Upgrading notebook hard drive
Hello, I purchased a Fujitsu Lifebook with a SATA-1, 5400 rpm drive with Fujitsu 3D shock protection. I would like to upgrade to a bigger SATA-2, 7200 rpm drive. First, will I lose the 3D shock protection? Second, I read that some chipsets do not support slowing down the throughput. Should I suspect any problems?
Because your current drive is sata1, most likely mean your laptop chipset only supports sata1, which is something i wouldnt worry too much about unless its a SSD. As for the shock protection... thatd probably be something built into the HDD id imagine
list of sata2 7200rpm drives there, look at the momentus/constellation/scorpio drives depends on your space needs and price range
Also wats the model of your lifebook?
