Great Drive… Horrible Software… Mediocre Support In our office we have several external hard drives and I can say that this particular WD model (the 160GB External) is so good we bought two. But… don’t stop reading here… make it to the bottom of this review before you buy it.

Good overall Backup software: ‘Retrospect’ is not very intuitive, but the manual on CD explains the operation, options etc. very well. I’d say ‘almost professional’ quality. Dantz, the maker of this software is owned by EMC, a famous storage products company. If you have files that you’re gonna have a copy on this HD only, then you’ll like the software, because it backs things up in ~650MB pieces (by default, no need to play with settings) so that you can back them up on CD-Rs or DVD+-R’s.

A Wonderfully quiet hard drive I love this hard drive. My LaCie and others have loud fans and since I bought them for digital video the sound when taping is annoying ( to hear over or tape over). This unit is quiet and has worked without a problem for me. The only thing I’d change on it is that the power plug can be knocked out if tugged on ( if your wiring is all tangled like mine–my fault). Other than that this is drive to buy.
