I have received my hard drives

mike c, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I ordered these hard drives to fit into a slim desk top case that I use as a Jukebox were I keep all my music, and audio books. Because of the limited room in the case I can not get more than two of the standard hard drives in place so I purchased 3.5" brackets that will allow 2.5" hard drive to...

Good Product for Price and Performance

Mahesh, Staples

  • Excerpt: Good product for the price and performance. I believe it is Reliable, but still not checked in Pros, as it's been only two weeks since started using it. I have used WD external drives in the past without any issue. Would Highly Recommend.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet

Spacious but slow

A D., Newegg
4 October 2012
  • Summary: If you're looking for a lot of space for cheap without high performance go for this drive. If you want performance and lots of space, consider using this drive alongside an SSD. I've done this with my Macbook Pro and am pleased with the performance boost from the SSD while having tons of space from...
  • Pros: Great value for money in terms of storage space. I have 4 operating systems on my laptop (since I write code for MacOS Lion and Snowleopard, Linux and Windows).... Couldn't have this many operating systems without a drive this large. I can carry my entire music and photo library on it despite hav...
  • 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.

User Review

Torsten H., Newegg
17 May 2012
  • Summary: Like many people here I missed the fact that the drive is 12.5mm tall. It was supposed to replace a 500GB drive I used to use for backups and file transfer in an external enclosure, but the WD10TPVT did not fit.
  • Pros: + Lots of space + Quiet + Cool
  • Cons: - Taller than most laptop drives - Average transfer speed

Good Enough Drive

Maxwell H., Newegg
10 May 2012
  • Summary: If this drive came with a ssd cache partition or some other feature I could forgive the huge size but honeslty, it's a bit ridiculous that there are not huge disclaimers about this.
  • Pros: This drive performs quickly and is about on par in performance with other laptop drives I have had in the past, but honestly who buys a 1TB drive expecting stellar performance. Pair this with a solid state and you have yourself a pretty impressive storage solution. Massive size, both in data and ...
  • Cons: This drive is big. Like really big. I had to take an aluminum plate out of my laptop case to allow it to fit. It is at least 50% higher than an average 2.5" drive. Now that the plate is out, i'm not sure what it's purpose is. Perhaps to sheild expresscard slot devices from any forces on the hard ...

Harddrive to hold all my data

Christopher G., Newegg
26 August 2011
  • Summary: For the price, I thought it was worthwhile, I have a lot of information on my laptop and I needed this 1TB to give it enough space.
  • Pros: -Gigantic HDD space -Great price when I got it
  • Cons: -Bigger than your average harddrive, I had a problem fitting it into my laptop, but I finally got it in, doubt it'll ever come out though -5400rpm speed is a little slower than the 7200s, but it still works
