Comments about Western Digital My Book Essential 2TB USB 3.0/2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive:
I just wanted to replace a noisy external drive I used only for weekly backups. This drive is blissfully silent and its vertical orientation takes up less space on my desk than what it replaced. I merely plugged it in and let Windows' backup utility copy my files onto the drive every Monday morning. I don't use the included backup or password-protection software (so I felt unqualified to give a full five-star rating). This drive has twice the space I intended to buy, but I feel future-proofed now plus I don't worry any more about how much Photoshopping I do.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
