Liz from Clinton, CT
I'm a Photographer and a Graphic designer and I need tons of reliable backup. I've been using this machine for Time machine as a weekly secondary and it has been fast and reliable so far.
Great size for a great price

I searched all over the internet to be a "smart shopper". I found this to be the best price & quality combination for the type of external hard drive that I was looking for. The delivery was very fast and I'm happy with the product.

I wish Lightroom was as easy to use as this drive. I purchased this to do all my photo storage on. I just plugged it in and it was ready to go. I'm smiling.
Good Deal for a Desktop Hard Drive 5/21/2013
I have purchased several of these and have had no problems. Of course, this is a desktop external hard drive and requires an AC adapter (not USB powered), but it's fine if you don't need to carry it around with you. The cost is good compared to others.
This is an awesome usb external hard drive. It is super fast and makes hardly any noise. It was easily detected by my Windows Server and did not even need to reboot my machine. The shipment was fast and hassel free. I will definately purchase more usb hard drives and recomend to all my friends.
I/O not resonding 8/18/2012
MR from SPRING, TX
After 5 months of using the WD 2TB, the unit stopped working and an ERROR message – I/O not responding. I could not access all my data and with limited warranty provided I basically lost all my records.
Nice external hard drive from WD 8/4/2012
Never had problem with the external hard drive from WD.
Basic Storage 4/18/2012
There is nothing fancy about this drive, but it does the job. Anyone who doesn't backup their data is foolish. I use a mac and this drive as my time machine backup. The backup drive needs to be much larger than the original drive and this one does the job. I stick with Western Digital because I've had better luck with them than other brands.
Great Product 3/28/2012

The WD 2TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive performed as stated. Very easy to use. Just plug it in and you have storage.

A sturdy drive that produces great results 8/18/2011
Drive is easy to use and quiet. I have used it on windows 7 and windows vista pcs and both have recognized it right away. I have had drive since 11/2010 and it has been dependable external drive with plenty of space.Go ahead and grab it, great deal!!! I will grab another too.
Great drive for the price 6/7/2011
Jimbo from San Gabriel Valley, Calif.
A little noisy-the only time I notice it is when I go to bed, I can hear the HD reading/writing, but that is only because it is on a hard wood surface, which magnifies the sound. But performance is good, and the price is right. Great deal overall.
Light blinks -- that's about it 3/26/2011
A customer from Gilbert, AZ
I plugged it in and immediately my Windows 7 machine said it wasn't formatted, then wouldn't recognize it at all. So I tried my Windows XP machine, which was hysterically confused about it, going into an endless loop trying to figure out what it was. The funniest part of it all was when I tried a USB 3.0 slot on my Windows 7 machine and Windows told me the device would operate faster if I hooked it up to a USB 2.0 slot!
It saddens me when a great company like Western Digital puts out junk like this. I hesitated buying this drive in the first place after reading some of the negative reviews, but at $89.95 I figured it was a steal -- guess I'll have to wait for another steal.

Failed after 2 days.......fml 1/6/2011
A customer from New York, NY
I was very optimistic because of all the positive reviews online. However, now going back and reading the negative reviews... that is exactly what happened. My new hard drive stopped working after using it for 2 days..... I don't know if I'm just part of that small percentage but very disappointed.... I hope I can get the data that saved....
