This 2TB drive is 15mms high, which is 2.5mm taller than a standard "fat" drive these days. It only fits in the standard location (not the DVD bay), and only fits WITHOUT the mounting pegs. It's important you choose this specific drive, as there are others with non standard Sata connectors - for instance you can not buy the external 2.5" 2TB Western Digital Essentials drive, as it has the USB interface directly on the drive PCB, so there is no way to put that into your computer. For a full explanation with photos, see this page:[...]"

I've been using these since Sept. 2012 and they do what they are supposed to.

They are 15.0mm thick and made for use in specialized drive racks. They can also be fitted in a desktop computer's 3.5 inch bay or 5.25 inch bay using adapter brackets, or better yet, the aforementioned specialized racks.

They won't fit in the average notebook computer's hard drive bay (which is usually a 9.5mm height bay), and they definitely won't fit in an Ultrabook computer's bay.

I'm using them in desktop computers. I use Enhance Technology Model Q14SS and Model X14 'Quadrapack' racks to get 4 drives into a single 5.25in bay.

That's 8GB of drive capacity in a single 5.25 bay! Very high density!

I've been doing this with 1.5TB and 2.0TB drives for about 2 years now, in 3 desktop computers. They have been very reliable, cool, and quiet.

I often swap the built in fans on the Quadrapack racks for slower running and quieter fans. As long as you don't run 10K or 15K RPM drives, this works fine.

The 2.0TB drives run at 5K RPM, so they are perfect for this application.

This is a great product. It is listed as not being able to be used in laptops due to its thickness. Regular laptop drives are at most 9.4mm thick where as this one is about 15mm thick. SImple size calculations will tell you it will not fit. I purchased this drive for my playstation 4 for additional space. I noticed the 500GB hard drive of the PS4 ran out too quickly when you are forced to install every game, so i wanted the largest drive possible. WARNING: This drive will not fit in the cage of your PS4. i tested this and had to force the drive in in order to get it to connect. Even though it would connect once i put in a DVD the DVD started making all sorts of noises due to the plastic having expanded. so i removed the drive. My only option as of this point (i really wanted 2TB of space) was to remove the drive cage. I took a pair of wire cutters and cut out the drive cage of the PS4. WARNING: This will invalidate your warranty with Sony. However, after having removed the drive cage, i popped in the drive and closed the chassis. Chassis was still a little hard to close but you can get it to fit without breaking. The reasons a tight fitting chassis is good is to maintain the drive in place as there will no longer be a screw there. If you want a little more safety i recommend putting some electrical tape at the top of the drive and have it reach to the metal parts of the PS4.

This will also increase the speed of the PS4 as this drive is faster than the original 5400RPM drive in the PS4.

If you do not know how to flash the PS4 firmware on a new drive visit this link: http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps4/new-install/index.htm#installationSteps

Size you will have available after formatting and software is approx. 1.7TB

I DO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU BREAK YOUR PS4 FOLLOWING THIS PROCEDURE. THIS IS A SIMPLE HELPFUL REVIEW TO THOSE WHO WANT MORE SIZE OUT OF THEIR PS4.

Had the drive for a couple days now installed in a server. I bought it because of the capacity and low power profile. According to WD it uses 0.8 watts at idle and 1.7 watts during read/write. This is about 1/10 of the power used by the older 3.5" Seagate 750GB drive it is replacing.

I'm giving the drive 5 stars because it's surprisingly fast. Sustained read/write speeds of 110MB/s copying large files. Pretty nice for a small green drive.

Just barely fit in my mid 2010 17" MacBook Pro. Works great. I had completely filled my 1TB with family photos and videos I needed to upgrade or go external. This was the trick. No room for anything bigger. I couldn't secure it with the anti-shock brackets but its squished in there so tight it's not going anywhere. If you need more space this could be the trick. I won't even comment on speed vs my other WD drive because right now as I write this review, this is the only 2 TB mobile option from WD. It's fast enough considering I have 1.1 TB loaded on it. It gets the job done.

I found myself running out of space on my MacBook Pro. I had a 512 SSD for my OS and a 1TB drive in a DVD HD Caddy. Between my iTunes files and a W7 install the 1TB was running out of space fast.

This drive seemed to be what I needed. At the time of this writting it is the largest 2.5" hard drive within the budget of most people.

If you have a MacBook Pro this HD will fit (in the unibody versions). It will NOT fit in a DVD HD caddy since this drive is too thick. It will only fit in your normal HD slot. If you are running two hard drives this won't be an issue. Simply move your OS hard drive to your DVD caddy and put this drive in your normal slot. When I did this no additional maintenance was needed. I also did not notice any real impact on speed from having my SSD in the DVD caddy.

The speed of this drive is nothing to write home about. It does suck up less power than a faster non-ssd drive. After a month of abuse I haven't run into any issues with the drive.

Overall if you really need a big bump in internal storage for you laptop this could fit the bill. For the price you really can't beat it.
