Summary: Purchased this to replace factory hard drive in PS3. Took a few minutes to install, and I had a huge amount of space for game downloads, etc. Since PS4 is around the corner, and I don't know how long the PS3 will be supported, it's nice to know that I can always keep my purchases on the hard drive and never worry about running out of space.
Summary: I bought this drive specifically to upgrade my PS3 slim 320GB to 1TB. The drive fit perfectly and was easy to install. So far it runs whisper quiet in the PS3 and I could not ask for more. After researching drives for the slim version of the PS3 I thought this one was a good value and it has not disappointed. Now it is just a matter of longevity, hopefully the drive holds up for a long time.
Summary: I am impressed with the speed of this drive in my 2009 Macbook Pro. This drive replaced a 2 year old Seagate 7200 RPM drive that was just too small. According to the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test (available in the Mac App store) this drive writes at 89 MB/s and reads at 95 MB/s. The 7200 RPM drive it replaced achieved 56 MB/s write and 61 MB/s read. Also, according to Coconut battery app it uses ~1 Watt less than the old drive.
Summary: I bought this to upgarde my hard drive in my PS3. did a back up to an external hard drive. 5 screws and it went in, then DL the back up and it worked out fine. went from 160g to a 1TB for a little over $100 cant beat that. made me very happy now i have lots of room for movies, games, music, photos, and more. very happy.
It works, and fits normal normal 2.5" Laptop dive bays

Summary: Finally, a 1TB 2.5" drive that is a standardized 9.5mm instead of the original 12.5mm of the old 1TB. The older model of this drive worked fine but would not fit in many devices because it was taller than the standard 2.5" Laptop Hard Drive. This drive fixes that issue by fitting within the normal laptop drive space. Perfect. Thank you Western Digital.
Summary: It's a hard drive. I received exactly what I was expecting, when I was expecting it. Packaging was good (rather unusual when ordering from Amazon), and it works perfectly. For a love score, I would have needed to be able to afford an even better drive.
Summary: I've been waiting for a 1tb Drive to fit in my 13" MBP for a long time, and this one does fit. The issue I have is that the drive is mounted in an OptiBay in the disk drive slot and I can hear every movement this drive makes. There isn't any vibration and transfer times are ok, but the noise from the drive is very noticeable over the stock drive that was in the Optibay up until this point. For those who are concerned with the noise I cannot recommend.
