Will this work?
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Western...ern Digital - Scorpio &cp=1&lp=3#BVRRWidgetID
not showing up, however most 2.5" SATA drives will work and all.
so what exactly are you trying to figure out?
The link was a best buy link for a Western Digital - Scorpio 320GB Internal SATA Hard Drive for Laptops.
* 320GB maximum storage capacity
* SATA interface
* Data transfer rates up to 3 Gbps
* 7200 rpm for fast read/write times
* 12 ms average seek time
* 16MB cache
* Compatible with PC and Mac
Man the drive above had a lot of people on newegg pissed. It died in 6 and 8 months for some. Then did not work at all for some.
My own experience with that drive is mixed. Bought two, one died within perhaps 3-4 months. RMA'd it and the second one had issues too. 3rd unit seems to be fine now. The second one I bought has not had any issues at all.
Thanks I'll pass.
If you were referencing the Scorpio Black 320gb, the great majority of reviewers highly rate the drive. They have a fantastic reputation for performance and reliability. However, as with most electronics and particularly mechanical harddrives, there are some that will fail. But on the whole, the Scorpio Blacks are highly rated laptop harddrives.
Not really a fan, i bought one and it was both noisy and vib prone.
What about the Seagate Momentus XT drives? The hybrid ones with 4 GB of SSD memory.
$95 until the end of October.
I almost put that drive in my last pro. But I ended up with the Seagate alternative and its still in the laptop that I sold to my sister last year.
I got this one - runs great, quiet, no vibration, and no extra battery drain. Very impressive for a 7200rpm drive
All of my WD drives either stopped working or I just threw in the trash because WD refused to give me a replacement. My nearly 3 year old Seagate is still chugging along. My Hitachi drives are also working great.
That HDD is amazing but I'm holding onto my money now since I'm kinda over kill my wallet this month with all these new Apple products.
I'll wait for SSD when the time and price is right.
How does this work?
Chaches frequently used stuff into the SSD part and everything else is kept on the HDD part.
