A lot of storage for a great price !
The packaging was minimal but sturdy. There's no unnecessary plastic or cardboard. I am using this drive on an older Mac as a jukebox and so far it works well. I simply plugged the power cable and the USB cable in and it popped up on the desktop immediately. Well that’s a Mac for you. It came preloaded with a bunch of back up software and was formatted for pc so I reformatted the drive. That only took a few minutes, very painless. A whole lot of storage for great price in a small foot print. You can watch my You Tube un-boxing of the Western Digital My Book Essential here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZzTEgl_5OA
