I bought this hard drive to back up my laptop before re-installing Windows & on it. The hard drive was inexpensive and has more storage capacity than my laptop does. On the other hand, I noticed that even empty this 1 TB hard drive actually only holds 931 GB, roughly a 10% difference (1 TB = 1024 GB). I know that partition formatting takes up some of the space, but an empty drive should not already be 9.1% full. This device is clearly on the lower end of the quality scale for storage devices of its size. But at the end of the day it still does what I bought it for!
I have always had a good experience with WD hard drives they are a good price to performance product.This usb external 1TB was easy to set up and seems to work very well.As always time will tell.WD is my favorite hard drive to use in pc's I build.
I have owned about 5 of these over the past 3 years. Started with 500GB and now they are up to 3TB. I have had no problems from any of them. The only thing that changed through the years, other than memory capacity, has been the design of the outside enclosure. My original was a metal casing and now it is plastic. It is still tough and durable. I would highly recommend this to anyone and I have bought them for friends as gifts. I have fully loaded 3 of these and they keep on kicking.
This makes seven portable hard drives I've purchased for work and/or home. The Western Digitals always perform great. This one I bought to use as a backup drive for the ole lady's laptop running windows 7 and so far it's working flawlessly. It reads and writes very fast, very low noise (I had to turn it torwards me to see the light and make sure!) All in all a great buy!
