Hi,

 

You MUST use SATA, no choice. Probably you are talking about SSD. There are many standard HDD's around. I bought one of the following HDD's last week to test few things - much cheaper elsewhere

You can buy Toshiba, WD, Hitachi, ...

 

Regards.

I know I have to use Sata...lol....It's late, i'm tired.  I came back to correct this before anyone caught it.  I meant SSD!  Sorry about that!  I'm looking for something that's going to last longer than the original.  I bought this PC Dec. 2013 and my hard drive is clicking very bad, want to replace and clone before it crashes.  I think the original should have lasted longer since I take good care and don't tote it around.  It is what it is.  Thanks for info.

I looked at that HD, notice it only has 2 yr. warranty.  My current HD is dying  in less than 3 yrs.  I was wondering if this one would work or would the faster speed cause my PC to run hot.

WD Black 1TB Performance Mobile Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 32MB Cache 9.5 MM 2.5 Inch - WD10JPLX

 I do some gaming, mostly Sims3.   My PC is Envy 17t-j100, 8GB DDR3 System Memory  (2 Dimm),  1TB 5400 rpm HD, 24GB flash Hard drive Acceleration Cache. NVIDIA GeForce GT740M Graphics w/2048MB

Personally, I would go with the WD Black/5 yr warranty. The 7200rpm drive will run a bit warmer but if you are gaming on the laptop it is probably heating up more doing that. I would suggest using a laptop cooling pad with fan if you aren't using one. That will likely extend the life of your new hdd, as well as other components.
