Comments about WD 1TB Laptop Mainstream HDD Retail Kit:

I put the hard drive. It turned out does not work itself Comp. I am in a quandary - whether it is possible to return the hard drive, if it's my fault?

    Works good, reasonably fast, by my estimation. Installation was easy, but instructions say for a professional to do it.

      Comments about WD 1TB Laptop Mainstream HDD Retail Kit:

      Needed an SATA 3 HDD with 5400rpm for my slighlty outdated Sony laptop. With the original HDD the laptop was very slow, so I was disappointed to find out that I couldn't use a solid state drive. While certainly not as fast as an SSD, this drive runs faster and quiter than the original Toshiba drive. Possible of course that the original drive was defective from the start, but I certainly feel that this one was a good buy.

        Needed this drive to fit in an OWC Data Doubler due to the limits of a MBP in which the optical drive bay could only accept SATA II drives. This worked.

            Comments about WD 1TB Laptop Mainstream HDD Retail Kit:

            I've only had this hard drive in my laptop for a week or so now, but it seems to be a great price for the quality. Obviously only time will tell, but for now I'm satisfied. I've used Western Digital products for awhile now and they're pretty reliable. This one was great for an old mid-2009 macbook pro, which needed an upgrade, but wouldn't make use of 7200 RPM or SATA III drive.

              Installed quickly and easily. Cranked up right away with Mac OS 10.8. Working well, loaded up with apps and files.
