With 1 terabyte of space you can literally set this baby up and forget about it, even for the crazy down loaders out there. The box is about a foot long and 3 inches wide, red and white with the brand IOmega plastered all over it. Has a nice picture of the product, so you know what you`re buying of course. We got mine from Radio Shack for about 70 bucks, which is a great deal considering Best Buy wanted 90+ for it. This is the desktop verion, not a portable, which means it does need an electrial outlet. The portable ones require only a usb to power them, and they run around 100-150$+ depending on size and style and brand and whatnot.
This hard drive in particular comes with a 3 year warranty, and features a "plug and play" setup, which requires no installation or setup. It comes with the Usb 2.0 which connects the hard drive with the computer, and the power cord. For an added bonus, you get the Iomega protection suite which protects the hard drive from viruses, so you torrent down loaders out there can feel a little safer.
For the Energy Conscious out there, this product an energy star product and you are told right on the box that the adapter is energy star qualified for a better environment. When you open the box and pull out your new hard drive you can choose to leave it laying willy nilly, or use the little stand that comes with it to organize it on your desk or wherever. The hard drive itself weighs roughly 2 lbs and has a transfer rate of 480 mbits/s
