Im looking to buy a new hard drive for my laptop, as my hard drive is only 160gigs and well I want a bigger one to hold all my crap without needing an external. My current drive is 160gb 7200 rpm, so I am aiming for better then that. There are the two I am looking at so far,
WD 500gb, 7200rpm, Newegg.com - Western Digital Scorpio Black WD5000BEKT 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Hitachi 500gb, 7200rpm, Newegg.com - HITACHI Travelstar H2IK5001672SP (0S02858) 500GB 7200 RPM 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with either, Ive had WD before and worked fine just wondering if anyone has used these specific ones or just has general input about who produces high quality drives.
This is for a Lenovo w500 laptop. I looked at some of the 1TB drives for shits and giggles but they are larger then my computer can handle i think. My current drive is, 9.5mm x 70mm x 100mm.
