Dell :: WD Raptor (10k RPM) Vs. Notebook Drives

Apr 17, 2009

I currently have a 74gig raptor in my desktop, and I'm going to switch to a notebook for college.

I was wondering how the 7200rpm drives on the m1330 and m1530 compare to this.

Dell :: M1730XPS/F22 RAPTOR Of Laptops!

Apr 25, 2009

I wanted to spend time on this unit before I gave it my review. In general this is a very impressive laptop both visually and electronically. Initially upon its arrival after pulling off the envelope cover all I could say was "WOW",

and being educated as an Engineer I was shocked that I could ever get this excited about a laptop! The speed is more than impressive!!!!

The smooth shinny surfaces resemble the carbon fibre of the F-22 Raptor fighter jet, as well as state of the art lighting, to go with.

It's like having the Las Vegas strip in a laptop with complete control of all the colors,intensity,as well as other lighting features like the backlit keyboard and strobe light feature for incoming e-mail.

Dell :: XPS 1710 And SSD Drives

May 30, 2010

I've had an XPS 1710 for 3.5 years and am itching for an upgrade, but I'm doing my best to wait for the xps16 refresh. I'm started to get a bit irritated with the speed of my 160gb 5400 rpm laptop drive so I was thinking of upgrading to a SSD while I wait.

Dell :: Studio 17: 1 Or 2 Disk Drives

Mar 3, 2010

I just checked out Dells web site for the Studio 17 and on the menu you can select 1 500G drive or 2 320G drives.

Does the Studio 17 have slots for two drives ??

If not, does the second drive just come in an extra box ??

What manufacture drives does Dell use these days ?

Dell :: System Restore All Drives?

Feb 24, 2009

I have the following 3 drives on my Dell XPS 1530 notebook as it came from Dell :

1)Drive C :Which has all the Windows files
2)Drive D: Which has other files
3)Drive E :Which has the Recovery files

So far I have enabled System Restore only for Drive C.

Is it advisable to enable System restore for Drives D and E also ?

Im particularly asking for Drive D as system restore eats lots of space if it is enabled in Drive D.

Are there any risks if system restore is not enabled for Drive D and E

I've noticed the improvements are relevant but not as big as I expected, I think with normal HD the RAID0 performance will be much better than a single HD drive, any experience using SSD in RAID0 configuration

Dell :: Can You Install Two Drives On A Studio 14 (1458)?

Apr 21, 2010

just wondering if it was possible. I want to add an SSD to the studio 1458 in place of the optical drive.

I don't use an optical drive very often, but I will have my SSD from my other system laying around.

I know there are brackets, but can someone suggest a good site for them? Also, is it difficult to make such a conversion?

Dell XPS L421x :: Ultrabook With Two Drives - Why Not Boot From The SSD

May 1, 2013

I recently received my new XPS 14 (L421x) ultrabook.  Out of the box, this machine has a 500Gb C: drive labeled "OS" and a second 110Gb SSD D: drive labeled "Data".  Windows 8 is installed on the C: drive.  There is absolutely nothing on the D: drive.

Does this sound right?  I would have thought that you would want to have the OS on the SSD and boot from that (much faster?) drive.

Dell :: 5 Failed Hard Drives In 4 Months! New XPS 1530

Nov 23, 2008

I bought an XPS 1530 four months ago. I went through 4 hard drives - one would fail, Dell would send a replacement ... that was the cycle. After #4 Hard Drive failed (and a tech came out to try and replace the motherboard & hard drive without success), I finally got them to agree to a "System Exchange"..

They sent me a new XPS 1530 - within 2 days the Hard Drive died! (#5)..

Anyone have any ideas (besides bad luck) of what could cause 5 failed hard drives in two different brand new systems?..

Electrical? I used the laptop at home and at my office. My office is a rented space inside another company's building.

I thought maybe electrical, but I use my old laptop their (Dell Inspiron 6000) and it has been fine. Unless something electrical causes a problem in the XPS only for some specific reason.

I have no idea, but does anyone have any "out of the box" explanations for me?

Dell is sending me a box so I can mail this 2nd laptop in to the Dell Depot for inspection and repair. My faith in the XPS 1530 is zero.

Any ideas or advice?

Dell :: Which Hard Drives Will Work In A Vostro 1700

Jan 17, 2009

I have two seperate questions to ask, so will post them seperately.

I have a Vostro 1700 with a 250gb drive in it. When I bought it I had a problem with the laptop and managed to get a hard drive caddy free from Dell, so just need the drive. I know it needs to be a SATA 2.5 drive, but will any drive fit, or do I need to go for any specific ones? Is the Vostro SataII?

Sony :: Hard Drives Possible In Z

Apr 25, 2009

how many hard drives could fit in the Vaio Z, because on the SonyStyle site when configuring the HD's and choosing for example 256GB SSD it shows 2x128GB SSD. Does this mean 2x SSD hard drives? If so then I'm wondering why they don't make the option available to put in 2x256GB SSD's. Also, if 2 SSD's are possible, are 2 standard 2,5" spinning HD's possible?

HP/Compaq :: Blu Ray Drives In Your Notebooks

Jan 11, 2009

my notebook has the optiarc 5500S BD Rom and I've only had it for a couple days. I've tried a few blu rays using quickplay but the playback is a little stuttery, especially when skipping from scene to scene. Overall, playback is fairly smooth but my eyes are really picky and I can tell it's not as smooth and fluid as it would be if I were to watch it on my ps3.

I'm wondering if PowerDVD (blu ray version) would be smoother. What are your experiences with blu ray on your notebooks and what software do you use?
