Verdict

By
Performance wise, the WD My Book Essential is not excellent and there are faster external drives in the market. But where the WD drive scores is on the price per GB. At a mere Rs.3.93, its cost per GB is lower than the better performing ADATA Nobility NH03 at Rs. 4.6. So if huge capacity is what you are looking at the WD My Book Essential comes recommended.
