Summary: Very Impressed with this, very high read and right speeds even when both are running, install was like any other hard drive, one thing I do not like is that you cannot configure the 1TB HDD without WD Software and that Disk Manager in Windows sees both as SSDs. Beside that I have one complaint, when reading or writing to the hard drive there is sometimes a little "wine" from the hard drive, not that loud but is noticeable sometimes, but if that is the only draw back for...
Very Fast & Very Flexible - once you get it set up.

Summary: I purchased this drive when I was upgrading my laptops. I find that it is a little touchy (especially on older laptops) to get the installation done correctly, but once it's done....WOW! The WD software divides the single drive into 2 logical drives so that the OS resides completely on the SSD portion and then you can install the pics, movies, vids, etc. on the HDD portion. So you get the benefit of both at a very affordable price.
Summary: This drive is phenomenal. SSD is the way to go. My Satellite L755 is easily twice as fast as it was before the upgrade, and there is more than enough room for Windows 7, Office 2010, and any other much used software. Then there is plenty of storage on the conventional drive. I would recommend this drive to anyone looking to upgrade their older laptop, or even a desktop.
