Hi mactalkers,

I want to replace the hdd on my 2010, 7.1 13" MBP. I am considering a 1 tb 7200 rpm hdd. what is the latest and greatest brand that I should look into? Seagate, Wd, Hitachi...

Many thanks

Me too. I am having trouble finding one. Lots of places have them listed but nil stock.

OWC are good :)

I don't recommend Seagate... I put a 7200 RPM Segate in my Macbook back in February and its been trouble. Its had huge problems since Mavericks came out :(

I did the OWC data doubler for my MacBook Pro - worked a treat. Has really sped up the machine. Might be a bit pricey to get the 1TB tho...

Get an SSD into that thing if you haven't already.

A SSD makes no sense if you need storage space :P

I just recently got a 320 Gb Hitachi Drive, 320 Gb 7200 rpm, and I would definitely recommend them. Read write speeds are 95-105 Mb/s read/write.
