  • Summary: I loaded it up with a couple hundred gigs and stuck it on a shelf. 6 months later I plug it in and nothing happens. The good people of WD did nothing and basically told me it was my problem. I will never buy another WD again.

Don't waste your money

7ButterfliesMedia, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this hard drive for a class project that required us to bring an external drive. I barely used 8GB and 10 weeks into the class, the hard drive fried...as in you could smell the fried components inside.

Do Not Waste Your Money On WD Drives

Eddie S, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: This is my second Western Digital external hard drive. I had it for approximately two years, before it recently died on me. My previous unit also lasted about two years. The scenarios are all the same..

Worthless

Amy Marzluff, Amazon
30 March 2012
  • Summary: I have never been more frustrated with a piece of technology than with this hard drive. It worked okay out of the box then would randomly not start up. Restarting the computer a few times would usually do the trick. When I got a new computer I stored all my pictures on the WD My Book.

Looks cool -- otherwise, terrible.

TexRex96, Amazon
10 February 2011
  • Summary: I thought an external hard drive would be easy. I just wanted it to schedule regular back-ups reliably, that's all. In short, this boss-looking drive physically failed after 18 months (my Mac stopped recognizing it, the power button failed, and the drive began making clicking noises).

Not reliable

Kevin Septor, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: This model is a turkey. I wish I would have run the "My Book Home Firmware Update" available from Western Digital on their website sometime before mine decided to die.

Do Not Buy!

James T. Spelman, Amazon
23 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought three of these; two have failed due to power supply issues. I will take the drives out, install in another enclosure in order to (hopefully) retrieve data. After that: land fill.

Avoid MyBook external storage - UNRELIABLE

Cap'n Doc "jFarkas", Amazon
23 September 2010
  • Summary: The MyBook Home Edition 1TB is an unreliable product. After using mine for about a year as a convenient backup device, it just quit working. Of course it is out of warranty, and of course I have tons of vacation pictures, dissertation documentation, and whitepapers stored on it.

Worked fine until it croaked. 10 Month lifespan.

B. Meek, Amazon
12 August 2009
  • Summary: Worked fine for 10 months as a backup drive before it croaked. Good news: I have a Mac, and was only using it for Timemachine backups, so the primary data was still available when this one went belly-up with write errors. I tried to reformat it, and it failed in mid-format.
