    Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 59reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Does what it should do I am using this External HD with Time machine and it works great. 12/21/2012
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by PIECE OF TRASH DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!. Transfer a lot of information to this hd. Booted my computer and now it doesn't work and my information is all GONE!. Not the first from Western Digital. Bought several HDs from WD and had similar problems. WDs sound very cheap. But it is what it is: TRASH. This sure will be my last. DO NOT BUY FROM WESTERN DIGITAL! 08/08/2012
    Rated 2 out of 5★ by Did not work with MS backup until reformatted Even though WD marks this drive to be compatible with MS windows, I could not use it for backup. WD formatted the drive to old MSWindows XP, not the newer Vista/7 standard. Unfortunately, I had already been using the drive and had about one week's worth of information stored on the drive. Reformatting, per WD's website, would have wasted alot of time and my money. I wrote to WD about my dissatisfaction. They never wrote back.I guess they don't care about their customers. Thank goodness there are alternatives. I will never buy Western Digital products again. 02/16/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by works 'sometimes' some times it will work - most of the time I have to keep installing it. I will not trust my important files to this storage. Very slow transfering data. (USB 2) 12/20/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great value Great price for a 3TB drive,works flawlessly. 04/21/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Perfect for making movies. Before buying from Walmart i shopped around for the 3TB storage i needed, Walmart had the best price around. The hard drive is almost 3TB, it was actually 2 but still that's plenty of storage for making huge movies with a HD camcorder and storing school files. The read and write times are fast (i have 3.0 USB port) and i cant complain about a single thing. Over all if your looking for a good Hard drive with plenty of storage, you found the right one. 08/27/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Do not ship pc product in plastic bag Was unable to install product, external hard drive was shipped in an ineffective package. Product corrgated with packing material to protect product, i.e. bubble wrapping, peanuts, etc. 09/26/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Died after 3 weeks One of the folders became not accessible. Typical error for broken external drives. I'm going to exchange it, not giving up yet. 11/04/2013
