The plastic casing is glossy.


The top section has ventilation holes for dissipating heat.


Seagate uses those type of Glossy plastic casing that one point Western Digital used them. Seagate should have ditched glossy casing when they had a chance. But its more of a preference.


The front casing section’s LED is white. The pinhole type LED glows switch powered up. On the dock has 4x bars to roughly give you an idea on how much data is stored in the drive. The rear is where you have an array of vents. Below that is where you’ve have the AC Power port and the USB 3.0 port.


The underbelly and base section of the dock is matte finish plastic, with 4x rubber feet on the bottom and 3x clamp on the base to clip on the rest of the drive. Do note that unlike Go-Flex version, I wasn’t able to use the GoFlex USB 3.0 cable and even the native SATA connectors on it.


The socket add-ons need to slide in. Very useful add-on, especially for those who need larger storage and going to different countries that different socket plug types.
