I would always go for new with something like this, plus you would have to ask yourself how come a used one was being sold?

Received an exact replacement for my laptop model , well what I thought was an exact replacement but it doesn't seem to fit although it shows it is the correct replacement .

Baffled over it

I decided to take off a side section and replace it with the section that came with my original drive and now it fits .

The laptop recognizes it and it's working great but surprised there are some differences between the original and replacement.

In the pic in post #4 the new one is the bottom one and it had that metal side piece which my original didn't , I took it off and added the bracket from the top one to the bottom one and that worked.

Don't know if that's common or not

From your posts I understand that you've replaced a TS-U633A with a TS-U633. The A probably indicates the different fitting which locks the drive into the computer chassis.

Yes that is common. Most laptops use identical drives, but have caddies, or extra attachments to 'customise' them.
