Summary: Probaby not going to use it. if I do, its going to be an external storage only.
Pros: Size for the price.
Cons: Died in a month. Had to rush to fix it for my customer. Ended up costing me money replacing it through toshiba acclaim. Got the replacement but I am hesitant to install it. So I bought a WD 1tb locally.
Summary: I installed the operating system on the drive an all seemed well, then after getting updates it said to "restart the computer" and when I did, the drive has never been recognized again. not in any laptop I try to put it in, the Bios will not recognize that there is a drive present. I am not satisfied with this purchase as the item is defective.
The laptop was restored using Toshiba's restoration disk set and the laptop is just used at home like a desktop

Summary: Purchased this hard drive to replace the failed hard drive in a Toshiba Satellite L755 laptop. This hard drive was selected because it is the same specs as the original hard drive. The laptop was restored using Toshiba's restoration disk set and the laptop is just used at home like a desktop, it is not taken on travel. Yet, this new hard drive has failed in only 11 months.
Summary: This came in my Acer E1-572P-6857, the laptop is a cheap laptop only for really internet, work and Netflix. It works pretty well the processing power is all I need the only problem is the laptop will hang sometimes and in task manager the only thing being tasked is the Hard drive at 100 percent constantly. I would not suggest this hard drive to any it will just hinder fast laptops.
Summary: I purchased this drive in April 2014 as an upgrade for my late-2008 Macbook Pro. It is now November 2014 and the drive has already prematurely failed. Luckily I have all of my data backed up to a cloud service and external drive.
Summary: Drive never worked. I formatted it a few times and then two different computers wouldn't recognize it for more than 30 seconds. I could hear it spin up and then click, click, click. Don't waste your money. I learned my lesson and I will never stray from WD again.
