  • Excerpt: It's a 1TB drive, and it's not super expensive. It's twice as thick as a typical notebook difficult drive. It will not fit inside the HD compartment in my laptop due to it's thickness. Make sure you measure how deep your HD compartment is before you try to acquire this drive.

  • Excerpt: Western Digital, 1TB capacityExcellent for external storage if your external bay accommodates the odd size.See CONS **WARNING about thickness ***Warning to BuyersThis drive is thicker than the typical normal laptop drivesStandard drives are 9.5mm thick. This one is 12.5mm AND WILL NOT fit in a lot of laptops. The drive would have worked nicely, if it had been the regular size of 9.5mm thick. This does not fit in a Dell XPS 1330 Laptop.

  • Excerpt: First 1TB 2.5" HDD. Plenty of space, even if a little slow.WD's RMA approach seems to be really good (hence the 2nd egg). Any challenging drive that has issues immediately after a month doesn't bode well. I began having key slowdowns - drive transfer speed would drop to KB/s and the computer would appear to freeze. I checked the Smart status and identified several warnings for IDs 05, C4, and C5, which point to a lot of poor sectors.

  • Excerpt: It was an exciting obtain - to get a terabyte in the little 2.five inch drive. And, it does fit my MacBook Pro quickly. Very dependable organization. Also, my interactions with consumer service people today were outstanding. D.O.A. The device half worked for a couple of days, accepting back up files then when you plug it back in later, there was an error message. Normal RMA wanted me to pay for shipping and restocking fee.

  • Excerpt: Runs cool I was taken by surprise that WD's blue drives use 4k sectors (Advanced format). That is not in New Egg's description too. I was going to use it to upgrade my external enclosure, but the enclosure interface isn't Advanced drive compatible and I couldn't close the case since of the hight anyways. (I ought to have caught that in the description) I ended up employing it for a huge file dump on my XP machine.
