Too much $$ to not include a cable

Misc, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • 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

I hated it

Robert Knobf, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Got one. it didn't work. Sent it back. Got another. It didn't work either. I guess you have to work some kind of magic.I wanted a good high capacity back up that i could plug in and use. This is not it. I wish I could rate it lower than one.

Sad

VASC, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • 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.

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

Wrathwilde, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • 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.

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!!!

Rebuild a drive in RAID 1 takes > 2 days !

Oliver Werther, Amazon
29 July 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).
