5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: I have had this for a few months now and am very happy with it I partitioned it mainly to have seperate drives for backup of myh computers and data I have 2 laptops and a desktop that I keep current imagee of on it and update monthly and it has always done it's job luckily I have not had to restore my computer since they work good too. I use windows 7 pro and USB 3.0 capable card so get better results than USB 2 on average day I get about 30MB/s write and 45MB/s read speeds some days a little faster some days a little slower but I have never had it drop below 25GB write speed like I have had with other brand drives fits in my pocket for when take it to school no problem and on their USB 2 computers I get about 8MB/s write and 11MB/s read speeds. very happy with it will buy another one as soon as can justify the expense or the prices come back down where they belong after everyone back to full production

Cons: it was not available in blue so had to settle for silver

1 out of 5 eggsI do NOT recommend

Pros: None

Cons: This drive is pathetic...I completely regret buying it. My computer will NOT recognize it on it's own start up...I must unplug then re-plug the usb cable and then it usually recognizes it. The WD software that came with it is OK but keeps trying to update. The LaCie I bought works wonderfully well...shoulda bought more of those. Hate this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsit IS Usb3 and the included cable was usb3.

Pros: The device packs a punch, and as long as you have USB 3.0 on your Laptop/Desktop you'll realize the USB 3 speeds.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggssneaky packaging

Pros: I would say it works fine as a usb. 2.0 device.

Cons: *** important. I didn't notice until i already bought it, but the cable that comes with this drive ONLY supports USB 2.0. How the heck am I supposed to get a 3.0 cable for this stupid thing! I think advertising this as a a 3.0 device but only including the 2.0 cable is borderline fraudulent... even if it does say so in the small print.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the device, as this is not the typical experience with the product. The drive is a USB device with a USB 3.0 cable which is not only included, but also backwards-compatible with USB 2.0, for use with a Windows or Mac computer. If the device is exhibiting concerns, then you will want to try it on another system and/or USB port on your primary computer. Is there anything we can do for you at this time? If so, 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.

3 out of 5 eggsThere are better alternatives...

Pros: Small, requires no external power supply

Cons: Micro USB connector is tiny, uncommon, and fragile. Internal drive not usable as standard SATA drive.

Other Thoughts: After a year of faithful service, the connector has gotten so flaky that I have to delicately balance the cable otherwise the drive drops out of my OS and I get corruption errors. Unfortunately, because it's not an SATA drive internally, I can't pull it out and use it that way...It's pretty much toast.

Unplug the cable from the drive before throwing it in your backpack...

5 out of 5 eggsWell built, simple, and works!

Pros: This drive includes a small, solid enclosure, a good (though short) cable, and so far it's been reliable from the start. It comes NTFS formatted, but I used it both as a backup device for my DVR and then reformatted it for use on my Linux desktop. You can literally carry this thing in your front pocket.

Cons: Wish the cable were a tad longer.

Other Thoughts: For once, it was nice not to fight the packaging to get to it. Nice job, Western Digital!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Built solid and looks good. Fast as it gets with USB 2.0 and no power supply! I use this on a daily basis at work to transfer and backup user's files. I have 2 other WD external drives in various sizes and they all have lasted over 3 years...pretty good for the abuse they take!

Cons: I use this on a daily basis at work to transfer and backup user's files...no wonder I work 10-12 hour days...
