binäre optionen trading academy So, you’ve seen the new 1TB 2.5″ drives, and you’re wondering if you can put one in your notebook? The answer seems to be no, not yet. My searches on the web suggest that the Western Digital 2.5″ drives over 750GB have an internal USB connector, rather than a SATA connector, on the drive’s PCB, so they’re useless as internal drives. Crazy decision by WD there, if true. So, I turned to the only 1TB 2.5″ with a SATA connector internally, the Seagate FreeAgent 1TB. The bad news? it’s not the standard 9.5mm (no drive over 512GB currently is). But it’s also not 12mm (the old standard, and the size of WD’s 750GB 2.5″, which some notebooks, like Macbook Pros, can still accommodate. It’s 14mm! 14mm? WTH is this? I’ll tell you what it is: laziness. Laziness, and 1.5mm too thick to fit in a 17″ macbook pro unibody. So, there is no solution larger than WD’s 750GB at this time, internally. Time to figure out what I can delete or archive, I guess.

The newer ones, as linked here, are smaller enclosures, and it seems WD got the size down by removing the SATA to USB PCB by going to a drive-mounted PCB with no sata. That means you’re not going to be able to use the newer style drives internally.
