Another feature are a line of LEDs that run down the right edge of the case, as a file transfer is in progress more turn on to show how far through a file transfer is.
When the column of LEDs is fully illuminated the file transfer is complete and the user can safely disconnect the hard drive.
Tapering edges make the drive appear smaller, and also make it easier to slip into a bag or coat pocket.
Also a gloss plastic stand is included so the drive can be used vertically.
