Most Liked Positive Review

 

Works Great

Plug and Play. It comes as a FAT32 format with a collection of software. I use it with an old Macintosh and PCs with a USB 2 connection. Although the Mac recognizes the FAT32 format, I reformatted to ExFAT with the Mac's Dick Utility. No problems. External case seems slightly more rugged than my older portable drives of a different brand. If you need supporting software, it's available on Western Digital's web site; so nothing is permanently lost if you reformat the drive.

not very durable

This drive is fine, but my wife knocked it off the table, a fall of 29", and the drive can no longer be mounted. I would recommend the Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 instead. It's a little bigger, but you can drive your tank over it and it should be fine.

Use for a Backup for Years of Family Pictures, Video's and other Doccumentation. I try to keep two of these "syncronized" for safety. Would be nice if WD Smartware (included) would preform that task for me!!

I've now got 10 of these drives and (fingers crossed) no fails. I can't say the same for G-Raid or LaCie and those two cost twice as much.
