    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?)

    Rating (335 reviews):
    (3.6/5)
    Western Digital

    Exactly what I wanted - not really

    I purchased the WDG1U5000 as a backup to my existing iBook and my external 120GB SmartDisk Drive (which I also can't say enough about). I plugged in the 500GB, turned it on, my Mac found the drive and then I dragged and dropped 100GB of music and photos over my USB2.0 (took about 2/5hrs to copy). The process couldn't be easier or for a geek like me, more enjoyable.A great product, a great price and delivery was a snap - as usual, all from Amazon.Update - July 2007 - as time went on my digital capacity expanded and I was soon up to 125GB. When I went to add more music or photos to my hard drive, I noticed that my Mac would only display and allow me to use 149GB of my 500GB drive. I understand it has something to do with the formatting of the drive but after trying my best to fix it and trying to contact western digital multiple times - they offered ZERO help - I had to return it. Amazon was nice enough to take it back outside of policy...& I remain a highly... 5/5 Philly NW (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    4 and a half stars.

    I also have the Western Digital My Book Premium Drive 500gb and when it was time to add more space I decided that I didn't need Firewire/400 and backup software. Even though they look like the same drive physically, the "Essential" drive looks cheaper. Probably because of the lack of Firewire port, the essential is slightly smaller in volume. The Premium edition had nice a nice hard feel and rubber footing around the edges of the top, back and bottom of the unit. However, with the essential, there's only 2 rubber footing on the bottom, thus it just feels cheaper than the premium.With that in mind, I think it's still a better value than the premium, since you're getting the same storage, you save 40-50 bucks by not having Firewire and backup software.Performance-wise, my 2 mybooks have been performing just dandy. I've only had the essential for a couple of weeks, the premium one I've had for I think about 8 months. I use it to backup all my video, music and... 4/5 Jimmy Tran (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews, May 29, 2007

    This is my second one

    5/5 John S. Ruzicka (San Francisco, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 500 GB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive WDG1U5000 (Personal Computers) I spent the past year digitizing my CD collection and when I outgrew my 200 gig internal hard drive I decided to go the external route. The My Book was a good choice. The drive is extremely quiet, takes up very little space, and does not get hot in normal use. I really like that the drive is smart enough to automatically go into stand-by when you turn off your P.C.The first thing you will want to do if you buy one is to delete the junk software that comes preinstalled on the disc. The second thing is to reformat the drive to use the NTFS file system, which is more reilable than FAT 32.The drive is not a speed demon but is more than adequate for streaming music. I recently bought a second one to backup the first. Unless you need the Firewire port, the Essential Edition should be adequate.

    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
