First Impression And Bundles

A black chunky drive greeted us when we took the unit out of its cardboard packaging. Overall footprint of the drive is close to other similar offerings available on the market today. In terms of appearance, the housing of the Imation drive is rectangular and boxy in design with the front face of the drive flat and bland.

A look at the boxy Imation drive from the front.

At the rear of the drive is an audio jack, USB port, power switch and power port.

No sound proofing material at the mouth of the drive.

Same goes to the tray of the Imation drive.

Be prepared to set aside 24 by 17 cm (L x W) of desktop space to accommodate the Imation external 8x DVD writer.

A blank piece of Imation Thematic CD-R and DVD+RW are bundled in with the Imation drive.

Nero OEM suite software installer.

The Nero OEM CD compilation includes Nero Express 6, InCD 4, NeroVision Express 2, Nero BackItUp, MPEG-2 SVCD/DVD plug-in and Acrobat reader. Basically, the software aspect of the product has been covered well by this compilation.
