    Going to replace the stock HDD with a WD Black 750GB. New to Mac and need to know what's the best way to test for bad sectors and stuff.

    I would prefer it to be a thorough type of test before I start using it for important data.

    Thanks for any help. :)

    Use Disk Utility and a S.M.A.R.T. status checker.
