Is It Good Or Bad?

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning t get a Western Digital My Book Home Edition 1TB to store all my data from documents to pictures to movies, so I decided to search for reviews on google, but they are all mixed up. Can anyone attest to the quality of this product? Any input would be appreciated.

P.S.

Regarding the triple interface of this external hard drive, is it true?

eSATA > Firewire > USB 2.0

eSATA faster than Firewire, and Firewire faster than USB 2.0?

Not a huge of WD My Book external drives - love WD internal drives, but not a big fan of the external stuff. I prefer LaCie drives - if you look on my blog I recently did a post on buying an external drive. Also, I have a special discount on LaCie drives for BestTechie members which can be found here:

As for the other post with regards to buying an external drive see here:

And yes, you're correct about the interfaces.

It should, what time did you call? If possible I would call before 5PM EST. I'll contact Chris (the guy who gave us the deal) and see what he says to do.

I called before 5 pm EST, I wanted to place an order ATM, so I tried contacting customer service, but they just ask you to leave a message.

Hi.  Smart gadgets for the kitchen can save not only your time, but also money, reducing energy consumption. These benefits will be appreciated in every home, restaurant or small coffee shop. It does not matter if you are a professional chef or cook only for yourself and your family. Therefore, I use such devices as https://www.maran-pro.com
