Hople, B&H Photo
23 October 2015
  • Excerpt: The computer could not find it at all. Tried a return and new device -- same problem. B&H refunded with no problem as they are so good about, but this may not work with your Mac. Manufacturer couldn't tell me why.

Bad drive, out of the box

Mark, Amazon
24 July 2015
  • Summary: I purchased the drive to work my iMac. It was very easy to connect the drive. The drive is configured for RAID 0 by default. The instructions for changing to the RAID 1 configuration were very easy.

ESATA DOA

Jesse, Amazon
7 February 2013
  • Summary: Drive seemed to work over USB. ESATA was dead. I called WD and they offered to replace the drive but I did not want the hassle if they are shipping defective enclosures. I returned it to Amazon for a refund and will look elsewhere.

Serious problem

g.d.b, Amazon
23 January 2013
  • Summary: In the first week after buying when used in mirrored mode with a new Mac Book Pro (Retina) it had 2 rebuilds. Each took 18 hours for a 500GB data set. I just got a full replacement. Copied the data over it took only 2 hours (great speed of TB cable). 1 day later degradation and rebuild again!!!

Too much $$ to not include a cable

Misc, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Seriously.... Just ship the cable with it!! Way too much money to not include a simple cable. I had other thunderbolt cables but of course this one would be different

Rebuild a drive in RAID 1 takes > 2 days !

Oliver Werther, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: The drive itself is really quiet. The setup is simple and fast. I use this drive as a backup drive with my MacBook Pro using TimeMachine. I therefore configured the drive for RAID 1 mode, mirroring of data (disks).

A Problem From Day One

Art, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • 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.

Don't let WD fleece you, their own G-RAID 8TB Thunderbolt is a better drive at the same price!!!

Wrathwilde, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: You can currently get the G-RAID 8TB Thunderbolt w/7200rpm drives for $1 less, $789.99. The G-RAID is the high performance line. The WD My Book Thunderbolt uses (2) Hitachi 4TB 5400rpm drives. The G-Tech 8TB Thunderbolt RAID uses (2) Hitachi 4TB 7200rpm drives.

Sad

VASC, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: The 1 star only applies to the fact that it did not meet my needs and I did not feel informed. I like Western Digital. I thought I had researched this product and understood the compatibility. The Apple genius' even agreed... Thunderbolt is not recognized by a non-thunderbolt machine.
