WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works great in a Macbook but requires some work 12/14/2014

This review is from: WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5" 120 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD Kit WD1001X06XDTL

Pros: SSD and large storage in compact package - perfect for a laptop running iTunes. Once the drive was set up the install went smoothly

Cons: Set-up for a Mac is intensive but not hard. Standard HD is a bit slow to start after sleep but that is expected to me when compared to a SSD drive. Requires "Trim" management software in OS X.

Other Thoughts: Takes some significant steps to make this work on my late 2008 Aluminum Macbook as an iTunes server. Installed in a Win7 tower to install software and active drive. Transferred drive to Macbook and used the Mac Drive utility to divide the drive into two partitions - 120GB (SSD size) and 1TB (regular drive). Installed OS X on the SSD and moved the Music folder to the 1TB partition. Also, remember to tweek the OS X settings for a SSD drive and install software to manage drive "Trim"

macally G-S350SU3 Aluminum 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good quality and works as advertised. I love the look and feel of the aluminum case.

Cons: Higher price than other external drive cases.

Other Thoughts: Works great with a WD 3tb Green drive to back up my Macbook using Time Machine. Newegg delivers once again!

Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great price, WD brand, lots of storage space

Cons: A bit loud on spin-up but quite when working. I am using this as a Time Machine network storage drive for my Macbook Pro in a Macally enclosure.

Other Thoughts: The green drive is best used as a data storage drive, not for an OS. Use them this way and a WD Green drive will serve you well.
