Another great external HD


from KY  -  Casual user

Although I could do without WD's software for my type of use, the HD does do exactly what it is supposed to do; back up and store my photos. I will not hesitate to buy another one for my Mac when this one is full. I have two others for PC's that are a few years older and they are doing just fine as well.
