Never Buy A Western Digital External Hard Drive

Posted: October 22nd, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

My third WD drive will be my last. After a dead firewire port left me waiting for a refurb under my warranty, I began to question my brand loyalty. Despite their low cost, these drives have seemed me in the past to be reliable if not sturdy drives. ┬áSadly, Western Digital shipped me ANOTHER faulty drive to replace the original one I had bought, the My Passport Studio 500 GB. The replacement refurb was consistently dismounting itself while I was using Final Cut, which was so infuriating that I leapt out of my chair and marched up 3rd Ave three blocks to buy a new G-Drive Mini 500GB. Seriously folks, don’t mess with Western Digital external drives, they’re bad news!
