  • Ok, but has an issue
    Reviewed by Stroodle - March 5, 2020

    I like the size of this HD and I like the features it contains. A big problem, FOR ME, it that when I start my computer with this HD attached, it stalls and fully prevents the computer from starting up. If I unplug it, and start the computer, all goes as normal. At this point I can plug in this HD and carry on. This happens 100% of the time on my computer. I tried on a newer laptop, and it worked as you would expect - no issue, but with my older Dell XPS it is a no go. I've covered many forums looking for answers and it is common with some WD HDs and even moving around orders in BIOS doesn't help.

  • Great Drive for the price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by jcameron1979 - March 19, 2017

    Purchased this drive while on a weekly sale. Great drive for the price. I prefer WD drives over other brands. This WD drive was priced similarly to the Seagate Drive of the same size. Drive is easy to use, fast, and has plenty of available space. I do not like the USB 3.0 cable that is used for the connection to the back of the drive. I have an older WD 3.0 Drive that has a regular USB 3.0 cable connection. This one uses the smaller connection that doesn't like to stay in as well. The Drive is also quite a bit louder than some of my other WD drives. I think this might be attributed to the 8TB size. Overall, this is a good value for the money.

  • Great product Loads of Space Setup takes time
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PenWill - April 30, 2017

    I have never been let down when it comes to WD products. And had this one met my needs I am sure I would have been happy. Unfortunately, this product did not meet my demands. I needed a large storage space to do full system backups on 5 desktops and 2 laptops and accessible through my network. This product is suggested for only one computer thus making it difficult to backup others. It would not work the way I wanted it to even making it a shared device on the network. I took it back and ordered the WD 8tb My Cloud drive. This has the features I need and I am happy. I cannot fault the drive as I did not understand its limitations.
