Do not use this in a RAID 0 configuration

  • Summary: This item failed after about five years. But the disks were recoverable once I purchase a new disk housing. I used RAID 0 which was a huge mistake.

OK, I guess

Don Mitchusson, Amazon

  • Summary: It's OK as long as you only turn it on when you plan to use it. Works for me because I only back up once a week. IF you leave it on all the time, it gets hot and fails.

cheap storage

  • Summary: good for backup if you don't want to manipulate anything on the drive yourself; not good if you want to use it as an external drive which is my case.

Doesn't Stay Connected

dabotofus2, Amazon

  • Summary: We've been using this drive as a back-up to our internal hard drive for almost 2 years. The My Book operates fast (our computer has a USB 3.0 port) and has a nice form factor. We use it with Folder Clone software to back-up our files. It's supposed to be an automatic back-up, and it is... sometimes. The problem is that frequently when I check the computer drives, the computer has 'lost' the My Book. No clue what the cause is.

Power Supply cable

Wendy Cheairs, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: My power cable for my WD Hard Drive died and this was one of the better prices for the adapter I needed for my computer. I got it right when Amazon said it would be here. The only problem I have with it is that the cable is so much shorter than I was used to. The length of my original cable for the drive was about twice as long as the one I got from here, so when I plug in my extra hard drive it sits on a chair near the desk instead of on the desk since the cable from my...

My evaluation

Grumpy77, Office Depot
25 February 2012
  • Excerpt: When I purchase an external hard drive I expect to plug it into the wall, power it on, and use it at full operational efficiency. It should not be any more complicated than that. I have only purchased two commercially built external hard drives in my life, the first being an Iomega many years ago, and have been dissatisfied with both. The Iomega did not even have a power switch on it. You had to remove the plug from the wall in order to power the unit down.
  • Pros: good price
  • Cons: see my review

Worked good but,

Aaron, Amazon
3 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this while I was deployed to back up my itunes so I could free up space on my netbook. When I got home and plugged it in it worked good until I unplugged the USB it tore the connection right off the card, lucky a local computer shop was still able to recover all the data. Most western digital products are rated very good. maybe just got a lemon.
