    This one is 2Tb and 7mm; worked great in my new Dell laptop when I upgraded to a NVMe SSD and this drive. Now it boots quick and has storage to spare.

    I use this HDD for a secondary drive to download my games for my gaming laptop. Excellent capacity and read/write times. Highly Recommended

    Great hard drive for my laptop. I added it into my MacBook Pro as a new primary hard drive and it has worked great in it. The hard drive was easy to replace. The storage capacity is adequate and gets a Lotta room for media files.

    Western Digital is not my favorite drive to use, because I have had failure with them in the past. I was running critically low on storage on my laptop though, and needed a quick replacement. This did the trick and it did not break the bank. Eventually I want to replace it with an SSD of the same size but they are between 6 and 11 times the cost right now, depending upon the make and model

    Decent drive, with realistic expectations

    Purchased this drive to increase a home media server capacity for a HTPC. It was decently reasonably priced for a 2.5" drive. It works well enough that I have no issues with its purpose. I would not recommend it as a primary drive or heavy use drive on a normal use PC as it's not very fast though, but it's great as secondary storage. CrystalDiskMark shows sequential reads of 96MB/s and writes of 116MB/s. Random reads and writes are slow as expected. About 1.2MB/s reads and 1.5MB/s writes, with Q=1 reads at only 0.4MB/s.

    Massive storage for a PS4

    Bought this for my PS4 to replace an external adapter kit that housed a 2TB drive. The spin speed is only 5400RPM, slower than the 3.5" drive I was using but I find no issues with it. In some ways, it feels faster, snappier than the larger drive. PS4 OS works well with it and 2TB is a great capacity for the machine. I wanted to go full SSD but this was a great alternative. Machine is quite responsive with spinning platters. Appreciative customer.

    been using western digital hd way way back... never had problems, now this no touch ramp tech that are being used on blue drives add peace to my mind. . right now I am using this as a backup for big music files in various format, and some personal files, I expect this to last like the ones I used in the past which to this day, are still working as good as before, except they have smaller capacity. . I use a docking hdd for backing up, which I also connect to a blu ray player and play the music through an amp and Stereo receiver and listen to uncompressed music which comes out excellent. . could not ask for anything more...

    A good HDD if you can get it to work in a PS4 Slim

    Alright normally I would give this five stars but I bought this to double the capacity of the new PS4 Slim I got for Christmas and I switch them out fun fact the hard drive bracket is actually deeper than the hard drive that comes with the system and the same is true with this drive. I replaced the drives and set everything up but then it started constantly crashing. Sometimes it would crash then I would turn it on but then other times it would crash and when it came on it said that the system software hit a glitch and asked me to send an error report. However I know the software is fine because once I put the stock drive back in everything was fine. Thankfully I still had my external drive. So I'm sure this is a great drive and maybe someone else can make this work in a PS4 Slim. I would stick to using it in a laptop. So I would still recommend it. Just not for a PS4.
