I am pretty sure that my hard drive is dead. Vista basically disappeared off the computer and I can't find the C: even with the Vista repair or UBCD - SO, I am looking to replace it. Model: Hitachi HTS541660J9SA00 5400RPM SATA 2.5" .... I have been looking at a WD Scorpio Black 7200 RPM SATA 2.5-inch and need to know if that would work or what I need to look for in making sure it is compatible. Thankss.

if your computer came with 5400 rpm then I would stick with this speed. Western Digital has great products IMO, I have owned many and none have failed. (and I have had many Hitachi's that did).

Ok, I guess I'll stick to 5400 RPM. Anyone have any brand recommendations? This is what I'm looking at now. http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Scor...5828&sr=1-1 I don't need that many Gb, but it seems like a good deal...

Wow, you arn't kidding. I really appreciate your input and thanks for looking for me. The Hitachi was only... 3 years old. When I tested it, 97% of it was damaged. lol. What crap. I'll go with the Seagate. Thanks.
