- Some shortcomings- May 29, 2020
This drive was a replacement for one I purchased about two months ago, but failed almost immediately. I have had this drive for less than a month and it has "self ejected" many times, forcing me to go through a shut down routine to have my computer recognize it again. It also causes numerous backup to fail because it cannot create a certain folder. Unfortunately, despite the extensive research I did before committing to several of these units failed to turn up the slew of problems others like me were having. My decision to buy three of these drives was a value judgment and the old adage, you get what you pay for and sometimes less, seems to apply here.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Great for lots of Steam games- November 30, 2018
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Now, I understand that not everyone has the same uses for hard drives. To be able to get the speed that the USB C cable provides is awesome! I have over 1tb of games loaded on there and there is room for more Steam purchases! Load speed and power draw is very minimal while providing high performance. Of course, your experience may vary depending on how you connect it. It can be compatible with a USB 3.0 port with the included adapter. Not sure if it's backward compatible with USB 2.0 but I'm sure it is. Did not expect to see 4tb in such a small package but after all this is 2018 and WD has an awesome product.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great At the Price- September 15, 2019
This is a memory dense backup system which has additional apps and features. There is more than enough space for my three machines. The only downside was that its own backup application failed to recognize it as connected to one of my laptops. Since I was only testing this application, it was a moot issue. My regular backup program read this just fine. It uses a USB C to USB C cable, included, which is still a bit unusual, but it works just fine. I had been using a USB C to serial adapter with my @Tb WD backup so I was a bit surprised at the change, but it seems not to have affected the upload speeds.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
