  1. I never purchased the external HD fro WD because it doesn’t boot up from Tiger, as it doesn’t have Firewire support.

    Luckily I found this out before re-purchasing the above-mentioned drive. It was doubly confusing for myself, as the

    Western Digital products are by and large compatible with Mac.

    Anyway, Amazon routed my to Other World Computing, and I found a HD for my purposes.

  2. This item performs as advertised, but in such an unstable manner that I could not recommend it to any one. I use a competitor’s equiptment. Thumbs down.

  3. I purchased this drive for < $60 US last year. The drive stays cool and the USB interface allows smart control monitoring

    via : smartctl –all -d sat,12 -T permissive

  4. There were no instructions with package. Followed the scimatics on hooking up

    and that was the end, a light came on and it sat there doing nothing nor could

    I get any help on line.

    End of Story a piece of junk so far.

  5. This is a very manual time-intensive drive for copying and saving files, there is no quick way to get it to store alot of files and programs. Relative to other external drives, this is very limiting The item I received did not even contain everything stated, even inside the box identifying what should be there, when I called customer service and their tech support, I was told no. Additionally, the tech support was terrible. Would not recommend this item or WD Elements.
