Worst external drive I have ever had

About Me Infrequent User
Brand new, first day copied 3 small files,worked good. The third day try to copy about 25GB data, during the process, give me a hardware failure error and then the drive no longer can be recognized. Be careful to use this drive, need to test it with large fake data, if you copy real data and partially copied over you have to pay your own money to get the files deleted which is very expensive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The best external harddrive I've ever invested in. With it's USB 3.0 I'm able to transfer movies 4 times faster. Not to mention the 2 way direction of uploading and downloading from the device. Very small and easy to travel with. It's 2TB capacity allows me to store all my files and then some. Excellent product from Western Digital!

Great HDD for storing all your stuff!
I personally use this HDD for storing my photos, my movies and basically all the stuff I care about. It is awesome that it can store up to 1.81 TB, which great amount of storage. I don't like the idea that I lose 200 GB, because they count in bytes the storage, but anyway. It is very good HDD!!!
