Very bad hard drive!

TomB, Office Depot
29 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Drive was available for a few days and then became inaccessible. Nothing could be done to resurrect it. I tried my Linux desktop and laptop as well as my Windows7 laptop and not one of them could access the hard drive after a short time. Completely and totally D-E-A-D!!!

Avoid

Clive Davies, Amazon

  • Summary: I have struggled along with this drive for more than a year and for anything other than a striaght Backup it is just about unusable. Despite the fastest Fibre broadband and the fastest router available you will still grow old before it responds. If you just want to do overnight backups perhaps but it is rubbish as a NAS solution.

Utter rubbish don't buy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: The software is dreadful, it doesn't work. I should have checked online and read the forums first. Loads of people have had connection problems. WD are regularly having to issue update software. Worst ever external hard disk I've ever purchased. When I contacted WD under warranty their answer is return it to the US via an insured courier as my cost and they'll replace it.

Western Digital WDBACG0020HCH-NESN My Book Live Home Network Drive

Iggy, pricebat.ca
7 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Appears sleek and is really quiet until ... ... till it started malfunctioning. I was copying about only three gigs of information when it all of a sudden started clicking and thunking loudly after about two hours of use. I did not purchase this from NewEgg, but from another company that had terrible customer service, and I ended up having to spend shipping back to the merchant for a defective device. NewEgg undoubtedly requires far better care of their customers.

  • Excerpt: Look to perform ok for a although. I am a consultant and utilized to suggest this series to consumers for external backups.

  • Excerpt: Backs up files SLOWLY Backup is extremely slow. About 9 hours for just more than 107 GB. Remote access does not perform. MioNet, the software program you use to access the drive, reports that the drive is offline all the time. Software support has no clue why this is. Can not share file or music or something else. once again assistance has no notion why this does not operate.
