Build

When you are about to spend cash to buy something, looks do matter. My Book Essential hard disk sports a polished look which is quite elegant and distinct.

The WD logo crafted in the front of the drive adds a nice touch to the design of this drive. A white LED right above the WD logo indicates data transfer activities and power supply.

Perhaps the most downloaded data in the world is entertainment and music.

Equipped with the SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the WD hard disk provides you with data transfer speeds up to 4.8 Gbps which is 3 times the transfer speed that you get with a USB 2.0 connectivity. You can transfer a DVD movie in about 5 minutes instead of 15 minutes it takes with the USB 2.0. Backward compatible with USB 2.0, you can connect the WD drive to devices which are compatible only with USB 2.0 as well.

Special features

WD My Book Essential hard drive provides you with safety and security features for all the information that you store in the drive.

Good but search for other options aswell

I bought this 1TB disk from Flipkart in May 2012. (I thought of buying a 1TB disk from US but that will not give me warranty)
I am using this as a backup drive since last 6months. Storing my non-active content (like bulk movies, TV shows, video songs, photographs, etc) It does the job very well.…

Horrible after sales experience

I have purchased WD My Book Essential 3.5 inch 1 TB External Hard Disk (Black). My AC adapted stopped working within a month so I raised a complain for replacement under warranty.

The Western Digital customer care was always busy and I have to wait on hold for couple of hours which is ridiculous & no Western Digital support agent was providing any confirm information. Each time They are saying me to wait till this week as my adapter is not available. For two months they gave me the same reason. When I tried to launch complaint via email provided on Western Digital web site, I received…

THANKS FLIPKART

First, the packaging. Western Digital (WD) does an impressive job of securely packaging this hard drive with a minimal amount of waste. There's no unnecessary plastic or cardboard.

This 2 TB drive has to be plugged into the wall socket as well as powered with a USB cable. This My Book Essential External Hard Drive has an impressively long power cable. WD figures the customer is smart enough not to accidentally strangle themselves with a long power cord. So many products I buy have a cord that is so short as to make the item almost unusable. 5 stars to WD for trusting the intelligence …

5. Elegant Looks.
6. Lighter than it looks.

Cons:
1. Power cable is bit thinner.

P.S.: Got it a bit cheaper than the above mentioned price.

My product doesn't gets heated up, the temp. rise obvious and should not create any fuss. Just keep your disk at a well ventilated place to avoid over heating.

Since nowadays a lot of options are available for this price range, please validate your choice before…
