Much the best 1T external drive I've ever used.
Best 1T external drive I've used so far. The others have been big, clunky, and powered by transformers. By contrast, this little beauty by Western Digital is sweet. It draws its power from the USB port, it's light, it's silent. I've been using it constantly for four months to store my large raw photo files and my TIF files (very much larger still), and it's fast enough that there's so sense of having to wait inordinately, even with USB 2. I can only imagine using USB 3.

A great, quality drive for less
A great drive, just what I needed to expand my limited SSD. It has really fast read and write, so I can use it for video editing. I do find it a little inconvenient that it does have to be external, and waiting for the computer to recognize the drive takes a little more time than I would like, but it is great other than that.

This hard drive is a perfect back-up unit for your lap top.
As all Western Digital external hard drive this unit works well. No bad surprises. It is USB 3 compliant which is a nice feature. I use mine to back up my ASUS notebook using Acronis. It does the job without any problem. You can't beat the price.
