It hogs your computer memory and makes your fan run at top speed

Summary: It's pretty amazing to get a terabyte of storage in a form factor the size of a cigarette case. However, this product also comes with an executable called WDFME.exe that gets into your computer and hogs a big piece of your memory.
Summary: When inserting it into a USB 3.0 plug, it will mount, dismount, mount, and you guessed it...dismount again. Rendering you unable to transfer any of your files over. IF you want USB 2.0 compatibility, go for it. - That appears to work most of the time.
Summary: I purchased this to back up my new laptop which has plenty of RAM and storage with both a 2.0 and 3.0 USB port. It works fine if you back up small files, but each time I attempt to back up anything over 3 or 4 GB, the drive locks up and I get an error message.
Summary: I bought this several months ago, and had been using it on my Ubuntu machine. Recently, I wanted to use it on my windows machine, and plugged it in. The HDD was formatted in Linux, but often, I have no problem detecting external drives from my windows machine (windows 7).
Summary: So i was pretty excited about the size of this hard drive. there were no problems til about a few days ago when everything just disappeared. took it down to a local computer tech.. turns out the drive was already out. here i was with 880 gbs of videos and pictures and documents!
Pros: It has 1 TB of space. Excellent for doing full back ups, system images, storing pictures, videos, music files...
Cons: I bought this to run VMWare virtual operating systems without having to put them on my physical hard drive. This is not near fast enough to run a virtual operating system on, much less 3 or 4 at once. There seems to be an issue with the adaptability from the native USB 3.0 to the USB 2.0 as well....
