      ThinkPad 500GB 7200rpm SATA 3.0Gb/s 7mm 4k Hard Drive - Overview

      The ThinkPad 500GB 7200rpm SATA 3.0Gb/s 7mm 4k Hard Drive option (0A65632) provides a robust thin design enabling a seamless upgrade from the primary hard drive of supported ThinkPad laptops. This option provides good storage size, advanced format, SATA data transfer capabilities, and 7200rpm disk speeds providing almost desktop like performance. The Advance Format or 4k sector emulates the 512 sector drives while delivering higher capacity points along with improved error correction capabilities. The ultimate benefit of higher HDD density and better yield at a lower cost per gigabyte.

      For additional storage and backup install this drive as a second hard drive using the 9.5mm ThinkPad Serial Hard Drive Bay Adapter III (43N3412) or 12.7" ThinkPad Serial Hard Drive Bay Adapter III (0A65623).
