    Hi Everyone
    I need a reliable internal HDD for for a few months on current MBP while I wait for the MBP refresh. I saw that some HDDs have issues with HDAPM - does it affect all drives.

    With would be more reliable among HITACHI, SEAGATE and WD.

    Really appreciate your help on this.

    No platter based hard drive is more reliable than any other. Buy one with a 5-year warranty.

    I wont claim warranty for this. I just want the most reliable - do all third party platters face HDAPM issues.

    I would get either a Samsung or a western digital. I've heard bad things about seagate.
