    Does anyone know if a 7mm thick slim drive (2.5") will fit in a Toshiba Satellite C655-S5132 laptop? I'm getting chkdsk errors of late, and I have been looking at a 7200rpm drive for a replacement.

    Here's the log file assuming the drive is going bad...

    I think you will need a 9.5mm adapter for a 7mm drive.

    Worth considering an SSD rather than an HD, such as this

    Replacing the 5400rpm drive in my HP laptop with a Samsung 250GB SSD reduced the boot time from 30secs+ to virtually instantaneous.

    Yes, I would agree with Pete's suggestion completely. 240/250 GB SSD's cost about $135 to $160.00NZD currently and they are up to 10 times faster than HDD's. Way to go.;)

    Had to tighten some loose hinge screws today, and while I was disassembling things, I noticed the harddrive was mounted with side screws in a removable housing. Maybe I won't need an adapter after all unless I opt for the SSD. Kind of pricey though for 500GB. :D

    I bought a 500GB SSD (Samsung SSD 850 EVO) for $230.00NZD just over a month ago. They are coming down in price and being offered in Stock clearances.

    So it's safe to assume my drive is dying?

    I think the RED lines tell the story.

    The drive failed Sea Tools long test as well, so that means I need to find a good black Friday deal.
