would never buy anthoer WD product
31 January 2014
Summary: have had issue with this from the beginning. I have an iMac and it has been a problem with this drive being found and finally it just stopped seeing it after an upgrade. really stinks. never get WD if you have a mac.
Summary: Have had this for a while now. It works well with Time machine. I have another partition on that to store my RAW photos, music etc. Haven't had a problem with it. The firewire 800 connection is great for quick transfers, although USB 3 is probably a better bet now.
Summary: great for deep storing, or backing up of files. good price. not the fastest drive and it takes a few seconds for the unit to be recognized on my mac pro tower. recommended for anyone wanting to back up a lot of files.
Summary: Works well, though not as fast as I expected in 2013. Also, who wants a new drive with the old USB 2.0 spec? If I wanted USB 2.0, I would have bought a used or refurbished drive.The display is unreadable. It might be useful if it could be seen from a distance greater than 6 inches.
Summary: This is a great external backup drive that automatically updates. Just leave it connected to your computer and your data is safely stored without you having to think about manually backing up. Extremely satisfied with this inexpensive purchase.
Summary: (I only gave it one star because I had to) It melted down less than a year into owning it. THANK GOODNESS I was able to recover my files before it quit completely. I tried to get the seller to take it back but never heard a thing from THE PRICE PROS. Don't waste your time.
Summary: I don't know much about computers but a friend of mine does. He recommended this device as an external hard drive to back up my computer whenever I have problems and need to reboot without losing any files. It is just what the doctor ordered!
Summary: I chose this product because of Western Digital great name and customer review's, price and design quality. So far to date it works but I have lots of problem with setting up the screen. Word of advise (DON'T PURCHASE THAT HARD DRIVE).
