1. Yes, I replaced it with 6230 and got bluetooth. The guides are posted in the previous post.
2. A 9.5 mm one yes most likely.
If the 5 screws are what I think they are, they should go in the holes where there is a marking next to them ("F4" or something).
I like the r835. It's super light and fast. It's also easily customizable with hdd caddy and upgrading the wifi to get bluetooth. As for...
Both are SATA II even though the Portege is capable of SATA III, Toshiba disabled it.
Other thing is to make sure ECO mode is not ON when doing 720/1080P content. When Eco mode is ON, I feel the laptop operates very sluggishly with...
Nice, good luck with the install.

So it's been confirmed that the R835 has SATA III disabled by BIOS.
What's the possibility of them releasing a patch / fix or are SATA III...
I did not experience any significant battery life loss or heat but the laptop does get warm when running games.
I used one from a glasses repair kit. But any tiny screw driver should work. Just be very careful not to strip/damage the screws.
Nevermind, 250/200 read/write is not SATA III speeds. R835-P56X does not support SATA III.
