being a 2.5'' drive just means it's physically smaller, but it will still use the same connections as a regular sata hdd (1 sata power connection, 1 sata motherboard cable).

Short and to the point, it works like a regular drive, and a good choice.

+1 on getting it.

And that's the first time I've ever seen SATA power and data cable in one, I like that idea.
