  • 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.

  • Summary: One of the folders became not accessible. Typical error for broken external drives. I'm going to exchange it, not giving up yet.

Design fail.

  • Summary: Design fail. The fastest cable on the market limited by some of the slowest drives WD has available.
  • Pros: Looks pretty
  • Cons: Cost. You gain nothing over a USB 3.0 version of this at 4 times the price because it has thunderbolt

Good While it lasted

Anonymous, Newegg
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I have used WD for years and this is the biggest pain in the rear, when i tried to get the first one replaced i had to wait weeks for WD to find the drive after they accepted it, then when talking to a rep they stated that it had taken too long for them to find it and i would need to request another RMA. What ever you do DO NOT BUY THIS.
  • Pros: The original worked well until it had to be RMA'd then in less than a year the second one died spontaneously no warning that it was going down, almost full too.
  • Cons: Died with no warning, tried to RMA it and the warranty was not extended with the new product so i have a dead drive thats a little over a year old
