Western Digital My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Review

External hard drives are great, especially for people who do not want to open their system up to add more storage.  They are also very useful for people whose main system is a laptop and adding extra internal storage is not an option.  Western Digital is one of the big storage companies we all know and their My Book drives have been out for quite a while.  They have recently released the My Book 3.0 drives, which feature SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity.  Today we will be checking out the 1TB version of the drive, let’s see if it is perfect for your storage needs.

Special thanks to Western Digital for providing us with the My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive to review.
