You will receive an 160gb IDE/ATA/PATA 2.5" laptop hard drive manufactured by either Fujitsu, Western Digital OR Seagate. There may also be a slight chance that you will receive Samsung , Hitachi or Toshiba branded HDD.

If you have a model or brand preference then please email us after payment and we will do our utmost to fulfil your request. This is ready to use immediately as an upgrade or replacement hard drive storage solution for your laptop/notebook computer. This can also be used as an external hard drive for external storage/backing up files when used in conjunction with a 2.5" IDE external enclosure case. We are Ebay's premier laptop hard drive specialists - accept no imitations. The majority of ebay sellers offering refurbished/new laptop hard drives for sale do not enclose them in anti-static bags and offer no warranty, exchange or returns on their items!. They also do not package them properly and have no aftersales care at all so why settle for anything less?.

Do not be deceived by some Ebay sellers claiming that their hard drives are new hard drives by describing them as "new pulls from unused laptops", this is near impossible as the laptops that they come from are well over 4 years old and are no longer manufactured. Who doesn't use/switch on a laptop for over 4 years and then decides to list the so called "new hard drive" for sale and how often do new laptops come without an operating system pre-installed on it by default?the answer is NEVER.

We believe in honest, fair and realistic pricing that represent great value for money. We do not claim to offer rock bottom prices at the lowest possible price on Ebay as we believe it is more important to ask yourself that the cheapest is rarely the best and also to bear in mind the saying that " You get what you pay for".

Thank you for reading our description for this item which we have dedicated a lot of time and hard work towards.

Any attempt by any other sellers to copy any part of our listings including item descriptions, images or listing titles are in serious breach of Ebay rules and will be reported to Ebay immediately without hesitation.



This laptop hard drive has an IDE interface (this type of hard drive is also known as Parallel-ATA, PATA, P-ATA, ATA, E-IDE, DMA and UDMA) which all consist of two rows of connector pins (the top row consisting of 22 pins and the bottom row consisting of 21 pins). There are also 2 rows of 2 pins at the end. Please note that many IDE 2.5" laptop hard drives have adapters attached to them (as shown on our images near the top of this listing) that fit over the pins and hide them from full view so check carefully first and remove it there is one.

If you require a 2.5" SATA (Serial-ATA) hard drive then please go here: SATA (Serial-ata) 2.5" hard drives

Please note ATA and S-ATA are two different types of hard drives - ATA is IDE and S-ATA is Serial-ATA. If you are unsure what type of hard drive interface your laptop uses, here are some of our top tips to help you choose the correct one.

  • If you know the make and model number of your laptop then type that into Google along with one of these keywords "2.5" hard drive" , " 2.5" HDD" , "IDE" or "SATA" so for example if you have a Sony Vaio PCG-Z1RMP laptop, you'd type in "Sony Vaio PCG-ZIRMP hard drive" , "Sony Vaio PCG-Z1RMP 2.5" hard drive" or "Sony Vaio PCG-Z1RMP 2.5 IDE HDD" into a search engine and you will find out that it uses an IDE laptop hard drive. You can usually locate the model number and make of your laptop from the underside of your laptop.
  • Locate where your hard drive slots into your laptop and examine the connectors. Compare these to the pictures as shown above in our listing and you will be able to match it up correctly.
  • Check your current laptop hard drive brand and model number and type it into a search engine to see what type of interface you need. You will first need to locate your hard drive and then remove it to check for the number after "S/N" , "Model'" or "Model Number". The model number usually varies between the different hard drive manufacturers but usually begins with HT/IC/DK (Hitachi & IBM), WD (Western Digital), ST(Seagate), MH(Fujitsu), MK(Toshiba) or MP (Samsung).
  • All laptop hard drive brands and model numbers that we have known and have dealt with are interchangeable and compatible as long as it uses the correct type of interface.
  • If you know the brand and model of your laptop then you can check the hard drive specification on the manufactures website or you can also refer to any system specification documentation that you may have received with your laptop.



  • All our laptop hard drives are enclosed or sealed in anti-static bags unlike the majority of other ebay sellers who send them wrapped in bubble wrap which generates static electricity and this can damage the hard drive.
  • We are a dedicated specialist business seller of portable laptop storage with over 5000 positive feedbacks.
  • All our prices are very competitive and we are confident that we are the amongst the most competitive against other business sellers. If you require a quote for anything then please contact us and we will be happy to help.
  • Our product range of laptop hard drives is arguably the most diverse on Ebay and online - we can source almost any quantity, size, type or model of hard drive upon request.
  • We have a returns and warranty policy on all our items-many Ebayers sellers don't/are unable to offer any form of policy at all (Just remember the saying that you get what you pay for)
  • We pride ourselves in dispatching all orders as soon as we can which is in 99% of cases, on the same day as long as an order is received before 3pm (excluding weekends and public holidays).
  • We provide honest and reliable advice on all of our products-many other Ebayers and internet retailers do not at all.
  • All our products are properly packaged and handled with care-unlike the majority of Ebay sellers who couldn't care less and send their hard drives in envelopes or jiffy bags which do not provide adequate protection for them.
  • We do not charge extra to send items to addresses in Northern Ireland, The Isle of Man, The Channel Islands or any destination where a British postcode is used. Many ebay sellers and internet companies charge as much as double to send items to more remote parts of the U.K. We believe this is unfair, unnecessary and unjust
  • We are a business seller based in the United Kingdom and by buying from us rather than from abroad, you are not only supporting a local business but you also benefit from faster delivery times, better pricing, better products and faster response times.
