4 out of 5 stars   Works well, some concerns about durability based on previous purchases
By Ashok (Michigan) March 08, 2014
Review submitted for Western Digital My Book 3TB External USB 3.0 Drive (WDBFJK0030HBK)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Fanless design is very quiet and that is a big plus for me when using with my nearly silent iMac. I haven't measured the speed, but the USB3 is plenty fast for my needs. It also does a good job in conserving power by going into standby mode and spinning down the drive when not in use.
Cons: This is my 4th WD MyBook drive, all purchased in the past 5 to 6 years - ranging in size from 1 TB to 3 TB. One of the 3 TB drives failed on me a few weeks ago prompting this purchase. I took the drive out of the enclosure and put it in a new one only to confirm that it is the drive and not the enclosure that failed. One out of 4 is not a disaster, but still questionable in terms of durability, hence the one star derating.
