    Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 39reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by good product so far this products seems to be doing what I expect but I'm still learning how to operate this product a little at a time . 01/07/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by I found that I did not need this so it was returned. I do have a 500 GB and it is great. I feel comfortable knowing my computer is being backed up. 10/28/2012
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by I returned it unused I returned the Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB not because of any problem with it but because I decided it was cheaper and better to make my own extern hard drive. Buy a hard drive and an encloser and make your own. That way you know what you have for a hard drive. 06/14/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by well, I was wanting the WD avs for comcast but... this is pretty good if you have a terra byte or less for backing up! don't know how long the drive will last, Western Digital has a bad rep on their hard drives as far as I'm concerned....but we will see. I'm gonna leave it open and keep it for now! 07/09/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by This hard drive was easy to set up, and is very easy to use. It automatically backs up anything I add to my computer. Such as photos, music, or documents. It has enough space to last me for a very long time. 12/20/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by This is a great product! Great product! I am using this with my Dish Hopper adding 1TB more to the 2TB that the Hopper has. Just plug it into the USB port on the rear of the Hopper and away you go. Nothing else to do just follow the instructions with your Dish product. Will work on all the Dish receivers as well. 01/04/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by my book actually my3rd, simple to use I love this. I double back up all my pictures and family videos. I have never had a problem with these. One for daily one for edited and one for every few months kept elsewhere. A bit much but I never want to loose my photos. 01/03/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great purchase I purchased this unit September of 2012 and I back up all my important information in seconds. I would purchase another one if needed. 12/10/2013
