Looks good! You might want to remove one of the Zero's for the rpm before it flies off with the computer!

Did a quick proof read, thanks. This hard rive has some great specs and i actually was able to purchase for less than 100. Faster than WD blacks, for less money. I'm using it to store my games on, as i have a kingston and intel ssd for os and frequently used programs.

Next question where can you get a 1TB drive for less than $100?

Ebay is your friend. Plus these new drives are averaging about 125 when you can find them, everywhere has them. These are a steal right now.

I just purchased two of these today from Best Buy. I don't normally shop there but the price was right ($95 each). These drives are very fast. The sequential numbers are almost 4x the PATA numbers from a few years ago and 25% faster than any other 7200 RPM mechanical drive I've tested up to this point.
