Inexpensive and decent storage

  • Summary: I picked up this 1TB My Book Elite at a local Staples store on "close-out" for $45. Could not resist at that price. I ignored the built-in software and had no problem reformatting it to the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format for my Intel Mac.

  • Summary: 1 day after transferring all of the files I wanted, the drive was unreadable, so I had to reformat it. Then I spend the next 18 hour copying the 480 GB of files again. Since then it ha been working with no problems.

  • Summary: I just want this drive to store things, like movies and pictures. I don't really want it for backing things up automatically. Because of this, I didn't play around with the settings for backing up files. I also read the reviews about the software and didn't want to deal with any problems.

  • Summary: Super-easy to set up and get moving, the My Book Elite 2TB hard-drive should be enough to keep the average home-user going. Well designed, no nonsense packaging (which might seem like a bizarre thing to reference, but it does make a difference in our eco-friendly times; especially when you see how...

Good, but not as advertised.

  • Summary: I see amazon has changed the description of this product as it was originally sold as "Western Digital My Book Elite Edition 2.0TB USB 2.0, Firewire 400 and Esata External Desktop Hard Drive".
