I've used Western Digital drives for years and really like them. This drive replaces an older back up My Book that wasn't big enough anymore. My Dell Studio XPS couldn't "see" the new drive when first plugged in. Using a different USB 3 cable than what came with the drive fixed the problem. I deducted a star because of this. For some reason the factory cable worked with my Surface laptop. Go figure.
