The Basics:

The front of the Seagate Wireless Plus looks like it is brushed aluminum, however, it is really just plastic. On the top left of the front panel are two LEDs. The first is the wireless indicator. Blinking blue means it is starting up, while solid blue means it is ready to be connected. The second LED is the power LED. Green means more than 90% battery life, yellow is less than 90% battery life or charging, and red means it needs to be charged (less than 20% battery remains). The Seagate logo is in the bottom right corner. On the left side is a single power button... nothing fancy here.

The back of the drive includes the standard label which provides the serial number, model information and various certifications. Like the front of the drive, the rest of the drive is plastic, however this time it has a soft touch rubber coating on it.

On the bottom edge of the drive is a removable door which hides the cable connections when not needed.

With the cover removed, the SATA connections are visible. Using standard SATA connections allows Seagate to utilize the fastest drives possible, and ensuring future upgradability to other connections such as Firewire or Thunderbolt. Here is where I run into my first area of concern; while I like having the cover for the SATA connections, it could also be lost since it is not integrated into the housing in some way. This is a somewhat minor concern though, but for all those who have lost the cap to a USB flash drive, having something commected is preferred.
