    Very Nice Drive 7/1/2013
    Chewy from Sylvania, OH  

    I bought the refurbished model and couldn't be happier. It was perfect, it lacked the box, but had a self sticking protective plastic wrap to protect the case. Aside from that, I can't tell that it's refurbished. I originally bought it to remove the drive and use in in my laptop, but I'm so happy with the unit as a whole that I'm using it as-is.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Western Digital Drive 4/25/2013

    This is a Western Digital refurbished portable hard drive, 1TB. I have used it for over a years now. The capacity is sufficient to hold a lot of files. The speed is good with its USB 3.0 connection. It is a little bulkier than some newer designs but I don't have complaints.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Good Portable Drive 4/24/2013

    I've only had it for a few weeks and haven't used it much. But it seems to work as it should. The case is smaller than on my other portable drive and has a nice texture to it. I hope to swap the hard drive inside with the hard drive in my laptop. But I don't know if that's feasible for me to do as I have read similar models use atypical design that makes it harder to separate the disk and the USB dongle.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    fantastic 4/17/2013
    lai from wilmington de  

    I am very satisfied with this external drive. Within 10 minutes of opening the package I was transferring pictures onto it. I have Windows 7. I opened the package up, undid the cord, plugged it into the computer and it took about 5 minutes to locate and install drivers and then I was good to go. I transferred over 300 pictures right away, lightning fast and it didn't even make a dent on the space available. It has 5-star performance, but a bonus is that it looks 5-star too. Very compact and stylish. It has a user manual installed with it that has more languages than I've seen on any other product, so if English isn't your first language you are set with instructions. The product includes 30 days of free telephone support during the warranty period that starts with the first call you make to tech support. Email support is free through the entire warranty period. I have not had to use tech support so it hasn't applied, but that is good to know.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    good little one. 4/17/2013
    babuofusa from Tampa, Florida  

    This is a good option if bought for external storage or back up. Little compact and good device. I wish it had a longer connecting cord but that doesn't make a difference.

    Good drive, but slow for large data 4/11/2013
    SG from Irving, TX  

    I have had this hard drive for more than two years and it works flawlessly. Although this drive works slow even with USB 3.0 interface while copying large number of files even if the total data to be copied is not very large in size. For copying larger sized files it is the ideal product for backing up your favorite movies.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No
