7mm SSD list / 7mm HD list

UPDATE 2012.05.30: added a list of 7mm SSD and 7mm HDD at the end of this post…

The most-excellent Lenovo Thinkpad X220 laptop supports a rather odd thickness for its hard drive/SSD: 7mm This is unusual since most laptop drives are 9.5mm and some are fatties coming in at 12mm or 12.5mm. However, the 7mm thin drives are likely to become more and more common as Ultrabooks and other similar devices require thinner drives to maintain their low profile :-)

So, if you own the X220 or another laptop that can only fit 7mm drives your options are primarily: (A) buy a 7mm drive or (B) modify a 9.5mm SSD to be thinner. Here are some resources that may be helpful in that task:

High capacity 7mm 2.5

High capacity 7mm 2.5″ hard driveshttp://forum.notebookreview.com/hardware-components-aftermarket-upgrades/597541-high-capacity-7mm-2-5-hard-drives.htmlI’m looking for a 2.5″ 7mm hard disk. I need something with lots of space (500gb – 1tb+) Only thing I can find is 320GB momentus thin. Any ideas ? I may just get one if it’s high…

 

NOTE: care has been taken to compile this list as accurately as possible, however, it is always recommended that you personally verify specifications and compatibility BEFORE ordering a drive! Better safe than sorry :-)
