Failed five days after expiration of return eligibility
7 April 2014
Summary: The drive worked fine for just over 30 days, then failed to power up. Power supply checks out OK so the problem is with the interface electronics or in the drive itself. Looking for other warranty information...
Summary: Working fine with Time Machine. No errors. I have 2 Seagates that failed after just a few months. Seems like WD is the way to go these days. Nice case - looks good, but I hide it under my desk. Figure that if someone steals my iMac, they might miss my back up drive and I won't be completely screwed.
Summary: This is a great product. Tons of storage and works great with Mac. It works with older Mac models as well; I used this on an early 2008 Air, running 10.5 and it worked perfectly. Build is also, very sturdy and well made. For any interested persons, it can be formatted to work with PC's as well. All it takes is to connect this to a PC computer and setup a new partition. Then you choose to use the exFAT file system. I did that and now it works with both Macs and PC's.
Summary: WOW I have never had any issues with WD before, now before you go much further you should know I absolutely recognize that this is my fault- BUT there is something I found out through the process that made me so upset with WD. Apparently when you buy these drives- many of them come "Green" as power-saving. You can't possibly know which ones will come green and which ones don't. WD does "Green" drives to save them money.
