    Very simple to set up - plug in, follow Xbox prompt to format, and use - ready to go! We have other WD products for our personal backups so I trust this will last for years as they have!

    I'm really happy with my purchase! I took it out of the box, connected it to my desktop PC, and set up the automatic backup! It was very easy as it comes with the software already installed on the WD HD! I've had it for about 1 month and everything works perfectly! It runs silently and stays cool, and honestly, I'm oblivious to it and it's about 12 inches from my arm! It does what it was meant to do and that is regularly backup my hard drive!
