Working great so far, this is a vast improvement over my previous WD 2TB My Book Studio, which crashed and lost most of my data,

  • Summary: Working great so far, this is a vast improvement over my previous WD 2TB My Book Studio, which crashed and lost most of my data, and was never truly Mac friendly, even though it had firewire, the utility packages on the WD site where mostly geared to windows.

  • Summary: right voltage, amps & price! Fast shipping, no complaints. The color is black and it works on household AC current. Not sure what else to say.

efficient but bulky

  • Summary: This is a great hard-drive for people working with video because it has a lot of memory. However, it is hard to carry around because it's very big.

  • Summary: Everything seems fine. The unit is quiet, I cannot tell it is on until the disk shows up on my desk top. Fits perfect with my MacBook Pro using Time Machine.

  • Summary: Easy set-up.Using FireWire connections with my iMac. Speed is extremely fast and WD reliability still seems to beat Seagate BUT The Seagate is less expensive.

Great backup drive so far

James A. Cahill "jim8151", Amazon

  • Summary: I've only had this drive for about two months, but so far so good. I'm using it on an iMac running Mountain Lion, and it is connected via Firewire 800. It is very quiet (passive cooling, no fan), and so far hasn't shown any signs of overheating despite what a few other reviewers have said. In general, Western Digital drives have been very good performers for me over the last 5 years or so.

So far so good

A guy who buys stuff, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: Using with my Mac Mini for photo and music storage, and scratch space for Photoshop. Not the cheapest, but it's certainly fast. WD Smartware can be somewhat annoying, and I had a bit of work to do to get the software to install. It's light-years better than the Seagate drives I've used previously.

Does anyone know how to tell if this drive is a WD green or a WD black?

Jack Kessler "An Unimpeachable Source", Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I just got this thing. I plugged it in to the power and to the Firewire 800 port in the back of the iMac. The computer recognized it immediately and recognized that it has 3 TB. It is, as others have said, silent. So far so good. I am hoping that if it fails, it will have the decent manners to fail within the return period. BUT I don't know if the drive inside the box is a WD 3tb Green drive or a 3tb Black drive.

Working great, so far

  • Summary: I bought it to backup my iMac. So far, I did not have any issues with it and I was able to plug it and backup using Time Machine. Apple had to replace my 1TB HD because they said it might fail (I had extended warranty). The restore went without any problems.

Backup and Storage

Al R. Shipman, Amazon
16 April 2012
  • Summary: Quick delivery of the drive. I am using the drive for storage and backup device. 1TB used for backup of iMac using time Machine, 2TB used mostly for raw photos, data and iTunes library. Setup of the device, reformatting took total of 10-15 minutes. Drive has a little noise vibration that is really not noticeable. Sleek Design and fast. For the money, 3TB of space, this drive is a really great deal.
