sony PCG-K25 and Hitachi 7K60 HD

    I put one of these 7200 RPM Hitachi disks in my K25 and it's a little faster
    than the 4200 RPM Hitachi 60Gig that was already in, but it vibrates way too
    much, so that when the machine is running I can feel the vibration on the
    palmrest, either side, like a slight buzzy feel.

    I assume this is because it's 7200 RPM, so am getting ready to put the
    4200RPM drive back in. THe difference in speed is not huge in any case.

    Opinions?

    Bad drive or the drive is not installed correctly in the drive caddy.
    The HK60 is reported by users (me, also) to be extremely silent and
    vibration-free.
