Ease of Use

I purchased the 3 TB hard drive due to the cost. Well it does work but is extremely! slow in the data transfer. It is hooked up to a 2.0 port directly connected to my computer (I-7 3.5 mgz, 32 gig ram and three internal 1 TB hard drives) so it is not my computer. It does do backups but does them extremely slow. If you do not mind this it is a good bargin.

-Gary M quote

Everything went smoothly at first and it seemed to be functioning properly. At first, it showed up as a drive and backed up the system, as expected. Then, it showed up as a drive, but my system said it needed to be formatted; but, it only showed 367 GB of space on the dirive. Then, it stopped showing on my pc altogether..

Don't buy

Owned less than two months and it quit working. I use many externals without issue. This one is junk so don't waste your money. Over 2tb of videos, music & pictures lost.

I got the 2TB version and it works fantastic with the Wii U. I've heard that other HDD that people have been trying with the Wii U have slight lag on start up (mostly WD, Seagate drives) but this one has zero lag on startup, it's fantastic! Also the blue led on the drive matches the Wii U's.
