Help -- Need to replace failed HDD in a Asus ROG G751JT


Nov 14, 2017
Greetings Everyone!
I am new to the forums and would greatly appreciate an experienced voice to help me out with this issue. I own a Asus ROG G751JT which includes a 1TB HDD. The HDD died and needs to be replaced. My question is: What HDD dimensions will fit inside the laptop?

For example: Will a WD 1TB Mobile Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 2.5 Inch (WD10JPLX) physically fit?

Form Factor 2.5"
Height (maximum) 9.5mm
Width (maximum) 69.85mm
Length (maximum) 100.20mm

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!


If you have access to the laptop's internals(which you're going to do anyways since you will need to remove the failed HDD) you can measure the height of the drive. It should be less than 12mm but a little over 9mm.

If anything the drive you're looking at is the standard form factor for any laptop that accepts a 2.5" drive. You should be fine!

Here's the manual to help you disassemble your unit.
