"DOA out of box"1.0 starson by insane consumer
Pros: I thought that it had potential.
Cons: It didn't work. It would transfer part of a file and then freeze. It also was slow to be recognize by my laptop.
Summary: Mistake number 1 was that I bought this defective item. I've never had trouble with Western Digital drives. Mistake number 2 was that I bought it from Office Depot. They would not refund my money stating their technology clause on the receipt, that any opened technology item cannot be refunded. They gave me a gift card for the purchase. The manager's attitude was as though I didn't like the product and returned it and that he couldn't resell it. He was deaf to the fact that it didn't work. Don't stores like this do RMA's on defective stuff and get credit for it?To answer candreae, my laptop works fine with other usb drives so the problem is not with an overloaded usb, just with this particular hard drive.
