    Just wondering what a good 7200RPM HDD would be for a 2010 MBP 13", hoping for something around 500GB and easy install (Drop in) would be nice Thanks

    P.S. something from OWC would be nice.

    There is no platter-based hard drive that is better than any other. Buy the one with the best warranty.

    I'm thinking about maybe going with one of these:

    HITACHI Travelstar 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" $64.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145370

    Not sure on Segate anymore since I've had the majority(7 of 10) of their desktop drives I bought in the past 3 years for multiple systems die on me. I usually use WD now but there seems to be a compatibility issue with them in these new macbook pros.

    I have had several Hitachi Travelstar 7200 RPM drives over the last couple of years and I think they're great (quiet, no noticible vibration, not hotter than stock 5400PRM).

    I was a little nervous to buy a Samsung 640GB HDD but Hitachi hadn't come out with anything bigger than 500GB yet and, so far, I love it.
