For sale, 640gb external Seagate HDD

Selling as I now have a dual internal HDD setup in my desktop PC.

I have fully reformated the HDD.
It shows 640gb capacity on the back, but when plugged in it is only 600gb. (I had a Freeagent go which was 200gb but only showed 180gb!! Must be a Freeagent thing!!)
There are some light scratches on the base shown in picture 4.
Picture 2 shows its capacity, I used this external HDD on Vista Pro and now on Windows 7 HP.

IIRC the size difference is to do with the way in which the size of the drive is measured, something to do with manufactuers seeing 1000MB as a GB, but the OS seeing 1024MB as a GB, that combined with the size taken up by the File system etc.
