Old Reliable

  • Excerpt: This is my 3rd WD My Book and the first one is still running after 6 yrs. I use them to store my documents, pictures & music. I mirror everything to Drive # 2 and #3. These drives have never failed me. They run quiet. I have not installed the Acronis backup utility yet but will write a review once completed. I highly recommend these drives.

  • Excerpt: Western Digital is the only brand I trust. I had a run of bad luck with Seagates a few years ago, and have never looked back. These are used to back up my video documentary productions, and rendering the final product.

The Very Best!!!

Fine Artist, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I've been using WD for as long as they've been out! I've never had one to break! I use a UPS to connect all my electronics to. The main cause of these units going down is not having you HD connected to a UPS ( uninterruptible power supply ). A good power supply will keep the incoming power from causing damage to your electronic devices. A good one starts at $. Anything cheaper and you're on standing on shaky ground. All in all said anything man made will have problems.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Reliable
  • Cons: Makes Noise
