire body is made of plastic, the top panel has received a special diamond pattern reminiscent of the bezel.
Most surfaces are not glossy and matte with a slight texture. Herein lies another advantage. It would seem that the obvious solution was to make the whole body glossy. By the way, many manufacturers and arrive. But then the hard drive would look nice on a display case.

Indicators not disappointed – it’s a good level for modern drives USB 3.0. Comparable values were obtained in CrystalDiskMark on a computer that Windows 8.1.
In practice, the copying of data and content playback also no problems. Incidentally, in the memory of the hard disk drive manufacturer has placed a file with reference to product registration and activation of the guarantee. Apparently, the buyer about it accidentally forgot.
And another interesting point – off on the hard disk, you never see the indicator light. Nevertheless, it is simply carefully masked. On it, you can easily determine whether active at the moment the data transfer.
