I wouldn't think that is it worth buying a new driver to gain 250 gigs. Since you stated that you have the 500 gig version of this fast drive.

I would think that you are better off getting an external HDD and just remove some items off your current hdd if it is getting full. You can get 2tb for about $100 on sale. My friend got one at costco a month ago for $90.

Unless of course you have two hdd slots in your laptop and just want the storage. But you could also get an ssd at that point and use your current one for storage.

I have seen several posts about this type of drive, I was just wondering what the hype was.
All I can determine so far is the low price. They are not fast nor are they really anything that special compared to say wd's velociraptor. Just that they cost four times more. I am probably wrong, but still curious.

OOPPPPZ I'm sorry I just realized that this was a laptop drive.

Screw it. Put your money in a new SSD fund. Or backup drive.

But that $0.99 shipping charge is off-putting. What cheeky chuffers!

I'll put it this way. If you think it's worth it to sell your current drive to me for $25 shipped, then go ahead and get the 750. :P

Should take less than an hour all prep and implementation actions considered.

If you use something like HDclone, or even a backup/restore program like Macrium Reflect Free Edition or DriveImageXML it's a piece of cake.

With HDclone just connect the new drive via USB and clone the source drive directly to the new drive.

With the freeware backup programs, just perform a system partition backup to a backup file on some other partition or HDD, and "restore" to the new drive via USB or other supported connection. You can either do it on the source system (with some manipulation), or on a second system and then move the new drive to the source system.
If you decide to use a MRFE "rescue" disc (that you create using the program) to perform the restoration, make sure it boots after you create it before spending time on backup/restore attempts. If you use a second system to restore the OS to the new drive, of course the rescue disc isn't needed.

All the above are freeware, and as far as I recall support USB. The freeware versions all have the restriction that the "target" drive/partition be at least as large as the original. If you want one even larger system partition afterwards, you can use freeware Partition Logic or Partition Magic to enlarge the "new" system partition.

1. Back up your 500GB to external as per Johns post.
2. Order another 500GB Scorpio black
3. Install, set up RAID 0.
4. Restore the back-up to a 500GB partition on your RAID.

Be happy knowing you've increased the burst and sequential transfer rates of already fast drives :)
