Hello and welcome,

 

Per the base spec: http://www.lenovo.com/psref/pdf/withdraw/ThinkPad_T430.pdf

 

Some: Solid State Drive (SSD) / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: Hard Disk Drive / SATA 3.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high, Active Protection System

 

Pretty much any 2.5" 7mm HDD will work.  Brand doesn't matter, so per your personal preference.

 

For reference, here are the machine specs per your S/N:

 

i5-3210M(2.50GHz),8GB RAM,500GB 7200rpm HD,14in 1366x768 LCD,2GB NVIDIA N13P-NS1,CDRW/DVDRW,Intel 802.11bgn wireless,Bluetooth,1Gb Ethernet,UltraNav,Secure Chip,Fingerprint reader,Camera,6c Li-Ion,Win7 Pro 64

I don't have any experience with SSHD drives but if it's really 7mm thick it should fit.

 

My preferred way of running this kind of laptop is a large-capacity standard HDD as a data drive and an mSATA SSD of sufficient capacity to hold OS and apps, rather than a cache mSATA or caching SSHD.

 

FWIW,

Z.
