Seagate makes it really easy to tell the physical size of the drive. Just
check the first number of the drive model against this chart.

Form Factor
1 	3.5-inch, half-height, 1.6-inch high
2 	5.25-inch, half-height, 1.6-inch high
3 	3.5-inch, low-profile (LP), 1-inch high
4 	5.25-inch, full height
5 	3.5-inch, 0.75-inch high
6 	9-inch
7 	1.8-inch
8 	8-inch
9 	2.5-inch, 0.75-inch high

I haven't been able to find similar info from other companies.
