There isn't really anything to look at when it comes to mechanical HDDs. Without a clean room we can't open the drive because it will destroy the clean platters as soon as the drive turns back on. Hitachi does list quite a bit of information on the drive's label, though.

All of the surface mount components face the inside of the drive so you don't have to worry about breaking off resisters and capacitors when handling the drive. This was an issue that HDD manufacturers eliminated around five years ago by facing everything toward the inside of the drive case.

All of the standard mounting locations are where they should be for the 3.5" form factor design.

The SATA power and data ports are also offset and where they should be.
