    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?)

    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.

    I love them, that's why I'm buying another today

    5/5 D (Colorado, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book 1TB External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 File Backup and Storage (Personal Computers) I've purchased about 8 of these (1 tb, 2 tb and 4 tb) and all work perfectly and quickly except for one. About 7 years ago I was getting some messed up files (pictures, out of tens of thousands) on a 1tb I had used for 5 years maybe, and then slowly, week by week, month by month, more and more were getting messed up until I finally had to move over as many as I could save to another drive. (That was a PAIN!) But the other 7 of this My Book have all worked perfectly and with no problems with cords or anything else. I love them, that's why I'm buying another today, my son's is full, and he backs up his laptop every few weeks. I like this huge size more than the small ones, as they can't be brought along in a backpack to classes with ease, so they stay in the room and don't get lost or fall out! Mine just sits on the side of my desk and never moves, and I use it every day. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 19, 2017
