640GB SATA Hard Disk Drive Kit for Mac Pro
A 640GB Serial ATA 3Gb-per-second Apple Hard Drive operating at 7,200 revolutions per minute. Works with Mac Pro.
Mac Pro supports up to four 3Gb/s Serial ATA hard drives for up to 8TB of storage. The cable-free, direct-attach drive solution lets you install and remove drives in a snap. To install a drive, you connect a simple drive carrier to the hard drive, then just slide it into place -- no cables or connectors to hassle with. Removing the drive is just as easy. Every Mac Pro ships with four hard drive carriers. This solution is perfect if you ever share drives among different workstations at home or the studio.
Requires Mac Pro (early 2009) and Mac OS X v10.5.6 or later.

They went into a raid device, along as with some brand new Western Digital drives long story short the WD drives were replaced 3 times due to failures but these drives are still going.
No issues at all so far, no noise issues or anything like that. …

Yes. There are many replacements for your MacBook Pro to choose from. Some known good manufactures a Yes. There are many replacements for your MacBook Pro to choose from. Some known good manufactures are Hitachi, Seagate, Western Digital and Samsung. To find out which device you have, click on the apple in the upper left hand corner of your screen and scroll down to 'About This Mac'. Open it. You will see a list of devices on your machine. Click on the SATA hard drive device. You will see the device specs and a model number. Go to the manufacturer's website and find your device's family product line. Do some research on the devices and compare features. You may find one device with the right size but not the right speed. Also some trade-offs may be speed for power consumption on your battery or heating and noise. I like the Hitachi Travelstar series with the 7200rpms speed. The largest size available right now is 500Gb. Make sure you back up your system before you replace a hard drive. I recommend using an external drive with Time Machine to reload your system. …

Yes, virtually all SATA 3.5" drives will work. I have 2x1TB & 2x 1.5TB in my Mac Pro 3,1. I can't se Yes, virtually all SATA 3.5" drives will work. I have 2x1TB & 2x 1.5TB in my Mac Pro 3,1. I can't see any reason why it won't except for it being faulty.
Just shut down your Mac Pro, take the side cover off, slide out the drive carrier and assemble the drive onto the carrier using the screws provided, then slide the whole assemble back into your Mac Pro. Replace the side cover, power up and use Disk Utility to format the drive.
Personally I'd use the larger drive to be your startup drive.
