3 out of 5 eggsMore trouble then it was worth

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

Pros: Price

Cons: Constant updates needed

Other Thoughts: I purchased this so I could upgrade my hard drives to SSD drives in two computers. I figured with 4 TB I would have lots of room to back up both computers. After I got done loading all the WD software on my laptop I was ready to do a back up of the disk so I could put in the new SSD and restore it. Wrong. Not the fault of the WD as the SSD I bought was slightly smaller (480 gb) then the hard drive I was replacing (500 gb). Not the end of the world but each time I booted up the laptop I was bombarded with update needs and reminders from the WD software. I ended up removing the 3 programs that were installed and now the My Book is simply that, a book on my bookshelf.

1 out of 5 eggsAlmose for 4 months

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

Pros: 3 TB, USB, Fast Transfer, It Worked....for 4 months

Cons: At 4 months clicking and nothing else. Tried all software and steps and nothing. Done a RMA and found I have to pay shipping to them to get their piece of junk replaced. I think I should have stuck with Seagate because, theirs lasted for at least 2 years.

Other Thoughts: It is a big HD and very good when it works. Does not last long and when you do a rma you pay for shipping to replace their junk.

1 out of 5 eggs4 Months

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

Pros: Big Hard Drive......Works great while it worked.

Cons: 4 months after I get it the HD died and will not work any more. Tried all steps I new and then on their website and still nothing,,,,,

Other Thoughts: Big Hard Drive for the price but, does not last long at all. Almost all the Hard Drives I have ad from Seagate to this Western Digital none have lasted long at all. But, I can say this one lasted the shortest time of all. Should have stuck with a Seagate it lasted the longest which was about 2 years.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic drive

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

Pros: I bought this 7 months ago for the great price of $119 and I love it so. I've thrown large 100+ GB file transfers at it through USB3.0 and have had no problems whatsoever. I stream from it with no hiccups and no issues at all. I can't recommend this enough.

Cons: It doesn't make sandwiches.

Other Thoughts: I remember paying more for a 500GB hard drive years ago.

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

Pros: Lot's of space. Drive has worked well in a generic enclosure for the last 2 years (see cons below).

Cons: Drive is hardware encrypted by SATA circuit board in hard drive enclosure. Should board fail, your data will be lost. I removed mine from the enclosure 2 years ago & placed in generic enclosure. Copied data to another drive before removing then copied back to WD drive in new enclosure.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA, WD's QA is becoming less and less reliable

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

Pros: Easy to use and a decent amount of storage for the price

Cons: Ordered two of these and one was DOA. It was recognized when connected but other than that it was a failure. The casing was not put together very well, it was offset so I had a hard time plugging in the power and USB connection because of poor alignment of the casing to the internal electronics.

WD Q&A Team is becoming less and less reliable. In fact I will not purchase any more of these drives and do not recommend this My Book to anyone.

Other Thoughts: Not worth the chance. Spend the extra cash for a better drive. WD is slipping down the reliability ladder.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the Space for the price

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

Pros: Great for storing many MKV files and may other large files. I have 2 of these. One on my pc for a nice vast amount of storage and the other connected to my WDTV live HUB. The 1TB was already used up on my live player so another 3TB is definitely great.

Cons: Would like a dedicated power on/off button , so that it can rest when not needed.

5 out of 5 eggsIts great

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

Pros: - USB 3.0
- 3TB for a low price
- Excellent NewEgg Shipping Time Frame

I am using this as a backup drive for my home computer... I plugged it in before going to bed and woke up to the back up being complete.... I am a fan. I was using a Seagate drive previously but after having a few Seagate drives completely die on me, I have decided to stick to WD for my larger data storage needs.

Cons: None so far. Will update if this changes.

Other Thoughts: I wish I would've waited just one day to order this.. the day after I bought the 3TB for 119.99, NewEgg dropped the price of the 4TB to 159.99 and an extra terabyte for 40 bucks is totally worth it... but I am too lazy to return the one I already have that is larger than the one I lost. Just an after thought.
