Summary: I searched all over the internet to be a "smart shopper". I found this to be the best price & quality combination for the type of external hard drive that I was looking for. The delivery was very fast and I'm happy with the product.
Summary: I have purchased several of these and have had no problems. Of course, this is a desktop external hard drive and requires an AC adapter (not USB powered), but it's fine if you don't need to carry it around with you. The cost is good compared to others.
Summary: It's USB 2, so not all that quick, and the internal drive is almost certainly 5400rpm, so not all that quick. Perfect for overnight backups. Lots of storage space for regular users (digital photographers will run out pretty quickly), but this is a decent backup drive. I like Western Digital and have bought their drives for years.
Summary: This is an awesome usb external hard drive. It is super fast and makes hardly any noise. It was easily detected by my Windows Server and did not even need to reboot my machine. The shipment was fast and hassel free. I will definately purchase more usb hard drives and recomend to all my friends.
Summary: After 5 months of using the WD 2TB, the unit stopped working and an ERROR message – I/O not responding. I could not access all my data and with limited warranty provided I basically lost all my records.
Summary: This drive performs great, very quiet, easy to use. It did not want to show up when I connected it to my computer, tried different computers, same thing. Finally tried a different cable I bought from best buy and worked perfectly.
