Rating: 5/5 excellent drive for studio recording June 9, 2017 This is the 3rd drive I have purchased and installed on my Macbook pro15 (2011). This my first 7200 and works great and improves the loading speed of the audio tracks. The other two 5400 drives worked great also, and still do. I use those as pack up drives with the old OS on when I update to the newer ones. In case new OS does not work with Studio One 3 software properly. I would purchase again.
