WD Duo External HDD Reviews

Horrible

I have had nothing but trouble with this since I got it. On my Mac it constantly disconnects. Now the fan spools up like a turbo for no reason. It's strange because the regular my book drives work great. Avoid. Especially on OSX

Two of my Units Disconnect All the Time and the fans go into overdrive. I have to unplug the unit for 5 mins and then put it back one. Do all the drive checks and it says it is OK!

Unexpectedly ejects all the time

Maybe a year after buying, it began ejecting. Support couldn't fix the problem. They replaced it, but that one started ejecting, too. I've tried all the suggestions to fix the problem. Not worth the hassle. At all.

A great way to back up all of my photos!
