4 out of 5 stars   Reliable HDD
By KRO (Buffalo, NY) May 18, 2011
Review submitted for Western Digital My Book Studio 1TB external drive, Mac, e-label, auto backup, FW800 (WDBAAJ0010HSL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Install
Cons:
Other Comments: Bought this for my son whose previous external drive ate its lunch. These WD external HDDs are generally very reliable. I got this because of the WD name and FireWire 800 which is considerably faster than USB 2. You can actually do many tasks real time with an attached FireWire 800 device. Would purchase again.

4 out of 5 stars   Good, solid and quick backup!
By wt (Salt Lake City) May 05, 2010
Review submitted for Western Digital My Book Studio 1TB external drive, Mac, e-label, auto backup, FW800 (WDBAAJ0010HSL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast
Cons: Flimsy
Other Comments: Bought this to take advantage of the speed of my firewire 800 ports. I run Time Machine (not sure why WD even put the time and money into creating their own backup software) and having the extra speed means the drive isn't constantly running in the background as I work (which also taxes the cpu a bit). It backs up, stays on for a little bit and then goes back to sleep when not in use. It's also fairly quiet although I still think it's too loud when compared to my iMac.

4 out of 5 stars   WD Smartware Software
By Cassuallz (Chicago IL) May 04, 2010
Review submitted for Western Digital My Book Studio 1TB external drive, Mac, e-label, auto backup, FW800 (WDBAAJ0010HSL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Pre-formated for Mac, Firewire Connection, Highly Compatible, Fast, Reliable, Quiet, Easy To Install
Cons: Cant remove WD Smartware
Other Comments: First don't bother trying to remove the "WD Smartware" software. It is part of the firmware which is not user accessible, not even with Linux type utility software so save yourself the trouble since I, and many others have all ready tried. Western Digital has a Proprietary backup software of it's own which loads as a CD Rom Disc on your desktop. If you have Leopard or Snow Leopard you will have no use for the additional backup software since Leopard includes Time Machine. The WD Smartware can't be removed, ejected, or uninstalled it just sits there so get used to it. As long as you do not install the Smartware software it will not interfere with normal use on your Mac. The Hard Drive works very good in everything I have used it for. It quiet and very fast. I would recommed it if you can live with the fact of that WD Smartware disc always being on the desktop. P.S. There is one way not to see the WD Smartware disc which is to go into your Finder > Preferences > sidebar tab and un-check CD, DVD, iPods under devices.

Pros: Easy To Install
Cons: Annoying sound
Other Comments: It is an average product. Just don't like that WD Smartware VCD is alway mounted to my desktop. There is a a soft annoying sound everytime the disk is access. Good price, but I would go with a different version of the hardware. To soon to comment on reliability of the product.
