Product's Firewire Does NOT Connect to Computer's Firewire
John Brockmann, Amazon
13 January 2015
Summary: VERY disappointed to discover that the Firewire 6-pin female connections (there are even two of them) on the back of the product would NOT link up with Firewire 6-pin female connections on my computer--using, of course a male-ended 6-pin cable.
Summary: I added two more 3T drives. The LCD window on this is stupid and DOES NOT WORK OR DO ANYTHING OF VALUE. I wish my drive name appeared so that when lined up I know which drive has "what data". They knew it was dumb too - because the new versions (my 3T versions) have no LCD. All have performed well.
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: The order was fulfilled by 'The-Edeals' and arrived damaged out of the box. It appears the unit was dropped or thrown, and the internal chassis was shifted from the external shell. The power button was depressed and stuck under the case, and remaining ports were not aligned with the openings.
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.
