WD Black2 Dual Drive Still going

Pros: I bought this Dual Drive back in 2014 to replace the 640GB HDD that came in my HP laptop I bought new in 2012. I wanted the speed of an SSD for my OS, but didn't want to sacrifice space for movies and games. Along comes the Dual Drive.
The drive has worked great for me and is likely going to outlast the laptop. I would always use the laptop heavily, especially traveling for the military or wherever I was going, as well as at home. The laptop has fallen off the table a couple times and the drive still works 4 years into owning it. It does exactly what it's supposed to do.

Cons: I remember paying $330 for it new, but according to my purchase history I payed $243. I remember paying the higher price because it dropped $30 right after I bought mine. I thought $330 was expensive back then, but seeing how much it costs now I'm glad I already have one.

Overall Review: Look to other online retailers if you really want this drive. It's MUCH cheaper. Not sure why Newegg lists it for over $700 now.

I still love the drive and it still functions flawlessly. I have a new laptop now and it's still in the old one. I've been trying to decide what to do with it when that laptop finally decides to quit on me.

$700+ !!! One can buy 2TB SSD's for that price.

Pros: It is perfect for space constrained laptops. A single drive that gives you best of both worlds.

Cons: Too expensive (some times more than SSD's). individual 120GB ssd + hdd cost 1/5th.
Only 120GB SSD. It would have been great to have options of larger SSD capacities with single or dual sata interfaces to choose from.

Overall Review: Make sure that windows is not tossing the programs and program settings to the hdd. One of my laptops had the HDD being used for windows program data. This will create performance issues later as running programs get bulkier and more in number. Lost 2 eggs for: not having higher ssd capacities and the price.

Great for a laptop with 1 slot

Pros: 2 drivers for a 1 slot laptop. SSD is as fast as a really good 7200rpm HHD even if it's not the best SSD. Been using it daily for about 1.5 years. Guess considering all the stuff i'm reading I got a good one. Either way....I am happy

Cons: Stutters sometimes when multitasking.

Perfect solution for laptops with only one HD Slot

Pros: I have had no issues with the solidstate portion of the drive and I bought it 2 years ago.
You get the benifits of both types of HD in one small package
Also included software to clone existing drive

Cons: None

Get the speed of an SSD and the capacity of a 1TB HDD all in one drive!

Pros: -120GB SSD for OS, startup programs, and frequently used programs
-1TB HDD for storage of documents, pictures, music, videos, large programs, etc.
-Takes the space of only one normal drive

I bought a budget gaming laptop back in 2012, and it was my primary PC for a long time. I have an extensive steam library, and I had quite a few games installed, but the laptop only came with a 500GB HDD. I was looking into upgrading to 1TB when a friend had mentioned this product, which I thought was too good to be true. To my pleasant surprise, this product did exist, and I found it on sale for a really reasonable price that I can't remember off hand. I believe I purchased this product in early 2015 and installed this without a second thought and it has been working phenomenally ever since. I have experienced a huge boost in boot time and since I have my frequently used programs on the SSD, normal use has seen a significant improvement as well. I've read many reviews complaining about the software, but this must have been fixed by the time I got it as I experienced no issues whatsoever. It breathed new life into this older laptop and has since helped it age very very gracefully. It's really the best solution for both SSD speed and the capacity of an HDD at a decent price, or at least it was when I bought it.

Cons: -None that I've experienced

Overall Review: It appears that this item is no longer manufactured by Western Digital, which is an absolute shame. I can think of many other devices that I'd love to put this drive in, but the limited quantity of what's left seems to have driven the price up astronomically. It's a shame, and I have yet to find a comparable product, but hopefully they'll make a new version some day.

Great Product, while it lasted

Pros: * Nice idea
* Works well
* Good, fast boot times

Cons: * The "software" by what I can tell edits the firmware of the drive, so if the computer freezes, crashes or blue screens during the installation, the drive has become a $400 paperweight.

* Plug and Play is non existent

* The HDD and SSD don't act as separate drives or as separate partitions, until the "software" is "installed"

* No Linux support for the "Software"

Overall Review: Note: You can use Linux on this drive, just have a separate partition for the windows install with the "software" installed.

I wouldn't recommenced this product due to the "software" issues
