Perfect in my MacBook Pro,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace the 250GB 5400RPM disk in my MacBook Pro 17" 2.5 GHz (Penryn model from 2008).
I toyed with getting the 7200RPM model, but I had concerns about heat and noise so in the end I decided on this 5400 RPM model.
Installation was fairly straight forward (as much as it can be in a Mac), once you get to the drive- it's a straight swap, there are no jumpers to set on the new drive.
I was hoping for more capacity and similar speed to the drive I was replacing. What I got was even better:
The drive is silent to my ears with no noticeable heat. But the mac is noticeably faster - this may just be a result of the fresh install rather than the drive, but either way I am very happy.
