How to tell my drives?


Ok, I have 2 old hardrives I wanna use as storage bins for music and movies on a new computer I hope to build, but I wanna know if its worth it, AKA: if they are really slow in RPMs or something else. I wanna know if there is a program that can tell me about my hardrives, like CPU-Z for hardrives... I have tried looking up the model #s but that didn't work too well cause of their age.

Thanks in advance!
Matt

Post the model numbers here. There's a wealth of knowledge in this forums regarding hard drives, and I'm sure someone will come up with spec's.
