Summary: The software they had given for backing up files was taking all of RAM memory even the drive is not connected. While taking backup, it was too slow and took hell a lot time. And atleast using it as any other USB drive was ok for few days and after that even that has become slow.
Summary: Up until now, I've liked Western Digital products. But after this, I'm not going to buy any more--Seagate or another company will be getting my business. I bought the Essential SE 750GB, expecting to have well over 700GB of space.
Cons: WD puts software on here and shoves it down your throat. They give you the option to disable it but not remove it. Had always bought WD UNTIL NOW! Found HP USB drive format util that got rid of it.
Summary: Yes, really, I'm just going to throw it out in the garbage, no joke, I don't want it in my collection of ext. HD's I'd give "0" eggs if I could. Could you tell I'm hot under the collar... You will be too. Don't listen to these people that are like....
Cons: This whole SES driver and VCD thing and not being able to remove it and having to install drivers to stop pop-ups........ Arrgh... I buy a lot of portable HD's and this will be my last WDC. Man just what we need is more "BLOATWARE" I move my ext HD's to many machine and now I have to install a dr...
Pros: Heee, price versus the other brands. But a month later, you understand why. See cons
Cons: The small to beggin with. Useless If thats not all, the hard drive died with in 2 months. This is the second time I get this same model, and the same thing happens. Really, avoid this hard drive at all costs.
Summary: TOTAL JOKE! Never WD again! And by joke I don't mean a funny joke. I mean the joke that everyone falls asleep to. Then they wake up and the joke is still going on, and now they're mad because this whole time they thought the joke was a dream.

Summary: This worked when I first plugged it in after trying several USB ports, then never worked again. The drive doesn't even show up under windows explorer. I tried to find a driver online, but there wasn't one.
Summary: I hoped WD had gotten better. It appears that I was wrong.
Pros: Cheap, decent soft case ships with the product (at least mine had it)
Cons: Cheap. Proprietary cable. Pre-installed software can be disabled but cannot be removed, meaning you don't get quite the space you paid for. WORSE: the thing died on me less than a month in; I have already RMA'd it. I stopped buying WD disks in the mid-90s after being burned a couple times. Why, o...
