My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive with PCIe Adapter Card
From the Manufacturer
The elegant My Book 3.0 external hard drives feature a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface with unmatched speed of up to 5 gigabits per second for the fastest transfer speed available on an external hard drive.
Super Speed USB 3.0
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 transfers data at 5 gigabit per second. That's up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
Read and save files faster. With lightning fast USB 3.0 you don't have to wait for the technology to keep up with your ideas.
This drive's sleek, book-like shape takes up minimal space on your desk and allows two or more My Book drives to nestle neatly together like volumes on a shelf.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface
Accelerate your data transfers with the fastest available USB interface. Transfer a 24 GB HD movie in 2.7 minutes vs. 13.3 minutes with a 2.0 connection.
Your performance may vary based on your system configuration. HD movie size approximates a 2 hour movie.
Resource intensive video editing, animation, graphic design, and large media files can be saved so quickly that you no longer have to wait for the technology to keep up with your ideas.
Sleek, streamlined design
This newest member of the best-selling My Book family of external hard drives features a premium finish that will look great sitting on your shelf.

Top Customer Reviews
My desktop (Dell) computer doesn't have native USB 3.0 ports so I purchased the version that came with a USB 3.0 card. For future expansion (and since the cost was minimal) I got one with each drive so now I have the capability of 4 of these drives. Enough, I think for the life of the desktop.
All in all a good buy.
Most recent customer reviews
Compact small external that connect as needed. Usb 3.0 so decent speed but not much faster than 2.0.
Weak connector ports at back so have to be careful.
I wouldn't own anything other then Western Digital when it comes to Hard Drives. I have had great luck with them.Published on April 6 2013 by 1Foxylady
