4 out of 5 eggsGreat 1TB for $100

Pros: -Simple
-Comes with Firewire 400, 800 and USB cables

Cons: e-label broken?

Other Thoughts: I've had this for about a month now, works great for transferring large files. Pretty quite, although noise isn't really a problem for me. I mainly use it as my timemachine backup and it seems to work pretty well. I haven't taken a look at the software they throw in with it, but i've heard good things, i just have no use for it. However, the little e-label on the front side seems to be broken. It's stuck on "80 videos" and hasn't changed since i've taken it out of the box. Not really a problem as it seems a little gimmicky to me, i'd never have a need to know exactly how many videos are on there without remembering on my own..but it'd be nice if it actually worked.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

Pros: Simple easy setup. The software is pretty simple and was straight forward for the setup and backup. Not that you have to use the software, but it isn't that bad. Super QUIET!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not blaming the device, but my Firewire 800 fried and now I can't read the device through that port, but Firewire 400 and USB work fine still.

3 out of 5 eggsWhere's the build quality?

Pros: Included software makes drive configuration easy (though I use TimeMachine for backups)
Firewire 800 is a must for me, glad it's included
The e-label is fairly useful, and kind of cool (more on that below)
Quiet, fanless operation (the drive is a bit noisy though)
Good looking

Cons: Build quality? Quality assurance?

Other Thoughts: My drive arrived quickly and pretty well packed. Thanks Newegg!
When I opened it up though, I could see the the e-label screen wasn't quite mounted correctly when the enclosure was put together. It's at a bit of an angle meaning that it doesn't quite line up with the plastic window. Now I'm rather certain that I could open the enclosure, straighten the screen, and put it all back together. Except that doing so may void my warranty which, according to Newegg, is 5 years. So I won't be doing that. I need the drive, not the fancy screen, so I won't be making an RMA request. But it angers me knowing that it's easy to fix and I can't touch it. It angers me further knowing that WD let this leave the factory, not quite put together properly, and I paid for it. Really irritating. Let's hope the rest of the thing is properly assembled.
