Works great in a mid-2009 MacBook Pro, when jumpered for 1.5Gb/s I originally bought a Western Digital WD Scorpio Black 750 GB SATA 3 GB/s 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Internal Bulk/OEM 2.5-Inch Mobile Hard Drive for use in my mid-2009 15-inch MacBook Pro (MacBookPro5,4). It had a major problem which I believe is due to a defect in the design of this version of the MacBook Pro. I replaced the Scorpio with a Seagate Momentus with comparable specs, and it has been working great.The Seagate drives have an important feature which the Western Digital drives do not: a jumper which allows you to limit the speed of the SATA link to 1.5Gb/s. This turned out to be critical for me, since my version of the MacBook Pro apparently has problems with 3Gb/s drives. Lowering the transfer speed to 1.5Gb/s fixes everything. I'm probably reducing the performance of the drive slightly, but that's irrelevant, since the Scorpio at 3Gb/s was unusable to due the SATA link constantly resetting, each time freezing my computer for 30 seconds. 5Proceed With Caution Seagate is one of the best brands out there so I don t need to waste time with that. This hard drive was bought as a replacement for my laptop to increase capacity while maintaining the 7200 rpm speed. Seagate made the transfer fairly easy with their down-loadable clone software Seagate DiskWizard. The clone went surprisingly smooth except for one issue.The Windows Update stopped working on my Vista64 operating system (apparently indexing won t work either). It took some time to find that my old Seagate was not an Advanced Format (ATF) disk and utilized 512 byte sectors. The new ATF Seagate (as is the case for most new drives) utilizes 4096 (4kB) sectors. Microsoft has a hotfix for this problem ( support.microsoft.com/kb/2553708) but I could not make it work.The solution that worked for me, and apparently many others, is to use Intel s Rapid Storage Technology (RST) which you can search for online. Fortunately, someone was kind enough to post in a community forum that it is necessary to use version 9.6 of the RST driber (the minimum required for AFT drives). I found out the hard way that earlier versions will not work. More information can be found if you search for windows support - messages #196988.82 Now everything seems to be working fine. This problem exists for any AFT replacement of an older 512-byte drive and the Seagate drive I installed is working well. Hopefully this will help anyone else with this issue. 5Substitute Upgrade Drives for a DELL Studio 1747 XPS I ended up buying 2 of these Seagate 750GB 7200rpm drives to replace the Western Digital 1TB 5200rpm Secondary Drive I had originally upgraded my Dell Studio 1747 XPS Laptop (Western Digital 1 TB Scorpio Blue SATA 3 Gb/s 5200 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Notebook Hard Drive - WD10TPVT) due to the Later drives 12.5mm thickness, even through the 1tb drive worked flawlessly. So I decided to get the two Seagate 750GB 7200rpm drives (Which installed flawlessy since it was the laptop designed 9.5mm thickness) to compensate for taking out the 1tb drive (I could have gotten the Western Digital 750GB equivilent but the RPM speeds were only 5400rpm to the Seagates 7200rpm). Both drives fit perfectly into the laptop comparments and was recognized instantly by the Laptops BIOS.Other than that all I can say is both drives are working great (Along with it fitting in the laptop compartment great) and are a good way to expand the storage on your laptop (At least until the Hard Drives Manufactures can figure out how to make the 1tb and above hard drives that will have the 9.5mm thickness to fit in all Window based Laptops).I would recommend these hard drives for all Laptop upgrade needs who wish to increase thier storage with virtually no Headaches.Computer Specs:Dell Studio 1747 XPS (June 2010 Model)Windows 7 Ultimate SP1(64 Bit)Intel I7 Core 1.6ghz processor8GB DDR3 10666mhz Ram1gb NVidia 880 Video Card750gb (Previously a 120gb)\750gb (Previously a 1tb, removed due to drive thickness issues) Sata Hard DrivesBD-ROM/DVD-CD Burner1920 X 1080 17inch Screen1GB Broadcom Intergrated NICIntel WiFi Wireless CardCreative Sound Blaster CardASUS VH242H 23.6-Inch 1080p Widescreen LCD Monitor (External) 5working perfect in my Mac Book Pro 13" early 2011 I change my MacBook Pro HDD of 300gb with this HDD with 750 GB.First I mount this new 750GB HDD in an external enclosure (Vantec NexStar TX 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure) and I installed Mountain Lion. Then I installed all the applications, third I copied documents from the old HDD.the last operation was to install the new HDD inside my MBP. watch youtube for instructions.I preferred to install Mountain Lion from the scratch instead of making a copy/image of my old HDD because installing Mountain Lion is so simple, just wait the completion of the process.I installed OSX with a USB pen drive where I mounted a bootable copy of Mountain Lion.(instructions in Apple.com)I do not know if my MBP is faster with this new HDD with 7200 RPM vs the original with 5400 RPM. Speed of loading applications and documents seems to me comparable. Of course I gain Gb of space.So far is working in a perfect way.No specific incremental heat. 5From Failing to Failed in 12 months I realize many hard drives fail and even though most reviewers here haven't had any problems with this particular model, I've just gone through 12 months of hell with it. I purchased this drive to replace the default 5400-rpm one installed in my 2012 Macbook Pro (non-retina). Having never used the factory-installed drive, I immediately attributed all the latency, 15-minute boot times (not exaggerating), random hang ups and excessively long app launches to everything but the hard drive.Fast forward 12 months and the usual login screen delay I had been experiencing all year long all of the sudden lasted 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, after which I turned the computer off cold and restarted. Only, I was then greeted with a flashing graphic of a folder with a question-mark inside it. At that point, it was apparent it was the HDD that had failed.Had I known and/or focused my suspicion on the drive immediately, I could have saved myself a lot of gray hair and could have avoided repeated raised blood pressure. My unit of this faulty piece of garbage Seagate calls a hard drive crippled my top-of-the-line laptop for an entire year. Only now that I replaced it with HGST Travelstar 2.5-Inch 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6GB/s 32MB Cache Internal Hard Drive do I finally realize its full potential.Again, I don't deny there are working units of this HDD out there but this is my second Seagate and 2/2 failures. Since I haven't had one good day with this HDD, I award it, quite generously, 1 star. But really, I'd rather give it negative ten. 1Used as replacement drive for HP DV6000 Notebook Obtained this to replace a 120GB 5400RPM hard drive in a notebook which was causing the notebook (HP Pavilion DV6000 Series Notebook) to freeze when moved... Kinda freaky.In any case, I got the drive along with a Vantec NexStar TX 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure enclosure.Both arrived the next day. Took the new drive and installed it into the enclosure and then used the Acronis backup software's Media CD to use the clone option to move the data from the old drive in the notebook to the new one. Took about 30 mins. Notebook has Win7 Pro on it.Then removed both drives and swapped them. Note that the HP Notebook uses a special carrier for the drive, but had no problem carefully removing the old drive and inserting the new drive. Fit without any issues.Restarted the notebook which booted without any issues (faster), loaded the SATA drivers for the disk and then rebooted to finish the update.Notebook has not froze once since the move so that is a good indication that the hard drive was the problem I was having as it was easy to duplicate before.Drive is basically silent, no real noticible vibration. Runs a bit hotter than before but the location of the drive is open enough to cool it. Much faster than the previous which was only a 5400RPM drive.Will update as time goes by. But for now an inexpensive fix for a real problem and now have more space to boot. 5It Sped up My MacBook Pro! Update 2013.04.06: The drive's operation so far has been great and DrivePulse the background drive diagnostics hasn't registered any warnings. I've gotten a lot of use out of it almost everyday, I've run a couple of intense integrity tests and bad sector W/R scans on it as well with no errors. I use Disk Genius 3 which has DrivePulse which monitors drive health and operation continuously. It used to issue some drive error warning with the old Hitachi drive but nothing with this one so far.Review: I have read some reviews of people who had bad luck with this 750GB drive. I don't know the circumstances involved or if the drive was defective out of the box, but so far this drive has been perfect. I guess my reason for flying in the face of reviews of failures is that Seagate is one drive make that has been stellar to me over many years. Brands I've had consistently bad luck with and steer clear of like the plague because of multiple drive failures for me as well as friends and at work are IBM now Hitachi and Western Digital. Before I installed it in my MacBook Pro to replace the terribly slow and quirky original Hitachi Travelstar. I ran the integrity test on it with Disk Genius 3 which gives the drive a rigorous workout for an hour and gets the temperature rather warm too. The drive tested perfect. I have very good drive monitoring and repair software so I'll know if there's something wrong with it (I've done data/drive recovery for a few people). I would recommend this drive if you have a fast laptop that feels not so much having pauses or you use it for A/V production. I upgraded my 2008 MacBook Pro and I have it doing all kinds of things without those long pauses or pinwheels and freezing video that I was plagued by earlier. I had it jacked into my A/V system watching a movie on Netflix with Silverlight which is a real POS pig, interwebz surfing with about 10 tabs, recording an LP, running Torrent, and running a constant 1 hour hard drive integrity test on another external drive. The drive benchmarked way higher than the original and scored write speeds as high as 102 GB/s vs the about 40 GB/s that the old drive scored. There is no notable increase in drive noise and an only just notable increase in temperature on the MacBook's aluminum case where the drive is. The increase in power consumption looks negligible and I don't think you'd notice any difference in battery life.The new hard drive made it all smooth. Before the drive upgrade with little computer activity VinylStudio would frequently stop recording and complain that the drive is too busy to write to. The old drive was a 250 GB 5400 RPM Travelstar and it really slowed the Mac down.As usual I'll update my review if anything bad happens or otherwise noteworthy occurs... 5Seagate Momentus 7200 750 GB / 2.5 inch hard drive This hard drive runs like a stripped-ass-ape. I love this HD.First: I am not a gamer so those game player issues do not apply to me. Find a gamer review. And do not drop your computer... I want speed, size, and simplicity. I wanted to install my own, first hard drive failure I have gone through.I think I paid $70.00 for this, Amazon.com , and the trick was this: went into my Boot Manager ( F12 if my memory serves me ) and then 'advanced ' , to hard drive and I had two choices. So I picked " the other one" . Turns out it was that easy and I had nothing to lose by that time. Check you computer guides and look to their user forums. A real gold mine of info. Open the boot manager , look around, do nothing. Go out. Go in.First do no harm. It is a learning experience, it will take a little time, and you can save some real money.You can install your own. Mine has two screws. i took out the old one. Put it back in so as to feel for the ' click' of it. Then put in the new. I did keep the old one, even though I do not have 7 million bucks in bitcoin on it.This took some amount of research and blind stumbling in my run-up to the success, but I figure I can pay myself a couple hundred bucks by doing it myself. If I can do this you likely can too. You will fel so good when it works.

These have got to be the most pathetic pieces of unreliable garbage that Seagatehas ever manufactured. You Won't Sell Me Another One Of These Drives - - - - - - I will guarantee you that.This model is on my S**T List.Bye, Bye Seagate, Nice knowing ya. 1I will update my review if the drive ever fails. I decided to buy this product even though there are a few scary reviews on here for two reasons:1. Seagate has NEVER failed me, and I've owned a few of their drives, both external and internal.2. I have TimeMachine, so even if the drive crapped out, there is little risk b/c my info is automatically backed up.With that being said, the disk performed well during installation of hardware and restoration of my data. It is a little louder than my previous (5400 RPM) drive, and the computer gets a little warmer. But these issues are SO SLIGHT that I wonder if I would have even noticed them if I weren't looking for them. I was only looking for those traits b/c other reviews mentioned them.Again, Seagate has never failed me, and has never failed my roomie since 2003, (back when data storage was going for $3/gig!!!If this drive ever fails as people claim, I will update this review, so as long as you don't see that update, you will know that it is performing satisfactorily. And I suspect that it will. The drive isn't questionable to me as much as the reviewers are . . .UPDATE ON 6/22/12 - THE DRIVE IS RUNNING AS QUICKLY AND QUIETLY AS EVER. Glad I made the purchase! 5
