    Very Poor Quality

    1/5 Jon A. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book Essential 500 GB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (Personal Computers) I don't use it because it doesn't have enough memory - your WD "MY BOOK ESSENTIALS" should have a minimum of 5 TBs along with a higher speed.... I was very disappointed in the old software which was provided. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 27, 2016

    Excellent!!

    5/5 José Mendoza - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book Essential 500 GB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (Personal Computers) High speed (USB 2.0) storage, a little bit big, but it can be used everywhere, you can have all your pictures, music and videos in one place!!

    WD My Book

    5/5 SidecarFlip - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book Essential 500 GB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (Personal Computers) I was a bit aprehensive about the longevity of the WD Mybook after reading reviews but no problems have surfaced in 2 plus years of 24/7 use as a backup storage device. It has functioned flawlessly.I also purchased a WD backup drive for my wife's computer and it came with automatic backup software that mine lacked, however, it's a simple matter to manually backup the files I deem important and not back up less important files. I actually prefer that method.Thanks WD for an excellent product. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2011

    Long lasting sidekick

    4/5 R. J. C. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book Essential 750 GB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (Personal Computers) Have used it for 8 years and still no problems! Had to replace the power cord but that was strictly the cat's fault and not a faulty product. Sure, I have several portable hard drives laying around but this one is the trusty sidekick that stands next to my computer speakers. Transfer time isn't bad because of the USB 2.0. I definitely got my money's worth out of this product and recommend Western Digital for all your digital storage problems. I would say the only negative is the external power source, but it's not a terribly big deal since I don't lug this (nor do I need to) around with my laptop.

    V2.0 Of The My Book Series Is Out - Will It Be More Reliable Than V1.0?

    [Update: 3/2009: It's been more than a year since I wrote this lengthy review and I wanted to return and let people know how these drives are performing.I have a total of ten of these drives - four the newer series referenced here, six the slightly older model that looks a bit different but is otherwise interchangeable. I am happy to report than only one drive suffered some intermittent failures in read/writing since purchase. No data was ever lost, but the problem was becoming annoying and I replaced it using their warranty service. I've had no drive failures otherwise and no data integrity problems. I find it important not to block the ventilation holes and am always on the lookout for any early signs of drive failure, such as ticking noises, grinding, or excessive drive whine, and have noted nothing thus far.Overall, I am fully satisfied with this drive series and believe WD is definitely proven competent in the external drive marketplace.]... 4/5 Phillip M.

    Great price, great performance, looks sleek to boot.

    I have been buying and using external harddrives for ages. When I shoot video, and do editing, I store the finished footage on these harddrives. When I shoot images and pictures I store backups of my raw files, and finished psds/jpg.Obviously, these files are very important to me, and thanks to past experience, I refuse to trust 1 drive to house all my important stuff.I owned another external harddrive, and it died, it was my incredible misfortune. I was switching to a new computer, and took the files off my harddrive, onto a new drive, (that I had for over a month and tested fine) and after my new computer arrived (and subsequently sold my previous computer) I went to backup my photos and the drive started smoking. I lost a whole trips worth of photos (40+gb) tons of panoramas (that I spent hours constructing) it all went to pot. I learned then, I'm never going to buy any other brand of external harddrive than a Western Digital, and I will always backup... 5/5 Jason (NC, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
