Seagate integrators and OEM customers are faced with an increasing demand for thinner yet fully functional mainstream laptop computing solutions. Until recently, the only option for these thinner solutions revolved around high-priced, slow performing 1.8-inch drives and high-priced, fast solid state drives. Because both storage types were costly options, system designers had no choice but to build thinner chassis only for their high-end lines. Enter Seagate ingenuity.

I put this in an external case, and now its the backup drive for my laptop.
purchased an internal hard drive less then three months ago. grey screen today. contacted support and i get a link to deal with the manufacturer. no support and its not their problem, i exceeded my days of help or exchange or return, its my problem now.
I plan to replace my System HD with a Crucial M500 6GB 240GB, and my data drive (used also for P3D V2.2 flight simulator) with a Crucial M500 480GB. These drives are presently C:\ and H:\
Could you please advise:
1. Does the new SSD require formatting before use? I intend each to have only one partition.
2. I have EaseUS Todo backup software which can backup each of these drives. If I replace the old drives, using the same sockets, and then use an EaseUS boot disk to restore each relevant backup to each new SSD, C backup restored to C, and H to H, will the changeover be complete, with the computer unaware of the change?
I am running Win7-64 on an ASUS P868-V Pro motherboard.
Thank you for any help you can give.
Regards, Jim H.
Thanks for contacting us. Defragging can save time for the cloning process so you may go ahead and perform a defrag. It's definitely not necessary, however.
Thanks for contacting us. Yes, they are essentially the same thing and will both be able to be used to clone your desktop
Thanks for your message. I have looked in to that system and it will use one of our SSD's no problem at all. We actually sell an internal 2.5" to 3.5" converter on our website.
You can find the part located HERE and we also sell an external enclosure if you would like to use your current hard drive is back up when the SSD is installed. You can see the external enclosure HERE
You will certainly notice a massive different in performance from installing an SSD in your system. An SSD is up to 21x faster than a standard hard drive, so you'll notice it right away.
If you do have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask and I would be more than happy to help.
I have a Dell XPS M1330, build date 01/08/2008. It is still working great but I want to upgrade to a SSD. My drive seem to have an extra connector that the SSD's don't have. Does anyone know if an SSD will work in my system. The
Crucial M500 240GB 2.5-inch Internal SSD is the recommended drive but I don't see the extra connector that my drive has.
