Slow, Slow. Slow

Summary: I have 9 Western Digital external USB hard disks and this one is BY FAR the slowest. Very disappointed! Even the small passports drives are actually significantly faster that this disk. Yes, I did set the Windows policy for "performance" and not "quick removal", and guess what? Still super SLOW! Maybe there is a reason WD does not talk RPMs and performance in the spec sheet. Bottomline - don't buy this disk.
Summary: So Ive had this thing for 6 months now and it has worked relatively well. The only problem I've had is when starting my computer with the WD HDD plugged in it would freeze my computer. No problems when resuming from standby. But just recently I went to resume my computer from standby and the entire WD HDD re-formatted itself to the RAW format. Unable to recover my file's and lost 1.7 TB...Gone..
Summary: I have four of these drives that have limited usage...now three. Would probably rate as a 2.75 Positives: +Flawless compatibility with USB2.0, XP, MediaPlayer, and third party backup software. (I have experienced various compatibility issues with combined USB3.0/2.0 drives and drives over 2.0TB e.g. WD MediaPlayer max drive size 2.0TB); +Price point; +Physical size. Negatives: -Failure/Life Span (I backed up 2TB to this drive months ago.

Conclusion: Брал для хранения, просмотра видео и фото на SAMSUNG 5 серии. Телевизор сильно тормозит, или перезагружается!!! Пробовал поменять на меньшего объема, говорят, что это не поломка, отказали!!!
