Summary: For me 500GB's is truly appropiate storage space. I've had 40 plus movies and numerous programs on my system(s) and so far I have never exceeded nore than a quarter of my hard drives space. For $57.00 this is an excellant buy for Plenty of storage and/or more than enough storage space.
Summary: I've only had this Western Digital internal hard drive for about a week, but so far it seems to be working as normal. The version I got was a so-called OEM, which is the commonly (mis)-used term for bulk packaged. Meaning no box, no instructions, no SATA cable. But since I've had previous hard drives from Western Digital, this wasn't really a problem. For the price this is a lot of storage capacity.
Excerpt: First let me start by saying I have two of these external hard drives (EHD). I like the drive itself, but have had problems connecting it. I read other reviews and people complained about not being able to connect. I had no problems initially and thought they were just doing something wrong. Nope. Read for more details. I had one at my previous home that had a network. I plugged it in and it worked like a charm.
Pros: Lots of storage on a network drive . Fast .
Cons: Quirky connection . Might connect and might not .
Excerpt: Beautiful to look at (even if you don't like the Mac aesthetic) and quiet enough for use in the living room - so long as you don't put it direct onto a hard surface. If you have money to burn you could buy a load of these and create a very interesting 'book' case. OK, the big question: does it do what it says on the tin? Mostly yes.
Pros: Cheap for a NAS . Looks good in the living room .
Cons: Sells it with remote access but the access is limited .
