Things to consider when buying an external drive-
☛ PC to drive data connectivity options are USB 2.0, USB 3.0, FireWire 800 and eSATA
☛ Common color options are black and silver / aluminum or combination of both
☛ Drives are pre-formatted for Windows (NTFS) or, for Mac (HFS+). It takes few seconds to
reformat the drive to your requirements. Some users prefer FAT32/exFAT which
allows the drive to be read and written by both Windows and Mac
☛ Our selection includes colorful retail box drives and factory re-certified "zero hours" drives
in brown box. Not all models are available in both conditions.
☛ Starting from 320GB unit external desktop drives come in different formatted capacity units
such as, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, 4TB and up.
☛ Utility software are usually loaded on the drive in installable format. However, latest versions
those are available at WD website.
