    Perfect for use with Dish Network DVR 722 receiver

    This Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB drive deserves every one of those 5 stars. I have used this drive for 2 purposes: One for the usual purpose of backing up information from a computer and also as an external hard drive extension for the Dish Network DVR 722 receiver. With both of these uses, it worked flawlessly.I am going to focus on how it works with the Dish Network DVR because more and more people are buying external hard drives for this purpose and not many (if any) had reviewed this particular size when I purchased mine a month ago so I was unsure of how it would work. Dish Network states that the maximum external drive size that will work with their receivers is 750GB. That is typically true, except in the case of this Western Digital My Book. The reason for that is simply because most 1TB drives actually have 2 drives within one case. The MyBook only pulls from one drive inside of its case that does hold 1TB. The DVRs can not recognize 2 drives at... 5/5 Dr. Holly (USA - Southerner) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    An excellent device for creating backups. WDH1U10000N

    I have been using two of these devices at work to perform weekly backups on about fifteen Linux (Intel) computers for nearly four months. I first had to reformat them to a ext3 Linux file system. After that, literally, plug and play for our Red Hat boxes. I cannot speak for the speed, with most backups, who cares how fast, if they are completed without errors and the backup device is reliable. What impressed me was / is the durability of these things. I have connected and disconnected this drive many times (500+?) to computers that were powered up with no problems. The connectors seem rugged, often I need (in a hurry) to carry the drive around with the power adapter dangling (not recommended). The backups we do, verify the checksum after a backup and so far have shown zero (0) errors. I ordered one of these today so that I could use it at my home to back up my two Win-XP machines and my one XP/Linux notebook computer. I gave the 'Software' rating five stars only because no software is... 5/5 Ken M (Oxnard, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    One of the better ones around...

    Design & PortabilityI had 2 external HD's, which were 250GB and 150GB. It was in two different enclosures, so where ever I went, it was a real hassle carrying two HD's. MyBook is pretty compact with 1TB platter inside, helps slimming the width. Its piano black enclosure is really slick in HD design. I would give this HD the best design in its category. Very simplistic, no buttons, small slit of blue LED in front.Out of the boxEverything was packed, there were no mounting the HD inside the enclosure needed, unlike my older HD's. I just had to plug and play, it was that easy!PerformanceI have used this for over a month and its performance is average. The specs is on the HD is pretty fast with 7200 rpm and 16MB buffer speed.

    Fits right in: Takes no more space than a paperback book. Collect two or more and they nest neatly together like volumes on a shelf.
    Our environmentally-friendly drive is designed to save power by going into standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity.
    Installation is a snap because you don't really install this drive, you just plug it in and it's ready to use.

    Beware of WD's SmartWare software!!

    BUYER BEWARE....This is a great hard drive, except for one fatal issue. Western Digital includes their backup software, "SmartWare" on this drive. That's normally not an issue, you reformat and partition the drive and it's gone. However, WD included a special virtual CD (VCD) partition as part of the enclosure or firmware, which is NOT accessible to the user. I've tried all the utilities in OS X, Windows, and Ubuntu Linux to destroy this VCD, but no luck. I contacted Western Digital inquiring about a removal utility or firmware flash, and they gave me a run around answer and basically said no, we have no plans to do that.The VCD automatically mounts on your machine when the drive is inserted, which gets annoying very quickly. I found a workaround in OS X and Windows, to keep the VCD partition from mounting, but it shouldn't have to be this way.If you've ever had to deal with the horrid U3 software on a SanDisk flash drive, then you'll know what I'm... 4/5 ACL (East Coast, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    OK drive, crappy software

    The Good:Silent - no fan. No need in fan either - it doesn't get that hot, just warm plastic "book covers" and warm air coming out of the grill.Crappy backup software CAN be removed.2 years warranty at the time of purchase March 2011.Doesn't cost a fortune. I couldn't find anything cheaper AND with warranty longer than 1 year from reputable brands - it's either long warranty or low price.The Bad:Junk sofware that needs to be removed and preferably with reformatting (See below). Not everybody can format HDD and then locate and set up a decent backup freeware.The Ugly:Book-shaped case with blinding white lights. Lights shine like halogen headlights - who needs this? Book shape is obsolete - nobody will place it on bookshelf between the books (it needs some room around it for heat dissipation). Besides, the "book" isn't quite stable in vertical position. When it turns on, it makes buzzing sound like a wasp... 4/5 Alm - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    I don't understand what people's problem was.

    5/5 Wesley G Brodsky - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book Essential 1 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (Personal Computers) I don't understand what people's problem was. When I first plugged it in, it came up like any other hard drive; and I could copy to, rename, and copy from whatever files I wanted. No password, no nuttin. Maybe they changed the software since these folks used it. It did not see any "SmartWare" on the drive. From other user's comments, I would not have used it if it was there.
