Summary: I needed additional hard drive space on my laptop because my music & video files seemed to be growing at an alarming rate. The 500GB HD that came with the laptop just wasn't cutting it anymore. I upgraded to this 1TB WD hard drive and it gave me the breathing room I needed plus future space for all the new files I will be adding. If you're looking for additional space I recommend Western Digital, they have a good reliable hd that will last you for a while.
Pros: The 12.5mm height factor fits perfectly in a ODD slim caddy, my friend bought this and wouldn't fit his laptop so he gave to me instead of returning... I bought a ODD slim caddy for around 10 bux and removed my dvd drive to fit this to go along side of my SSD. These are like green drives for your desktop, store stuff!
Cons: Need the right caddy to fit your laptop, look for something like this, but make sure its 12.7mm thick (AND FITS YOUR LAPTOP)-- newegg didn't have the one I need but here's a sample: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0U008P2476
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.
