Windows 7: Seagate Barracuda HDD With A "Desktop HDD" Sticker On It?

Seagate Barracuda HDD With A "Desktop HDD" Sticker On It?


I just ordered and received a Seagate Barracuda 2TB from Amazon - Seagate Barracuda 3.5 inch 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB 6GB/S Internal SATA Drive: Computers & Accessories

However, upon inspection, on top of the HDD there is a "Desktop HDD" label instead of a Barracuda label. It even shows the Barracuda on the picture on Amazon.

I was wondering if it was a fake or just the same thing?...

My 3TB Seagate has the same Desktop HDD label, bought from a reputable retailer/wholesaler here in Istanbul.
