    Hi guys,

    I want to upgrade one of the two 500GB HDD I currently have in my MBP 5,3 with a 1TB one. Given that I had good experience with WD, I am looking at their offerings.

    While their standard WD10TEVT is hardly available around here and if it's much more expensive (for what ever reason), I am interested in the WD10TPVT.

    Now that HDD has the new Advanced Formatting with 4k sectors which seems to be only a problem for WinXP.
    But could any Mac user share its experience with that HDD?
    Is it gonna work the same with Time Machine, backups, file transfer between disks or can issues occur when files are exchanged/transferred between disks with different sector sizes?

    Only want to upgrade one of my HDDs for now, so is there any preferable setup (in terms of which HDD to have the OS and which the files)?

    Thank you for sharing your experience with me.

    Best regards,
