I have an Acer5250 with a Samsung HN-M750MBB inside.
I would like an SSD hard drive and am looking at a Seagate 500 GB Laptop 2.5" Internal SSHD.
This hard drive is said to be made with the new, slimmer, laptops in mind.
Does this mean it will be the wrong size for my laptop, or does the extra slimness not affect how it will sit in my laptop?
Would it be suitable for my older laptop and safe for me to purchase?
Thank you in advance for any help you can give
Post the links for us and would give better info. 2.5" drives come as 12.5 mm and 9 mm and 7 mm slim drives. 12.5 mm I think are largely redundant but you never know. Remove the drive and measure the thickness.
Note an SSHD is a hybrid drive. Neither an SSD nor an ordinary Sata drive but a botch-up.
When you say botch up do you mean not worth bothering with? Money is a difficulty at the moment and this drive came at a very good price.
If it isnt worth buying though then it will become expensive!
Thanks for both replies.
Acer5250, which model? What OS? If WIN 7 go for the neither here nor there hybrid drive. The ssd part of the drive will only be used as a cache and you will be able to boot slightly faster and some apps will load slightly quicker. But that is all.
Do you have problems with the OS as is? Is that why you are thinking along the lines of a new hard drive/SSD?
