5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Fast: Over 100MB/s transfer rate.
Its built with quality
The cables are sturdy
The ports are NOT flimsy

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive for over a year, I love it.

Power Button is in the Back, for those who are confused in these reviews, all you have to do is hold it down for a few seconds.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the Price

Pros: I got it on sale for $70, managed to survive two falls onto concrete from about 5 feet cause of careless roommates, the third one finally broke the case. Inside of it is a 7200rpm Cavier black hard drive, I just took it and installed inside my computer and works like a charm.

Cons: Blinking white light is annoying, if it was less bright or maybe just on/off in a solid state wouldnt have bothered me.

2 out of 5 eggsCable won't fit or port broken

Pros: Worked well for awhile.

Cons: Got it out today and the cable will no longer plug into the external drive, no matter which way I turn it and angle it.

Seems some other people here have had the same problem.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: works alright, no problems found. USB 3.0 is great, easily reach 50~80MB/s transfer rate.

Cons: The vibration is a little strong, had to take it off my desk and put it on a shelf next to my desk so I won't feel it when typing. P.S. My desk is very stable.

1 out of 5 eggsPOOR BUILD QUALITY - DO NOT BUY

Pros: Sleek looking, decent speed when it works

Cons: WD uses a CHEAP USB connection on the circuit board that connects to the HDD. I bought this in Nov' 10 and used it for a desktop - it was moved maybe 3 times in that time period. However, on the last time that I unplugged it to move it, the fragile soldering points from the USB Micro B connector came undone. Unless you have experience fixing watches, it's very difficult to solder the connections. Additionally you can't just replace the circuit board either because WD keeps changing the board, and if you are lucky enough to find a matching board, it likely won't work because of built-in hardware encryption. This encryption makes it difficult/expensive to recover your data after this $0.50 piece of tin breaks.

Other Thoughts: BUY SOMETHING ELSE

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for in convenience you may have experienced with the product thus far, as this is not the typical experience with our My Book drives. We would appreciate the opportunity to investigate this matter further, as the port breaking off from within the enclosure is not something we typically see with our external connected devices. You may contact us at 1 (800) 275-4932, or via our support website at: http://support.wdc.com/rs/.
Please indicate within the online case creation or with the first support agent you speak with that you are responding to an Newegg review so we route you and your information to the correct team members.

1 out of 5 eggsDON't BUY Western Digital External Hard Drives

Pros: NONE. I wish I could give Zero Stars

Cons: My Hard Drive broke after only 2 months of use. Customer Service was Horrible. I called Sunday during their normal business hours. I was on hold for an hour and 17 minutes. The operator who answered the phone said due to unusually high call volume they have to give me a call back tomorrow. He would not give me his name. He said he did not work for western digital. I asked him who he worked for he would not give me an answer. He put me on hold without telling me for another few minutes. Then he answered again, thinking I was a different customer. I asked him his name an the company he worked for, he ignored the questions. I asked to speak to a supervisor. He said hold on for 2 minutes while I transfer ou. then he hung up on me.

Other Thoughts: Lousy Customer Service.
I have never encountered a situation where I have been on hold before for an hour and a half and then have someone answer the phone and tell me that they can't help me.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with either the device or tech support, as this is not the typical experience with our products.

3 out of 5 eggsunsure about WD now

Pros: inexpensive, fast, nice design, sleek, no more super bright led anymore that will keep you awake

Cons: cheap, one of my cables that go into the drive is bent under normal stress (not sure if the 3.0 design is just bad or what), 3.0 cable is NOT long enough (only 3 ft), cant use more than 2 of these 3.0 drives or they do not function properly (wont read on boot or transfer errors)

2 out of 5 eggsBad Luck

Pros: My PC would not recognize it. I requested an RMA and got it, but I requested an exchange and ended up just getting my money back. And, I ended up paying a processing fee for that. First less than satisfactory experience I've ever had with Newegg.

Cons: It just didn't work with my PC

Other Thoughts: I've had too many good experiences with Newegg to get turned off by one issue.
