Summary: My wife likes to take pictures and videos and never deletes any of them, not even the bad ones. This was a simple installation and with the right cable we were able to transfer her old contents to the new one without any problems. We went from a full 500 gig hard drive to the 1TB and she didn't lose anything. We increased her RAM at the same time. With 150.00 worth of parts we were able to keep from buying a new Mac. We used this with a Mac Book Pro without issues.
Excellent 1-TB drive: compact 9.5mm height for laptop use, very quiet, low power consumption, fairly fast, at a great price!

Summary: இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary: ѾѾѾѾѾ Highly recommended with warm fuzzies! I have two of these 1-TB drives installed in a laptop that is often used for the editing of photos, images, and very large video files. I had originally considered getting two of the faster 7200-RPM "Scorpio Black" series drives.
Summary: The drive appears to be working so far, but it is clearly a used drive that has been wiped, not a new one as listed (the bit of adhesive on the label, the piece of Scotch tape on the opposite side and the non-factory-sealed bag are real tipoffs). The drive was packaged in an anti-static bag sealed with a sticker. The vendor in my case was SERVERTECH.
False Advertising on Product Page, aweful cloning software

Summary: I bought this drive off of Amazon due to Western Digital's main website stating their 2.5 Blue Drives are 7mm, the size of what Ultrabooks use. Sadly, After trying to place the drive into my Laptop's bay, I come to find out it won't fit - it's a 9.5mm drive. I was so mad as It took me Half a day to try to clone my current drive off their aweful acronis software, which failed multiple times and borked my system in the beginning (had to go into my bios to fix).
Summary: I had no trouble installing the hardware, but I was replacing a drive, and the software to do the cloning had to be downloaded from the WD site. I had problems doing the copy, but that was because my laptop had come with a recovery partition that I eventually figured out was preventing the cloning from completing successfully. Since that partition didn't even have the version of Windows I was actually running, I deleted it and used Macrium to actually do the copy.
Summary: When I upgraded the internal hard drive on my Toshiba notebook computer from 250 gigabytes to 1 terabyte, it was the simplest hardware upgrade I have ever performed. The new drive fit perfectly in the tiny space vacated by the removal of the old drive. The new drive attached to the same cable connectors used by the old drive. I have now used my new 1 terabyte drive intensively for several weeks with no problems whatsoever.
