Western Digital external hard drive

Mr Douglas Grossart, Amazon
17 July 2013
  • Summary: This item was received promptly and well packaged. However in pursuit of a purely technical enquiry I comtacted Western Digital and was astonished to learn that the product had been manufactured almost three years previously and was six months beyond any manufacturers warranty. I fully appreciate that my warranty, in the event of any serious problem, would be borne by Amazon but in this age of rapid technological advance I do not expect to be supplied with an item of...

Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 1TB USB 3.0 Super Speed External Hard Drive and USB 3.0 Adapter Bundle

MikeWH, Amazon
24 August 2011
  • Summary: In the past my backups via USB2 to an external hard drive using Windows 7 Backup seemed to take for ever. My old computer only has 2 internal Sata connections so I tried a Sata PCIe card to provide an eSATA connection to an external SATA hard drive enclosure. This gave no end of trouble. So I thought I would give My Book USB3 + USB3 PCIe card a try. It was straight forward to install the card and driver and My Book works a treat.

Controller Card Problems

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 June 2011
  • Summary: The drive seems to work fine, but alas I can't get USB3 speeds as the included controller card isn't recognised by my computer. No amount of tinkering would resolve the issue, so ended up purchasing a Transcend Card - and that was another story. For those looking for the tech details - I'm running (a now ancient by tech standards) ALiveSATA2-GLAN motherboard with Win7 64bit.

Misleading presentation

jenrico1, Amazon
19 April 2011
  • Summary: I wasn't aware of the inclusion of a USB Adapter Bundle with the Hard Drive, that at the time was not explained in the webpage of the product. Consequently I ordered the recommended Trascend Expansion Card (Frequently Bought Together). It turned out it was not necessary since an adapter was included in the box. In other words, I spent GBP 12 unnecessarily (I know I could have returned the card, but when I found out I was abroad).
