Where the transfer/backup speed with my 6TB WD My Book drives is about 65 mb, the 8TB drive transferred data at about 130 mb. Faster is always better, and when you can do the job in half the time, you have to be happy. I immediately ordered another five drives when the test unit performed so well.
Solid product that is not too bulky. It measures 6.7x5.5x1.9 inches. For a USB 3.0 enclosure using a 3.5" HDD it reads and writes at about 165MB/s. The WD software is quite easy to use and allows for password protection to unlock the drive as well as scanning utilities to detect bad sectors.
6TB = 5.6TB exFAT of storage for Mac or Windows compatibility
NO LED or visual power indicator
Bought for a HTPC/Plex server. Work as soon you plug it. After few days I look at the temperature and it was running a bit hot nothing major. Around same time a bad/weak sector was reported by Hard Disk Sentinel. But one bad/weak sector is nothing major as a problem still perform very well.
Large capacity and quiet nice looking external hard drive
Run a bit hot, After few days one bad/weak sector was found
For the price, this is a good deal on a powered USB external hard disk drive. I'm using it to back up a 4TB network attached storage device, which is itself the backup device for a menagerie of MacBooks and Windows laptops. At $180, this external disk fits in the TB/dollar sweet spot.
Needed something for backing up my PC, this one did it, set to do it every other day so do even have to think about doing it, and it's done. A great deal
I am a firm believer in keeping data stored off the computer's hard drive to persevere space and speed. This WD does just that for me!
Needed to store video clips and photos.Very easy to use and perfect for our needs with still storage space to spare - just what we wanted
By far the best purchased external device ive got. I bought seagate 8tb before and had to return them cuz they stopped working th next day and as a filmmaker i need big drives For my video footage. So this is the way to go.
I like it, but was surprised to find that the disk comes pre-formatted as exFAT rather than the NTFS I expected and would rather have. I found that loading about 5 TB of movie files went much faster after re-formatting to NTFS.
Bought this for Xbox One, I wasn't dissapointed when I saw that I asked me to format it, knowing that this works makes me happy so if anybody wants to know yes it does work for consoles.
