Compatible hard disk drives for my MBP
My HDD is having SMART issues so I have to replace it.
I am wondering what HDD are compatible with my MBP.
Any 2.5" SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) drive will work in your system. Your choices are a standard HDD, a hybrid HD (SSHD) or a SSD. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.
I would recommend going with a SSHD as it does offer a faster boot up. SSD's are quite expensive when going with the bigger sizes. Here's the Seagate drives that will work in your system: Seagate 2.5" FireCuda SSHD and here is the Western Digital product: WD Blue 2.5" SSHD note the WD only offers a 1 TB 2.5" drive
