Great, until it died after a year

Eric Nelson, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • 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.

Don't Buy...... Big Mistake

Lee C., Newegg
10 August 2012
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Bought first one in June, it died less than a month later. Got RMA and second one. It just died, after only a few weeks. Got RMA for third one, hope it actually works more than a few weeks, when I get it. Hard to like it when it when it does not work very long. Save your money and get another bra...

Defective drive

John O., Newegg
19 June 2012
  • Summary: Buyer beware. Now I get to pay shipping charges to send the drive back.
  • Pros: Cheap price for 1TB notebook drive.
  • Cons: Drive arrived defective. Drive was extremely noisy and computer was not able to detect it. This drive should never have passed a quality control check.

DOA. Incorrect warranty information

Lei Z., Newegg
12 June 2012
  • Pros: None. Didn't work. Cannot format the drive.
  • Cons: DOA. The overview page says this drive has a 2 year warranty. It doesn't. Check the detailed page. I verified by WD and WD shows the drive has a 4 month warranty.

Waste of time and money

Jason C., Newegg
7 June 2012
  • Pros: It looks nice? Shiny. Made in Thailand. Lots of words on it.
  • Cons: Received second drive today and that also failed. It makes a nice paperweight? Now I get to spend another 12 bucks to ship it back. Aren't I lucky. I told the drive it was a failure and would never amount to storing anything. Its older brother was a failure too. Should of been aborted.

Careful - 12.5 mm Does not Fit

Sundeep B., Newegg
29 December 2011
  • Summary: I did not pay attention to the dimensions since it said laptop. There is a newer model which is more expensive so be careful
  • Pros: Huge space
  • Cons: If your not careful, you might get mad the fact you thought a laptop hard drive would fit but no the 12.5 mm height or tall side is too big for laptops.
