    Hi All,

    I have just got a new 17" i7 2.66 UMBP. It comes with a 500GB Hard Drive but I would like to upgrade it to one of the newer 1TB ones.

    My reasoning is to have not only more space but create a partition so I can run both OSX & Windows.

    I am not sure which brands are more reliable than others & who offers the best warranty or back up service. I would want the fastest & quietest one available as long as it will definitely fit inside the notebook. Reliability & good customer service from the brand is also important as I gather my Applecare will only cover factory installed parts?

    Which brand & models should I be looking at and which do you all recommend? I am not sure but I think I need to ensure that any replacement drive does not conflict with the notebooks built in sudden motion sensor?

    Many Thanks,

    Bazzy!

    AFAIK, only Western Digital makes 1TB 2.5" drives that fit into MBP, at least they are what people use in here. WD is good brand, take a look at this
