USB port broken

Bert K, Amazon
8 April 2013
  • Summary: The USB port in this drive is very cheap. The drive connection would go in and out until it finally fell into the case. I had to take it apart to get to the sata drive inside. I use an adapter I had to access the files. Not very dependable drive. :(

Can't say enough about this product.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: This external drive is a great workhorse that allows me to back up everything and more. The USB 3 speed is very quick. Installing the USB 3 card was a breeze and the unit works flawlessly. I have recommended this unit to other people.

Seriously poor design

Justean E Kapp, Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: If you just want a hard drive buy this and tear it apart to pull the WD Caviar Black drive out, otherwise look elsewhere. As others have stated the usb port on the external enclosure is attached with spit and pulls out quite easily tearing several pins out and rendering the enclosure unusable.

WD My Book 3.0-1TB USB 3.0 Ext Drive

Charles G. Kolbach, Amazon
7 May 2011
  • Summary: The drive and the PCI-Express Card required for USB 3.0 operation installed easily. I have only been using the drive for a month, so I do not have long term experience with it. However, everything has worked perfectly to date.

My Book 3.0 Connector Failure

James R Young, Amazon
6 March 2011
  • Summary: I purchased a 1TB my book 3.0 and used it for about a month and a half until the connector pulled of the PCB. This seems to be a recurring problem with these drives. Fortunately I backed it up the night before this happened but I did add more files the next day.

Speed is the Key

Rakesh Sikdar "rockthegod", Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: First of all I would like to say that this is an excellent product from Western Digital. I have to backup TBs of data and I don't have the patience to do that with USB 2.0 based backup drives when faster alternatives like eSATA/USB 3.0 are available.
