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.

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.
