Thinkpad E520 Hard drive upgrade

Apologies if this has been asked before.

 

I want to upragrade my E520 hard drive from its current 250GB to 1TB.

Can anyone recommend a good option for the Thinkpad E520.

 

Thanks.

Re: Thinkpad E520 Hard drive upgrade

first thought is: a) must be 7200 rpm - because it's fast, and vibration is less,

 b) must be sata of course and sized 2,5 inch,

 

and in polish distribution are:

 

- Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500 GB (7200, 16MB, Serial ATA/300)

- Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500 GB (7200, 16MB, Serial ATA/300)

- Seagate Momentus 500 GB (7200, 16MB, Serial ATA/300)

- Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB (7200, 32MB/4GB SSD, Serial ATA/300)

- Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB (7200, 32MB/8GB SSD, Serial ATA/600)


conclusions:

- at the moment there's no more space than 750GB in logical price for use,

- maybe ssd drives will be soon available, but those drive are very affective, and they are so much often send to

  service than typical drives;

- those last two are equipped with ssd memory, which makes REAL big write/read buffer as well as makes your hard drive real faster and most safest - the sooner data will be written or read, sooner all operation will be finished without data loose.

 

Cheers!
