Will never Buy another WD..

Patricia Murray "trader54", Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: There is an software package you have to install that was a pain! It took up a lot of space and when ejecting the drive it was always a problem. I had to eject and then turn the drive off, an unnecessary step!

Big Step Backwards for My Book

Chris Ogden, Amazon
2 June 2010
  • Summary: As pro photographers, we own dozens of My Book drives. They have been perfect for archiving/delivering client projects. However, in this model, Western Digital took a big step backward. They mysteriously dropped the eSATA port (which was on this model a few months ago).

Think about it...

  • Summary: ...Which is something I did not do. This drive was suggested as a boot drive. It *is not* a boot drive for my early Intel iMac running 10.4.11. I cloned the iMac's internal drive to this WD drive and attempted to boot from it; I wanted to use it for my boot drive--my original internal drive was...

warning: annoying ac adapter

David Hogg, Amazon
11 March 2010
  • Summary: The power supply with this unit is designed such that on a standard power bar, the plug blocks three outlets. If your computer and media area has as many power cords as mine does, this represents a significant problem. Don't buy this without also buying an extra power bar!

software stupidity

Michael Edelstein, Amazon
9 February 2010
  • Summary: Sometimes drive shows up, sometimes not. Lots of fiddling to get it onto desktop. Not my experience with other similar drives, even My Books. Intrusive software, but worse is that the latest firmware update said no drive found, though shown on desktop, moved files there, and will not update it.

Perfectly good hardware, irritating software.

Patrick Alexander, Amazon
26 January 2010
  • Summary: If this drive didn't have smartware on it, I'd have no complaints whatsoever. However, if I'd known about the smartware beforehand, I wouldn't have bought it. I have no interest in using this or any of the other sorts of software that hardware manufacturers have recently decided to inflict on...

  • Summary: I purchased this as it seemed to tick all the boxes for what I need - energy efficient, large capacity network attached storage for streaming music and video to my mac mini htpc. I have all my files and folders already backed up from my PC onto numerous hard drives (I use a PC to manage my library...

Ansatz gut - Dauerhaftigkeit null

Holger Treuer "HBL", Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: Die Festplatte ist in ihrem Gehäuse sehr gut verarbeitet und macht sich sehr gut als optischer Blickfang auf dem Schreibtisch. Die Lese- / Schreibgeschwindigkeit ist Dank Firewire 800 sehr schnell und ich war anfangs wirklich glücklich, solch eine gute Festplatte zu besitzen.

Diese Festplatte braucht Arbeit

Panda, Amazon
23 January 2011
  • Summary: Ich verfasse hier einmal kurz meine Meinung zur Festplatte, die eigentlich gut ist - sogar begeistert, wenn da nicht dieser Western Digital Plastikquatsch um die eigentliche Festplatte drumherum wäre! Meine Festplatte wird unter FW800 am MacBookPro unter 10.6 betrieben.
