Summary: died on me in less than 3 days. Maybe it was used and maybe it wasn't a smart time to buy but I do like the idea to save a little money otherwise I would have given only one star. I'd try something else or get it new..
Summary: I was attempting to use it with Windows 2012 only to find out that there is a partition tool required to activate the 1TB partition and that partition tool has limited OS support, only Windows 7/8.
Summary: I did a fresh install of windows 7 with this drive and the 120GB part of the drive installed just fine. The trouble came when I went to install the 1TB part of the drive, it uses WD software to access it and the software is not compatible with Win 7 32 bit. I had to go through 2 tech support agents waiting for just under 1 hour before they figured that out. I will be buying the Samsung 500gb SSD for the same price.
Summary: so let me first say I do have the luxury of a second bay on my laptop (dell e6410 i7), however I wanted to give this new configuration a spin since WD has consistently made some major improvements in all their lines especially the "Black" line - overall the idea here is a good one, although not so new since Seagate has been doing a similar thing albeit smaller scale SSD with their Momentus platform (other mfg'er.
Summary: I knew that it's not going to perform as it was only SSD but what happened was true disappointment. I am using this as a DJ with Serato DJ and controller so hoped instead external hdd I could put system on ssd and all my music on 1tb hdd. System on ssd worked fine, faster than my previous hdd - no issues with that.
Summary: ich hatte die Partition der Festplatte gelöscht. Anschließend konnte weder Win7 noch die Win7 installationsroutine auf die Platte zugreifen. Auch der Versuch per USB von einem anderen PC mittels dem speziellen Tool auf die Platte zugreifen funktionierte nicht, da das Tool die Platte icht fand. Der telefonisch Support konnte nicht weiter helfen. Der Call wurde an Spezialisten weiter geleitet. Diese antworteten 4 Tage später. Tolle Zeit wenn man ein neues Notebook braucht.
