      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 rea...

      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...

      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 a...

      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.

      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.

      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 th...

      WD !!! VALUE FOR MONEY

      First of all thanks to Flipkart & Kudos to them for their awesome customer service, lightening fast delivery and awesome packaging.
