Identifying Pin1 on new HDD

Hi
I have a 2.5" drive here just waiting to be installed but im a bit paranoid about plugging the cable in the wrong way round!
Pin1 is clearly written on my sx1 module mb but the hdd has no numbers on the back.

Am i right to assume pin1 is on the left when the drive is looked at the right way up from behind?

...................... ..

1--------------44

Is that right?

What is the name and type of your hard disk?
If you tried searching the internet to find out more about your drive. I would never assume anything.
Here some links for HD manufactures.
Hitachi DK series 2.5'' HD
Maxtor Quantum

Fujitsu

Seagate

Hope it will helps.
