Does anyone know which 750GB comes stock in the 2.2?
The 750 GB drive I received (a 2.3 i7, but should be the same as the 2.0 or 2.2) was a Toshiba.
Specifically a Toshiba MK7559GSXF, if the model number is helpful.
I got Toshiba MK7559GSXF 750GB 5400rpm. It performs well for such kind of HDD. Most time, only 7200 rpm reach 100 MB/s.
Do you folks find that stock Toshiba to be a pretty quiet drive?
I haven't been able to find that specific model, I'm betting that's the Apple branded version of...
Would you guys agree?
The only time i can hear it is when i'm writing large amounts of data to it. Its very quiet.
I don't agree. I have a TOSHIBA MK7559GSXF in my 2.2. It's pretty darn loud.
I had my late 2011 MBP replaced with another because of a faulty keyboard backlight, and the difference in hard drive noise was quite substantial. The old one shipped with a Toshiba, and the new one with a Hitachi (HTS547575A9E384). Especially when compared to the Toshiba, the Hitachi is whisper quiet.. So yes, the Toshiba is really quite loud.
