5 out of 5 eggsMega room for Movies

Pros: Very nice, did not have any problems having my system recognize the larger capacity drive.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Although I got mine as a refurbished item I have never had any problems with the WD name they are the only one I buy, I might pay a little more for them but its been worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsWD 3TB MyBook

Pros: I just received my HD and it is up and running. No problems having my system recognize the larger unit. Also it is much faster then my old 500GB unit. I have never had any problems with Western Digital, it is always my first choice in any HD I buy.

Cons: I have no cons at the moment, so far so good.

3 out of 5 eggsrefurbed usb 3 WD external HDD

Pros: good price
large capacity (3TB)
sata 3 6.0 GB HDD is in the unit

Cons: does not awake too fast after some idle time so it has slowed my entire system way down, also, does not work with windows 7 backup.(you need to use sync toy to do your backups)

Other Thoughts: I have not decided if I will just install this drive to my PC internally and forget USB 3.
For now I'm willing to put up with my slower PC...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal

Pros: The price per GB is hard to beat. Worked fine, included all necessary parts. Like new condition. USB 3 makes it quite speedy.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Gave it a full format, and has been working perfectly so far. YMMV with refurbs, but 3 TB and USB 3 for this price is a steal.
