    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..!!

    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.

    Compact Surprise

    The moment I opened the packaging I was surprised to see the dimensions of this drive. It is a bit thicker than other offerings but had bought this to be plugged in permanently with my desktop so it wasn't a bother. Others who want it for portable use and carry slim laptop sleeves take a note. The thickness will hamper your carrying convenience.

    Otherwise a well built product. Has a nice White Coloured indication light which is tucked away at the back and will not distract you every time it ...

    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.
