Item came just as described. It was easy to plug in and use immediate. This is my 3rd WD external drive and I look forward to filling it up with lots of good stuff!
Only at 1Gb/sec transfer rate
Compare to USB 3.0 spec of 5Gb/sec, this hard drive is only transferring at 1Gb/sec. I was at least expecting 2.5Gb/sec since that's how fast my Buffalo drive performs.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hard drives keep getting better!
from Las Vegas, NV
Good product overall. I just wish the on/off button was a switch, it's just a small gripe.
This external drive is awesome I only buy Western Digital and the price could not be beat.
from Homestead FL
No complaints, only extreme praise for pricing, usage and capacity
Liked the unit, but - read the comments.

I bought this intending to backup 3 different PCs - 2 Windows 7 and 1 XP SP3. Worked easily and flawlessly. However, plastic case was severely gouged in new, shrink wrapped box. Seller confirmed it was not a refurb, but it looked like it to me. Now, I need to erase everything, send it back, and redo the backups, because I'm concerned about the reliability of the unit, given the scratches, that it might be a refurb, or otherwise compromised with drops or other mishandling.
Western Digital is the best!
from Southeast Kansas
I bought this at a great price, paid a bit more than a similar Seagate product that was going for $20 or so cheaper at the time but I always have the best luck with Western Digital. I already had a 2TB My Book when I bought this and loved it so much and saw this 4TB for a great price so had to have it. Great build quality, and USB3 speed is very fast. Works perfect, couldn't have asked for better, highly recommended!
