This review is from: WD My Book 3TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Storage WDBACW0030HBK-NESN
Beautiful drive - functioned well - no problems there !
The unit failed to turn on (was flashing and then quit) & I assume it was an electrical failure and not the drive itself.
Since the drive contains about 2 TB of old data I am going to see if I can put the drive in an external enclosure and harvest my data. I realize this will invalidate my warranty but keeping my data is worth not getting a replacement unit from WD. I paid $150 for this unit and would have expected it to have lasted much longer than this one did. I have used WD internal drives doe years without any problems.
