Observing the actual SSD, we can see the HyperX has a brushed aluminium plate in the shape of an X with the HyperX and respective Kingston insignias in either corner. The HyperX logo is etched with a cut aluminium feel to it.

Turning our attention to the rear of the SSD there are the usual mounting holes for positioning this either in the provided bracket plate or within your computer case. There is a label on the back of the SSD with serial number, standards and capacity size. Of course being SATA3 we still use the same SATA connector as we would for SATA2 and again for the SATA power also.
