Won't Stay Connected on a Mac

Nicholas Avallone, Amazon
17 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought a Western Digital My Book 3.0 - 1 TB drive about a year ago because I needed a reliable drive for regular back ups for my MacBook Pro via Time Machine. When I first plugged it in, it was fast, connected easily, and gave me no problems at all. It worked great...

DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE

Carol M. Highsmith, Amazon
17 August 2011
  • Summary: I have used Western Digital for years and have loads of them. You can even drop them and they are like workhorses - they keep on working. The 3.0 has a new USB connection interface. I bought two of these drives.

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.

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.

  • Summary: After one month, the port to plug the cable in is suddenly broken, and we can do nothing with it. The port is soldered carelessly. It is very bad. Don't buy it.
