Recently upgraded to one of these 320GB/7200
They do a 400GB & 500GB version but only at 5400
Now I have my shiny new laptop it only came with a 250GB 5400rpm drive. With a budget of £100 what HD would you get if you were after a new drive. Big and fast please
We can supply a Seagate 500GB 7200-rpm but with a 10 day lead time for £110+vat Free Delivery!
320gb/7200rpm is about as big and fast as you can get unless you spend more on a Western Digital 2.5"/300gb raptor (250ish?) or go for a 500gb/5400 Western Digital Scorpio or Samsung (90-100).
I've got 2 of the Samsung units. First one died within hours of unboxing it, but the replacement and second unit have been fine ever since, running backups off 50gig files.
Only other point is to make sure you buy a drive that actually fits your laptop. Fujitsu make a 500gb one but it's a 12mm unit rather than 9.5 - watch out!
Just a thought how about a USB2 external HDD? They're quite cheap these days ...
Think thats defo a notebook drive, you must be thinking of the 10k vraptor.Isn't that just the desktop drive without the headsink, I could imagine that getting a bit warm.
