Does NOT work with Dell Inspiron 1545

Nathan S., Amazon

  • Summary: This 7mm thick drive does NOT work with the Dell Inspiron 1545. The 1545 requires a 9.5mm thick drive because of the way the hard drive caddy is designed.

There are other hard drives out there

Matthew P., Newegg
19 March 2014
  • Summary: You get what you pay for but if the quality control isn't the greatest I feel 40 dollars would have been more reasonable for a budget hit or miss 500GB drive. Price 69.99 ~2013 The replacement drive now sits on the bench in case I absolutely NEED to use it for something.
  • Pros: It was inexpensive. The replacement seems ok now.
  • Cons: The first one I received had bad sectors which caused a head ache installing windows 7 and ultimately lead to unacceptable operation with errors often in the OS. This was a drive ordered for someone else to be installed by myself so when the issues arose it took more time getting the PC back to the owner. I ended up going to best buy and getting a cheap Seagate for 50 bucks, which installed fine and I have not heard back from the owner regarding the drive in over a year.

Daniel W., Newegg
20 February 2014
  • Summary: Replaced a bad drive in an H/P Probook. This drive is well suited to the task. I've been very satisfied with WD drives.
  • Pros: Quiet, reasonably fast. Excellent price. No issues after about a month of use. Well matched to the laptop it went into.
  • Cons: None so far.
