Works great with Lenovo W510

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.
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.
Summary: I picked up six of these for my QNAP SS-839 Pro and they are working perfectly. They are quiet, run cool and are handling RAID 5 with no problem thus far. I only wish they weren't so expensive right now. Drive temperatures are between 80-86F under load. Transfer rates without using jumbo frames are around 65Mb/s. Since most of my transfers are over Wireless N this is the perfect setup for me. I will follow up in 6-12 months to provide an update on their near-term status.
Summary: I received this item quickly and appropriately packaged. It was literally a matter of minutes to swap out my factory drive for this one. I've been using it for weeks now with absolutely no problems. This drive meets and exceeds all of my expectations to date. No negative issues.
Summary: I bought 4 of these hard drvies to put in my Synology DS411 Slim. They work great in the NAS server. This is my first set of 1TB drives and they work well when used together. They also came at a good price. You cant go wrong with Western Digital, they are the best in the business.
Summary: Drive fits both physically and functionally into a Macbook Pro 13 (2009 unibody version). I had difficulty getting the mac to recognize the drive at first (as I cloned it using Carbon Copy, and alternatively, Mac OS X's built-in disk utility) ... cloning the existing hard drive onto my new Scorpio Blue drive, then installing it inside the Mac didn't work (got to a flashing folder with a question mark on it, indicating the mac was unable to find the OS software).
Summary: Not much to say about this HDD. It's a typical Western Digital notebook drive. It runs smooth and quiet, it barely gets warm... so you know it isn't using much power. It is reasonably fast, but not a screamer. I think the drive trades speed for power savings. One very critical piece of information that is not mentioned anywhere is that this drive is not the standard 9.5mm thickness form factor - it is 12.5mm thick!
Summary: This review aims at commenting on the Western Digital 1 TB Scorpio Blue internal HD that fits into my MacBook Pro unibody. Recently I realized that my 500 GB HD was fast running out of space on my MacBook Pro 2.8 (2009 vintage). What to do? What to do? Should I sell my MBP and purchase a new 1 TB one? Well, even though MBPs have high resale value, I knew I stood to lose close to $1000 (not a happy thought).
Great Way to Expand your Hard Drive Storage on a HP Pavilion Dvt8, Not So much for a Dell Studio 1747 XPS

Summary: HP Pavalion DVT8 Notebook Hard Drive Installations I was down to my last 20gbs on my 320gb Secondary Data Storage Drive on my HP Pavilion Dvt8 Notebook and needed a bigger drive to handel all my files that I need on the go (I have a Windows Home server as well for the files I do not need to always take with me).
