Summary: Iv'e been using this for quite a while now, and the best way to describe this is as a Swiss army knife of external storage. I've used as a place to backup files, move files quickly between computers and even use as a scratch drive for some programs I use on my desktop and my laptop. Bottom line is that it is quick, reliable and an invaluable tool I use everyday.
Summary: I bought this device three weeks ago, I've been using and this is excellent, later install all the software include into the device, you have to pick the drive that you have to create a backup and let the device does his work, automatically. If the device is connected to the PC, he will check any change into the computer disk and he will make the same change into himself.
Summary: I was looking for an external hard drive because the computer was getting too cluttered. The hard drive is smaller than I thought. Practically the size of an average wallet. Anyway, the transfer rate is fast with the USB 3.0. I am happy with the purchase.
Summary: My wife and I both have the non "Edge" edition of this drive and the Edge is definitely way thinner. Performance-wise it seems to be on par with the other WD drives in its family. I'm using it personally to store VMs on for my macbook. So I'm running the VMs off the drive with Fusion and everything performs just fine in the regard.
