- A Great Disk Drive- December 29, 2018
This is a great 4 Tb WD NAS Drive. It can either be used as is, or remove the drive use it separately. Just plug in the USB 3.0 connector to your computer to use it as is. If you stream media from a WD Live and would like more storage space without buying another WD Live, you can plug it into the USB 3.0 port of your current WD Live drive to increase the amount of streamable media storage. Also - you can "schuck" the drive and install the bare drive into a NAS box (for example, a WD, Drobo, Synology or WD Mycloud). There are numerous videos online on how to remove the case ("schuck") from the drive. I definitely recommend this.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Affordable external storage- October 1, 2018
I purchased this 4TB external hard drive to use with my Xbox one. I was originally thinking of purchasing the external hard drive made for Xbox one but it was 2 TB vs this 4 TB drive and was $10 more expensive. I got this on sale for $79 and feel like I got a good deal. So far I have had no issues with it. The only con I can think of is that this requires an external power adapter. The 2 TB drive made for XBox works using just the usb cable. It seems like all the external drives need AC power when size is over 2TB but not positive. This makes it less portable. I would have preferred it get power using usb cable only.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Necessary Evil- August 14, 2017
Due to the nature of the data I'm working with I find that I am always in need of bigger and bigger drives. I have several of these drives and find that they do what they are supposed to and seem to have reliability for the most part. That said WD is my least favorite brand of these big drives due to the fact that their drives seem to be slower to load and bigger in form factor than some others (Seagate). I also worry about the reliability of the drives on the long haul as I have had trouble with other types of WD drives. That said this is a functional item and I now have and use several of them in my home network.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
