We installed this disk in an Intel NUC box (Linux, ext4), and it's working fine. This is not a performance-critical system, but the disk is quite fast enough in ordinary desktop use.

This a reasonable product. Works like a charm on my Dell xpx 14z. The writing speed has gone up to more than 100mbps which is awesome compared to HDD. The system has become very fast and works just fine.

I bought this for my Toshiba Satellite C50A-i2012 laptop at Rs.429 (incl shipping) from Punjab Online to my place Kollam, Kerala. It was delivered through Delhivery. I've been thinking of upgrading my laptop with an SSD for a while now. Recently I bought the Sandisk 120GB SSDPlus SSD for Rs.2.3K from PrimeABGB.

PROS
---------
1. I bought the 9.5 mm version and fit perfectly inside my laptop.
2. The product is as per the description and images shown and is of good quality.
3. It's made of Aluminium and had a protective plastic coating on one side when I opened it. You need to remove it before installing.
4. Comes with a small Philips head screw driver. It is compatible with all the screws.

CONS
---------
1. The instructions were ambiguous and labelled in the wrong orientation. They say about a "caddy latch" but nothing like that was found on the caddy itself.

INSTALLATION
--------------------
1. Remove the protective plastic covering.
2. Use

Looking at the price of similar products and then finding it relatively cheaper, I had my doubts while placing the order. But this seems to be doing what it's supposed to be doing.
Pros:
- Works as expected
- Comes with a small star head screw driver

Conns:
- Nothing as such

I took out 1 star:
- There are no brand names
- There is a white plastic at the bottom plate, not sure of its use, but had to take it out (so that it could slide in) my laptop

PS: If this review was of any good, please like it to encourage :)

I have replaced the optical drive with this caddy and my 1TB hard disk is inserted in it it is working gud they have provided the screwdriver along with the caddy which is nice but they have not provided any supporting screw which will fit for HDD so the HDD is relaying only on support of optical drive port , which is disapointing hope it this will not damage the port

Things you get - The caddy itself + a screwdriver

The first time i booted into windows with the caddy installed. There was a constant 30% CPU usage even if the CPU was at idle. Opening the task manager i found that 'System Interrupt' was consuming the CPU. So i thought the caddy was the problem. But after a little googling i found that there is a switch beside the SATA connector which should be shifted right or left depending upon the computer. And by default this caddy came with the switch shifted to left. So i shifted it all the way to right and booted and to my surprise there wasn't any CPU Usage at all when the CPU was idle. So, anyone facing a high CPU usage after installing this caddy just flip the switch to

This caddy is well fitted in my Lenovo G580 -Ideapad. Best option is to put your SSD in the caddy and put the prev hdd in its place. Clone the SSD from HDD and then change the boot sequence from Bios (set SSD as primary). This will save some of your valuable time swapping 2 disks.
Seller was very prompt answering my presale questions. Caddy is well built. Also very happy as a small screw driver has been provided.

PACKING:
Packing, while not great, wasn't too bad either. Mine came wrapped in a healthy amount of bubble wrap placed inside a appropriately sized cardboard box. That said, it wasn't a snug fit. The HDD had some wiggle room inside the box. More bubble wrap or perhaps some foam/thermocol would have made it even more secure. Plus, a bit more tape on the outside wouldn't have hurt.

WEIGHT:
Quite a bit lighter than the drive it replaced, a Seagate 1TB 7200rpm (ST31000524AS) HDD. Probably the lightest 1TB HDD I've held.

SPEED:
Much faster than my old Seagate HDD. I don't recall its exact speeds but the max read speeds it could hit was only about 110 MB/s with average speeds under 100 MB/s. A quick Google search shows similar results.
This thing on the other hand gets close to 200 MB/s with a max read speed of 196.5 MB/s and an average read speed of 156.5

Hello Friends, Hard Drive is good and working nice, You can get 931.51 GB and when you installing the Window & Partition the Hard Drive you can get 929 GB. You can register your product at WD site for warranty. MRP is 4300 Rupees and I got it for 3299 Rupees. You can go for it. Amazon is Amazing.

Very quiet and good performance HDD previously had bought Seagate which used to make lot of noise. This one is silent and good. Only thing to note is that only in 1 TB you get 7200 rpm in higher storage (2 TB and above) it is only 5400 rpm. The 7200 rpm performs nearly 30% faster than 5400 rpm one but it depends on your personal choice. As far as the WD hard disk is concerned have used it for the first time and have become a fan of it. I would highly recommend this as this is the most dependable HDD out there in the market.

I have installed this HDD in my dell xps 15 and its running smoothly.
Takes some time to boot up the OS because of 5400 rpm quite obvious. The design is quite sleek than my previous HDD (seagate), which had stopped working because the head got stuck with beeping noise.
I find something not acceptable with this HDD,when I try to copy multiple files from one volume to another it lags little bit.I guess the writing is not up to the mark or maybe I had been using Seagate (Momentus)7200rpm I don't know.
If I compare with my previous HDD (seagate) obviously its 33% slower than any 7200 rpm HDD but, it's good if you want to store data,for quick boot you can go for 7200rpm or SSD.
Overall it's a good HDD

I find WD hard disks the most reliable these days. I bought this for my laptop. I have removed the DVD writer which had stopped working and installed this in its place using a caddy which is also available on Amazon. Only point to keep in mind is to ensure that the caddy thickness is correct. Most laptops use the 12.7mm caddy. If yours is a slim laptop it may require a 9.5 mm caddy (both are available on Amazon)

I bought this for HP-P073TX and the caddy fits perfectly into the system. Metal body build quality is ok. But the optical drive baffle (See part no.6 in demonstration pic), I had a tough time prying it out of the metal body. Infact I broke that entire part into two as it's 3 legs (press locks) got jammed into the slot in metal body. Be very careful with this past as it is made of very cheap plastic.

First things first - the package had:
1) The caddy
2) A generic phillips screw driver
3) 4 generic phillips screws in the caddy to hold the HDD/SSD drive.

I was little bit hesitant because there were way too many review claiming that this is a bit fragile/flimsy product. But after I got my hands on it, I was amazed to find out how well built it is. Even my HP SU-208 optical drive looks flimsier/ weaker than this. I don't know if others got flimsier batch of these or they are just metal experts.
I even unscrewed the top cover to see what's inside and guess what, there was only one cable ribbon which goes to back side of caddy for the light output.
Both WD SSD and my internal HDD supported out of the box (I didn't have to adjust the 4 way switch). But there is no 4 way switch

Its really a nice product, works fine.
I had a small issue with product as I swapped my regular HGST 1TB HDD to the optical unit, which went to wrong configuration in bios. Because of that I was unable to get the drive recognized. This silly thing I didn't noticed or in simple word I can say I was quite ignorant to it and tried every other thing. I finally make an inquiry with the Dahsha people. I soon got call from Mr. Sunil Patel, who helped me and finally suggested me to replace.

I got a replacement and the same problem I faced, then I figured it out as ITS MY DEVICE MANAGER'S MISTAKE, I then uninstalled the drivers associated with IDE unit and it worked.

I'm very much impressed and thankful to Mr. Sunil Patel, who called me every time and didn't get irritated. He has taken out feedback from me

I had to remove the SATA interface and install it in the Lenovo caddy (involved some cutting/installation).
However, this should work for most laptops out of the box.
Unfortunately, this didn't sit directly with my Lenovo laptop. The reason was that the edge isn't curved, and the newer laptops have a curved side. Apart from that, no issues with the actual product.
Once installed, I'm getting a huge increase in OS speed because of the additional SSD installed in this caddy.

In my dell inspiron 1545, the original HDD is a little thicker then this product. When I slot in this new hard drive, it could not detect at first and I almost got panic. Adding a thin film of plywood/cupboard material for the little extra space is all it takes to make it work.

I bought this drive for using my old sata hard discs lying around after my old PC had become non-functional.

USB 2.0 speed is good for most work .No need to go for USB 3.0 version from other companies and pay more than the double price for usb 3.0 DRIVE.
The cover is of sliding type which is movable from left to right vice versa.
The SATA HDD sits tightly in the lower casing without any free movement or vibration.
Close the drive by sliding the top door and you are done ..it is ready for action.
Connect the power supply(12 volt DC adapter supplied along with USB cable to connect the drive to your PC/Laptop)
There are LED indicators on the top of the case to indicate power and functioning og the drive.
On the back side of the drive there is r on/off power switch too.

The DC adapter is having power plug-in

I am really happy with HDD Casing. I was wondering about the negative feedback from lof of buyers. But in my case I received a good casing it was perfectly working condition on my Seagate HDD 3.5" it was working good as external drive on PC and Mac. Casing Build quality was very good. This casing should be work with extra power adapter it was supplied on the box. I hope we can't use this casing with only the USB power source. Anyway Nice Building quality Hardisk was fitting perfectly. Thanks to Seller and Amazon for providing the good quality product. Product delivered in good condition without any damage Packaging was good.

Before buying this product to be honest I was bit skeptical for the negative reviews so i enquired first with Amazon whether I can return the product if there will be some problem, After the confirmation I bought it, What I received looked bit over priced as this was a low quality plastic box with a SATA port and a switch where you can connect your Hard Disk and work or get your data. Problem was it hanged my Gaming Desktp PC every time I connected it, for some unknown reason, so I couldn't copy the big files then I connected my old Dell Laptop and it worked but slowed it down many folds, like moving the mouse pointer was almost impossible, so used key board and copied some files and that worked for me. Though the thing works but it definitely got some problem. Only buy if u desperately

I was unable to add the clamp screw to the Lenovo laptop, as the hole size did not
match-up. There is a gap, that I will one ay close, so its not pretty to look at.
However electrically the drive is hooked up and working. The material of the
caddy looks flimsy. However since its plugged in, and may not be removed, it
may last a while.

This is Seagate barracuda 7 mm 2.5” hard disk. Worth for money and easy to install. I bought it for 2999.the data processing speed is really good and give a new life to my Acer Aspire 4743. A little expensive compare to other models but the speed is really good.just go for it.
This is day one review. Let’s see how it’s going to work on coming days.

I am disappointed with product package. This product is not shock free. Any medium shock may affect the life of HDD. Amazon have to consider to pack with bubble pack. I had received the product in a polythene cover.

Hi, I have got one and it corrupted my hard disk. I have tried all the switches present. So I have contacted seller by Amazon email and they have contacted me by Mobile. They agreed to provide a replacement unit and it arrived after three days. I have no hope this would work. But, this works just like that. I didn't even selected the HDD in disk manager. It was visible in my computer.

Now I have a Samsung 860 Evo as my primary storage and my 1 tb HDD as secondary storage. Speed is insane. My system boots in just 3 secs and no problem with the caddy

Received in sealed condition without any damage. Hence, must appreciate the packaging of seller. This SATA III hard disk is no doubt good, thinner and faster among available brands. Barracuda series is actually intended for daily use as primary hard disk hence optimized by Seagate accordingly, yet I'm using it as secondary storage device. This 2TB capacity actually gives about 1.86GB which is quite normal in industry standard. Overall it is a good purchase.

First of all these drives are shipped with almost no packaging or cushioning by cloudtail. The drive had damaged sectors and all file read/write operations slowed down to a crawl. All this happened just 2 days outside the return/replace window. So Amazon refused to help out. At this point I have nothing good to say about their return policy, especially with regards to a high end product like this. The windows are too rigid, especially since this is an item that you would just install in your desktop PC and forget. So the chance that the item got damaged by user handling is very low, and it is more likely that the piece was defective to begin with.

For anyone considering buying this, I'll say this:

1. Think twice.
2. Once bought do put it through performance checks and benchmark it within the return window.

At this point I'm trying to get in touch

Outstanding performance! I purchased it as a backup HDD for use in an external USB 3.0 casing (Quantum Zero). Originally I had planned to buy the WD 2TB Black variant, but since I did not need extreme speed, I ordered this Blue variant and saved some money. Imagine my surprise when I saw the Real Life performance. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw 125 - 130 MB/sec nearly constant copying speed from my Samsung 850 Pro SATA III 256 GB SSD to this WD Blue HDD (equivalent to writing speed on this HDD) for 3 video files 1.5 to 2.5 GB each! Just to see what would be the equivalent writing speed of this HDD, I reversed the process, i.e., copied the same three video file from this HDD to a new folder on my Samsung 850 Pro. You may not believe me, but that speed held all

This drive is 5400 RPM drive. So don't expect extreme speeds. It's good for basic computing (Not ideal for games, media editing, audio recording etc.). It is always recommended to install Windows 10 on a 7200 RPM HDD. However, if you combine this with a faster drive or a SSD then it can be used as a good backup drive.
