My Hard Drive recently died on my Sony Vaio (VGNFW235JH). The HD was a 250GB 5400rpm Serial ATA hard drive. I spoke with a Sony representative, and he said I needed to replace the HD with the exact same model, which is 250 dollars. Here is the link he gave me:
I did some looking around on the internet and saw some HDs that were much cheaper than that. Here is one I found:
My question is are HDs universal? If I bought this HD will it fit and function in my Sony Vaio? Sometimes I see the number 3.5" in HD desciption, does this indicate that HDs come in different sizes? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
that is crazy price for a 250GB drive!
that price is really good! but it is a 3.5" drive witch will not fit in you laptop!! you need to get a 2.5" drive to fit in you laptop.this
is what you need or something simulair to this
hdd in general are universal i have put Westerndigital drives in toshiba's, toshiba drives in dell pc's and the all worked fine.
the only thing i'm not sure about is if it works with your OEM operating system. but i will look in to that for you and get back to you as soon i got a answer!
if you buy this drive it will not work in your sony like i stated before you need a 2.5" drive
yes hard drives come in different sizes 1.8" 2.5" and 3.5" are the most used sizes
