    The book that keeps on giving... TILL IT STOPS!!

    ADDENDUM: We have four of these - the one holding my backup of photography and other important items simply DIED. The head crashed onto the disk, making it impossible to retrieve any data. YES I know I should have had TWO backups of everything, and now I do. But I've lost a lot of precious files. Also, it was the NEWEST one of these which died!!! The older ones are still working. I have switched to Seagate Free Agent PRO drives at the suggestion of the company I had trying to recover my data. These drives are cheaper AND offer automatic backups! So, if I could, I'd change the stars here to ONE. And warn everyone, don't rely on any ONE drive for a backup if you have files you really don't want to lose. I'm still using the My Books we have, but have duplicated the files onto the Seagates. This way if any one drive dies, I'll still have my files elsewhere. A HARD LESSON LEARNED. Here is my original review unchanged:Like another reviewer, this is my third "My... 4/5 Caraleisa (Alamogordo, NM) - See all my reviews, February 11, 2008

    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.

    Real Plug & Play - Love MyBook!

    5/5 iPosty (East Valley, AZ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Western Digital My Book Premium 500GB USB/FW 400 Ext Hard Drive (Electronics) You can disregard all the posts complaining of issues sharing this device over your network, or not being able to plug them into a power-strip. I'm running two of them side-by-side, via a USB hub, networked, powered by a power-strip, and they work just fine.. and I'm purchasing a 3rd for a back-up in the next week or so..They plug in easily, are quickly recognized by the PC, can be reformatted NTFS, and then are just ready go to.Some people complaining of slow data transfer may be running PCs with older versions of USB or simply have slow PCs. Yes, USB is slower than say SCSI or attached network drives, but it's not as slow as some people are claiming so I believe that's their own hardware shortcoming.

    Great Short Term Storage

    My first and last WD product.It worked great out of the box, no setup--plug and play.It started being unstable after a few months. Sometimes would fail to mount, then started 'losing' files.By six months it would unmount spontaneously and erratically--would disappear from the desktop. Turning it off and on would bring it back. A few months later it started making screeching noise and before I could order a replacement and transfer 400+ Gigs of files it died.Will not mount even with Disk Utility or Disk Warrior. Recovery software such as Data Rescue cannot find catalog so can only recover fragments of files.In other words I have 400 gigs of data that is intact but inaccessible due to a catalog error on the drive.No information I can find has been able to tell me where to look for the catalog info on the drive.WD said that they would replace the drive. Whoopee! What about my data.We are... 1/5 Carlos Brillig - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Good drive, MISERABLE custom service.

    The drive itself performs just fine for what I'm using it for, which is mostly multi-media storage. The drive comes with USB or Firewire options and includes a cable for both. HOWEVER, many of the FireWire cables have a flaw and will not work as it certainly did not for me. WD will have a link on their website when you register the drive to request a replacement cable. I figured easy enough.I received an email stating that the replacement cable was sent on the 1st of May. I waited and waited and after nearly 3 weeks, still no cable. I was using the drive with USB so wasn't in a huge rush about the cable. I used their web customer service request page to ask about the cable and whether they could verify my cable was sent and to provide a tracking number. A few days later I had received nothing from them so went to the web page to check there for an update. The query was updated to an "escalated" status, but that was it. I figured they were checking into it and gave them... 3/5 Steven K. Szudzik (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews, June 1, 2007
