  • Good storage, questionable longevity
    Verified BuyerReviewed by eShop - December 10, 2020

    Thus far, this has served its purpose for archiving my massive amounts of video data. I had a previous 5GB WD external hard drive that died, and this was used to replace it. When the previous one died, whenever I would pick it up and tilt it on its side, it would make a sawblade-scraping sound, which ultimately led to destruction of some data. This one makes a similar sound straight out of the box when I tilt it, so I'm afraid it may have the same issues sooner rather than later. As long as it is in its proper upright position, it has no issues reading/writing data, makes no obscene noises, so hopefully it lasts longer than the other one.

  • WD best backup drive. Wish price was lower.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Teche - September 8, 2021

    Great backup drive. I only use Western Digital because of my using of various like Seagate which break down faster then WD, same as Samsung, Hitachi and a couple of others. WD has a good track record with me and comes free with backup software. You backup your entire computer 1st time then every hour it will check to see if anything new has been added to your computer and backup only those files (called incremental backup) no need to backup entire computer over every time only 1st time then only new files, music, pictures, videos and downloads. You cannot backup programs only data they save like outlook for email, quickbooks, quicken, etc...

  • Good price per TB. Easy to setup.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by cknapp - September 22, 2021

    Very happy with me new WD Easy store 14TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive. I use Carbonite on my Win10 BEAST of a Desktop PC, to automatically backup data to the cloud for offsite storage. I also use automated software to backup (nightly incremental) my internal drives to this new drive daily to have a physical backup at in case internal drives fail. I am a power user, Adobe CS, Adobe Premier, DLSR photographer, database developer and collector of games and software. 14TB is not as big as it used to be! +Good price per TB. +Easy to setup, was already formatted for Windows. +Came with a power supply and USB 3.0 cable.

  • 14 TB External Drive
    Verified BuyerReviewed by SunnyD - March 31, 2021

    I found the external drive easy to set up however it didn’t come with a cable to attach to my computer, luckily I had one laying around but it’s a unusual cable to have. See picture of cable needed, the other end I’m using is USB, however I believe if you have one with the lightning end instead of USB it may be faster data transfer rates. You may want to look into which cable type is the fastest to use with it before hand and make sure you have it available as a port on your computer. The drive works fine as storage and backup and comes with some recovery software. Unfortunately I had just purchased some recovery software the day before.

  • Huge capacity, how will I ever fill it?
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Sirwoofie - December 17, 2021

    As stated, this external drive has so much storage. Over triple what I've had in the past. I'm looking for reccomendations on what to store in it. Functionally, the device is perfect. Read/write speeds around 200mb/s, which could be better. I bought this device for $182 after a 15% hard drive trade in discount. Makes this an incredibly good deal! Please don't purchase it for more than $250, this thing goes on sale year-round. Also note that this external drive is shuckable- this means you can take it out of its shell and install it in a 3.5" drive bay, provided you tape off some very specific pins. Follow the guide on r/datahoarder for specific details!
