solid external hdd 10/3/2013 12:04:49 AM

Pros: This is a great little drive for the money. It's still working 4 years later. Nowadays I prefer one 2.5mm external enclosure to swap out all my HDDs. This of course isn't always the safest approach!

Cons: It isn't a SSD

Working great w/softmodded Wii 11/16/2009 10:04:05 AM

Pros: Nothing incredible beyond what other similar drives offer... slim package, USB powered, quiet, reliable thus far.

Cons: Would have rather picked it up in white, but the blue model blue had a much better price. (I'm stretching for something here...)

Overall Review: I've been using this drive for almost 4 months now via USB Loader GX on a softmodded Wii system. It has done everything I've asked of it without issue. I can't comment on any included software (was there any? I reformatted the drive minutes after opening the container...) or portable durability of the drive. It sits in my entertainment center and only moves on the rare occasion I need to hook it up to a PC. Drive has been powered up and down at least once a day since purchase, some times more often without issue. I've already recommended this drive to a number of friends for this purpose.

DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY 10/27/2009 7:19:19 PM

Pros: Nothing at all

Cons: I received this item as a return because the first one had the click of death. Well i received this one and straight from the box to my computer and it has the click of death. I thought the first one might be a fluke...a fluke doesnt happen twice in a row. This is complete junk. Dont waist your money. Now i am out an extra x2 shipping costs for this junk.

Overall Review: DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY

Pros: Very nice piece of equipment. Great way to transfer large file folders between non-networked computers (and store things too!).

Cons: Wish the resident software folders didn't take so much territory in the Explorer listing. A little confusing why there are so may folders!

click...click...click 10/15/2009 6:54:20 AM

Pros: Its blue

Cons: plugged it into the computer and hear a clicking sound. Tried it with my laptop with the same thing. Neither computer will reconize it

Overall Review: I am getting an exchange not a refund. hopefully this was just a random issue.

Great, until 6 mos later... 9/26/2009 2:52:20 PM

Pros: decent speed, portability is convenient, everything seemed perfect...

Cons: UNTIL TODAY. I have actually owned the pink version of this one since February 2009 (today I looked and newegg lists the product as deactivated) It all of the sudden stopped reading...it makes a clicking noise and it does not pull up on any computer...I don't use it that much and I've never dropped it. I know hard drives are somewhat unpredictable in their lifespan, but 7 mos?? come on.

Overall Review: Hopefully, WD will send me a replacement.

Ok when it works 9/13/2009 5:56:57 PM

Pros: Fast file transers, seemed sturdy and stable

Cons: After nearly a year of using it, it started acting up on me. Suddenly it wouldn't get recognized by my pc. I would move the USB cable a bit and it would power up... sometimes.
Good thing I have transferred all the files on my laptop already.

Overall Review: WD website was fantastic. Didn't buy a warranty plan at the store but WD still has this thing under warranty. They are in the process of sending me another one and all I have to do is RMA this defective one as soon as I receive it.
