          • Better performance

          I was able to upgrade the Notebook by myself without having to have special skills. I followed simple instructions I found in internet about how to restore a disk image. I also found a video indicating how to open the notebook and install the new HDD.

          Actually, still don't know

                Still haven't installed this. Ordered it but Crucial was vague about when it might arrive. Ordering process was confusing as I needed it right away to install and leave the country for work so I paid extra for expedited shipping. They called and informed me that all HDs were sent in 3-5 days from someone else. Don't know if I ever got credit. As the online tracking could not tell me when or where it was, I bought another from Staples and installed. Then, miraculously, the Crucial one showed up on doorstep without warning or notification. It is still sitting in box as a backup. Disappointed.

                  Best Uses

                  • Great storage capacity

                  I installed this HDD in a Toshiba lap top and
                  worked fine. Has faster data transfer rate than the old HDD and hold a lot of files.
