5 out of 5 eggs Momentus XT in my MackBook Pro (MBP) is a Life-Saver! 10/13/2012

This review is from: Seagate Momentus XT ST500LX003 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Incredibly fast compared to the stock Apple hard-drive that came in my 2007 MacBook Pro. My original HD was growing slower and slower -- boot times at over a minute, possibly even two -- and it eventually died. Installed the new HD, restored my MBP from a Timeline backup, and restarted. Everything is flawless and absolutely flying. My boot time is a matter of seconds now, apps load faster, and every program just runs better. It's incredible how this new HD has breathed new life into my aging machine. Additionally, the added storage space is wonderful and allows me to keep all my music on the internal drive instead having to lug around an external if I want access to my library.

Cons: None so far. I haven't even noticed the extra noise that upgrading to a 7200rpm drive supposedly imparted.
