Feature: WD 2TB USB External Hard Drives
Overall WD 2TB External Hard Drive working fine.
Overall I am pleased with the drive. I have used it to backup 4 different laptops and it worked flawlessly on XP, Vista, and Win 7. I did not realize when I bought the system that it does not backup your system files with the included software, but only your e-mail, docs, pictures, videos, etc.
Plenty of room on the drive to do that, but the software does not provide that option. I was able to manually copy files to the drive outside of the backup software, so it is probably possible to do a full system backup with different software
I was sure about WD 2TB USB External Hard Drives this when I ordered it. I use it for backing up my internal hard drive. It is the fastest 2TB USB External Hard Drives I have used. It went from 2 hours to 40 min.
Received the product quickly and it installed just as it should. Currently working fine.
This drive is 2TB USB External Hard Drives in size and once the USB 3.0 PCIe controller is installed it works as fast as my USB External Hard Drives. Can't believe the great perform and the extra portability though many systems don't have USB 3.0 support yet.
The drive has a small white light on the front which lights to indicate activity and blinks slowly when the drive powers itself down due to lack of use. The case feels sturdy internally, but the sides are a thinner plastic and the top, bottom and rear have a plastic grill fdor air flow. I do not see a fan inside nor do I hear one but the drive only heats up a little whne running full steam. I have used it to backup my WD 2TB USB External Hard Drives RAID 0 array and after the backup was complete (about 567 GB) the top of the case was about 95 degrees or so. Not really hot just warm to the touch. Normally the top of the case is room temperature.
Overall I think this drives makes a great storage media and though lacking it does support both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 so it is set for the future.
Purchased 2 TB External Hard Drive
My company was recently hacked. Luckily we had tape backups. I purchased 2 of these drives to get images of our servers (7 in all) for any investigation (if necessary) and was able to get everything on both of these drives in just a few hours, restore our data from our tapes and get everything back online just in time for Monday morning. I have a feeling I will be upgrading my tape solution to an online data backup with these drives because of their speed in recovery and storage capacity.
I already recommended this drive to my friends and he went out and got one to backup his personal home computer. He was able to get his entire hard drive backed up and had no trouble with getting it setup.
I used 2TB USB External Hard Drives this drive to hook up to my Dish Vip211k box to make it a DVR. Went very smoothly, called dish, they activated whatever code on the account to make it possible, I hooked the hard drive up to the receiver, it formatted it for about 5 minutes, and that was it. Roughly 99 hours of HD recording space available, and 397 hours of standard. The best part is, I can't even hear this drive at all, even with my ear next to it, unlike the stock DVR's from Dish which you can hear from across the room. Very happy with this 2TB USB External Hard Drives purchase so far.
Fited my PS3 with 2 TB External Hard Drive
I brought this external hard disk for $ 128. This product was easy to install and faster than i expected. Overall, very nice product for a decent price. If you are looking for an ext hard drive, don't hesitate to buy this product. Great for backing up pc and viewing media with PS3. Have to convert to FAT32 to use with PS3, no big deal, easy to do. I've dropped it a few times moving it between computers and game systems but it still works perfectly fine. L.Gbur I've had this drive over a month and it has performed very well. It's a great value for the money.
