Summary: I ordered this a Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1 TB 2.5" 5400rpm Internal Notebook Hard Drive But i received this instead a defective Western Digital Blue 1 TB WD Blue SATA II 5200 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Notebook Hard Drive And because i opened the packaging i can't return it so i'm out a $115.00 and stuck with a hdd that doesn't work...
Summary: Bought this OEM for my MacBook unibody in September 2011. Last week I noticed I could only boot Windows but not OSX. Reinstalled OSX and thought it was fixed. Now it won't boot anything but the installation disk. Disk Utility says there are problems with the hard drive that makes it unable to repair. That indicates hard drive failure.
Summary: It was great to have enough space for both MacOS and bootcamped Ubuntu on my Macbook pro, but the drive died after a year. Who knows, maybe this was the 1/1000 that died early, but I will be buying a Seagate or something else next time.
Summary: I removed the DVD drive on my Lenovo, and replaced it with the harddrive using the Thinkpad Sata HD Bay Adapter 3. It's been a year now, and I have no complaints what so ever. Good performance and access speeds.
Does not fit in optical drive caddy in MkbPro15/2011
ALK "AK", Amazon
2 February 2012
Summary: I got this drive with a single purpose of getting it into the Macbook Pro 15 early 2011 as a second drive. I have an optical drive caddy holding a hard drive in it but this thing is too fat to fit into the caddy it sticks up way too much. come to find out there is newer model but i don't know if i will be worrying about changing this over again until they get a model that's a little faster.
Summary: This drive is 12mm tall and cannot fit into my laptop. My drive bay max hight is 9.5mm and currently fits a samsung drive.I tried putting the WD drive into an external enclosure but again the enclosure is 9.5mm in height and the WD could not fit. A waste of money.
Summary: I purchased this hard drive for my PS3, it took about 15 mins. to install, including a slight modification to the hard drive tray. Now I have a 1TB PS3!! Very straight-forward install. It's very quiet and has plenty of room for all my games and then some.
Summary: My computer: Macbook Pro 13" Mid-2009 (aluminum unibody). The harddrive has been working great. It's quiet and installing it took only a couple of minutes. One thing to note is that you need a special screwdriver called a "Torx" (the tip looks like a star) in order to move the mounting screws from your old HD to the new HD. I got one at home depot for $5. Other than that you only need a phillips head screwdriver.
