I don't see why not.  They just have to have the right interface type (SATA) and be physically compatible with the enclosure (i.e. standard 2.5" drive).  Note, 2.5" drives come in a few thicknesses.

 

  • 12.5 mm - these are 3 platter drives that are likely to only fit in larger laptops, and desktops that use 2.5" drives
  • 9.5 mm - this is the most common size and should fit most laptops
  • 7 mm - these drives are used in thinner laptops. Most SSDs are also in this size (often SSD's come with hardware to make them compatible with 9.5mm bays if required).

That particular WD drive has not been well reviewed, as it's SSHD hybrid system is different from that used by Seagate and relies on software support. http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/5741/3/3x-lenovo-y50-70-review-does-wds-sshd-work-as-advertised-troublesome-sshd

Thanks for the reply.. and oh ok I see so if it gets formatted that drive may not be too easy to work with then.. This drive right here though would be a good choice yes?
