Price is good, and I NEED the space. Anyone with experience?
Yes. It works. Just like any hard drive thats the right size. What is it your hesitant about?
I have it in the OptiBay as companion for the Vertex 3 SSD... Works perfectly... (except a click sound once in a while which I haven't figure out where it comes from... )
Well its listed as 5200 rpm, vs 5400 rpm on the stocker. I thought that was strange. I have read about the shock sensor issues but they died down so I wondered if that issue had been fixed...
Also wondering about lesser speed due to the slower rotational speed and and added heat or diminished battery
Its a newer two platter design so it can have a slower rotational speed while still maintaining a high throughput. If you look up speedtest/benchmark comparisons on the drive it was one of the fastest 1TB 2.5in hard drives.
i got the samsung spinpoint... its wonderful!!!!!!! and its 9.5mm
glad you approve... i still need to learn more about RPMs... but its my first macbook pro. so i didn't have much to compare it to besides a core 2 duo macbook.... so 5400 rpm is enough for me....im thinking about adding a sad and taking out the optimal drive because i don't use it... lOL
Ok, sold on the spin point. I should use CCC to clone entire drive? Then put on USB external.....then what?
I am on Lion...
hope you didnt buy it yet... here is a link to get it for the cheapest.
here is how to transfer data on to the new hard drive
hope this helps!
It helps, err, well I have an external but in order to back up to it either with TM or CCC I need to wipe it?
What if I buy an enclosure for the one I'm replacing and then boot from that via migration assistant and restore?
I'm an idiot about stuff like this
Does 12.5mm fits inside the MacBook Pro? Thanks
Personally, I'd prefer WD hard drive.
