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.

DOESN'T FIT PROPERLY IN 2011 MACBOOK PRO 13!!!!

leachb, Amazon
23 October 2011
  • Summary: I have seen some people writing reviews that that they have installed this drive in a macbook pro. It fits, but not without it's side effects, at least with the new 13" macbook pros. This Scorpio Blue drive is 12.5mm thick. The original 320GB drive that comes with the macbook is a 9.5mm drive. What happens when you try to install a 12.5mm HDD in one of the 13" macbook pro is that you have to really force the back cover of the macbook over the drive to close it up again.

Does not fit the PS3 Slim; prefer the

Tiago Ramos, Amazon

  • Summary: This model (WD10TPVT) does not fit in the Playstation 3 slim. Intead of this, prefer the another model (WD10JPVT) (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007WMAAT0/) that surely fits!

Works great in mac, but....

Tom Thomas, Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: Had a devil of a time getting my macbook pro 17" unibody to "see" this drive ultimately it never allowed me to install snow leopard directly onto it. I had to put it into an firewire enclosure and clone my existing drive onto it. Then I installed the drive and its worked fine ever since.

Buyer Beware

Thomas Doyle, Amazon
25 August 2010
  • Summary: The Amazon web page for this product Western Digital 1 TB Scorpio Blue SATA 5200 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Notebook Hard Drive WD10TPVT shows it paired with an Acomdata case for 2.5 inch drives Acomdata USB 2.0 2.5-Inch SATA Hard Disk Enclosure HDEXXUP-240-BLK (Black) . In fact you can click a single button on the Amazon web page and order them together. From all this one might think that the drive will fit into the case.

Fits my 15" MacBook Pro (circ early 2009)

S. W. Cantrell, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: Dropped this into my 15" MacBook Pro from early 2009 (the one with the removable battery cover) and it fits without any issues. Booted up off the DVD, installed snowleopard and did a Time Machiene restore and was up and running in no time. It's a bit noiser than the original, but heat and battery life are unchanged. Love it! UPDATE Jan 2011. Have recently swapped this out in favor of my original 320 drive from Apple.

eingeschränkte Kaufempfehlung

stephan-279, eBay.de
19 February 2012
  • Summary: Preis-Leistungsmäßig ist die Festplatte eigentlich sehr gut. Bei mir hat sie allerdings gleich am ersten Tag nach 10 Minuten den Geist aufgegeben. Für die Einlösung der Garantie und die Rücksendung an Western Digital muss man die sehr vielen kleinen Haken beachten und die Porto/Päckchen-Kosten (incl. Verpackungsanforderungen) selbst tragen (werden nicht ersetzt), eine Kreditkarte muss "als Sicherheit" hinterlegt werden..

  • Summary: Wie es aussieht lernt man in diesem Bereich nie aus - habe nicht gewusst dass eine 2.5" Festplatte unterschiedliche Bauhöhen haben kann.
