    Well mate, the specs are pretty much ok, but...
    You never know what you're really getting with those drives...
    Especially with brands"cheaper than x brand"...

    To be honest, i've heard many stories with WD externals behaving strange.

    I would say, let the price guide you.. you have a good solution there but try a brand with better reputation... start off amazon user reviews.

    There you go...;)

    I have a 1 year old my book and a few older WD external drives. They all still work great. I would buy another my book.
