1 out of 5 eggsRead the EULA before you use, or buy...

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN

Pros: You may be able to format the drive, thus erasing the install-ware ("smartware") WD includes on the physical drive instead of an install disk. This may allow you to use the product as a simple external drive, that you could then use however you wish.

Cons: IF you want to use the software WD includes on the drive, you must agree to WD's EULA. The EULA for the software, including the backup software, stipulates that WD has the right to collect every bit of info you back-up to their drive, including credit card numbers, phone numbers, addresses, etc. In the privacy policy part of the EULA, WD gives several reasons as to why and how your personal info will be used, as I recall, the last line reads:that you must agree that your info can "be used however the company deems appropriate". Because of this, I decided to RMA the product.

Other Thoughts: Be aware also, that unless you format the drive and get the install-ware off of it (I decided against doing so) , your agreement to their EULA is necessary in order to even use the drive. Otherwise, it shows up as a disconnected device.

While it may have been possible to format the drive, erasing the install-ware, when it comes down to it there are better external drives available. This one has an enclosure made of plastic. You're better off with one that at least has a metal or aluminum enclosure, fwiw.

5 out of 5 eggsWD My Book 2TB Great Purchase

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN

Pros: Bought this hard drive to use as an external for my Xbox One and it has worked perfectly so far. 2TB is certainly enough for what I needed at a great price point. Quick setup and has been reliable so far.

Cons: The only con so far is the way it stands. The rubber pads at the bottom have it mounted upright almost like a book which does not seem stable. I am almost afraid it will fall off the desk. Suppose it could be placed on its side though so not really a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet external.

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN

Pros: This drive has great performance and is quiet.
It will automatically power off when not in use.
The cables it comes with (power and usb3) are nice and long.

Great price for 2tb (1.81tb usable)

Western digital drives seem to like me and have a long life in my care. Hopefully this drive doesn't prove me wrong.

Cons: The glossy black case does look nice but is a smudge magnet.

Doesn't have a usb3 port on the drive for daisy chaining but for the price you cant expect everything.

Other Thoughts: Love the long cables as this allows it to sit away from my pc on a shelf above my desk. Stays nice and cool.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN

Pros: - Has an independent power cord.
- Acceptable performance over an USB 3.0 port. Writing speed as reported by Windows is on average 103 MB/s.

Cons: - No power button.
- Like most external driver, vertical position is rather unstable and can be easily knocked over. Not really a problem for me, I just use it in horizontal position.

Other Thoughts: Recommended so far but only using for a week... Will see on the long term.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Ok...

This review is from: WD 2TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN

Pros: 2 TB of data space....fast with USB3...password enabled on installed computer AND with others...did general WD backup of 2GBs data in 20 minutes...great for those with many large files...

Cons: Don't really like and might not use the installed backup software...could be very useful for someone working on large important fies...but since use is dependent on use of propietary software...backup files are not visible unless WD software is installed...and then only if files are copied back elsewhere. Issues might arise with a HD or Windows failure? No point to doing an elaborate backup if you can't utilize it reliably when needed? Though there is an "upgrade" to use with 2 other computers I think. If you are tech savy...go with it?

Other Thoughts: Compared to my old laptop and when doing mirror copies of most important files...this drive copied the same data in 1.5 mins vs about 20 mins with the old Vista laptop USB2. Since copying is so fast I have little interest in compression.

Mirrored backup files were visible from the old USB2 laptop once PW was entered.

Went with this backup drive due to expected reliability and 2 TB data space...plus password.
