Upgrading a new laptops hard drive. Tags: Hard Drives Laptops Hitachi Storage Last response: February 16, 2010 2:47 PM in Storage Share methal February 16, 2010 5:04:21 AM I just got an Asus n61j. i7 laptop. It shipped with an hitachi hard drive. I've never heard much good, nor experienced much good with any hitachi hard drive. I've been working at a laptop company (a really crappy one called pc laptops) for a couple years, and have only had experience with their laptop drives, which are the cheapest WD drives you can get. What I would like to know is this; is this hard drive: Hitachi HTS725032A9A 320gb hard drive any good? if not really what would be a fast, quiet, and cool hard drive to replace it with? (battery life is of no concern to me) Thanks in advance =D More about : upgrading laptops hard drive RetiredChief a b D Laptop a c 353 G Storage February 16, 2010 2:47:29 PM Not sure of date list was compiled http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2.5-hard-drive-chart... or this list http://www.techarp.com/showarticle.aspx?artno=511 http://ixbtlabs.com/articles2/storage/roundup-mobile160...
