I purchased this to replace the original drive that came with my Toshiba Satellite notebook because I'd managed to murder it. This one is twice the size of the original. I love having the ability to save many movies on my hard drive so that I can take them with me without having to drag a huge case of DVDs around. It performs well, the speed is quite satisfactory, and I'm very happy with it. The only improvement would be if someone would make larger capacity internal hard drives for notebooks with the OEM depth of 9.5mm instead of the 12mm most of the 1TB and all of the larger capacity (> 1TB) drives are.

After purchasing 2 WD Velociraptor (600GB & 1TB), I was comfortable purchasing this drive. So far so good. Mainly I use it for storage purposes. It's rock solid, fast and responsive, and it's miniature compared to its 3.5" counterpart's form factor which makes it even more mobile. In combination with my enclosure, I have no worries about it crashing.

This was an incredible good buy for the money; a 1TB brand-name mini HDD. It is quiet and fast, and does not get warm in operation.
I had first bought one of those white-labeled drives (before I bought this Western Digital), but it arrived DOA. So no more white-labeled HD drives for me. Then I saw this one, which was actually a few dollars less than the white labeled drive. AND it is a brand-named WD, AND it came from Newegg....
I did a full R/W surface scan on it after installation just to be sure, and it passed with flying colors, not a single error.
To sum it all up in two words: SUPER buy!

I purchased this product as my WD My Book was on it's last leg and I could tell it was about to die and wanted to try a smaller form factor than the traditional 3.5" external drives. Coupled with a Oyen Digital Mini Pro, this little beast is quicker than the old My Book I had (both running at 5400 RPM). This drive is getting me a throughput of ~75MB/s connected through Firewire->Thunderbolt adapter for my rMBP and is almost 25MB/s faster than my old WD My Book! Overall, very satisfied and would purchase again.
