Looking for new 17" machines I soon realised that I'd be paying for features that I would have no need of, and none matched the excellent connectivity of the P200D (6x USB, Firewire 400, Expresscard slot, S-Video and the usual VGA port)and as I don't play games or do video editing for example, my mind turned to upgrading my existing machine. I increased the RAM to 4GB which is the maximum my machine can take and looked around for a replacement hard drive of at least 500GB capacity. I was surprised to come across this model which runs at 7200rpm, and which surprised me as I had assumed hard drives for laptops etc were of the 5400rpm variety. And it is Toshiba branded to boot.
I called upon the assistance of a computer expert to clone the old drive for me and I am delighted with the results. Along with the upgrade to the RAM the laptop is now much more responsive and software runs faster, as expected, but this must also be due in no small measure to the fast speed of this drive which can access data much more quickly. It makes hardly any noise, I have to listen intently to hear anything, and the laptop runs just a little warmer, judged by the air exiting the vents. But the increase is only just noticeable.
I don't know if this will be pertinent to other laptops or users, but my "subscores" in the Windows assesment programme have increased from 5.5 to 5.7 for the RAM increase, and from 5.0 to 5.9 for the hard drive.
So for a very moderate outlay I have significantly improved the performance of my laptop without the need to buy a new one.
Should anyone else be looking for an upgrade to their 2.5" hard drive, going for this 7200rpm model would seem worthwhile.
as a side note: i am not a computer wiz. My computer wouldn't turn on and all i could hear was a clicking sound coming from the back. I took it apart and realized the cilcking sound was from something that looked like this. a few google searches and i come across this and order it with next day delivery. plug it in and run my windows CD and bam! i'm back on my laptop. ;)
Is not too bad, in fact is quiet enough. Dell has replaced my hard drive with Toshiba one as well, but my 2 years old Hitachi is much quieter! Thou Toshiba is a bit faster.
Toshiba line is interesting. I have a LED TV and I am very pleased. It might be with the hard drive too. I will see how long it will last.
Amazon delivery as always, spot on!
My Toshiba laptop had an 80bg hard drive which is now too small for my photos, videos etc, so I wanted to clone the hard drive onto a much bigger hard drive. I bought this one because it was Toshiba like the old one, and had the same speed of revolution, 7200rpm.
The cloning process was described in the Bipra review, the disk has worked perfectly so far, is very quiet, I may buy another one and use it to clone the new one as an exact backup.
