A Problem From Day One

Art, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: The internal drive of the My Book was defective and was unable to download it's own software to my computer and causing a problem with the computer sleep/wake mode not allowing the monitor to come on when the computer was turned on. It inactivated the mouse and the keyboard as well. I Called WD customer service and received no solution. The person I spoke to wasn't aware of the software update.

  • Excerpt: Bought for use as a backup drive for a new iMac. Setup was simple and easy. Have had it for just a short time and since its a backup drive I haven't had to do anything other than set it up.

Love It So Far

C. Johnsen, Amazon

  • Summary: Love this external drive. Replaced my frustrating slow and clunky Drobo with this HD set up in RAID and couldn't be happier. Excellent speed, virtually silent fan and aesthetically pleasing to the eye, all in a relatively compact form.

Excellent performance

Paul Conboy, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: Just purchased, wanted to relay that I am getting 271 MB/S write speed and 283 MB/S read speed in RAID 0 configuration (non-mirror setup for maximum capacity and performance) and 137 MB/S write speed and 137 MB/S read speed in RAID 1 configuration (mirror setup for duplication and protection). I will update this review in several months with a follow up on reliability and performance.

Roper Davis, Amazon

  • Summary: With the Thunderbolt connection this unit works as fast as the internal drive. I moved all my movies and photos to this device. Forget USB and Firewire connections. I use them as well but they don't hold a candle to Thunderbolt.

Excellent product, excellent customer service

7d5a9b1, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: I've had this for nearly a year now. It's so fast as to be almost instantaneous, so quiet you forget it's there. For several months, I had what seemed a problem with it: my Macbook would report that my disc was "not ejected properly," then mount it again immediately. I called Western Digital; its customer service department offered to send me a new drive so that I could transfer my data from the old one, and to cover postage for the old one's return.

Blazingly Fast Thunderbolt Drive

Dr. Doug, B&H Photo
1 December 2014
  • Excerpt: The enormous amount of storage (8 TB) is by itself a major reason to own this attractive desktop box, but the speed at which that data can be accessed is extraordinary. I'm in the process of editing and compiling over 50 years of family movies and video; thanks to this new duo by WD, with both Raid 0 and Raid 1 capabilities, I have the speed I need for the most demanding editing tasks, as well as secure storage.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Secure Data Storage
  • Cons: No Onoff Button
