I have a couple of WD MyBook hard drives. One is a 1TB AVR extender for my TiVo Series3 and the other is a 3TB that I bought to store ripped movie files and backups from my computers. Both are more than two years old and have been as stable as light switches. I bought the 1TB drive because it was designed for use with the TiVo and got the 3TB because of positive feedback posted by buyers on the Amazon site, where I bought it. That said, I have heard some scare stories about some of the WD MyBook lineup but my two haven't given me a minute's trouble.
