Great for Dish DVR hard drive5 Posted by: from: on I'm using the 2TB MyBook as an external hard drive with my Dish vip722 DVR. Works great. Allows me to transfer the recordings off the DVR on the external hard drive, which frees up space on the DVR. Holds hundreds of HD movies. Setting it up to work with the Dish DVR was easy using Dish's instructions for external hard drive use. FYI, Dish told me that a 2TB external hard drive is the maximum size the DVR will support and the hard drive has to be self powered (not USB powered).

Easy to use5 Posted by: from: on I needed an external hard drive that is easy to use for my 86 year old mother. I connected this to her computer about 4 months ago and it's been great. Fairly easy to install and works without intervention since then.

Worked Right Away - Good for General Use5 Posted by: from: New York, NY on The 2TB version of Western Digital's MyBook, was purchased to have the flexibility of use with both a Windows XP system, and, a Windows 10 system. The external hard drive came preformatted for a PC, facilitating immediate use. The WD 2TB external hard drive was easily connected, working well with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 interfaces. No problems in use were encountered. Very quiet.

Perfect WiiU storage4 Posted by: from: on I purchased this item to use as extra storage for my Wii U console. It was extremely easy to set up and it functions pretty much flawlessly. The only thing keeping it from being perfect is it can get rather noisy when it turns on until it gets warmed up.
