Q & As

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beware if you have a desktop I bought this following a good review of the 500GB model. When I received it, the first thing I noticed was just how short the cable was. If you have a desktop, the cable is not long enough to reach the usb ports at the back of either a Dell or Levono. You can place it on the tower, but that might vibrate and these portables don't like movement. I'm placed mine on the ground. Nor do they like being on all the time as they overheat and self-destruct. So if you have a portable, make sure you also back up to a second place. Some computers may not like the WD if you use Windows 7 back-up. I am scared so will try out a third party back-up programme. In short, this is a drive with known issues and a short cable. Might be ok if you only use it with a laptop and you have room to place it very close by. Safer options might be larger drives with their own power supply. 06 January 2013
