Hi Kendoe,

of course big price differences, The technical differences are:

 

                           cache (MB); Ampere Peak(5V); Power W (read/write); standby W; acoustic (dBA); Height mm; Weight

wd5000mpck: 16                ; 0,9                            ; 1,5                               ; 0,15           ; 15-17               ; 5                  ; 0,07 kg

wd5000lpvx:    8                   ; 1                               ; 1,4                               ; 0,13           ; 17-21               ; 7                  ; 0,09

 

But the big difference is the connector!!!! wd5000mpck use a SFF-8784 Edge connector (5mm) and the wd5000lpvx a "standard" SATA 6 connector!

 

So need a different connector first. I installed a SSD with 6,8mm Height, and it was very tight, but works. I got the new connector from Lenovo´s shop (8 Euro) (only on request), more than 6 times less than other shops or ebay, but maybe it is different in USA.

 

Look for this part: HDD cable Lenovo P/N: 90204934 (Vienna HDD cable SEAGET) (SATA connector)

 

If i have to change my harddisk, i would install a SSD again! ;-) (256GB (128GB would be enough for system and few files) and large files on an external harddisk)

 

I hope this helps for your decision!

Helix2000,

 

Thanks for the reply, I had already ordered the wd5000lpvx..when it came in I started the swap only to realize when I opened the laptop that the connectors where different, at that point I spent couple of hours looking for the cable (90204934) and finally found it..it just shipped today so hopefully I'll get it next week and i can get this thing back up.

 

Thanks for the response
