    Well the HD on my 2007 13" Macbook is dead again after Apple replaced it last year on the extension program they had for bad one's. I took it out and it is a Hitachi 160G 5400RPM.
    I can't believe the one they said was defective lasted 3 yrs and this one only lasted 1 yr.

    Can someone suggest a good hard drive (one that might last more than a year) to replace it with. I don't really need anything larger than 160 or 250G.

    I will have to try to install the OS from an external DVD drive since the optical drive took a dump last year.

    That's not DOA. DOA means "Dead On Arrival." It may be dead, but if you've had it a year, it's not DOA.

    Anyway, Western Digital is currently a good brand.
