5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, With a single caveat

Pros: Excellent product. Hard to get any better then WD as far as hard drive reliability is concerned. The dual drive characteristics of this drive really do fit in the niche market of laptop or all in one upgrades.

I used this to upgrade the responsiveness and capacity of my wifes All in one, and I am not disappointed. The responsiveness, boot time and all around performance are excellent and well worth every penny spent. After the setup trial and error, I couldn't be happier, and plan on purchasing another one of these bad boys for my Work and Personal laptops as well.

Cons: The install process leaves something to be desired, However with that said I believe that WD did and continues to do everything possible to make the installation experience as painless as possible. The very nature of the dual drive requires you to have a decent level of understanding of your system and how to install the drives. Not only physically but system side as well. And WD does a very good job of giving you all the tools and information you could possibly need to complete this install.

Final thoughts: Read the documentation, and read it well. Watch the videos they provide.

Other Thoughts: It is an excellent product, Worth the time and money spent on it. The performance of the drives leaves nothing to be desired. Just make sure you read up and fully understand the installation procedures and your experience should be as enjoyable as mine has been.

3 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY FOR A TOWER SET UP

Pros: Compact, good for laptops, looks sleek.

Cons: SSD is great for OS and some games. The 1TB HDD is too slow for game data rates. They call it a WD black2. but in no sense does it have the 7200 rpm data rates like the
real WD black does. kinda tricked me due to the fact it was on sale. Thought it was a bundle not a one piece deal. should have read more. It caused alot of stutter in games when the hdd needed to upload more info. so bad i blamed it on my gpu. now that i got a regular black with my set up there is no stutter what so ever. i guys ill use the 1tb for music and movies then :s and schooling stuff.

Other Thoughts: I cried

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,
Your feedback provided to us within your review of the Black2 drive is appreciated. Please understand, it is important your cloned image does not break the 180GB formatted portion of the SSD portion of the drive to maintain proper operation. If a drive initially boots successfully following a clone, but Blue Screens on subsequent boots can be an indication of a damaged or corrupted boot file or the cloned image exceeded SSD partition. It is recommended to run a recovery from a Windows Install disk to repair the boot files or perform a fresh install of the operating system.
Follow the links below for more information regarding cloning or performing a fresh install of the operating system on the SSD 120GB portion of the Black2 drive.
“Cloning a drive to a WD Black² Dual Drive using Acronis True Image fails because the source drive has more data than the SSD portion of the drive”: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10491
“How to copy data from an original drive to a WD Black2 Dual Drive after said data was excluded during a cloning process”: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10490
Please note that it is possible to re-initialize the drive back to the factory state. Please see the article below.
“Error: 'Completion code: 24; Failed to create a new partition' occurs when running the WD Black² Installation Software”: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11403

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: fast boot in windows 8, good packaging, low cost, good warranty if needed

Cons: Cloning software out of date spent a lot of time before using another clone

Other Thoughts: This is a update to the 1 egg, turned out it was the cloning software problem

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop Upgrade

Pros: Only occupies a single 2.5" drive bay. The price was comparable to separate SSD/HDD options. Included cable/software to clone old drive.

Cons: The HDD wasn't readable until after I install software. Only really a con as I am going to be moving this drive to a new computer so I need to clean of the HDD section before I install it.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper prodict so far!!

Pros: Very easy to work with - just take your time (it doesn't take long) and follow the directions. This kit comes complete with everything needed for getting the job done (unless you are starting with a fresh OS install).

Cons: Absolutely real no issues encountered.

Other Thoughts: The only difficult part was that my particular laptop only has single USB ports on either side, and the data transfer cable needs 2 ports (one data and both for power). The cable for the additional USB power was too short to reach the additional one in the laptop cooler that I used specifically to try to get aroud the issue. In the end I just put andother laptop next to the one I was working on and that worked just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsgood so far

Pros: Drive is quite fast. Great way to get a large and fast drive at the same time. Using a 2009 MacBook Pro with 10.9 Mavericks.

Cons: If you're not careful or not expecting some work, I can see how you could stumble.

Other Thoughts: After reading the other reviews, I made sure to follow instructions very carefully. I also had a second computer running at all times, which was handy for formatting the usb stick, as well as keeping the instructional PDF open.

4 out of 5 eggsHappy I got one.

Pros: For the 130.00 I bought this drive, it was an absolute steal. It was an easy installation despite some other people complaining about it. Simply put its just download a file from their site, install and go. Even if you don't have access to the Internet you are still able to use the 120GB SSD.

Cons: Nothing of note, installed all games to the HDD and only have noticed minorly longer load screens. For a server computer, couldn't be happier.

Other Thoughts: Upon seeing this device function well into its 2-3 years mark, I would consider sticking with dual drives if they continue to be competitive.

4 out of 5 eggsSSD Size

Pros: Nice combo design. Very simply software, sweet.

Cons: SSD too small/slow. Most SSD's in the 120 to 128GB size are much slower than 250 to 256 GB and up. Transfer rates for the 250's and up are double what this drive can do.

Other Thoughts: Wait for the 256GB SSD version, if WD will release one.

4 out of 5 eggsA Decent Beginning on a Dual Drive

Pros: Fast Boot Drive, 1 TB storage Drive. A great concept.
Fast service as always from Newegg.

Cons: Not for a total non technical type. The software link was unavailable, it was marked plain that the site may be unavailable, and to continue on to the WD Support site for your software. I downloaded it after some careful reading.'

Other Thoughts: I had just minor problems with installation, In the end it was fairly simple. I did not get much in performance gain, other than a faster boot. To WD, This is a great idea. Improve upon this drive and I will buy the next go at it. A little bigger ssd even just for OS would make me feel better.
