I ordered two of these drives. One was installed in a Dell Latitude D820 and the other in a Latitude 2100 (Netbook). Because the Hitachi drive was narrower than the stock disk in the D820 extra care was required to line up the contacts, but other than that installation was a snap. BIOS recognized the full capacity without intervention, and I restored disk images from backup across our LAN with ease.
