    Pretty self explanatory!

    I popped the stock 750GB 7200rpm drive from my MBP and installed it in place of the 500GB 5400rpm that comes with the MiniStation stock.

    Good post. Curious to see your benchmark for it, and how much improvement it would be over the 5400rpm. Even more curious what a SSD in there would be.

    Thanks for the video walkthrough! I have been wondering if I could replace the HD, as many reviewers stated it broke down on them in a few months.

    I do have an older Kingston 96GB SSD I could benchmark in there. I'm working on the benchmark data now for the 7200 rpm drive.
