  4. any manufactures you recomend? toshiba fijistu? samsung?
  5. It might depend on the A200 model.
    Where I'm working, we have a few different A200 models and we change the hard drive very often. We use any 2.5 sata hard drive, toshiba, seagate, western digital, etc. 5400rpm or 7200rpm.

    Hi :)

    Actually no it isnt...

    Seagate BOUGHT Maxtor...but Maxtor had such a bad reputation in the trade that they kept the factories seperate due to quality control issues...

    My computer companies buy LOTS of hard drives... for both Laptops and Pcs..but NEVER a Maxtor....NOT EVER....

    But we buy Seagates quite happily...

    We do see a LOT of crashed Maxtor drives in customers machines though...lol

    All the best Brett :)
  11. We're using WD Black 320Gb at work for now, no problems.

    We're replacing the ones that came with the laptop.
