Is there a way I can 100% be sure that the Seagate has 7200.10's 'PERDENDICULAR RECORDING TECHNOLOGY'? The reason I'm asking is because the sticker label on the hd indicates it's a "7200.9'....however, when I did a search on the model# indicated on the HD, a online store website showed that it was a recognized as a 7200.10. Keep in mind the model# on my HD is not even listed on the seagate website. I guess since this was installed by DELL, the HD was specialized for DELL ONLY....

So as you can see, the information is conflicting...I don't which is which....so is there a way I can find out through the windows OS or a apps program that can tell me it's using perpedicular recording technology or can show me details of the HD's specs?

Thanks guys.
