5 out of 5 eggsworth it

This review is from: WD My Book 3TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDBFJK0030HBK-NESN

Pros: i am surprised this external drive usb 3.0 is using 40 mb/sec transfer even when not plugged into a usb 3.0 port? it's nice...

Cons: there's 3-4 software updates that have to happen before this unit is completely ready to be used.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid external backup drive

This review is from: WD My Book 3TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDBFJK0030HBK-NESN

Pros: I always use Western Digital drives for my internal storage needs and this is my first external hard drive purchase. This has huge capacity which I've already filled half. Seems plenty fast enough as long as you have it connected to a USB 3.0 port. This replaced an old Seagate 500GB external backup which has only USB 2.0. This WD 3TB drive blows it away speed-wise.

Cons: The only thing I'm not happy with is the bundled backup software. It's bloated, difficult to use and very unintuitive. So I deleted it and am using EaseUS ToDo Home backup software full version which does the job much better and without the hassle.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm happy with this purchase. The hardware is awesome, the software was a huge disappointment.

4 out of 5 eggsHappy with purchase

This review is from: WD My Book 3TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDBFJK0030HBK-NESN

Pros: Low power consumption
Price can be cheaper than buying the drive inside by itself
Whisper quiet
No bright lights
Good ventilation holes
Sleek enclosure design

Cons: No fan to dissipate heat
Drive inside is only 5400 RPM
Plug to wall takes up too much room

Other Thoughts: I've only had this for less than a week but so far I'm quite happy with my purchase. I've loaded it up about half full and so far everything is working very well. Even though it doesn't have a fan it doesn't get too hot. A different enclosure I have without a fan the drive gets so hot I fear it might damage it, this is not the case with this. At best I can feel a slight warms when touching the enclosure or feeling the vents for heat. The drive inside is WD WD30EZRX which spins at only 5400 RPM but only takes up 6W of power on load which is partly why no fan is needed. It is whisper quiet because of the good enclosure design. At arms length away you will not be able to notice that it's on except for the light which is a nice soft white. The power plug does not have a power brick in the middle so the plug to the wall is a bit of a brick, not oversized but I'd rather the brick be in the middle of the cord to free up space on the wall outlet. I purchased this for cheaper than it costs for the drive inside. Packaged software that it comes with is good but as I'll be using it for a NAS I have not used it too much. Excellent buy so far. Gave 4 eggs for the cons though I suppose it would have been more expensive had it fixed those issues.

5 out of 5 eggsLots of space, good value

This review is from: WD My Book 3TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDBFJK0030HBK-NESN

Pros: A large amount of space. decent transfer rates. USB3. All cables are in the box. Single drive so no raid to fail. Does not come with a bunch of disk management software installed and taking up space. Very nice price for this device.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Moved everything from a 640 GB media drive to the compy, then to this guy. Moving files to the MyBook was super nice over usb 3.0. It has good ventilation.
