Without any warning signs the hard drive on my Macbook Pro Early 2013 died a death, just loud clicking sounds and it failed to boot.
I had a few moments of palpitations, panic, fearing the worst.
Luckily my Macbook was the last of the Unibody designs so it was a simple job to undo ten screws and take the base of the laptop off, remove the hard drive and replace it with this Seagate Drive. The old drive, a Hitachi lasted just over 2 years of extreme use.
Having learned from previous experience I had already been fastidious in backing up everything with the Time Machine. I was up and running within three hours including installing the back up.
This drive appears to be a little faster in booting up and accessing files and so far there have been no hitches. It is also very quiet. I had intended to replace it with a 1TB SSD but baulked at the cost. Maybe next year, perhaps!
All in all I am extremely satisfied with this new drive. If at some stage it gives me any grief I will up date my review. So far I am very pleased and if I had known how easy it was to replace the drive I'd have done it before now.
