    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 59reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great 3Tb External Hard Drive & included software. As I have come to expect from Western Digital over many years of using their products, this one is first class in every way. Every thing was included for a quick installation of the 3Tb drive and the included backup software (on the drive) was easy to install. The USB2 cable was included. I have thousands of photos and many home recorded music files; using this drive gives me a feeling of confidence that I have a current backup copy. 07/13/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by I purchased the Western Digital My Book Essentials 3TB external drive for the purpose of backing up my video collection. So far the product has worked very well. For a few dollars more, I was able to purchase the 3TB from WalMart as compared to 1 and 2TB hard drives from other electronic stores. The value was exceptional! 10/17/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by i have three of them and i love it. i would recommend to anybody who is looking for a reliable external hard drive. 09/29/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by I love this device. I store alot of large photo files and it is very user friendly and has worked well with my Gateway laptop. I really like the fact that it almost installs itself. This is my 2nd WD backup and I will probably buy a 3rd.Ellen 10/19/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Easy to setup and works well for my intended purpose: backup of my pictures and documents. 09/04/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great product for lots and lots of storage I bought this product for my hd camcorder to transfer the video's onto this hard drive. My Hard drives on my computer were filling up pretty quick since the video's were recorded in hd video. So yes I recommend this product for anyone that needs storage. 06/16/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent product, the file security when disconnected is a very good feature 10/06/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good Buy This is a very good buy. If you want to get savvy you can delete all the WD stuff it comes preloaded with and hook it up to a netgear WIFI router with USB 3.0 ports (sold here on walmart.com e.g netgear) and have an ultra fast / ultra cheap personal data cloud for your entire house. Whatever your endgame is just make sure you have or can get a USB 3.0 interface to plug it into, the speed difference is jaw dropping. In other words "Great Buy!". 01/23/2013
