    Hiya guys, right I have a MBP 15" i5, it's got a 320GB HDD but it's filling up fast! Too fast!
    I tend to have alot of media especially large HD films shows etc so I was thinking of upgrading too a 1tb HDD.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a replacement drive?
    Any real difference in the write speeds?
    Also is it easy to fit myself?
    Cheaper price is better but I'd rather pay a little more if I meant I was getting a much higher quality product!

    Many thanks in advance!

    Sorry just realised I put MBA in the title! Mistake it's a MBP!

    Western Digital is the most widely available 1TB 2.5" HD. It is good but Samsung and Toshiba makes them too and they are cheaper. All should work fine

    This. And you can find the install instructions in the manual that came with your macbook pro.

    Western digital 1tb for £114.99 which is around $180.
    Sound like a good deal do you reckon?
