5 out of 5 eggs Nice External Drive 11/13/2012

This review is from: WD My Book 1TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Storage WDBACW0010HBK-NESN


This drive stands on the desk like a book. It looks like a book and is heavy enough to stay put. Has a small white activity light that can be seen even at extreme angles. Very fast with USB 3. Windows reported a speed of about 1.2Gb/s (150MB/s)both up and down. Faster than my 2.5inch external drives. Is recognized and installed automatically on both Windows 7 and Windows XP with no problems. Quiet operation.


Drive requires the included external power pack so you need an additional power receptacle.

Other Thoughts:

I set this drive on the desk, plugged in and it acts just like a drive installed inside the machine. It looks really good on my desk and doesn't get in the way like the smaller pocket size drives that I have where I have to be careful not to catch the cable with something and sweep it off onto the floor. This drive stands right next to the computer and makes a good permanent backup drive. The supplied external transformer is required since it is a 3.5 inch form factor drive, but my power strip had an empty spot for it.
