2.5" SATA2 Hard Disk Drives

These 2.5” hard drives will typically be used to upgrade laptops and games consoles due to their smaller size. They're compatible with many desktops too, but such systems are best suited to 3.5” drives which usually have a higher rpm and are thus faster. Make sure the height of the drive is the right size for your system.
