I recently ordered from newegg a :
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
However, in my speccy it shows up as
SATA type SATA-II 3.0Gb/s
I was wondering if there is a way to find the HD model within, or perhaps the HD Cache speed or other statistics i can use to ensure i got the right drive.
I get the feeling somebody at the factory stuck the sticker for the “WD1002FAEX” on a “WD1001FALS”
It is making almost as much noise as my 3 year old Seagate, which seems odd for a “new hard drive” and is occasionally sluggish when performing menial tasks such as dragging a window to the top of the screen to maximize it.
Any help whatsoever apreciated.
