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. :(
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.

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.
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.
