4 out of 5 eggsWorks for Windows

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book for Mac Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBYCC0020HBK-NESN

Pros: Works for Windows and likely will work for any operating system with a quick format.

Cons: Comes with an unremovable stamp on the front that says "For Mac" on the front, can't fathom why any company would want to do that considering how much they must pay in royalties. This is easily remedied with a sharpie.

Other Thoughts: Surprisingly good buy considering it's "for mac" which usually bumps up the price of things by roughly double their value.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book for Mac Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBYCC0020HBK-NESN

Pros: Whisper quiet, fast transfer rate, and looks great and understated on the desktop without taking up much real estate.

Cons: The included software glitched when downloading the update, but it's extraneous with Time Machine anyway. This may be a system of my hard drive failing (the reason I'm buying my third backup drive--trust in redundancy, not reviews).

Other Thoughts: Worth every penny for data peace of mind.

5 out of 5 eggsSeemless compatability

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book for Mac Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBYCC0020HBK-NESN

Pros: Works with Mac Mini as if it were made by Apple
Totally non-intrusive

I have an older Mac Mini that doesn't support USB 3 or Thunderbolt. So I got this one to use with USB 2. I plugged it in. Turned on the Mac. Was prompted with, "Do you want to use this for backup?". Said, "yes". And, bingo. It was done. Started the first backup automatically, which took some hours due to USB 2 speed. And, it's been making backups periodically ever since.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried to restore from any of the backups. Hopefully I never have to and hopefully backup would work just fine. But, that's not a drive issue.
