Fast and reliable

  • Summary: This was my first USB 3.0 external drive. I have not taken advantage of the speed of USB 3.0 until recently, since all my computers were notebooks equipped only with USB 2.0. The best thing of this drive is that the PCIe type of the adapter with 2 USB 3.0 ports is included in the package.

  • Summary: The installation required installing the included PCIe adapter card in my Dell Precision T3400 as it did not have any USB 3.0 ports. The installation in Windows 7 went smoothly using the supplied drivers CD. Once installed, I was able to backup my Documents library (~68 GB) in about 3 minutes.

  • Summary: I bought the Mybook 3 2tb to gain the speed proclaimed by USB3. the Card is included and it worked ok, I am using Windows 7 x64, had a weird problem where each time I restart the computer the NEC driver fails and I had to disable it and reenable it again to work.

Faster than I expected

M. Heath "Videophile", Amazon

  • Summary: I have an older desktop machine with a 2.4ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 2gb of ram. I already had an external USB drive but was disapointed with its slow speed. It wasn't really fast enough to stream long video clips smoothly.

Fast on a desktop, but....

Karl Leibensperger, DO "Sawbonz", Amazon

  • Summary: the PCIe card is not compatable with Server 2008, or so they say. It installs and is recognized, but the HD can not be accessed while it is plugged into the 3.0 card. Western Digital advised me to return it, but I installed in a desktop for the speed boost.

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

MikeWH, Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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).
