Good device By:
I bought this for additional storage for my Wii U, this device was overkill thanks to the lack of support for the system.

So far so good. I hope it lasts longer than the previous WD 3TB external hard drive which died after 2 1/2 years.

My 4th positive experience with these drives By:
Only a month old but so far so good. Setup was effortless. Using for backups, expect it to last a long while.
Good R/W speed, great capacity, stands well and stays cool. By:
I love external HDD's because if the case ever wears out you can take it apart and toss it into a desktop.But it's not really portable.... this thing is almost as heavy as my gaming laptop, and much more bulky.Buuuuut.... I carry it around. Because I decided I need 4tb in my backpack. I don't know, stop asking questions.

8tb white label WD drive used By:
I bought two of these to shuck and use in a Buffalo NAS 2 bay NAS system in Raid 1. Both drives are white label WD drives (same spec as Red). Some users have had issues with the 3.3v line on the SATA connector, but there's a simple workaround through google searching. Luckily my NAS did not have this problem. These drives have been running strong and are a great deal for anyone looking at doing similar setup.
a good product By:
a good product at a reasonable price
Great cheap and fast external drive By:
This is still cheaper than buying a bare drive though I am actually using it as intended. Western Digital has a bunch of software on their website that does not come with this drive but will work with it. It is very fast for an external drive and the 8TB version I bought will hold backup images of both my other drives. Glad I bought this and expect the usual Western Digital lifespan of - I have never had a WD drive die on me ever and I have used WD drives for 25+ years. Only time will tell.

Great HD. Especially for the price By:
I've had this for about two weeks now and it is VERY nice. Others have complained of noise/heat issues. I have experienced neither of these issues. I'm not a hard-core, need every millisecond of speed type of person so the data transfer rates are just fine with me. I just needed a LARGE storage area for my photos and videos. This thing is perfect for that.
Works great on Xbox One X! By:
I bought one of these for one of my XB1Xs and was happy enough that I bought a second for my other one. It works well, gaming isn't a problem off these (specifically the 4TB ones, I can't speak to the others) Design's fine, one's stuffed in a media cabinet, the other mounted to the wall behind my TV.
Works great! By:
Bought it to do automatic backups from my computer.

great product By:
just what i needed for my backup
Works perfectly By:
I did an extensive review of external hard drives online, trying to find one that had universally good reviews. All of the big name ones I found (WD, Seagate) had 15-18% of the reviews rated as a 1 (lowest possible). These negative reviews usually cited two problems: 1. The product did not work out of the box. 2. The product failed after many months. How could there not be an external HD that has virtually no negative reviews? Maybe it is impossible to produce 1000's of HDs without a certain percentage failing. I don't know. I had used WD drives for many years with never any problem, so I took a chance and ordered My Book. I got 8TB, even though I will never need that much. The reason for getting a new HD is that my previous HD had only 1TB, which I eventually used. (I am a photographer shooting in RAW.)I found that My Book connected only to the USB 3.0 port on my laptop. It did not connect to my USB 2.0 hub. It did not connect to my Synology NAS (although my 1TB WD Passport connects find to Synology.) Once connected, it showed up as a drive on my Win 7 computer.I use it only for backup. Each night I backup my laptop, my wife's PC, and some drives on the NAS, for a total of about 1.04TB. My Book works fine. Now I will just have to wait and see if it fails. In my case, failure would not be catastrophic because it is just a backup. I could toss the entire My Book and buy another external HD if I need to.

I buy cheap and write well!

Five Stars By:
I am happy with it
Superb By:
This lasted for a very very very long time ( about 6 years of heavy constant use) While it is now most definitely dead, I could not be happier about this purchase. When someone asks what brand of HD to go with, I always recommend WD
