I'm going for the "HD103SJ", was wondering what this means in the specs:

In overview:
• MAX.500GB Formatted Capacity Per Disk (the drive is 1 TB??)

In Specs:
Capacity * 750 GB

what is this? the drive is 1 TB, so what does all this means?

Best solution

I think the "MAX.500GB Formatted Capacity Per Disk" is actually the platter density, it means it has 500GB per platter higher density per platter is usually considered a good thing.

The "Capacity * 750 GB" is probably an error since the HD103SJ is a 1TB drive (however, once formatted Windows will probably report ~930GiB free because of the TiB vs TB moronic difference).
