These Drives Fail without Fail

I bought Two of these My Books to be used as backup drives. One of them failed after a year for no reason at all. I lost over 1.5 TB worth of data. My drives are encased in dust free cases and do not move about on my desk at all, so it definitely wasn't my use that caused it to fail. They come with … (View complete review)

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 withing 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

Exceptional Drive :D

First up this is my first purchase with flipkart and i gotta admit the delivery system is fantastic

i was supposed to get the drive on 14th but i got it on 9th wen i had ordered it on 5th. I took the COD option and it was good enough. Packaging is excellent and was filled wid bubble wraps :P

Now as for the drive :

Since i needed a 2tb drive i had two choices out of internal vs external.I went with external as it was nearly same as the internal one and i can take the drive to my frnz's home if needed.

Now in external i had 2 choices,

Stay away from this

I purchased this trusting the WD brand name. Huge mistake!!!
The drive is much slower than what is advertised and for some reason the USB 3.0 port has some or the other issue.

Unlike the Buffalo drive that I used before, this was very very fragile. I toppled my drive on my table (it did not fall in the floor) while using it and that was all that was needed to kill the drive. My hard earned money went down the drain and more importantly, I lost all my precious data.

My strongest advice to all the prospective buyers, stay away from this product. It is a slow and fragile piece of machine which

DO NOT BUY!!!!

The product reached inside the committed date from Flipkart, so that was great. It was well packed as the last thing you want with electronic items is to hear rattling inside.

It was fairly easy to plug and play.
Since i do not have USB 3.0, i could not test the speeds but the speed with USB 2.0 was just fine though a little on the slower side.
Plenty of free data space now which you expect from a 2TB HDD but still it was great but a little on the more expensive side, since I did not have the patience to wait for some one to get from the US.

Have had this for some 6 months now. Twice I have

Got corrupted/Not getting mounted after just 1 month without any reason !!!!

I have received this delivery within 3 days, however the product itself surprised me. I was accessing the HD in the morning and when I re-connect it again in the evening it is not getting connected with any of my laptops. Weird !!! I have kept the HD very carefully, I did not understand any reason apart from faulty defective product. I am very very unhappy and not recommending any WD product.

USB 3 + WD Value

O got this because I have a lot to store, and wanted to organize my media on my computer.

Packaging: Good. Shock proof, well protected.

Delivery: As promised on time.

Product: Build looks sturdy and there is sufficient space for cooling air flow. The disk powers up quickly. It comes bundled with useful security and backup software from WD. I have set the disk to power off after 20 minutes of disuse to save power and elongate its life. This I find is a very good feature.

As far as copying data is concerned it is much much faster than your USB2 hdds. For copying large files I got a speeds of

FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH WD

Well I was looking for a drive to backup my data & while searching flipkart I found this 2TB drive Reasonable.After ordering this drive it took 4&1/2 days for delivery(maybe due to Diwali).But it was nicely packed & safe.
Though it says 2TB it is giving me 1.81 TB of space after plugging it.It requires power supply,if u have power supply problems in ur locality,think twice before buying.It has nice software which is ready to take backup of ur files,it tells %age of drive which is full,its temperature,etc.Transfer speed for USB 2.0 reached max. of 29MB/s till now & for USB 3.0, it reached max.
