Great product, I sill have it here at my desk up and running... connected thru a USB3-SATA Cable for my backups... 1/7/2016 7:43:28 AM

Pros: WD has been more reliable than Seagate for me...

Cons: It was abit slow running it using a USB 2.0-SATA connector but after getting a USB3-SATA connector, the drive flys to 70-90MB/s writting..

Spacious but slow 10/4/2012 4:10:30 PM

Pros: Great value for money in terms of storage space. I have 4 operating systems on my laptop (since I write code for MacOS Lion and Snowleopard, Linux and Windows).... Couldn't have this many operating systems without a drive this large. I can carry my entire music and photo library on it despite having so many partitions.

Cons: Very slow - sometimes excruciatingly so. The speed hits during disk thrashing forced me to swap my DVD drive for an SSD (Corsair 240GB). This upgrade to an SSD has solved my need for speed while also allowing me to have the large amount of space provided by this mechanical drive.

Overall Review: If you're looking for a lot of space for cheap without high performance go for this drive. If you want performance and lots of space, consider using this drive alongside an SSD. I've done this with my Macbook Pro and am pleased with the performance boost from the SSD while having tons of space from this drive. To read about how I did this google for "Arvind Pereira Macbook Pro upgraded dual hard drive". The first link in the results points to my post which has info and links about how I performed the upgrade.

PERFECT if you know what to do with it 9/7/2012 11:19:56 AM

Pros: The 12.5mm height factor fits perfectly in a ODD slim caddy, my friend bought this and wouldn't fit his laptop so he gave to me instead of returning... I bought a ODD slim caddy for around 10 bux and removed my dvd drive to fit this to go along side of my SSD. These are like green drives for your desktop, store stuff!

Cons: Need the right caddy to fit your laptop, look for something like this, but make sure its 12.7mm thick (AND FITS YOUR LAPTOP)-- newegg didn't have the one I need but here's a sample:

Probably good, be wary of the thickness. 9/6/2012 4:41:51 PM

Pros: 1 TB !!!!! Sent it in for return and they were nice and courteous and I will get a drive that will fit.

Cons: does not actually fit in my laptop, unable to test any other features. most drives are .37 in., this drive is .49 in.!

Overall Review: Beware the thickness!

We apologize for this inconvenience. The 1TB WD Scorpio Blue WD10TPVT model is 12.5 mm high and would not fit in your laptop. Western Digital has released the WD10JPVT, which is 9.5 mm high and has the proper dimensions to be connected inside your laptop.
Further information can be found at the product's specification and support page directly, via our support site.

Great, IF IT FITS 8/23/2012 8:19:26 AM

Pros: High capacity for 2.5" drives

Cons: Doesn't actually fit in the laptop. Newegg's claim is that it does mention on the details page that it is 12.5 mm and not the standard 9.5 mm. Really? Who would have thought you need to check the physical dimensions of a hard drive that hasn't had any variations in those dimensions, since it came out? Yeah, they got me with that one. It isn't worth paying $37.20 to ship them back to Newegg either. Now we know why the price was so low!

Overall Review: If it actually has to fit inside an enclosure or laptop, then make certain to find the other model number that is actually 9.5 mm thick, not this one.

It probably isn't fair to dock 2 eggs for Newegg not being more up-front about it not being the right size, but because it actually can not fit where it was bought to go, I wanted initially to put it at 1.. still do, but it is a great drive, as is the case with every other WD I've owned...

Don't Buy...... Big Mistake 8/10/2012 6:57:32 PM

Pros: None

Cons: Bought first one in June, it died less than a month later.
Got RMA and second one.
It just died, after only a few weeks.
Got RMA for third one, hope it actually works more than a few weeks, when I get it.
Hard to like it when it when it does not work very long.
Save your money and get another brand!!

Big drive but it died. 7/17/2012 5:50:46 PM

Pros: 1TB.

Cons: Died. Recovering 1 TB of data sucks.

Overall Review: Not the first WD drive I've had die. Makes me want to cry. Freezing the drive didn't help with recovery.

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the WD Mobile Blue, as this is not the typical experience with the product.
We recommend maintaining a backup of your data at all times, as a best practice, to ensure the availability of your information and minimal potential data loss. There are many variables that can result in a failed drive, such as power outages, accidental physical damage, and internal component failure from improper cooling. In any scenario, data recovery is not a fail safe, and we never recommend placing a drive in an extreme hot/cold environment, as this may further damage the device. For assistance with different backup solutions, please visit the information provided by the following links.
