Worked well until it died
on June 17, 2014
I was using this external hard drive to stream media onto a Western Digital media player. After about a year, the media player started having trouble accessing files on the external hard drive. Eventually nothing could access it, including the computer I used to load media onto the hard drive. I assume it's a faulty usb connection but have yet to open up the enclosure and find out.
I've had good experiences with WD's internal hard drives so I'm pretty disappointed with this product. It did not live up to the WD name.
