Excerpt: I have an old MacBook 2010 that I had alternatively Linux and MacOS running on. I bought it used, and quite for years its internal 500GB hard drive has been gaining bad sectors. Under Linux it wasn't a big deal to re-run an fsck, but MacOs wasn't that easily serviceable.

Summary: I am very happy with this Laptop Hard-drive. I have installed it into a Mid-2010 17" MacBook Pro; installation is fairly easy & took only 30 minutes. While I have not noticed any increased speed / performance with this hard-drive, I chose this for increased space [ 1TB ].
