Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook
I would appreciate your answer to the following query:
My ze2000 came with 40gigs ... I am looking to upgrade with a minimum of 250gigs more, ideally 320Gb. I don't know which brand/ model to go for "compatibility-wise" ... WD or Seagate?? They range between $75-100 (not an issue).
Once I get the new HDD, I wish to clone my original 40Gb HDD onto it ... later format the 40Gb and use as a storage disk.
I don't know if you can call this a solution but I hope this points you in the right direction...
I personally trust WD over Seagate. Their external drives work like a dream. As for the size you wish to go with, well that is up to you. It really depends on how much you are willing to spend. Sometimes its cheaper to get the bigger size than to get the smaller one and spend more when you fill up what you have. I managed to buy a 500GB HD from Fry's for $130. Before I stray away from the issue, I would choose a WD drive, 320 over 250 GB, and I would get a friend who knows a thing or two about removing a hd from a computer so you can take it with you (just to make sure you get set up with a hd that is compatible).
Other factors that you may run into are RPM speeds. I believe they are 5400 and 7200. The faster it is then the faster things load. I also believe that the faster it is, the hotter it will get and the more power it will require. If you are concerned with getting a bigger hd then stick with what you know works, that being a 5400 rpm drive.
If you are really picky about things, I suggest going to cnet.com and reading reviews on the hd's before buying. Their reviews are very useful, they list user reviews, will compare prices with other vendors who sell the hd being reviewed and tell you if its priced according to performance or overpriced compared to similar models.
Hope that helps...
