My Problem

upgrading from original 500 GB hard drive to 1 TB on my five year old 2010 MacBook Pro

My Fix

It was a piece of cake. I followed the ifixit guide, though I skipped the part about removing the battery first because it wasn't in the way. I'm guessing that was just a safety precaution anyway. All went smoothly.

My Advice

Before the repair, I placed the new hard drive into the USB enclosure that came with the kit and used Disk Utility to restore the contents of the old disk (the one at that point still in the MacBook Pro) onto the new one from the backup I had created on an external drive using Silverkeeper. Then I carried out the replacement but discovered when it would not start up from the new internal hard drive that I had neglected to reformat the new drive as a Mac drive (Mac OS extended journaled with Partition Map Scheme: GUID Partition Table) beforehand. So be sure to first reformat the disk before using Disk Utility to carry out the restore procedure copying over your data from the old disk to the new one.

My Problem

I had a failure warning for my HDD on my MacPro indicating that it was failing. I thought I might have to get a new NB but tried this instead. I only had 4GB of memory so since I was going to open it up I figured I'd upgrade that as well.

My Fix

No problems at all. The tools provided worked great and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Result.. a near new 4 year old MacPro.

My Advice

None.

My Problem

THE DRIVE STARTED TO HAVE ISSUES BOOTING UP THE MACHINE. UPON EXTENSIVE DIAGNOSIS, DETERMINED THAT IT NEEDED TO BE REPLACED.

My Fix

THE REPAIR WENT WELL. FOLLOWED THE STEPS IN THE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO AND "WHAT DO YOU KNOW" IT WORKED JUST LIKE IFIXIT SAID! THANKS TO THE IFIXIT TEAM!!!!

My Advice

WATCH AND FOLLOW THE VIDEO AND YOU'LL BE FINE!

My Problem

The drive was showing signs of trouble. Slow, errors etc...

My Fix

The repair was extremely easy the only thing was the drive was ever so slightly smaller than the one I removed. So to keep it from moving around I put a few pieces of blue tack on the sides to hold it in place.

My Advice

If you own this Macbook Pro model early 2011 and your drive is giving you problems go for a new drive. It really is a doodle to fit and a lot cheaper than sending it away. Don't be afraid of trying it yourself. I also installed 16gb of ram in this machine which was also extremely easy.

My Problem

I ran out of storage on my stock late 2008 early 2009 MacBook HD. I ordered a WD HD from another site and my computer hated it. It would crash randomly and took around 5 power on/off attempts to get it started every time. I returned the WD and bought a seagate from this site for almost half the price. With the extra money I also bought more RAM.

My Fix

The upgrade was insanely easy. You just pop some covers off, unscrew a few things and replace.

My Advice

I would suggest upgrading to 8gb of RAM if you're running 4gb. I didn't think the difference would be this noticeable. This site is pretty legit. I would also suggest ordering from them again. A side note, I had trouble with backing up between different operating systems and had to install Yosemite from mountain lion in order to transfer my backup.

My Problem

My wife's '09 MacBook Pro (2.53GHz) was beyond slow and was irritating her beyond belief. I ended up bumping the RAM to see if that helped, but not a whole lot. Her issue was the stock 250GB HDD, which was slow as dirt. She had about 75% of it taken up, but it just lagged in retrieval speed. Time to move from HDD to Hybrid......SSD was a bit much in price for her overall amount of storage. Maybe next time :p

My Fix

Installing the new 1TB Hybrid drive and new RAM (doubled and maxed her MB to 8GB) was very easy (just make sure you match the BUS speed.....I got 2x 4GB PC3-12800 for a little less $$$ than the recommended PC3-8500, but found out the BUS maxes as 8500). The instructions on this site were easy to follow and clear.

My Advice

I had to download a cloning software (i.e. SuperDuper), so other than that it went smoothly. Cloning was super easy and straight forward.

My Problem

I had to replace my MacBook Pro (Early 2011 Model)'s HDD after a total failure. I chose to replace it with a 1TB Hybrid SSD.

My Fix

It was the first time I had ever taken my MacBook Pro apart. The toolkit that came with my HDD was very useful and had everything I needed and more to do the job! It was a simple process, however the HDD I received wasn't ready to use. It needed to be formatted to begin with (which I didn't know... and I wondered why the MacBook wasn't recognising the disk. After figuring that out, the replacement wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and now it is working faster than ever before!

My Advice

As I didn't have any other computer available to me, I had to access the HDD through disk utility in Internet Recovery mode. I then restarted the MacBook and installed from the disk that originally came with my MacBook Pro. From there I updated it straight to Yosemite. The whole process took 5 or so hours due to the confusion with setting up the HDD. Maybe include this in the guide? I have never done a repair before so wasn't clued up on the ins and outs of the process.

My Problem

Suspected HDD failure

My Fix

Easy

My Advice

Enjoyed the experience immensely.

My Problem

I was unable to upgrade to OS Yosemite because of a S.M.A.R.T. error in the old hard disk.

My Fix

The replacement was very easy and quick. I used the opportunity for a RAM upgrade as well. Installation of both the HD and the RAM went pretty smoothly.

My Advice

I did not have to remove the battery as the guide suggested. Also, I purchased the repair kit, thinking I would need the different screw driver tips. I only needed the 00 philips, so buying the whole set was unnecessary. It would be good to mention to folks that if you never opened your laptop before there will be dirt in there that you should consider cleaning, and perhaps explain in your guide safe ways to do that. Also, was not expecting the external case for the old drive to be rubber, so had to think for a sec how to jam the old drive into it. It worked fine in the end. Did not see if you have guides for transferring data to the new drive - I had to plug my old drive via usb and start the machine with it to use it to install the new OS into the new drive, and then migrate all my old info into the new drive. Worked well in the end.

My Problem

The computer was simply getting too slow; I run Yosemite 10.10.3 and did lots of video editing protects running Final Cut Pro X 10.4 and it was putting a toll on my computer. Somehow some applications kept crashing and the videos would take a while to edit. Also I was told by the Apple tech that my hard drive was about to fail.

My Fix

I replaced the RAM memory to 8G; flawless. The SSD installation was a bit complicated since I used the dual drive and took the CD/DVD writer out and replaced it with the Kit. It was not too complicated if you have the patience and you like to do this kinda stuff. It took me about 2 hours to complete the process. I watched the tutorials a couple times before opening up my MacBook Pro. And it was easy enough.

My Advice

My advice is, MAKE SURE YOU format the new hard drive and use Time Machine back up BEFORE you open the computer and start replacing ANY PARTS. Somehow (this is the second time that happens to me unfortunately) when handling the hard drives; the old ones tend to corrupt and won't boot afterwards. Buy the SSD with the kit if you don't have one, plug it; format it to Mac OS Journaled and back up all you data. Save yourself a trip to the Apple Store.
