Great product, does what I need it for

Justin, Amazon

  • Summary: This product is great for the price and storing my information , music that i use for my iMac. Was told by a friend how great he liked it and would definitely buy another when the need arises. Functions great, quiet running, and can be tucked out of the way.

I hate buying external drives

Shaun, Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: If I can figure out why sometimes it shuts down or unmounts from the desktop, I'll up the rating, but in the end, I'm more interested in it actually not failing in the first 18 months. Then I'll feel like I got my $$ worth. Tired of buying new external storage devices.

For sooth, a RAID 1 device for under $400 and 3TB of reliable storage? Speak not of false things!

  • Summary: I had planned on writing something much more Shakespearian in style (hence the title), but I 1. haven't had enough coffee this morning to write something good 2. frankly, I don't think I could write something good 3. I'm feeling rather meta today so....

Peace of Mind

  • Summary: I finally ran out of space on my Mac Mini and was looking for a place to store a few years worth of files and home movies etc. I'm running this drive mirrored for safety in that this is one of two places I keep a copy of these files. So far its a nice fast drive using Firewire 800.

Good Drive, but Took Some Work

Ricker, Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: Plenty of reviews, so I'll be short. Purchased the Studio II 6GB to back up a 2009 Mac running OS 10.8. I had a 1TB hard drive that recently failed (thank you Apple for the recall notice, but about 2 months too late for my particular machine).

You can use this on a Mac out of the box. No need to install the supplied software.

Adam Lawton, Amazon

  • Summary: I just received this and these are my initial impressions based on the latest versions of OSX 10.7 and 10.8. Pros: - Works out of the box as a 6TB external drive. Cons: - Large-ish power brick.

USB 3 would be better.

Lars, Amazon
2 September 2012
  • Summary: For the price, it should be included.The build quality could be better. Otherwise it is fast and kind of nice to look at. Great for backing up NAS.

Work horse drive for video production at the right price

Jack G, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: We use these exclusively with Macs. These drives are reliable, fast, and affordable. 6 TB seems like a lot but for video production, it was just enough room for high volume projects that needed the flexibility of an external enclosure.

Product works but not so Mac Friendly

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 June 2012
  • Summary: The WD Manager tool does not properly start on Mac OS Lion. I tried downloading the latest version from the Western Digital website and still no luck. After searching online, I noticed quite a few threads discussing this issue and the same problem existed for others.
