Whisper Quiet

Milton M., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Pros: I wanted a fast but silent hard drive and couldn't afford a 1TB SSD. This Fit the Bill. It's as fast as my 2TB WD Black which is a 7,200RPM drive. Not bad at all. It's worth the extra price over the other drives in the same size. FYI my WD black is driving me nuts. It was SO loud.
  • Cons: price, and you can still hear it sometimes.

A super upgrade.

James S., Newegg
13 October 2014
  • Summary: This is really a neat option if you want a lot of storage and good performance but you don't want or need an SSD.
  • Pros: I bought this a year ago and delayed installing it because I had some room left on my old drive and I wasn't confident in cloning. I needn't have delayed - the cloning from my 512GB HDD was slick and quick using Acronis True Image HD. I went with an HDD since my computer, an Acer Aspire 5738-0699...

Nice for a data drive

Anonymous, Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Also ended up fitting a Mushkin 128GB(wish that I'd sprung for 256GB now) msata which I use as the boot drive. System is a Sager NP8250-S. (NOTE: there is a 2nd msata slot on this model, but it is disabled because of design defect and IIRC this model has been retired and replaced w/the NP8255 which...
  • Pros: Fit the other hdd bay(7mm originally meant for an ssd) under the optical drive(IIRC).
  • Cons: Slow. The primary drive shipped with this notebook is a 7.5k WD black 750GB drive and this drive is ssslllloooowwww compared to that drive, but there's NO other choice for the 7mm bay other than a MUCH more expensive ssd.

Its a WD

Miralem O., Newegg
1 January 2014
  • Summary: Ive fixed quite a few laptops in my days and came across all sorts of drives. Never quite one like this my hats of to WD for designing such a elegant sturdy drive. Also I must thank the folks at Newegg's EggXpert Review Program for sending me this product, it has been a delight using it, testing it,...
  • Pros: Where to begin Its a WD first of all and I have never had any problems with any of my WD purchases. From laptop drives to desktop drives to externals WD has always been my #1 choice... Anyways, I had some extensive time to test this puppy out, from having it in several different laptops to using ...
  • Cons: No Cons to speak of, I mean this drive has been dropped, as well as in external enclosure that was inadvertently dropped yet it still kept on chugging along (-:

Size Matters

Nathan R., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased a gaming laptop where the storage drive that it came with was a 750GB WD Black drive. I can't say that I'm overly impressed with that drive. But it works and keeps 750GB in a small package. I swapped this drive for that one and will say that I'm no less impressed by this drive.
  • Pros: Small Drive. Large capacity. I witnessed no issues with heat, sound, performance or reliability (within reason of what one could expect for only having used it only for a couple of months). It's Western Digital. Nuff said! Seriously though, everyone's got their favorite drive maker and everyone's...
  • Cons: It's a 2.5" hard drive. The very definition denotes that observational performance isn't going to impress the majority of users. So if you are buying this drive to Wow yourself with an added performance boost, you'll be left looking again when it's all said and done.

Could be better drive

Zoltan R., Newegg
2 November 2013
  • Summary: It could be much better with 8-24GB integrated SSD cache, not sure where those HDDs are, since WD were enthusiast to release 7mm 1TB drive with SSD cache.
  • Pros: It is the first 7mm 1TB laptop HDD, suits well for Ultrabooks. So far working without problem in my Samsung Series 5 NP530U4E Ultrabook. I did not run speed benchmarks, but feels as fast as the 9mm 1TB 5400RPM HDDs.
  • Cons: -Noisy, produce twice the spinning and clicking noise as my previous Seagate Momentus Thin 500GB HDD. It turns off very often for few seconds and start spinning again. I start to hate hearing that every time. -Expensive, had to buy in the USA, than manage here to Europe. It was still expensive.

Geared towards an Ultrabook

Nathan E., Newegg
23 October 2013
  • Summary: All in all, this is a nice drive. Quiet, cool and well built. Keep up the good work Western Digital!
  • Pros: I'm going to dispense with the data transfer speeds, as other reviewers have already done a good job of providing that data. I have to say that I really like this drive. I'm not sure how WD did it, but this thing packs 1TB of storage space into a super thin drive. It has a different look and feel...
  • Cons: The only con for me would be the price. This drive seems more geared towards ultrabooks that already run some form of SSD as the primary boot device. I don't know that I would spend the additional money on this drive if I were just going to throw it in my laptop because I needed more storage. The...

Great Supporting Hard Drive

Copy P., Newegg
9 October 2013
  • Summary: -2 Year Warranty (More than the standard 1 year warranty by law but not enough to give confidence). I put this in Other Thoughts because they are just my thoughts as a professional and a consumer.
  • Pros: -Storage Size vs Physical Size -Consistent Write/Read Speeds -Low Noise Output -Western Digital Brand name The WD Blue 1 TB 5400 RPM Slim hard drive arrived securely to my doorstep via appropriately sized containers surrounded by anti-static wrapping & laptop HDD sized plastic holders. The slimne...
  • Cons: -Drive RPM Speed Limits Transfer Rates Considerably The one thing holding this drive back is the RPM speed. I do understand that for the price range and capacity on the smaller disk format that it is still appropriate however. I would recommend that this drive is not used as a primary hard drive ...
