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: I bought this as an add-on expansion drive for my DVR and got about 2½ years of faithful service out of it. However, when it died I lost all the shows and movies that were on it. Good price/performance ratio, just remember that all hard drives eventually fail.
Summary: These are rotten drives! They are cheap WDEARS-type Green HDDs that are prone to failure early, even worse, the SmartWave software ranges from intrusive to downright evil. There is also a chip on the USB to SATA converter that makes it impossible for one to save their data, if they choose to make it internal. There are better buys, better values, and less headaches with virtually any other product. The practices here are downright despicable and lawsuit-worthy. AVOID.
