I really like the Western Digital Scorpio Black 7200 320GB drives. I install about 6 a month and have never had a problem with them. I have not noticed any difference with battery life.

I use Super Duper to clone the old hard drive: http://shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/Super...


I also use this adapter to do the transfer: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Newer%20T...


iFixit also carries some very nice hard drives and a new one to me the 7200 500GB Seagate: http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts/MacBook-...

Would the WD7500BPVT 750GB work on a MacBook Pro 13 latest gen?


On this other fixit link someone liked my comment. So hopefully someone has tried it.
