Customer Reviews of WD My Book 3TB External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 File Backup and Storage
like WD brand8/23/2013
IT died after 6 weeks8/11/2013
First one died after 6 weeks. 2nd one died after 2 weeks. On the third one now, all replaced by WD under warranty. Been a few months, so far no issues. Maybe it was just a faulty batch. Disappointing though. At least the warranty replacement procedure is easy.
3 TB External Hard Drive8/8/2013
I have been very pleased with the 3 TB Western Digital external hard drive I purchased from Datavis. It was shipped promptly and was easy to install. One feature I really like is the software that came with it, which automatically backs up any new or modified existing files to the drive. I would definitely purchase from this company again.
Great to work with7/23/2013
Great large 3tb hard driver7/10/2013
The drive has behaved faultlessly after I got the USB 3 interface running. On my computer it appears to be about 20% faster than a USB 2 drive when using it to do a complete computer backup.
Works as Advertised7/5/2013
Price is still a bit high but it works as advertised.

WD My Book 3TB External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.03/21/2013
This drive just do partial of the back up. It still have some files failed to back up.
Good as always.3/19/2013
I have been using My Book 1TB for more than 3 years and loved it without any problem. Bought one 3TB a few months ago and add 3rd one.
Less Than a Year and Starting to Act Buggy2/20/2013
I bought this 11 months ago and have only used it for every other month for system backups. It has now started freezing in the middle of transfers, and has to be unplugged and replugged in order for my Windows 7 Professional computer to recognize and access its contents. I'm now looking for another backup drive.
Great item for Backup & Large Storage1/26/2013
This USB drive's formatted capacity yielded over 2.7 TB of space. It allowed me to back up my computers as well as consolidate my smaller drives that made up my cloud storage, resulting in power savings since the others could be shut down. The FW update went fine but the SW update caused a problem which resulted in reinstalling the previous version, sent with the unit.
Western Digital drive from Datavis1/10/2013

Greate external hard drive12/13/2012
It is a great external hard drive and the shipping is so fast.
An amazing purchase.12/5/2012
Great quality status in the image of the rest of their MyBook series, never had an issue with a WD drive. I reccomend them to everyone.
Western Digital My Book Essentail11/28/2012
Good features are: Capacity (3TB) Speed (USB 3 or 2) extra features (automatic back up and monitoring my PC, Auto on/off Quiet operation I got at a good price cost/GB storage No real negatives - typical USB drive size, not really intended for use on the go, but easy enough to move from room to room
good for backup if you don't want to manipulate anything on the drive yourself; not good if you want to use it as an external drive which is my case.
Fast shipping, properly packed11/19/2012
While I have not opened or used it yet, I have confidence in Western Digital products. Thanks, Buydig.com.
Simple... great products are consistent, and long lasting.
Item recieved DOA11/15/2012
Recieved a faulty drive, lights came on drive wouldnt' power up. Tried with 2 different computers, 4 USB ports and when I contacted the seller they stated that I needed to contact the manufacturer. FORTUNATLY Western Digital has good customer service but we will see when my new drive arrives
Quiet. I am using as an external drive for monthly full backup purposes only.
The western digital hard drive is speedy, with tremendous capacity. Well worth the money. Would buy it again in a second. Great price and service from the seller.
I have been though two of these and both are now bricks. At first my windows 7 computer would not boot with them connected. Then they both just quit. Windows does not recognize them at all.
Large capacity, reliable. I have bought several of these.
Purchased as a backup device for PC's and works well. Smaller profile than my previous Western Digital drive.
This is a great USB Hard drive. It is amazingly fast and the installation is a breeze. My Windows system recognized it immediately and I was able to use it in seconds. The shipment was on time and price is pretty good. I would definately recomend this drive to anyone looking for storage.
Very fast and Cool 3TB9/16/2012
This drive is blazingly fast compared to USB 2.0. The case is just room temperature after occasional use for a half hour. Quad core computer with cheap USB 3.0 PCIe card, (2.5GB test file) 125MB/s write (245MB/s peak), 131MB/s read (151MB/s peak). With a newer i3 computer, 250MB/s to 350MB/s peak. Clearly windows is doing a good job of caching the data, as the drive light continues to flash for seconds after the transfer completes. (all computers used SSD main disk for data) Wierd power switch.
I got this product a week ago. It works fine so far.
Excellent Product -great value9/12/2012
The 3TB drive is great for backup with a very affordable price.
Finally a Superb Backup!9/9/2012
It was one of those plug-and-play situations offered in early PCs. All the time it took was in connecting the drive to the power source and the USB port. Now my .75 TB drive is backed up. The last time I backed up my computer was using about one hundred.1.44 MB floppies. Definitely easier now!
Love this hard drive.8/28/2012
So far so very good!
Nice drives that work with Windows XP.8/28/2012
Nice drivers that are very quiet and are happy with Windows XP.
Great Backup Drive8/24/2012
Great backup drive! I bought this to replace my 1TB WD external. Easy to use and works great with my Macbook Pro.
This is a great usb hard drive. It is super fast and very quiet. The shipment was fast as well. The price is very resonable as they have dropped over the years. I use it to backup all my data in case my hard drive crashes. Definately will buy a couple more.
Product delivered as promised and description was accurate.
Their products work well and the few times I have had problems the warranty replacement was quick and easily done.
Has been looking for something like this. Now I found it
