This review is from: WD My Book 1TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Storage WDBACW0010HBK-NESN
I bought 2 of these from a local store, they worked great out of the box and were pretty quick.
One of the two currently works okay, however the other is dying with read/write errors and bad sectors. I'm currently working on getting everything off the drive as I write this. I didn't think I'd be trying to recover files from my backup drive so soon. They have both experienced intermittent connectivity issues from about the 1yr mark. I'd blame the ASUS board but I've had these on 3 different computers and they've done the same thing. Just randomly disappear.
I learned my lesson, only enterprise higher rated drives from here on out.
