Excerpt: Large capacity, but frustratingly slow hard drive inside. Older usb2 drives are much faster (transfer rate). Also the WesternDigital Smartware is not user friendly and also not flexible (cannot syncronize)
Excerpt: an absolutely awesome device. it runs smoothly and was quick and easy to unpack and plug in. the only problem i had was that i paid in excess of R1600 and a day later found it on another website including free delivery for R1499. damn murphy!
Summary: Hooked it up, everything went fine until day three and it's been a constant, "usb device not recognized." I'm pretty computer savvy, but after many tries, nothing. WD service had little advice to help me. I would return it but unfortunately I paid cash and can't find my receipt. I have two Seagate's and have had no problems with them. Unfortunate choice and although I keep receipts, this one isn't to be found. I can't give this any rating because it's not working.
