    Ideal, but for a fatal design flaw

    This product was a single design decision away from getting five stars. It is inexpensive and works well. The design decision that breaks it is what happens if it stops working well.The drive has an unreliable USB connection on the back. I think it's a USB 3.0 micro type B jack, which is standard, but basically all mini and micro USB connectors are under-engineered and prone to failure. So if you don't treat it like a pint of nitroglycerine, your drive might just stop working. That seems to be a common problem. This, however, is not the fatal design flaw, because if that were the entire story, you could just take it apart, pull out the drive, use another adapter to plug it into your computer and be back in business. But you can't do that. It appears that WD drives that come with their Smartware are hardware encrypted whether you use a password or not.WD argues that this prevents a thief, even if you don't use a password, from removing the drive from the... 2/5 Duane A.

    WORKS GREAT FOR XBOX ONE!!!

    5/5 3tch3r (Michigan) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Western Digital 3 TB USB 3.0 My Book Desktop External Hard Drive (WDBFJK0030HBK-NESN) (Personal Computers) I bought this for my xbox ONE since the internal HDD is only 500gb. I transferred all my games over to this HDD and they play and load from the external HDD just as fast if not a bit faster. Plus it leaves open my internal HDD for applications such as, achievements, GameDVR, twitch, ect...so they load much faster while playing a game at the same time!!! No installation for xbox ONE just plug in seconds later the xbox ONE will pick it up and ask you to format it. Format it and name your new HDD and enjoy!!, June 18, 2015

    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?)
