Summary: Bought this driving as I have enjoyed various other WD drives recently without any problems. I installed this drive into my Asus UL30VT and installed Win7 in no time. Then, I started hearing some aweful clicking sounds. I mean aweful and very distinct. I'm an experienced computer user and know my HDD sounds inside and out. The sound coming from this drive made me cringe on a very regular basis when I would hear it.
Pros: Huge capacity, Only 8.5mm tall (standard 2.5" size), Extremely quiet, sounds like very faint fuzz. I've never had such a quiet drive., Stays reasonably cool
Cons: Faulty firmware will cause self-destruction after a short life (without intervention)
Summary: Very pleased with this upgraded drive for my MacBook. The only problem I had was, that to install it I had to buy a small star shaped screwdriver from Maplin, as there are four screws in the old drive that I removed from my MacBook's hard drive which needed to be transferred to this new drive before it would fit in the MacBook.
