Large but I don't see speed and cable looks vunerable
on 12 November 2012
Currently this is among several large, quite low cost-per-TB, branded disks. I chose it because the USB3 faster interface (claimed 5Gb/s compared to 500Mb/s for USB2) put it ahead of others. However, I don't note any real difference, either in making backups or Premiere Pro video editing, in speed with this disk compared to a USB2 disk, on modern USB3 i7 and i5 PCs. I know cable clamps are now out of fashion (or maybe even banned for safety reasons), but the wobbly USB3 microUSB connector on the back of the drive hardly looks built to last, and the rather rigid cable with large plastic moulded plug does disconnect if the WD drive is pushed or cable touched. Given these comments, next time I would choose a disk with the larger near-square USB2 B connection.
