  • Summary: I bought this as a DVR for our RV DISH satellite system. I performs the recording function well. My only complaint is that it occasionally locks up and has to be unplugged to reboot.

Lots of Connectivity.

  • Summary: This is a desktop external hard drive that houses a 3.5 inch desktop PC HDD. I am not sure of the model, but I have been told that it's a WD Caviar model, probably Green or Black. It is a 7200 RPM unit with a generous cache and good file transfer performance.

ESATA Interface Reliability

Charles E. Richardson "bink", Amazon

  • Summary: I originally bought two units because of the ESATA interface. I wanted to be able to move it easily and get Serial ATA speeds. HOWEVER, I found that where the IEEE 1394 and USB 2 interfaces worked (albeit at less than half the speed from a sata interface), the esata interface did not seem to work...

Good External Drive

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: In my experience this is a good product. Just plug it in (Windows XP) and you have a terabyte to use as you like. It doesn't get much simpler. I can't say much about any included software - I dumped anything that came with the drive as I have had poor experiences in the past.

  • Summary: After reading all the negative reviews, I was a little reluctant about purchasing the drive. However, because of the easy return policy and great price, I decided to take a chance.

Nice Product

  • Summary: I like this hard drive a lot. It works very well with my Mac Powerbook G4, as it's fast, quiet, and reliable. I connect using Firewire, which appears to move files more quickly than USB.

esata is not for everybody

  • Summary: I did not purchase mine thru amazon, but i like to share some of my experience. I just bought WD Home 1T just for the sake of using E-sata. After struggling with random disconnected while transferring big files using e-sata, i started to blame WD and esata cable.
