Best USb 3.0 hdd on sale today

I've been using this for over a year now. Didn't buy it from here but it surely is the best one out there now. Transfer rates can go upto 120-150 MBps when connected to a 3.0 port. On a 2.0 port, copying from the hdd is at around 30-35 MBps and copying to the hdd is at around 25-30 MBps. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to buy an external hdd.

Nice product from Western Digital....and it's faster with USB 3.0 rather than any other drive in the market. Does makes a little noise but it serves my purpose & that's why it's the best for me in an affordable price. Same as earlier, flipkart delivery system is awesome. Keep it up.....

Fine for the budget

Comes in a nice solid aluminium case with nice rubber wrapped ends for protection. The power supply should be better. Doesn't becomes too hot during operation. A VMF product. Speed is not outstanding but is OK(even in USB2.0).

Great Drive, Good Buy!

Great product to buy, very good value for money. Sturdy build and easy to handle, compact. Cable is somewhat short, I would have expected a longer cable, but overall a very good product. Access speeds while reading and writing are fantastic, and the drive is also very silent.

First I would like to pen down the Pros & Cons are being mentioned here under.
Pros: 1. HDD is very compact in size & very easy to carry out.
2.Value for money.
3.Good transfer speed(If your other device is supportive).
Cons:1.Not 500GB space(It's 465GB).
2.Gets heat-up very quickly.
3.Little late delivery.(Promised 2-3 Business days, but I got it on 5th day(including the ordering date) after placing order.)
I am yet to test USB3.0 functionality.

USB connection port devlops loose contact

Actually, I did not buy it from Flipkart. But still want to put up a user's review.
I am using it for the past 1 year and have been facing USB loose contact at the HDD end which causes disconnection. Every time I have to adjust the cable to get it reconnected and data losses.
WD should improve the pin connection at the HDD end.

Bad bad bad

Bought it from Flipkart 2 months back..and now the disk is dead... Take your chance if you want... Used repeatedly between Linux and Windows..that may have caused the problem..

MBR is lost..Cant access any partition..cant format...cant write any new partition table... The only hope is its still spinning and dont know if Flipkart gives international warranty..!!
