A decent backup drive
27 April 2013
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 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.
Summary: A little noisy-the only time I notice it is when I go to bed, I can hear the HD reading/writing, but that is only because it is on a hard wood surface, which magnifies the sound. But performance is good, and the price is right. Great deal overall.
