This review is from: WD My Book AV 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" DVR Expander WDBABT0010HBK-NESN Black
Pros: Worked out of the box with my Time Warner Cable issued Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HDC.
Cons: Broke without warning 3 months after purchase. Currently waiting for a new one from Western Digital.
Other Thoughts: Hard drives, as they hold important data, should never be this unreliable. Western Digital has not had a good history for me - this is the fifth Western Digital drive I've had fail within 2 years of purchase in the last 10 years.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD My Book 4TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Storage WDBACW0040HBK-NESN
Pros: Worked with my Time Warner Cable Scientific Atlantica Explorer 8300HDC box with no setup problems.
Cons: Has died 60 days after purchase. A few days ago my cable box stopped working - realized it would work/boot without this external drive plugged in. Plugged in external drive to my PC - recognized but cannot get through a disk format - hangs.
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty expensive item to stop working 30 days after the return period. Worse, an item you use to hold data is not something you want to be this unreliable. Luckily, the data in question was just TV shows but this is still pretty bad.READ FULL REVIEW
