- Be careful- October 2, 2020
I just purchased this ...transfers data onto it and luckily I didn’t delete that data and now that the data on the drive cannot be retrieved. Meaning both PC and Mac won’t recognize the drive and the guys at geek squad can’t even get it to recognize . Best Buy geek squad said that he knows that this particular brand and product at 5 TB has had significant problems ... i’m not the first customer this is happened to in the last month or so and significant malfunctions have occur within a few months. Be very careful if the Best Buy geek squad’s don’t recommend it then I also am a living proof that this product should not be sold.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

- Reliably does what it's intended to do- April 13, 2021
Bottom line: Good value for an external drive that's reliable and performs well. My specific use case is as an external HD for my XBSX to store my last-gen games. The performance is good, actually seems a little better on the SX than it was on my One X, and the form factor is great. It's quiet, the one light is inconspicuous, the cable it long enough to provide flexibility in placement but short enough that I need to coil it or have extra that clutters the area. That makes it small enough to fit easily on the same shelf as my console. The price at the time of purchase was the same as the 4TB model so this is an even better value.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very happy- October 11, 2020
I am really enjoying the experience of using this drive. I like the extra peace of mind that enabling hardware encryption gives. Now I don’t have to worry about losing the drive and some rando gaining access to personal information. I’m sure it’s not proof from a dedicated hacker but should foil any normal person. The transfer speed is good. I’ve got USB3 on my laptop and the drive is USB3. Writing to it I get about 120MB/s which is fine for a spinning disk. I haven’t done any read speed tests but I have not noticed any issues there. Read speed is typically better anyway. For the cost and size this is an excellent purchase.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
