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...

Drive too tall

Lamonte Haynes, Amazon
26 January 2012
  • 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.

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.

Too big to fit in laptop

Andrew F., Newegg
6 October 2011
  • Summary: This is a Dell Studio 1555, a pretty common laptop.
  • Pros: Im sure it would work great if I could fit it in the laptop.
  • Cons: Newegg sent the wrong drive the first time, we rush and 2nd day aired the correct drive and upon arrival we discovered it was too thick to fit into the laptop. (after 7 hours of cloning) You would think they would mention this in the details.
