After market
 
I searched the threads but was unable to find answer to this question. Can you change out STA hard drive for digital hard drive at a later date on a Mac Book Pro? If you can Is it worth it and what are the pluses and minuses of doing so?

Welcome to Mac-Forums

"STA hard drive", "digital hard drive"??? Do you mean Seagate and Western Digital? There are many folks that swap out the HDD that came with the MBP to a SSD, so I imagine changing HDD brands is no problem..

The newer iMacs have some firmware that's associated with the HD that makes it not a trivial swap out to ensure that the fans and other thermal management doesn't freak out..
