    Replacement / Seagate Momentus 5400.4

    Looking for a replacement for my Seagate Momentus 5400.4 ST9250827AS hard drive.

    Having issues trying to find a compatible drive for my HP laptop, did find a couple similar as seen below.

    Could really use some help. Thanks for your time.

    I'd get the WD Scorpio Black 7,200rpm...
    All you need is a 2.5" SATA drive....so your options are nice. I'd upgrade to a 7,200rpm. MUCH faster performance, and if you have adequate memory, you don't really get a big hit in battery life (plus the Scorpios are very low in batt consumption anyways..they're 7,200rpm model is about as thirsty as a typical 5,400rpm drive). They have bigger models if you'd like. 16 megs cache too!

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16822136279 So for the same amount of money as the link you have, you get much better performance.

    Cat, you linked him to the Canadian site...

    $5 more in the US, however overall cheaper when you factor in shipping...

    I have installed a few of these, definitely a great drive for a lappy!
