I've been trawling the net to look which hard drive is the best (within a reasonable cost!) for upgrading my macbook from the meager 80GB to a 250GB and this is the one that's regularly mentioned. I've been watching the price and yesterday it was over £85 for the cheapest I could find and now cheaper than having to buy an external hard drive and removing it from the enclosure. With over a £10 saving I thought it was worth reposting, but cautious of ebuyers dynamic pricing policy! :thumbsup:

good deal based on size of data capacity however in terms of quality performance, you should seek for 7200 rpm model.

Is it just me or is this expensive for a 250gb 5200rpm even if it is Western Digital?

I got one of these off of ebay for my macbook, it works perfectly, especially as you consider the original hard drive in the macbook is 5400 anyway, do they do a 7200 drive of this capacity?? (oh and I paid more than this on ebay recently too!)

It's a 2.5" laptop HDD, hence the price difference :thumbsup:

I think people are missing the fact that it's 2.5". There are very few 7200rpm 2.5" drives (as they are mostly designed for laptops - extra speed = extra heat).

Nice price for a 2.5" hd.

Good one, hot post!

To whoever might be interested, note that for an extra tenner you can get the external version (free delivery):

I'd only use a 7200rpm drive with a laptop if you don't want it portable. They'll cut your battery life otherwise.

Excellent price, any idea if this can be swapped for the 20gig drive on the 360?

dynamic pricing?

Price needs adding to title

Think this is the next thing I'll be getting after a new sound system:thumbsup:

Appreciate that the original price has expired, but if anybody is interested then it is well worth checking back regularly to see if the price has come down. It's what I meant in my earlier post regarding ebuyer's dynamic pricing policy!!

http://gameworlddirect.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=211&products_id=2938 Isn't this a better offer?



Yes, but unfortunately that wouldn't work for a PS3 as a PS3 only accepts SATA hard drives.

And also for laptops/PS3s the 7200rpm would generate too much heat.

Also, bought one of these earlier at £85. Still a great price so not bothered about the extra £10. Will stop me worrying about filling up my 60GB PS3 lol.
