I'm buying a harddrive from someone on ebay who seems reputable, since it's hard to find a new harddrive for my GATEWAY MX7527 laptop.

My question is whether or not it is safe to use other "compatible" harddrives or whether I should use strictly the model and part number of the harddrive I have???

Help on this would be greatly appreciated.

More information would be helpful, like the model number of the original drive and the make and model of the drive you are looking at. Using a compatible drive is fine, manufacturer is pretty much uniportant, size and interface however are - so compatible is a question that has to be determined on a drive by drive basis.
