A bit noisy but good value for money if you're not running it 24/7
1 August 2011
Summary: I love my MyBooks and have 9 of them, as well as a couple iomegas and a Lacie so this was a bit of a risk. It looks OK, works fine on my MacBook Pro but is noisier than I like. So- good price, cannot complain about THAT. Noisier than my others. As for life-span- I cannot say.
Summary: As far as storage goes, this hard drive does exactly what it says it will do. 1Tb of storage, simple plug & play set up, no problems there. What is a major problem is the cabling/power unit provided.
Setup Instructions and (missing) Utilities Inadequate

Summary: My rating of 3 is due to the following: 1) The instruction manual is close to useless. a) While in its original state (i.e. BIG setting) I plugged it into my computer (a good quad core Dell running Win7) and, as expected, the drive showed up in `Windows Explorer'.
Summary: I've owned many external hard disk drives over the years (Seagate, LaCie, Iomega, Medion, Western Digital, etc.) I have just one complaint about the Verbatim product (I own two of them). The troublesome power switch on the back of the drive - unique in design to this make of HDD.
Summary: Like most looking for a reliable Desktop HDD for backup and storage of precious digital content (iTunes, Documents etc) - I did some research and Verbatim 1TB came onto the radar. I have owned my 1TB for 4 days and have decided to return it.
Summary: The drive itself works fine but it's shallow button has problems on my unit. It sometimes gets stuck when switching on/off. On a couple of occasions I've turned off the drive - only to find it later on turns itself back on when the button unsticks itself.
Summary: Verbatim 1TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive Excellent delivery and packaging and works fine. However, one reason I selected this drive was because it came with Nero back-up software, but this refused to install unless I updated or uninstalled Nero Essentials 7, neither of which I wanted to do...

Summary: Die HD ist ok. Blöd ist nur, der veraltete USB-Standard. Bei großen zu kopierenden Datenmengen merkt man sehr schnellt, dass die ganze Sache dauert und dauert und dauert. Ansonsten ist alles ok. Leider gibt es die gleiche Kapazität zum selben PReis auch mit dem aktuellen USB-Standard.
