Excerpt: The My Book Home is the latest external hard drive from Western Digital. It has most of the regular features of an external hard drive. A triple interface for maximum connectivity, so that you can connect it to a Mac or PC, as well as an eSATA interface.
Summary: Having owned about two dozen WD drives in the last decade, this is the first to give the impression of an inferior product. Flaky connections necessitating constant resets, wildly variable transfer speeds, ghost drives, software of dubious usefulness urging me to pay extra for a subscription. Very disappointed in this drive which turns a simple task into an ordeal, and cannot recommend. Perhaps it's the Hitachi drive they've used under the hood...
Built in software sucks - 5-STAR Drive but Software Killed a Star

Summary: Why the UNREMOVEABLE software - WHY - WHY - WHY !!! People don"t like not being able to remove period I only want this for STORAGE. Not for continuous Back-UP. I will continue to purchase internal WD hard drives for Operating Systems. But next time I need a STORAGE drive....WELL... I think you get the picture. Thank you.
