Excerpt: I have two of these to back up my data and photo files. I alternate backing up between them on at least a weekly basis, more frequently if I am gernerating a lot of files or doing alot of photo processing. That wasy I am never going to lose more than a week of data out if something happens and I have a major hard drive failure.
Excerpt: I use this drive for back up of my 2TB RAID D drive. I works just fine though a little slow because it is a 5,200 RPM HD. Also, the WD software allows another back up, (2 more actually), to an external 2TB hdd from another Manufacturer. The - 1 star isn't really fair because a small, portable drive like this has RPM limits and isn't the same as a 3.5 in drive with a separate power source.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable, Western Digital
Excerpt: small, portable, fast, reliable. What I especially like - the ability to make it secure right out of the box. Software gives you the ability to create password to the whole drive, so nobody else can get into it.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable, Secure
Summary: Very good to store my data. You can use it with Mac. You do get only about 1.81TB but besides that it's a very great item for the price. I looked at this item on Best Buy and it was at least forty dollars more.
