No, 5400.

Soldered USB port, no sata.

But as a bonus they're really ugly with sharp corners. Wink

Last time they wouldn't honor it in store.
Also:
Still didn't get the gift-card yet from last time even though I ordered it online eventually.

Are these 2.5" drives and 7200 RPM? Can you remove from the case or are they soldered inside?

The drive inside is: WD40NMZW-11GX6S1

2.5" 5400 RPM 15mm HDD with USB 3.0 bridge soldered on. It is not usable in any other application besides externally.

External drive vendors are finally wising up and starting to prevent the shelling epidemic.

Western Digital has been wise to this practice for years (at least on Portable 2.5" HDDs). Toshiba is hit or miss, but I believe most of their new Canvio Basics USB 3.0 Portable HDDs also have the PCB soldered on inside.

Seagate should be good to go on their Expansion or Ultra Plus Slim 2 TB/3 TB/4 TB/5 TB HDDs. Anything above 2 TB will likely not fit in most laptops due to the drive height being 12.5mm to 15mm.

It's really a stupid practice to sell externals for cheaper than the Internal 2.5" / 3.5" HDDs themselves, but I don't see it changing anytime soon.

This would be perfect for my home server. 4TB for $109 plus a $25 gift card? I don't need the storage but I'm not passing this up
