About this book
“…a comprehensive resource for PC enthusiasts and professionals alike. Packed with the latest speeds and feeds, you’ll want to keep this book on-hand as an authoritative technology reference.” –Chris Angelini, Managing Editor, Tom’s Hardware   For 20 years, Upgrading and Repairing PCs has been the world’s #1 guide to PC hardware: the single source for reliable information on troubleshooting and fixing problems, adding hardware, optimizing performance, and building new PCs. Now, better than ever, this 20th Edition offers beefed-up coverage of the newest hardware innovations and maintenance techniques, plus more than 90 minutes of new DVD video.   Scott Mueller delivers practical answers about PC processors, motherboards, buses, BIOSes, memory, storage, video, audio, I/O, input devices, networks, Internet connectivity, power, and much more. You’ll find the industry’s best coverage of diagnostics, testing, and repair–plus cutting-edge discussions of improving performance via overclocking and other techniques.   Mueller has taught thousands of professionals in person and millions more through his books and videos–nobody knows more about keeping PCs running perfectly. Whether you’re a professional technician, a small business owner trying to save money, or a home PC enthusiast, this is the only PC hardware book you need!   NEW IN THIS EDITION The newest processors, including Intel’s 2nd generation Core i3, i5, i7 plus the Atom, and AMD’s new VISION series CPUs 3TB (and larger) disks, 4K sectoring, partition alignment, faster SATA disk interfaces, and SSD (Solid State Drive) hard drive replacements New firmware innovations, from full UEFI BIOS support to built-in motherboard flash BIOS upgrade utilities Integrated video and audio, including 5.1/7.1 surround sound, HDMI, and DisplayPort connections Updated PCI Express and Power Supply specifications for powering high-end video cards Emerging interfaces such as USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt Updated coverage of building PCs from scratch–from choosing and assembling hardware through BIOS setup and troubleshooting   ON THE DVD Get more than 90 minutes of up-to-the minute, studio quality how-to videos–all playable on your DVD player or computer! In this edition, Scott Mueller offers true insider information about several of the key components in a PC, including hard disk drives, power supplies, motherboards, and more.   You will see hard drives completely dissected–even see an open hard drive in operation–so you can observe exactly what happens under the covers. One of the most common causes of failure in modern motherboards, power supplies, and many other PC components are bad capacitors–otherwise known as the capacitor plague. Mueller will show several real-world examples of this “disease,” so you can easily identify and perhaps even repair the problem. Finally, because external hard drives are now commonly used for supplementary storage and backups, you’ll find a complete discussion of several alternatives on the market. This includes tips and tricks for building or assembling your own flexible, high performance and highly reliable external storage drives, with several examples shown. This DVD also contains the complete 19th edition of this book in printable form, plus extensive technical reference material, a comprehensive glossary, and more!

    Works with Wii U

    I ordered this hard drive to start a digital collection of Wii U games and it works well for that purpose. The drive wasn't even recognized with the included USB cable and required a Y-cable in order to be formatted and used. It has a tendency to go to sleep when not in use for a few minutes, as when using Netflix or Wii mode, but this isn't a problem during gameplay, where the drive is actively read and written to.I measured the read speed on PC at about 80mb/s (sequential) when using USB 3.0. Using the same USB 2.0 Y-cable connection Wii U uses, the speed dropped to 34mb/s for a sequential read and 23mb/s for a random read, both of which are faster than the 22.5mb/s speed of Wii U discs.In-game, I saw an average reduction in loading times of 6 seconds for Mariokart 8 tracks and 1-2 seconds for Pikmin 3 trials (there was no change in the initial game boot time in either case). In general, the drive is fast and performs better than using a disc, but it does... 5/5 Nerrel - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Defective Product

    1/5 Michael Rodrigues - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD 500GB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBUZG5000ABK-NESN (Personal Computers) When I had received this product, I was so happy to finally be able to plug it into my computer, and store all of my files. Only to find that the device couldn't be detected. I tried troubleshooting this for a couple of days. I even was on-call with a representative of Western Digital to figure out the problem, but even they couldn't help me. I will try to order one, one more time, to see if it was a one time defect.

    The "Clicking" Sound of Wasted Money

    1/5 Renaissance Man - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD 500GB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBUZG5000ABK-NESN (Personal Computers) I usually don't write reviews, but if I can prevent someone else from wasting their money, it will be worth it. I bought this item back in December, and it has already stopped working (now the end of June). I am a current medical student, and take care of my purchases. My computer, which I have had since 2008 (as well as this now useless hard drive) always stay on my desk. My room has full A/C and the item has never been dropped, nor has it gotten wet.I back up my Mac laptop every couple of weeks and today the process didn't work. The hard drive makes a "clicking" sound when I plug it in to any power source, and it no longer registers on my Macbook or my roommates PC. Looking online, this seems to be a sign of hard drive death. As a student I don't have $50 to spend every half year to keep my documents safe. I will never purchase another item from this company.

    Two Thumbs Down!

    1/5 TamiP - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wd Grip Pack for My Passport Ultra 1TB with USB 3.0 Cable, Grape (Personal Computers) A waste of money in my opinion. I thought it would be a silicone material to help keep a grip in the Passport and help buffer any bumps but it's just a cheap piece of semi hard, slick plastic. Unless you really want the color on your device for some reason I wouldn't buy it!If I could have left a review with 0 stars I would have.

    4/5 Xanthum Gum (Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wd Grip Pack for My Passport Ultra 1TB with USB 3.0 Cable, Smoke (Personal Computers) This is a gray bumper-type protector for the My Passport Ultra which includes a cable in the matching color. I initially purchased it because I was not sure if the My Passport Ultra drive came with the appropriate cable or not. I can say that it does come with the appropriate cable - this just adds the bumper which snaps around the drive and a color-matched cable. If you are going to be moving your Passport drive around a lot, I could see that the bumper would add some protection; if it is just sitting on your desk or in a drawer then it is probably not really needed...
