Summary: What a great tool. Small and compact, yet 1 TB of space. It only gets a slightly warm and you can hear the drive turning inside if you listen closely. I've used it as an extra back-up in case my normal external drive craps out.
Excerpt: Well, this was a disappointment. Worked great right out of the box and thanks to the speed of the USB 3.0, it copied over about 30gb in about 20 minutes. However, the next time I plugged it in, it wasn't responding. Tried plugging it in to different computers and tried a different cable.
Summary: The is the second and last WD device I have owned. Both failed in the same way. After loading with my precious pictures and documents, it fails to be recognized by the computer when plugged in to it. Online support has been useless. I took the first to repair shops but they could not get it to work.
Excerpt: Although this drive is USB 3.0 compatible, my computer has only USB 2.0 ports. No matter, the drive is functioning perfectly anyway. It's small in size, but big in capacity, with plenty of room for my file needs.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
