I thought i would have had problems as reading other reviews i have Window 7 64bit, just turned my computer on plugged all the cables in and presto it notice the drive first time and the software too, i have put some of my files on no problems up to yet , i still have to do my computer backup then see if that works okay, very easy to use , not to big or bulky, only time will tell, but excellent service, recieved within 3 days, up to yet well recomend this, and up to yet i did not have to unplug this and restart my computer , my other hard drives i had to do this, i think its worth looking at i can only give my review for my use

Reviewed by Mike on 04/09/2012
I have had 3 of these (though one is the 1TB model) since February. One is attached to an iMac (easily reformatted), one to extend the capacity of a Buffalo Linkstation NAS and one to provide local storage to a WD TV-Live box. All three have worked faultlessly. However,do be aware that there is no on/off switch (which for me is not a problem), so they are not perhaps perfect for all applications.

got this drive a few months ago, it experiences daily use but doesn't have huge amounts of data written to it. It's sadly dying on us as i type this. I've given the product itself a rating of 3 to refelect the failure (i had expected this to last atleast a few years!)
