Great HDD for my Macbook

Robert V., Newegg
11 September 2012
  • Summary: I'd buy another Hitachi HDD after owning this one.
  • Pros: Has been flawlessly reliable since I installed it on my mid-2009 Macbook over a year ago. Looks like it's no longer available on Newegg though... Still, my experience with this would get me to pick up another Hitachi HDD if I needed one.
  • Cons: I mean... I don't know how fast hard drives are supposed to perform these days. Haven't been up on my "hard drive" knowledge much aside from SSDs. This drive has been pretty fast, seems to do the trick. I wouldn't say it's amazing. Boot up on my Macbook still takes longer than I'd like (recently ...

Not an easy install for MacBook Pro

DiamondSuave "diamondsuave", Amazon
15 February 2012
  • Summary: This is a good drive, BUT... OS Lion does not recognize this drive. I had to go to the Apple genius bar for them to correctly format it. It only took them like five minutes, but still a hassle. It does make a louder sound when operating but isn't too distracting unless you are watching a movie.

It was great...sort of

Scott P., Newegg
17 September 2011
  • Pros: Great price for the amount of memory in a small space. It was of good quality while it lasted. About a year after I bought the drive it died without any warning. Hitachi's customer service was great. They worked with me, helped me, and replaced my dead drive without hassle. Besides the inevitabil...
  • Cons: I had the drive in my MacBook. Understandably it ran hotter and consumed more power than the OEM drive because it spins faster. It was a con, but well worth the extra space.

Kuk, Amazon

MacBook Pro upgrade drive

Nick Jacob, Amazon
24 October 2010
  • Summary: I used this drive to replace the 5400rpm, 120gb drive that came in my 2008 macbook pro (3,1)--not the unibody. I read a lot of reviews--I was originally considering getting a WD drive or a seagate (a similar, 7200rpm 500 gb model) but I read a lot of reviews that suggested that those drives were...
