    Where to buy?

    Hitachi Travelstar 60 or 80GB 7200rpm. 2.5" notebook hard drive that is.

    Where to buy?

    Where is a good place that offers a wide variety of hard drives of all capacities and speeds, either online or in a store (name) ? Also, with reasonable competitive prices for notebook hard drives.

    Hard Drive Replacement

    This is what I could find regarding Power Consumption and Temp. for the Fujitsu MHT2080AH 80GB 5400rpm hard drive I am currently looking at. Anyone know the specs for the Hitachi 60GB (or 80gb) 7200rpm hard drive or where the specs can be found? Physical Specifications Power requirements Voltage 5 V± 5% Spin-up 1.0 A max Operating (Read/Write) 2.3W typ. Idle 0.85 W typ. Standby 0.25 W typ. Sleep 0.10 W typ. Dimensions Height 9.5 mm (0.37 in.) Width 70 mm (2.8 in.) Depth 100 mm (3.9 in.) Weight 99 g (3.49 oz.) or less Ambient temperature Operating 5° C to 55° C (41° F to 131° F) Non-operating -40° C to 65° C (-40° F to 149° F) Gradient 20° C (68° F) / H or less Relative humidity Operating 8% to 90% RH (non-condensing) Non-operating 5% to 95% RH (non-condensing) Max wet bulb 29°C (Op.) / 40°C (Non Op.)

    Hard Drive Replacement

    I understand. I actually wasn't even thinking about 'seek noise /idle noise' until you guys brought it up. I was thinking more on the lines of heat caused by the hard drive, thus working the fan on the notebook more, and excess noise in turn, caused by the fan running hard to eliminate the extra heat (caused by hard drive). I want to keep heat/fan noise to a minimum, but still have a decently quick hard drive. From what I take, I think a 5400rpm hard drive will be the best medium. (If I were choosing between a standard Fujitsu 5400rpm hard drive and a Hitachi 7200rpm (60GB) that is).

    Hello? Anyone? Just want to clarify...

    Hard Drive Replacement

    Read that Hard drive 'round up' before I posted here. (I posted in that 'discussion' category as well. Is the Seagate better? How much more expensive? I really don't want to spend too much more money and have to deal with an outside supplier (different than that of my manufacturer), for service and other reasons ect. Out of the two listed though, how much more heat would you say is produced by that Hitachi, and how much better performance will I see? Or is it so marginal (in ms), that I probably won't see it running my kind of programs, and just be feeling warmth and hearing too much (more than 5400 rpm) noise because of it?
  7. I'm thinking about upgrading a Fujitsu 80GB 5400rpm hard drive, to a 7k60 60gb 7200rpm hard drive (i'm pretty sure it is Hitachi). Will I notice much a a performance boost? How much more heat will actually be produced? I plan to take the notebook as mobile machine and I want to minimize heat and noise. (Apps used include MS Office, web, some photo editing...quite basic stuff, perhaps little gaming). I am just wondering if the performance boost is worth the extra heat and noise produced...if I can, would it be better to go to the 80GB 7200rpm Hitachi appose to the 60GB one? (Keeping in mind capacity is not an issue/concern). Thanks in Advance Momo
  8. Sprockkets (or to anyone who can help): You replaced a 5400rpm Fujitsu with a 7200rpm 80 7k100. When you say 'that thing gets very warm comapared to the 5400rpm", do you mean the 7k100 gets very warm compared to the Fujitsu, or the 'little 180GXP HDD'?
