Yeah, I've done the same on Toshiba Canvio portable externals up to 1 TB, but I'm not sure about the 1.5 TB/2.0 TB portable HDs because sometimes those are double platters and 12.5 to 14 mm thick.
This drive is definitely 5400 RPM (as expected) but the height in the enclosure is 0.65 inches = 16.51 mm.
I don't know how thick the enclosure is, but my guess would probably be only a couple of mm because the drives are pretty tight in there. I was debating getting it at Staples with a PM + $25 off coupon... but I don't know if I want to risk it not fitting in my laptop.
as far as I know, all the toshibs canvio portables are in the same cases. The cases are actually a little bit roomy for the 1tb drives, they have to allow some airflow and that is accomplished by the rubber spacers/feet at each corner of the inside drive.
You can get further with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind word.
have: at least 6 inserts every week, willing to trade away any & all pet food Q's. If you've got something I need/want, ask and I may have something you need.
Like two others mentioned and I checked it myself, Staples doesn't carry 1.5 TB, no need to do any price match.
Would've been all over this @ $60
