Good price for this Thanks edi!

Good price, is it a generally a complicated operation installing a laptop drive or does it totally depend on the chassis? I've got an 80gb Samsung installed so i'm quite tempted - if I had just a 40gb i'd upgrade for sure

Usually its a couple of screws and a pull out carriage or a flap.

Cheaper at Ebuyer I'm afraid:

Fujitsu 120GB 2.5" 5400RPM ATA100 8MB Cache - OEM

~This post is surplus to requirements as the above drive at Ebuyer is now stock~

Good price for a 120GB @ 5400.

Installing a laptop hard drive is usually very easy - if you can get the old one out, the new one will just screw in. You will have to reinstall everything from scratch, though.

A few laptops use SATA, now - but not many.

Pretty much all Dells are now SATA so be careful to make sure what yours is before purchase.

No need to do that, I replaced my HDD the other week and this is how to do it without reinstalling the operating system and all your software etc etc.

Step 1, buy a 2.5" external HDD enclosure from ebay. (note this will be really useful later as you can put your old drive in it and it makes a great removable drive and best of all need no power lead needed! most will power from the USB)

Step 2, Download the full copy of Paragon disk copy 8 here (its free and they email you the key):

(still available even though it says ended Nov 2006)

Step 3, your on the home straight, put your new disk in the enclosure, use Paragon to make an exact copy then swap the drives over, simple.

Step 4, wait a few days and if all is well put the old drive in the enclosure reformat it and you have a very nice and small portable drive (in my case 40GB, nice) that is self powered, small enough to fit in your pocket and can have huge storage.

Cost: £10 or less for enclosure which is very usable later :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Some will say install a new operating system and have a fresh start but why if its all working well would you want to go through all that hassle for nothing, you have to dig out all the software find the keys, no thanks!

ive got a toshiba satellite laptop, any ideas what sort of hard drive i will need?

mine is a 3yr old Toshiba Satellite P30 and it takes a standard 2.5" ATA drive as posted here.

I've got an external IBM USB 2.5" drive. Just 20 GB. I just opened it and (unsurprisingly) there was a 20 GB 2.5" PATA drive there. I was thinking of getting one of the drives from ebuyer to stick in my Thinkpad to replace the 40 GB one. I could swap the 20 GB in the enclosure for the 40 GB from my Thinkpad. Bonus.


Incidentally there is this to add into the mixer :

A whopping 0.1 % now I'm afraid for ebuyer whilst they run down the days until they withdraw from affiliate schemes altogether.

[edit].... Fair point about the warranty.... I'd just plunged for the Fujitsu at ebuyer as it's slightly cheaper. However, I just cancelled it on the basis of paying £2 for 2 years extended warranty is not a bad deal. might get it quicker than from ebuyer too.

Finally got around to installing this (the Samsung) over the weekend and am very happy. My laptop seems a bit nippier than previously and no longer freezes up periodically. Of course this may be down to a fresh windows install which is long overdue but 5400 RPM instead of 4200 RPM must be helping too.

My old 40 GB is now in a caddy too.

Had a lot of trouble with Windows as my OEM XP Pro wasn't on disk only on the old HDD. One OEM disc (ahem) accquired a quick call to Microsoft and I'm all validated.
