And there it is, this is the Samsung Spinpoint F3 SATA II 2000 GB version, you can seek this drive under SKU code HD203WI . You should easily be able to place it somewhere in your chassis as its standard 3.5" sized.
When we look at the connectors, we spot the standard power and Serial ATA connector, this drive is SATA2 compatible.
When we flip her around .. what can we say. It's an HDD ... one PCB, a controller IO chip and cache memory.
The PCB is showing a small Marvell controller for IO and the Samsung chip is a 32MB cache memory chip. Unfortunately not 64MB, but for a 5400 RPM drive this is fairly normal. Hey, these are supposed to be cost effective drives.
