I love WD!

  • Summary: Works as I intended and holds tons of data. Not so fast for video though but beats 2.0! Quiet. Good design and construction. Included utilities add to the overall value.

DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE A MAC - goes to sleep unexpectedly when used with Mac

DK, Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: This issue has been commented on by others. The drive enters an energy saving sleep mode and unmounts from the computer, prompting an error from OSX regarding the need to properly eject a disk first before unmounting. Unfortunately, I didn't see those reviews until after I started using this drive with my new 2013 model year Mac running Maveriks. From what I've read online, there's apparently no clear understanding why it occurs, much less a reliable solution.

It didn't last a year

holyfool, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: Got myself a brand new iMAC 27" / 32gb / 2TB HD and got two external drives. One for the time machine, Touro 4TB and WD My Book Studio USB 3.0 3TB Desktop Storage for Mac for storage. The WD 3TB started to give me problems, making funny noises. Paid $50 to get it fix, it didn't work too well. The MAC kept saying it could not be formatted.

Seamless

  • Summary: Simple and reliable. My Book install involved connecting it to power and the USB between the My Book and my computer. Set up via Time Machine took about two minutes and it is running quietly ever more. It is the perfect choice.

My Book Studio External Hard drive

Captain Video, B&H Photo
27 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Was looking for a "firewire" drive because I wanted maximum transfer speed of video data I want to store for later editing. Unfortuantely, WD no longer makes a firewire drive and has replaced it with this USB 3.0 version. Performance of this unit has been just fine.
  • Pros: Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable

Very Nice Product

JohnC1, B&H Photo
28 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this hard drive as a backup drive and it does the job admirably. It is quiet and fast, and with USB 3.0 My backup times are half what they used to be using FireWire. I bought the 3 TB version for [$], and that is a lot of storage for the price. Plugged it in and it worked right away. I have bought a second drive and I rotate so that I have an offsite backup.
