Thicker than a standard 2.5" drive.

Sean Martin "-famousj6-", Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: This hard drive is bigger than a standard laptop hard drive. I originally bought it with plans to upgrade my PS3. It looked fine in the shot, and I trust Western Digital as a brand, so I ordered it. Unfortunately, I realized my mistake as soon as I pulled it from the anti-static bag.

  • Summary: I ordered these hard drives to fit into a slim desk top case that I use as a Jukebox were I keep all my music, and audio books.

Good Product for Price and Performance

Mahesh, Staples

  • Excerpt: Good product for the price and performance. I believe it is Reliable, but still not checked in Pros, as it's been only two weeks since started using it. I have used WD external drives in the past without any issue. Would Highly Recommend.

Spacious but slow

A D., Newegg
4 October 2012
  • Summary: If you're looking for a lot of space for cheap without high performance go for this drive. If you want performance and lots of space, consider using this drive alongside an SSD. I've done this with my Macbook Pro and am pleased with the performance boost from the SSD while having tons of space from...
  • Pros: Great value for money in terms of storage space. I have 4 operating systems on my laptop (since I write code for MacOS Lion and Snowleopard, Linux and Windows).... Couldn't have this many operating systems without a drive this large. I can carry my entire music and photo library on it despite hav...
  • Cons: Very slow - sometimes excruciatingly so. The speed hits during disk thrashing forced me to swap my DVD drive for an SSD (Corsair 240GB). This upgrade to an SSD has solved my need for speed while also allowing me to have the large amount of space provided by this mechanical drive.
