X200 Tablet - recommended hard drive upgrade manufacturers/models

Hopefully there is a simple answer to this seemingly simple question.

 

I need to increase hard drive capacity from 160 GB to either 320 or 500 (preferred), can anyone recommend a suitable drive(s) manu/model known to work with my 2010 X200 Tablet 7448 CTO (Windows 7, 64-bit)?

Most 2.5" SATA HDD would work. I recommend getting something with at least 8mb cache and 7200 rpm. 500GB would be your max since I think the 750GB/1TB models are a bit thicker. Seagate, Western Digital, Samsung, Hitachi are all good brands... I picked up a Seagate Momentus 500GB 7200rpm 8mb cache at Best Buy for under $100 and that comes with a standard 5 year manufacturer warranty.

Re: X200 Tablet - recommended hard drive upgrade manufacturers/models

Thank you Chimuel, I appreciate your reply. I have ordered a WD 500GB/7200 rpm drive ($91 CAD). The vendor's customer reviews were pretty good for this drive.

 

Thanks again....Martin
