DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I used this hard drive to back up my I-mac using time machine. I have hard drives accidently unplug or disconnect from the computer with out being ejected properly and they all manage to be ok. . So while my computer was backing up, we had a brown out and my computer shut off. I booted up my computer again, and the hard drive wouldn't mount. I literally used this hard drive for 3 days. I called up WD Support and they were awful and told me the Hard Drive was fried and can not be fixed. Thank goodness I had a back up of my drive but DO NOT buy any hard drives from Western Digital. I learned my lesson. They are cheaply made pieces of CRAP.

-David quote

With a whopping 3TB is has plenty of space for all your movies, music, pictures, and files. When it gets full the searching takes a few seconds but it's nice to be able to keep everything in one place.
