Reviewing this after extensive use. The product although a bit fragile can still last for long time with decent care. Am getting decent speed. Got this one in an unprotected manner, but no damages so I one can say it can take transit pressure. There were four anti skid dots pasted, which didn't last for long. The top cover is Matt finish, so can pick up dirt or sratch, but can we cleaned easily too.
I am using this external hard disk for more than 1.5years. It's really perfect till date. Most amazing is, it's copying speed, it's almost 1mbps every time which helped a lot to save time. Till now I did not face any problem. My last external hard-disk was made of Samsung and suddenly,one day, it was crashed. Hopefully I'll not face the same this time.
Not impressed by the quality of WD hard disk anymore. They used to be good but I think Seagate is better now. This is my last WD hard disk. This one just stopped working all of a sudden, just after 1.5 years and now I am trying to get it replaced. If you want to buy hard disks, just go for Seagate. WDs are no longer that good. While it was working, copy speed was good and the product quality is basic, with no bells and whistles.
Just take good care of price .product specs were awesome and dont allow the hard disk to fall down ior keep it in scooty with Drive cover box..kindly buy the drive and Covering box together with out that there can be much damage to drive if we throught the drive here and there and mosty chances of losing dat and corruption of data on falling of drive on ground.
take the best offer .beacuse the price is different in difeerent places .
It is going to be three years since I bought this hard drive. Still going strong. No problem whatsoever. I must have accidentally dropped it three to four times in these theee years. I use it to store basic backup for my documents and lots and lots of movie collection. So my usage is moderate, not rigorous.
It's been 1year Im using this WD 1TB harddisk.. within 3minths of my purchase I had to ask for replacement due to connecting issues.. That it stops connecting to laptops after using it for some months.. I lost all my imp data..
Anyway WD TEAM has replaced with another harddisk.. But I don't think it's a brand new one.. I think they replace with its refurbished ones.. And to my badluck the replaced harddisk also getting the same problem now.. It's not getting connected any laptops or computers..
If anyone is planning to purchase a harddisk, then go with SONY, DELL & SEAGATE.. but not WD..
Very good portable hard drive, handy and easy to use. I was bit tentative while ordering as I have never used WD product before. But now, after using it for more than a year, I can say that WD is one of the best brand to trust if you are looking to buy an external hard drive. It responds very quickly while plugging. Good data transfer speed. Highly recommended.
