Misleading Title of This Product

Moaz Bambi, Amazon
22 May 2014
  • Summary: I've bought this product a while back, and I've used it primarily for backup. Today, I wanted to backup 320GB of data. I started backing up, and due to the big bulk of data I'm backing up, I started noting the data transfer speed! These are USB 2.0 speeds not 3.0. I looked up the listing here, it clearly indicates USB 3.0 everytime they have the chance. But my data speeds were only about ~30MB/s which is USB 2.0.

Hard drive failing after 1 year of sporadic use

Nimajneb, Amazon
13 April 2014
  • Summary: Half of the drive is partitioned for PC and the other half for Mac. The Mac side keeps getting corrupted...like every 2 months. Fortunately Disk Utility has been able to fix it every time but I'm not optimistic. Time for a new back up drive.

"Bad drive. Do not trust since I lost the data"

Tommie17, CNET
14 March 2014
  • Pros: It was a good deal for a 1.5TB drive
  • Cons: The drive went berserk after couple of years. The data was present, but could not read out of it. It made me to format the drive and the formatting process took a week. Then again I was able to use the drive to write data into it, but could not read

Nope.

justin greene, Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had this drive for somewhere between a year or two. This drive never gave any trouble and worked properly the whole time. One day I went to plug it into my computer and it refuses to be recognized. It will no longer turn on. I plug it in, light comes on, the insides spin for a couple seconds and then the light goes off and nothing happens.

Awful.

Zoey J. Stretcher, Amazon

  • Summary: This product is completely fragile and not worth the money. Spend the extra cash on the ones that don't break, or you will lightly tap it at some point and lose ALL of your information.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Gene, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the 1TB in late 2011 for use as a data backup device. It was only used a handful of times to transfer data and was never left on for extended periods of time. All of a sudden, my computer stop recognizing the device and the little light on it just flashes, signaling a serious hardware failure. I have since lost all my data including all my personal photographs and a decade of music and movie downloads. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT.

These are the ones you want, not the Western Digitals

IT_Architect "IT_Architect", Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: These are the ones you want, not the Western Digitals. I own an IT company and we buy these for customers to have them do backups of their local workstations and to take with them. We purchased the Western Digitals too, but they come with fancy capabilities that had to be disabled by downloading some software to do it before they would be compatible with the backup software. When I buy a drive, all I want is a drive, not some special ROMs inside that need to be disabled.
