User Review

Moodu, NCIX.com

  • Summary: Overall, very satisfied. Didn't use provided software in drive. Backed up (just in case) and deleted included software. Followed instructions from Amazon.com reviewers to setup clean drive.
  • Pros: Lots of storage., Much faster than USB2.0.
  • Cons: micro-USB connector on box feels filmsy. Afraid it may break. Will be connecting/disconnecting the other USB end instead.

Great Drive!

D. Lamphier, Amazon

  • Summary: We used three of these drives to transfer and store video for use in FinalCutPro. They work great! The Firewire 800 cable is included and it has two ports, so you can loop a number of drives together and transfer file between them.

Nice drive, but auto backup not as customizable as one would like

Debra Hamel, Amazon
30 December 2009
  • Summary: I'm using the My Book Studio external hard drive on a Mac running OS 10.6.2. The setup was simple. The drive comes with three cables--a USB cable, Firewire 800, and Firewire 800 to 400--so you're covered no matter what sort of connection you need. There's one caveat to that, though, which is that the 800 to 400 cable is incredibly short, just a couple inches long. I actually didn't try to use it. I had another 800 to 400 cable I used instead.

Good quality

George Rodger, Amazon
14 May 2013
  • Summary: A good sized 1TB of storage, very well built, good looking, runs quietly and quickly, thanks to USB 3. On the subject of 3s, unfortunately it comes with a US or European 2-pin plug, so you would need to get an adapter. Annoying, but that's only about £1.

Great HDD storage

P. McCauley, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: Overall this HDD drive is a similar size to other existenting external drives, but the silver colour looks quite nice. The drive I received hadnt been formated into a readable drive so I couldn't see it on my PC and had to manually format it to a Letter so it could be seen so I could use it. It comes with a European plug which is annoying and means you need an adapter to use it but they cost less than £1 .

Nice product

D. Harris, Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: As a Mac person, I found this very easy to use: plug in the power lead and use the supplied USB lead to connect to the Mac, select the new drive in Time Machine and let the backup commence. Though my machine is elderly and only has USB2, the drive can cope with that fine. The external power supply means that you can use any USB socket - even those on the keyboard which sometimes can't be used for devices drawing a lot of power. The drive is quiet and attractively styled.

Western Digital 2tb

Mr Black, Amazon
4 June 2009
  • Summary: The Western Digital 2tb drives are asthetically pleasing and have the same design as the 1tb drives with just bigger hard drive capacity. Connections and power adapters are the same with the same 2 pin and 3 pin clip and swap plugs provided in the 1tb versions. One usb and firewire connection is provided if you want esata you will still need to purchase a cable separately.
