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: New development since I wrote review. There's a power on/off button on the back, which is always handy. But it's only handy when it works. I barely got it turned back on and doubt I'll be trying that again! I've a case in at Western Digital asking about the problem. Waiting to see what they have to say.
Summary: So far, the drive has been working very well, as far as I can tell, but if you are using a Mac,DON'T install the software, just use Time Machine. The WD software kept putting the drive to sleep whenever my Mac Mini went to sleep, and required a manual wake-up each time. It took 5 phone calls to WD Tech Support, the last three to Level 2 techs to correct the problem. At the suggestion of friends I reformatted and erased the drive twice.
