    Does anyone have any experience with a WD5000BPVT Western Digital 500 GB Scorpio Blue in a 2010 MacBook Pro (15 inch)? Just wondering if this drive is decent and will work well for my upgrade.

    Cheers

    All platter based hard drives are essentially the same. Aside from budget and capacity, the only other important factor is the warranty. Brand does not matter.
