      This is the most reliable and most quiet drive to use in a small paperback book size of a dual drive RAID1 installation like the Tough Tech Duo, recommended by Jared Platt in his LR Workflow series on CreativeLive. The Hitachi drives and the Wiebe Tough Tech Duo controller have given me total piece of mind from immediate and continuous mirroring of everything I do in Lightroom photo cataloging, selecting and editing. I bought 6 of the drives for off-site backup storage and monthly change-off of drive pairs.

      Perfect ps4 upgrade

      By Steve O

      from USA

      Comments about HGST 1TB Travelstar 2.5" Mobile Hard Drive:

      I bought this to upgrade the hdd in my ps4 and it works perfect. Download times and game loads are a little faster on this 7200 rpm drive over the 5400 rpm drive that was originally in it. The original hdd in ps4 was the hgst 500gb so this was perfect switch being the same brand hdd.

      Low cost

      By Caleb

      from Dallas

      Comments about HGST 1TB Travelstar 2.5" Mobile Hard Drive:

      I bought this for my UDMA2. It's low cost and fits. If you are moving at all while using the UDMA2 running it buzzes as if it's grinding on something, so I just am careful with it while I'm backing up cards. It does have a guarantee, so I trust it.

        I used this to replace a hard drive in my MacBook Pro after a few months of crashes, and now my computer works better than when I got it new! I would definitely recommend this product, especially if your AppleCare runs out - it's SUPER EASY to replace.

                                  Comments about HGST 1TB Travelstar 2.5" Mobile Hard Drive:

                                  a fast $ dollar notebook replacement. I replaced my MacBook Pro internal hardrive, 7200rpm, it is fast--cost effective replacement--it is a old notebook, so putting in a SSD was not a cost effective option. I have been using HGST drives for years, and never had any issues with them

                                  Comments about HGST 1TB Travelstar 2.5" Mobile Hard Drive:

                                  I bought this HD to replace the one original one in my 17" MacBook Pro.
                                  It was recommended by a friend who actually found it elsewhere on the web for much more. Luckily I found it substantially cheaper on B&H, (otherwise they would have priced matched). I know very little about HD and computer parts but went with what my friend recommend. I ordered it and it came very swiftly, (as always with B&H). I love that it has a LOT of SPACE! Compared to the original 320gb that the original HD installed. I'm a happy camper with this HD. Plus I was able to use a gift card that B&H issued to me a few years ago for attending the Moose Cruise around Manhattan. They loved the work I published with A&I Book Creator. Thank you B&H!!!
