Hard drive for Thinkpad L450

My Thinkpad L450 came with a 500GB drive (Seagate I think). The OS was Win7 pro which I upgraded to Win10 pro. I would like to upgrade the HD to a much larger capacity (not really care about performance, so not considering SSD). From the document for L450, it supports 500GB to 1TB HD.

 

I want to know whether I can replace the original 500GB HD with a 2TB HD (same speed, 7200rpm).

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Hard drive for Thinkpad L450

Hi sorcererstone,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding Hard drive upgrade for ThinkPad L450.

2TB should work fine IMO as a primary storage but still suggestion will be to order from vendor with good return policy. 

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,

Re: Hard drive for Thinkpad L450

Prabhansh, Thanks for feedback. From what you said and since the original 500MB drive is from Seagate, I am going to get the 2TB Seagate Baracuda 7mm drive:

I also have a more pressing problem with my other Lenovo laptop. I wonder if you are kind enough to give me some guidance and what-to-do advise. I posted it a few hours ago in the following URL:

Re: Hard drive for Thinkpad L450

Prabhansh: Thanks for the confirmation of the suitability of the 2TB Seagate drive. That 2TB Seagate drive is 7mm (thick). The original 500 MB drive in this laptop is from Seagate. I think it is 7mm (thick). Would you be kind enough to confirm this info for me. If it is, then I will order the 2TB drive.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, even the stock 500GB hard drive is of 7mm and also this hard drive slot can fit drives upto 9mm.

 

Cheers,
