HD Great, USPS Delivery Subpar

Richard M., Newegg
10 November 2015
  • Pros: Good price. Drive is small so desktop footprint is as well. Very quiet with no heat issues noted.
  • Cons: USPS delivery been very rough over the last few months. I purchase many items only each week and I shutter each time that I see a seller use USPS. Expected delivery dates are very often incorrect. There are limited options to get an update after the expected delivery is missed. USPS can use excus...

Perfect Automation for simple backup

Christopher C., Newegg
24 August 2015
  • Pros: We're using these as a simple backup solution for a few of our mobile users (Surface 3, Laptops, etc). They've been working as intended, even with some of the more clumsy people..
  • Cons: None for now. But it's an external drive.

  • Cons: Crashed in less than a year. Would not buy again! Now I have to find a way to get my data off the drive.

First WD Product, Also the Last.

Adam G., Newegg
12 August 2015
  • Summary: I didn't expect this to last long but I did expect it to last longer than it did especially since I hardly ever used the thing. This is the first WD product I have ever bought and this will be the last.
  • Pros: Decent speeds when it worked.
  • Cons: Cheaply made. Broke in two months, used only 6 times to backup games. WD intergrates the horrible USB card into the drive's PCB which means if it breaks (which is what happened to me) you lose everything unless you transfer the platter to a donor drive which is very risky and hard to do.

Works great

Danny M., Newegg
21 June 2015
  • Summary: I tend to use Linux a lot, so it would be nice if Linux natively supported the drive locking (I assume just ATA password spec), but not a big deal since I just use full drive encryption on them anyway.
  • Pros: Works as expected, and nice fast USB 3 if I need it. I also have a 500G model as well for my Wii-U, so I bought this second one based on past experience with this series of drives. Nice that it doesn't require a power adaptor! Another plus is that since the drive internally uses encryption, wippi...

Died after less than a year

Thomas C., Newegg
28 May 2015
  • Summary: Don't buy one.
  • Pros: It worked for a while and stored a lot of data.
  • Cons: It died completely after less than ten months, losing all that data. This stinks! Even before, it was annoying. The blue light blinks constantly when plugged in, even when powered off, which is no fun if you sleep in the same room. It also beeps occasionally at night, even powered off. But the ma...
