My Struggle:

Creator: Karl Ove Knausgaard | Fiction - 2014-05-27

Perhaps the most Proustian in the series, My Struggle: Book 3 gives us Knausgaard's vivid, technicolor recollections of childhood, his emerging self-understanding, and the multilayered nature of time's passing, memory, and existence.

Publisher: Macmillan

About this book
The third volume—the book that made Knausgaard a phenomenon in the United States—in the addictive New York Times bestselling seriesA family of four—mother, father, and two boys—move to the south coast of Norway, to a new house on a newly developed site. It is the early 1970s and the family's trajectory is upwardly mobile: the future seems limitless. In painstaking, sometimes self-lacerating detail, Karl Ove Knausgaard paints a world familiar to anyone who can recall the intensity and novelty of childhood experience, one in which children and adults lead parallel lives that never meet. Perhaps the most Proustian in the series, My Struggle: Book 3 gives us Knausgaard's vivid, technicolor recollections of childhood, his emerging self-understanding, and the multilayered nature of time's passing, memory, and existence.

    Drive works fine, but beware included utility software

    Based on the drive itself and the backup software, I would have given this product 5 stars--it is very quiet in operation, quiet enough to be left running full time on your desk. The easy-to-use included backup software can continually backup files each time there is a change or you add a new one (or you can choose to do periodic backups), and even automatically can keep up to 25 earlier versions of files that you've modified (you set the number archived). Why then only 3 stars? Because the drive comes with drive utility software that has a glitch. After installing the drive, before doing anything else, I ran the drive diagnostics; it passed the SMART Status and Quick Drive tests (both very quick to run), but about 30% of the way through failed the Complete Drive Test, which takes hours to run. I ran all the tests again, got identical results, then called WD tech support. Based on my results, they said the drive was defective, and that I should return it to Amazon, which I did... 3/5 Footprinter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Western Digital 2 TB USB 3.0 My Book Desktop External Hard Drive (WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN ) (Personal Computers) Works great,still going strong.Bought this for my Xbox One "because some smart guy thought it was great to put 500GB of space on a console where you have to download 30gb to 65gb a game not including updates" This hard drive worked great i plugged it up to the xbox it recognized it asked if i wanted to format it and if i wanted all future games to be sent to the hard drive.Took only a few minutes and i was done.The Hard Drive flashes when not operating sorta like a heart beat then regular flashes when on and operating.its quiet and fast i have no issues (excuse the wires in the pic lol), June 22, 2015

    just select 'Disable' and you'll be good to go

    5/5 Jamie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Western Digital 2 TB USB 3.0 My Book Desktop External Hard Drive (WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN ) (Personal Computers) I got the 2TB External Hard Drive for my Nintendo Wii U since 2TB is the maximum storage amount the console can support per drive (you can add two separate 2TB hard drives for 4TB in total). Works as it is offered to with no problems at all.Just go to the settings, data mangement, and then tap 'Format USB Storage Device' option and select your drive.The Wii U is also known for putting the drive into sleep mode whenever its not in use, sometimes this might cause games stored on it to run choppy as it waits for the drive to start back up again from not being run.While at the Data Management screen, just Press and hold down on the D-Pad for about half a secondWhile holding down down on the D-Pad, press and hold the + and - buttons and keep them pressed down until you see a prompt referring to the HDD sleep mode. Once the message appears, just select 'Disable' and you'll be good to go! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 25, 2016

    How to set up your WD My Book Essential 3TB 3.0 USB drive

    I have six of these drives. I have had no serious problems to date, the oldest I've owned for about four months now. I will return to edit this review should a drive fail in the future.UPDATE: I wrote the above in October 2011. Writing now in October 2012, I now have eight of these drives. No problems to date.SECOND UPDATE: Writing now in November 2013. I have nine of these drives at this point. No problems to date.THIRD UPDATE: Writing now in October 2014. Same nine drives. Still no problems to report.Here is my recommendation for how to set up the drive, out of the box. I've done this a bunch of times now, so I'm getting routine at it, and thought I'd write it out for others.Some caveats, for what it might be worth:--I am running Windows 7 64-bit.--I use both 3.0 and 2.0 connectivity, depending on the computer I hook these up to.--I have no use for the included backup software, so I can't speak to that.

    BEWARE: Unstable USB plug! Yes, it IS that sensitive to movement.

    I can't add much to the review made by INGE STUBDAL except to resoundingly second the hundreds of agreements made by other buyers to that review AND to say that unlike INGE, something similar has happened before with 3+ other WD products--all WD Elements. Though I was careful with them, not plugging/unplugging, they sat on a desk, etc., I blamed it being that particular drive & maybe I wasn't as careful as I thought--after reading an article on WD site while troubleshooting ("How to eliminate potential problems on USB Powered Drives")Despite my reservations, at the time My Book (&WD) had SO many positive reviews, I gave in & bought one when it was on sale. With extra babying & NEVER unplugging cords from the drive, it LASTED 3 YRS. Now it's VERY temperamental as if there's a short at the drive connection, just from getting moved around on the desk for dusting and that type thing.Thankfully, I learned from past mistakes & also had been backing up data to... 1/5 LKD (South) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
