Thanks for that tip, I have a 2 more WD power adapters that I will try first. Hopefully it works. Funny thing is I'm using its original AC power supply and getting nothing.
+4 for you!

Link to 20% Coupon: http://reg.e.staples.c
The 20% coupon link isn't working, I get a blank.
Really want the drive. Costco has it for $129.99

I have this drive and its pretty good (picked up for 119 a while ago). Usb3 interface does make a difference.
My main issue with it is it slows down reboots by 15-20 seconds if its powered up while the bios initializes it. I am not sure if its my bios though.
Also windows 7 backup will fail part way through unless you reformat the drive using quick formatter provided by WD so don't waste your time like I did.

I actually purchased this 2 days ago b/c my MY BOOK 750gb elite just wouldnt turn on and it has seen very little use. On the other hand, my My Book 250gb which is a year older than the 750gb is still working fine. Had the 250 for about 4+ years and the 750 for 3+ and was surprised it stopped working. Going to try to take it out and put it in an enclosure.
Anyways, I had Staples PM the BB price of $130 then applied 20% and $5 coupon for a pretax amount of $99. YMMV on PM and coupons.
Oh and the My Book essential has a 2 year warranty vs the elements 1 year.
