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

Herodias, Amazon
24 August 2011
  • 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. So I thought I would give My Book USB3 + USB3 PCIe card a try. It was straight forward to install the card and driver and My Book works a treat.

Misleading presentation

  • 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). It turned out it was not necessary since an adapter was included in the box. In other words, I spent GBP 12 unnecessarily (I know I could have returned the card, but when I found out I was abroad).

Great kit, but wish it was faster

  • Summary: First of all, the bundle arrived in perfect condition. The MyBook is smaller that I expected looking at the photographs and the front white led is really pretty. The USB 3 controller card comes with the full-height bracket mounted; it took a minute to replace it by the half-height bracket. I had absolutely no problem at all with installation and it is running with Windows 7.

Schnell aber doch hörbar

eberhard42, Amazon
18 June 2011
  • Summary: Nachdem meine My Book Premium Edition aus 3 m abgestürzt ist (arbeitet auch jetzt noch einwandfrei), war sie mir für BackUps nicht mehr zuverlässig genug. Damit die BackUps schneller ablaufen, entschied ich mich für den USB 3 - Nachfolger. Durch die mitgelieferte Schnittstellenkarte sollte es keine Inkompatibilitäten geben. Nach nunmehr 7 Monaten das Fazit: - Die Platte ist wesentlich kleiner als ihr Vorgänger. Sie wird auch nach längerem Berieb kaum warm.

Western Digital WDBAAK0010HCH My Book USB 3.0 1TB externe Festplatte (8,9 cm (3,5 Zoll)

Prinzleo, Amazon
1 August 2010
  • Summary: Festplatte ausgepackt. Ein USB-Kabel war dabei. An den Rechner angeschlossen. Alles lief völlig unproblematisch in gewohnter Weise wie bei allen u.a. USB 2-Festplatten. Wie es nicht anders zu erwarten war, mußte ich zuvor eine USB 3-Karte einbauen, da mein Rechner ca. 2 Jahre alt ist und nur einen USB 2-Anschluß hat.
