    I just ordered the Toshiba MK1059GSM 2.5 12.5mm but the saw That WD do a 9.mm 1TB drive would it be better change and get the WD? i read that it was slightly quieter. I have had reliability problems with WD drives in the past.

    Being slightly thinner aint gonna make it better in a notebook, and being 3DBa quiter wont make much difference at all. Toshiba is much more reliable than WD. I advise for the toshiba
