Excellent Drive I am very satisfied with this external drive. Within 10 minutes of opening the package I was transferring pictures onto it. I have Windows 7. I opened the package up, undid the cord, plugged it into the computer and it took about 5 minutes to locate and install drivers and then I was good to go. I transferred over 300 pictures right away, lightning fast and it didn't even make a dent on the space available. It has 5-star performance, but a bonus is that it looks 5-star too. Very compact and stylish. It has a user manual installed with it that has more languages than I've seen on any other product, so if English isn't your first language you are set with instructions. The product includes 30 days of free telephone support during the warranty period that starts with the first call you make to tech support. Email support is free through the entire warranty period. I have not had to use tech support so it hasn't applied, but that is good to know.

Western Digital 1TB 3.0

by Branden Lucero on 4/18/2012

first things first, FORMAT this HDD. there are unnecessary files that you don't need that could interfere with your PC down the road [leading to the dreadful "format now" message with your information already stored on it.] i am running this at usb 2.0 as the motherboard does not support 3.0. so far, works great, with no complains and does exactly what i wanted it to do [using this as a back up to move files off internal HDD]
