Very bad hard drive!

TomB, Office Depot
29 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Drive was available for a few days and then became inaccessible. Nothing could be done to resurrect it. I tried my Linux desktop and laptop as well as my Windows7 laptop and not one of them could access the hard drive after a short time. Completely and totally D-E-A-D!!!

Locks you out unusable after that

Perry266, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: My book decided to lock up and demand a password. WD support was worthless. Told me to buy another one. If you MUST buy this, DISABLE the password and delete all the WD garbage by reformatting toe drive to a blank drive. WD piles all sorts of junk on here. Delete it and re-format.
  • Cons: Design, Performance, Difficult to Use

  • 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.

wwohl602, CNET
23 October 2013
  • 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
