I have a portege R830 - X3310. Unfortunately my HDD gave up and I am thinking of switching to a SSD. Does any one have any idea if a Corsair Force GS will fit? The SSD is a 2.5" disk. I tried searching but was not able to find any information on the dimensions of the HDD used in the laptop. The model no for SSD is CSSD-F240GBGS-BK. edit: The confusion is about some claims on a proprietary connector. I have a standard spinning 500GB hdd.
There's two standard sizes for 2.5 inch hard drives these days. Smaller/Thinner notebooks like ultrabooks systems use 7mm drives and the 'standard' for quite a while has been 9 inch. You should be able to fit a 7 mm drive in a 'larger' bay with no problem but not vice versa.
Looking up the drive model indicates that crucial's upgrade advisor suggests that the m4 works, and thats a 9.5mm drive and the drive on the Toshiba service video looks standard as well. The cosair force is also 9.5mm, so there should be no issues here
