Quality


Wd drives are always good, one of only two spinning rust brands i'll buy, and these are absolutely the quality i expect of them.

Positive Review

And the quality of the product is satisfactory.

Positive Review

There is a reason supposedly for it but i argue and have always argued that its not an honest telling of the product.

Neutral Review

If you have a issue with the drive down the road replace the usb cable !

Neutral Review

Competitiveness


Much better value than some 4tb renewed drives i purchased that are slower and unreliable.

Positive Review

I don't wish to lose all that effort so my work is backed up to a 4tb wd elements desktop hard drive.

Neutral Review

I own 3 of these - 8tb (for storing tv shows, & comics), 10tb (backup movies) and a 12tb (movies).

Neutral Review

This is great, but it did not come with any wd backup software or a trial version of acronis.

    It was plug and play and all i had to due was map the drive in windows 10, when not in use the drive shuts itself down and then starts back up when used.

    There are lots of videos that can show you how to shuck the case to confirm the drive type or use it in a computer (pretty sure that voids warranty, fyi).

    I ended up reformatting both partitions to be hfs+ (as the asus router doesn't read exfat).

    The wifi (or ethernet) network (vs having to directly connect drives to each machine).


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The asus router exposes the shares in such a way that windows and mac can both share files.

    I have used the two top manufacturers external hard drives for some years; most of the time when they fall on it's side the life of the hard drive is shorten and the problems begin trying to retrieve your data.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This is great, but it did not come with any wd backup software or a trial version of acronis.

    So the harddrive itself is fantastic, the cable is not.
