Western Digital's My Book Home is the latest evolution in their long history of back up devices. This 320GB drive has a triple interface for maximum connectivity. The USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 interfaces allow you to connect to virtually any modern Mac or PC. If you need maximum data transfer rates then you can attach the drive to your system through the eSATA interface.

A capacity gauge on the front panel lets you know how much room you have left on the drive when it is connected to either a USB or FireWire port. The rest of the housing is designed to vent heat away from the drive to keep it cool and save your data. The auto standby mode will save your power bill by kicking in after 10 minutes of inactivity but will be ready to spring back into action immediately.

  • newegg High Performance Hard Drive The high performance 7200 RPM, 320GB hard drive stores your movies, music, applications and documents for easy sharing with your friends and is also perfect for backing up your system.
  • newegg Triple Interfaces The Western Digital My Book Home (Model WDH1CS3200N) external hard drive combines three industry-leading external hard drive interfaces (IEEE 1394a, eSATA and USB 2.0) for maximum performance and universal connectivity.

Works Great 2/5/2009 7:57:30 AM

Pros: Worked right out of the box. the extra software was no big deal, I just deleted it after hooking up. It doesnt make any noise and is relatively fast.

Cons: The cord they give you is no that long, so I ordered a longer one as well just in case. However, it was long enough, so no harm done.

Overall Review: I like that it has a 16 mb cache. I dont know if other WD have that feature, but its deffinately a nice feature to have.

Pros: Works excellently. Wiped the drive, erasing the pointless WD software and formatted it as Ext3. Works great as a drive, cool, quiet, and fast. USB 2.0 interface works great. Never had any trouble.

Cons: None. Might want to trash the useless software that comes with it, but that's just my personal opinion. Also, NTFS is a terrible filesystem to use, but most users use Windows.

Overall Review: Great drive, works fine. Hasn't died, owned it for about 3 months now.

Pros: It looks ok

Cons: It died after copying 2gb to it. Basically it lasted for less than an hour, and I was never able to turn it back on.

Overall Review: I bought the 160 passbook as a replacement and it seems to be functioning alright.

Great Hard Drive 6/6/2008 12:03:26 PM

Pros: Very easy to use and setup. I have never had any problems with heat. Stays ice and cool for the most part

Cons: The software from WD. It did not preform the way I needed it to. Some may like it though I use another for it purpose.

Overall Review: I formated the drive and use firewire and get a drive letter on my computer.

Works as should.. 6/4/2008 6:18:47 PM

Pros: I ordered over 6 of these (4 from Newegg) and no problems ever.. I use the USB interface without issues..

Cons: Gets a little hot after while.. Needs a little fan.. Needs the capacity gauge on the front.. White LEDs are a nice different touch..

Works OK if you don't mind USB 5/8/2008 6:49:20 AM

Pros: This drive is affordable, has a cool white light on the front that looks a bit like night rider when the drive is in use (It goes back and forth). It comes with everything you need to hook it up to Firewire or USB.

Cons: I have 2 fire wire cards in my PC and use several Firewire drives. I bought this drive as a secondary photo backup unit for my wedding photography business (we keep two copies of everything). This drive had all kinds of errors in firewire mode, and only works in USB 2.0 Mode, which is much slower, of course. Since I am copying about 290 GB at a time, it takes about 3 hours or more to copy the data using USB, where it would have taken about 40 mins using Firewire... Oh Well.

Overall Review: despite my frustration with the firewire situation, this drive works fine and serves its purpose well. for the most part it is going to be in storage at another location as it is archival only.

Minor problems 4/28/2008 5:45:42 PM

Pros: It works as storage. eSATA and FireWire modes are quite fast.

Cons: The sleep mode is annoying. It's barely noticable if used as a backup drive though.

Overall Review: I wouldn't use this for a second HD, but as a backup it works very well. It looks good on your desk (esp with multiples of them) and has eSATA.
