The Front and Top Panels

The front panel of the ZM-T3 is made of black plastic, with one 5.25” external bay. Although the connectors and buttons are in the top, the hard drive activity LED is located near the center of the front panel.

As we mentioned before, the buttons and connectors are located at the top of the front panel. Figure 5 shows them, with the power button, one USB 3.0 port, earphones and microphone jacks, one USB 2.0 ports, and the reset button. The power LED is inside the power button.
