Good price for a big 2.5" drive!

nice price

Anyone know what I'd need to get one of these working in a Dell Studio 17 laptop? I know the sata interface isn't standard ???

Thanks, I thought I needed a caddy and an interface adaptor. . .

I'll go and order one..

Not good, not knowing what brand. Many people have had bad experiences from a particular brand that they would rather avoid.

Go to Dell's website and they'll have instructions. Usually takes less than 5 minutes to swap out hard drives on standard size laptops but it's often much worse on Netbooks or small form factor laptops.

Thanks for that, but I wanted to add it as a 2nd drive rather than replace the one that's there now, so I guess I do need a caddy and sata interface ?

Good deal if it's a WD, perhaps there is a way to find out before you buy.

are the 500gb 2.5" drives not 12mm thick therefore will not fit in most laptops... i got the hitachi one last year and had to send back cos of this problem, most 2.5" drives only 9mm thick...

Yes for that laptop you will need a kage there an adaptor for sata to "dell" attached to it. I would look to see if dell sell them seperatly via there website.

Also the adaptor for the hard drive will come if you order a replacement hard drive for a warrenty repair. You could ask enginner nicly to leave one with u if your ever getting next buisness day call out.

I really like the fact that this laptop had a secondary hard drive slot but just a shame that u need to get the adaptor for it. Needs to be that way for the way the laptop is put together.

Hope this has helped.

Will this work in a PS3?

Totally agree I wouldn't put anything other than a wd scorpio or a seagate momentus in my laptops. If it's getting chucked in a external hdd case I dont suppose it matters.

Yeah, this may be 12.5mm thick and therefore won't fit in most laptops.

It is a small risk only if Novatech is getting rid of old stock as the current Hitachi is 9.5mm thick as is the current Fujitsu, whilst the first iterations of the 500gb in either was 12.5mm.
If you are very unlucky you might get saddled with an old Toshiba spinning at 4200rpm. Might be worth ringing up first to check what they have in stock.

for some dell laptops that take 2 drives, you need a metal case/caddy that holds the drive in place and an adapter that connects the sata connections. apparently you can get them on ebay, but i'd suggest calling dell first, see if you can blag one free. you can't fit the drive without it as the sata connection on the drive sticks straight out, but on the laptop it's on the bottom

Should work fine, tempted to get one for mine.

Never purchase a HDD without knowing the brand name.

I'd probs pay ~£7 more for the Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500gb: hotukdeals.com/ite…b-/

Can I use this to upgrade a MacBook Pro 13"? (New June 09 model)

Not sure what size the HDD has to be...

If the drive supplied is over 9mm in height it won't fit in the PS3.

Only if it is 9mm in height.

I would assume these are 12.5mm drives unless they say otherwise.

nice..........
