This review is from: WD Elements 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBWLG0040HBK-NESN Black
Pros: LOTS OF SPACE FAST AND VERY EASY SETUP. IT IS VERY QUIET AND IT DOES'NT RUN HOT. I HAVE HAD IT FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS WITH NO TROUBLE. ONE THING I REALLY LIKE IS IT DOES'NT HAVE A BUNCH OF STUPID FLASHING LIGHTS ALL OVER IT. I DON'T KNOW WHERE MANUFACTURES GOT THE IDEA THAT EVERYBODY WHO USES A COMPUTER IS 5 YEARS OLD AND WANTS TO SEE 20 LIGHTS FLASHING ALL THE TIME.... REALLY
Cons: IT GOES TO SLEEP WAY TOO SOON. NOTHING YOU CAN DO IN WINDOWS STOPS IT EVEN DISABLING USB SLEEP WILL STOP IT. EVERY TIME I GO TO ACCESS IT I HAVE TO WAIT FOR IT TO SPIN BACK UP AND MAN IS IT IRRITATING . I CALLED W D AND THE GUY WAS USELESS AS HE WAS SO CONVINCED IT WAS A WINDOWS SETTING HE COULD'NT HEAR ANYTHING ELSE AND WHEN HE EXHAUSTED HIMSELF HE GAVE UP. I WILL CALL AGAIN AND SEE IF I CAN GET SOME HELP.
Other Thoughts: OTHER THAN THE SLEEP ISSUE YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WESTERN DIGITAL IS THE ONLY REALLY RELIABLE HARD DRIVE LEFT IN MY OPINION AND I HAVE HAD THEM ALL OVER THE LAST 26 YEARS.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: This is a very nice unit.I used it in an older NON CHINESE case i had with no usb ports on the front and it brought it right up to speed. Everything functions well, super easy install.
Other Thoughts: I thought this would be a cheap piece of junk. Turns out it is very handy and has functioned flawlessly for 8 months now.If you need this type of setup than this is the one to have.READ FULL REVIEW
