  • Store All the Things
    Verified BuyerReviewed by tmntxphile - April 14, 2021

    As an avid media collector, I've got way too many Blu-ray and vinyl rips floating around. My 8TB external harddrive was getting pretty tight, so I upgraded to a WD EasyStore 18TB and this is the perfect backup solution. It holds all of my movies, TV shows, and music files. Transfer speeds are about as fast as a traditional spindle drive will allow. And for my fellow homelabbers out there, these ARE shuckable so you can get a few of these, remove them (carefully) from the case, and pop them into a home server, NAS, or a desktop for tons of storage.

  • Extra Space
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Quicksilver - April 12, 2021

    I bought this external HD as a replacement for my old 3TB HD as it is nearly at capacity. Both the 3TB and 18TB HD are from the same manufacturer and I've never had any problems with these drives. However, it would be nice if there was an on/off switch for the external HD, instead of having to unplug it during periods of severe weather. Overall, it is a good backup to have in addition to a cloud storage account with a cloud storage provider.

  • Beware. Check your drive capacity after purchase.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Tricked - May 20, 2021

    Beware. WD has mistakenly packaged some with the wrong drives inside. The brand new, sealed 18 TB hard drive that I purchased had a 2 TB hard drive in it, although the label and serial number both indicated an 18 TB drive. This is not a formatting issue, but a totally incorrect drive inside. Working with WD right now to hopefully get the issue fixed. The other two I purchased at the same time both had the correct 18 TB drive inside.
