Beware the size is bigger than even an internal hard disk

i found this link under the portable external hard disk section, but this product is really not much portable.it is very bulky and requires external power supply from electric board. performane is excellent though no doubt but then having an internal hard disk is better.

Best Product in External HDD Category brought to you by Best Online Shopping Portal Flipkart

This is my 3rd Hard Disk of the same catagory and first ever purchase from Flipkart. Needless to say, WD has always been my favourite in the Hard Disk category and 3.0 USB adds value to it.

Positives:
1. Reduction in weight and size is really noteable.
2. Comes with 2 pin adapter an…

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.…

WD My Book Essential 3.5 Inch 1 TB External Hard Disk

I placed the order on 18th in the night at 3. Next day morning i got a call from the executive to confirm the order. On 20th morning at 10 i got the delivery boy standing out my door. He handed over a box. When i opened it. I saw the hard drive box sealed pack & covered with the protection plastic to prevent the damage. I opened the box & got 1 hard drive, 1 Adapter with one 3pin plug & Two 2 pin plugs as per your socket, The 3.0 USB cable which is compatible with 2.0 & 3.0 automatically & the easiest instruction manual. The hard drive looks great. The only problem is with the adapter's wall s

Great Looks, stays cool.

Firstly, great service from FLIPKART.
Decent hard drive..
Receiving 18-20 MB/s on USB 2.0
Still not checked on USB 3.0..but it's 10 times faster.
However, I would rate this product as excellent..
PROS:
Superb glossy finish, small, compact, decent performance (USB 2.0)
AWESOME on USB 3.0
CONS:
Little bit heavy, nothing else.

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 reply a

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 of the b

I am a Happy Customer

This was delivered to me in exactly 3 business days in a brand new sealed pack with safety measures to avoid damage to the product. The pricing is perfect.

Things to watch out for:
Though the claimed speed is 5Gbs/Sec, this can be achieved only if your PC has a USB 3.0 plus card. Best way to identify this is, if your USB port pin is blue in color then its 3 else its not.
Irrespective of the 5 Gbs speed, I love the product and believe it was a good buy! Thanks to FlipKart
