have used several WD hard drives in the past, and I have found them to be bullet-proof relative to the various brands I have tried that failed unexpectedly. The most pleasant surprise was the tiny footprint. It's small enough to be portable for travel, which I had not realized when I ordered. The only downside is that the price is higher than that of a comparable USB 2.0 HD, but if you have USB 3.0, you will appreciate the higher speed.
What a great USB Hard Drive. It is pretty fast and lots of storage space for videos, pictures and anything else you want to put on it. I also use it to back up my son's PC and my Wife's laptop. The price is pretty reasonable and the shipment was on time.
