I should have believe the reviews

Bob, Amazon
20 July 2011
  • Summary: I owned a western digital external hard drive in the past and it is still performing after several years. When I needed more storage I bought My Book 3.0. It was quiet and installed easily. However, in about 2 months the power supply broke--it cost me $25 to replace it.

USB port broken

Bert K, Amazon
1 April 2010
  • 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. :(

Trust other reviewers on reliability

Brian Uri, Amazon
31 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this unit as a portable way to backup files across my home network. The drive was very easy to set up and did a fine job with data storage (something which should be a given when reviewing a hard drive).

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.

  • Excerpt: Produit largement insatisfaisant.
  • Pros: Usage banal pour des copier-coller.
  • Cons: Le logiciel Smartware ne remplit pas sa fonction de sauvegarde automatique continue.Une proposition de driver plus récent apparaît en pemanence.

Naja ... eher enttäuscht

der Kritiker, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: Als Besitzer des vorherigen Produkts, der 500GB USB2 Platte, bin ich gewohnt mit einer leisen Platte zu arbeiten. Ausserdem, ging diese (green) Platte auch von selbst nach relativ kurzer Zeit in den "SleepMode".
