Yes the WD Scorpio Blue 500GB WD5000BEVT get a good review. So it´s down to it and the Seagate Momentus 5400.6 250GB 5400rpm (2.5"). I think i will go for the Momentus, unless someone says that somethink else is better.

I will go with the 1/2inch as well. I to always use the metric system. The other measurements have always confused me. We don´t use them in my country, except for some few lumber measurements and such.

Thanks spookmineer for the heads up on the 11,1 mm could be to hard to fit to the Laing D5 pump. I will find another tube )12 mm ID). But why not go all the way up to Dimensions:19mm outer diameter; 13mm inner diameter, or are they to difficult to work with.
