HP Laptop 350 G1 (G4S61UT#ABA) Intel Core i3 4005U (1.7GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Windows 7 Pro, optical drive, light weight for size, decent battery life, clear display, and DVI out for projector

Cons: Size (if you are looking for a small machine this is not for you), plastic construction, and unneeded software factory installed

Other Thoughts: Bought this to use at church for MS Publisher, Powerpoint, and to run a projector for Christian education. It does all of these things well but not a great machine for running multiple programs. Keep the open windows down and it does great.

WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Mid-2011 Mac Mini Upgraded to Fusion drive 03/02/2015

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

Pros: Improved performance and additional storage in the same space as the old drive. Well worth the time and effort. This Mac Mini has been fully hot rodded with this drive, 16Gb of Ram and some other upgrades. My wife uses this for CS and photo tasks.

Cons: The process to set up and install as Fusion drive is tedious and not for those who are not comfortable with doing complex set-up.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased three of these for progressively lower prices and all are installed in Macs as Fusion drives at this time. I find these drives to be a nice balance between speed of SSD and storage of the standard hard drive.

WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5

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"
