4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Used to replace the stock 80GB drive in my Late 2007 Macbook. Installation was easy (Apple doesn't tell you that you need a #8 Torx screwdriver), I formated the drive, installed Leopard, and restored my backup from Time Machine easily. Drive registers around 230GB. Finally enough space for a bootcamp partition.

Cons: Lounder and hotter then the old drive. I can actually feel the thing spinning when its on my lap or on my desk. Nothing severe enough that I wouldn't recommend the purchase to others.

Other Thoughts: I have never had a hard drive crash on me. I have a unbased distrust for this drive, but thats why I got a external enclosure for the old drive so I can make many Time Machine backups.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for 1st Gen MacbookPro

Pros: Fantastic amount of storage for the price. The performance is good and the price was just right. Drive is very quiet, the white noise from my speakers seems louder.

Cons: Nothing legitimate.

Other Thoughts: Used the guide from ifixit to replace the drive in my 1st Gen Macbook Pro. Went from 100 GB to 250 GB and it's great. The drive doesn't generate much heat while gaming in XP nor movie editing in OSX. Overall the drive is quiet and fast. One note is to make sure you have an external firewire drive for your mac if you're upgrading. Booting off it could mean a world of convenience when transferring data from old to new drives.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat replacement

Pros: Its fast, its big (for a laptop disk) and its quiet. It does what it should and nothing it shouldn't do. Everything is way faster than it was on the older Hitachi disk, and I've got more free space than I know what to do with on my R60 now.

Cons: It doesn't make breakfast. I mean really now.

Other Thoughts: Good price for a good drive. I would definitely purchase this drive again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Drive Works well, i dont hear anything on my MacBook (2.16GHz, 2gb RAM. Mid 07 model), drive average transfer for me is 48.4MB/s write and 54.5MB/s Read according to the program i used.

Cons: none really, wish it was bigger.

Other Thoughts: i love it, got it as a gift. Drive works silent and fast, there is no clicking noise. drive sold on newegg at a lower price than any other place i could find it. for Mac Computers dont fall into the trap, hard drives from apple just have their sticker, they are not better, same with memory.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: very quiet, as quick as the OEM drive.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: With all the extra room on this drive now I will not have to carry around several USB drives for data storage.

5 out of 5 eggsMacBook Pro Replacement HD

Pros: I got mine really cheap. Easy setup and OS installation. Runs very quiet.

Cons: As with most laptop hard drives this one is no exception to the "click" sound that occurs every 10-20 seconds. This is because of setting that the drive is required to execute.

Other Thoughts: Because of the price I got this drive for I really don't care that much about the "click" sound that happens. I traded from the included Fujitsu 160 GB hard drive that came with my MBP to the Western Digital Scorpio 250 GB Serial ATA drive but found the mechanical "click" to be way too loud for a product that is advertised as having a "whisper drive". I promptly returned the Western Digital and picked up this drive in its place. I'm still looking for a quieter drive but I think I'll most likely stay with this one since it runs quieter that the Western Digital and the cost was a lot lower (for me anyway.)
