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.

Great Hard Drive for the money

Daniel E Theobald, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • 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.

Fit into my MacBook Pro just perfect

Alex Martinez, Amazon
13 August 2011
  • 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.

MacBook Pro 17 (mid 2009) Installed and Working Fine

stlouisbrad "stlouisbrad", Amazon
13 August 2011
  • Summary: Works fine. I "think" its faster than my old factory instsalled 512GB 7200RPM (which has failed twice). For a geek, using 4kb sectors is very cool! Step 1! Use Disk Utility, SuperDuper, or (my favorite) Carbon Copy Cloner (free) to "clone" your current system drive to an external one. Make sure you can boot to that drive (press Option key during bootup, then select it).

The hitachi was working fine, I just needed more space.

Fits 13" Macbook Pro alum unibody perfect, no mods

Phil SIlva, Amazon
13 August 2011
  • Summary: Fits current gen (as of Aug 2010) 13" Macbook Pro alum unibody perfect, no modifications needed. After searching the net like crazy to find out if a 12mm 2.5 would fit in a macbook pro, I finally just bought this exact one from amazon and it fits perfect. If you open the bottom of your macbook pro (unibody) you'll see that the height of the frame overlaps the stock 2.5" 9mm hard drive with room to spare. That's when i decided to buy the drive and it fits perfect.

Excellent in my MacBook Pro 13"

Kevin Edwards, Amazon
13 August 2011
  • Summary: In case anyone is wondering, this drive fits any Unibody MacBook Pro, including the 13", which is what I've installed it in. It also works on the pre-unibody 17" MacBook Pros. WD 2.5" drives have always worked really well for me. This one is quiet and low power. It's not the fastest drive, but I'd rather have longer battery life than a faster drive. And of course as of this writing, it's the largest drive available at 1TB.

Great drive - check the size first

noordinarydan, Amazon
13 August 2011
  • Summary: I have had no issues and am very pleased with this drive. This is the largest capacity 2.5" drive currently available on the market and is the SATA drive I have been waiting for (unlike the 1TB hard drives inside Western Digital's 1TB Passport that has a soldered USB connection). The drive is 12.5mm high compared to standard 9.5mm (due to 3 platters instead of the usual 2).

Perfect for MacBook Pro

Paul C. "Shinobi (Network Admin)", Amazon
13 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this drive for my 2009 Unibody 17" MacBook Pro and it rocks. It's speed is between the 7200 RPM 500 GB and the 5400 RPM 500 GB drives that come from Apple, but it is twice the storage. the 12.5 mm hight fits well within the Unibody MBP and the swap-out was quick and painless. I used CC Cloner to clone my Macintosh HD, then did a disk repair and permissions repair. After that I shut down, swapped drives, booted up and was in business.

Nice hard drive - if it fits!

RogerK, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • 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!
