The T6 Torx screws from each side of the hard drive do not fit exactly in The Crucial M500 240GB I used as a replacement; they are a tiny bit too long. As a result, the SSD is harder to fit in the available space. Amazing performance though, well worth this little intervention.

I have to update my iMac 24" next.

I'd suggest using the free software "Super Duper" to clone the hard drive. It worked wonders for me and after the 2 hour clone, I was up and running in 5 minutes!

I wholeheartedly agree. Super Duper! made the task effortless.

The T6 torx screws on the side of the existing Hitachi drive fit my Crucial M500 240GB replacement perfectly. Be aware that they were originally installed into the HDD with blue Loctite, so it takes a bit of effort to break them loose.

Thanks ifixit for excellent guidance!

Huge thank you for this guide! The HD on my mid-2009 MacBook Pro died yesterday (it was the original 160GB HD from 2009, so I can't complain, I guess) and instead of shedding a few hundred euros to the Apple geniuses, I saw this tutorial and thought I could give it a try. I bought a new HD (this time 500GB), replaced the fried one, reformatted the new one and now I'm doing a fresh install of OS X. Total cost: 41euros and some careful screwdriving here and there. Et voila!

Thank you, thank you, tank you!
