Horrible product if you try to connect mini usb multiple times.

Blake Voshell, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: This is my first amazon review, however I felt like I had to warn people about this product: This is the worst back-up I have ever had the misfortune of owning. As in my uploaded image, the solder on board does not hold for multiple 'plug and unplug' uses. Do not trust this book to work for long if you intend to use it on multiple computers to bring files from one place to another.

2nd WD My Book Elite to fail & 3rd of 3 WD Backup Devices to fail

B. L. Armstrong, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • Summary: Relied on this replacement `My Book Elite 1.5TB` device sent by Western Digital as a replacement when the previous, new WD My Book Elite backup 1.5TB drive failed after 10 days from purchase! Three new Western Digital backup drives that I purchased failed under warranty. While Western Digital will replace the broken drives with a refurbished device, they can only apologize with a solid "SORRY, CHARLIE!

Worst HD ever!!

Dave630, Amazon

  • Summary: Okay if you want to have a false sense of security and have this drive malfunction not even 2 years after you bought it and only used half the space then this is the drive for you. I am now faced with the daunting task of trying to recover my valuable files from this "dead" WD My book drive. An unbelievable nightmare! Stay away!

My Super Vault

Organic Taco, Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: The packaging and this product looks amazing. The speeds for 2.0 are good (I have no complaints, but if you want super fast speeds look for USB 3.0 drives). I don't have anything bad to say about this product, so this review isn't too helpful. I will say though that it has never stalled on me, it has always worked, and there are no glitches. It is reliable and dependable and that is what I want and need.

Hardware Data Encryption and a Broken USB port

Pat, Amazon
22 November 2011
  • Summary: I used this hard drive for six months and the USB port broke internally. It didn't fall, it didn't get any rough treatment, it just sat on my desk for six months. I unplugged it at the end of the day after a backup and "snap". The USB port had broken inside of the enclosure. I tried to send it to WD to get it fixed, and I was offered a replacement w/ none of my data. Long story short, I have now lost over 10 years of designs, photos & video projects.

Western Digital My Book Elite not compatable with WD 2GO

George L. Mardre, Amazon
4 November 2011
  • Summary: I bot this thinking I could access it remotely with my iphone. You can't. Seagate does have an iphone app. gm Edit: I ended up using this drive with my Tonido Plug. You can Google it and see how it works. The drive works fine. It starts spinning up whenever I need access to it. But I also went back to the store and bot a "My Book Live" external HD from Western Digital. This bad boy does act as as a home cloud storage device. Real easy to sey up and load stuff onto it.
