It should be noted that North America and Europe buyers will get only 2 years of warranty period, whereas APAC and Japan will enjoy 3 years of warranty period. While the actual drive specifications are not mention, it should be pointed out that Amazon U.K. points out that drive used is a 7200 RPM drive.
