  • Excellent for power users
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Boopmom - March 21, 2021

    These External hard drives are fantastic for just about anything you need to store and the size will do you for years unless you are storing extremely large files, but even then this will last you some time. We have stored thousands of home movies, hundreds of thousands of songs, large databases, files, games, etc. and have not even touched the surface of the large storage capacity of these drives. I would only recommend for those that are planning on using these for long periods of time. If you are not sure if you are ever going to use this amount of storage, go with a smaller storage unit and then you can always move up later down the line.

  • Is 12TB enough for you?
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jmoche - December 2, 2019

    As a photographer, I use a lot of storage. The last time I built a computer, I installed a pair of 4TB disks (1 as an archive and 1 with edit versions of the files.) At the time, I was shooting with a 20 Mpix camera. Now, I use a 50 Mpix camera, and storage is getting tight. Instead of replacing my existing internal drives, I decided to add external storage. So far, this WD Drive has been fine. It runs quiet and cool, and it is not significantly slower than my internal drives on read, and only about 50% slower on write. I’ve owned WD drives in the past and have always found them to be reliable. I’ve removed 1 star because their is no power switch.

  • Bought 2 of these to use in a NAS
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Nothingbutrabble - December 21, 2019

    If you’re wanting a huge drive at a budget price to shuck and use in a NAS, this is it chief. For folks that are looking for specific model info about the drives inside, both contained a 12tb WD120EMFZ. Bought 2 of these for $179 each and shucked them (removed the drive from the casing) right away. I set them up in a NAS using RAID 1 (mirrored) because they are budget drives that aren’t designed to run 24/7. I wanted to minimize, as much as possible, my concern about data loss. For folks that are shopping for a NAS as well, I’d recommend a Western Digital MyCloud EX2 Ultra. Very cheap (about $150), easy to setup, has a TON of features, and supports these drives!
