Pros: Very cheap ($110.00) here at Newegg Large capacity USB 3.0 Fast delivery
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Bought this in Feb 2016 and immediately transferred about 2 Tbs of videos to it. No problems so far after 2 months on a Windows 7 64 bit system.
Update May 2017 - Have owned it for a year now without any problems. Even bought a second identical one 2 weeks ago when on sale for $105 here at Newegg. No problems with it either. Transferred 1 1/2T of files from a smaller drive. Not sure why I see such bad reviews on this unit here. Same one gets almost 5 stars on "A". Still gets 5 stars from me!!

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 hard drives to fill with 20 years of family videos for the grandparents. They both loaded well and functioned great during a quick test. One worked great, but the other started clicking and pulled up data sporadically. One moment it looked like data was there and worked, but after watching one movie, all the other files disappeared.

Pros: Was 4tb of storage up until the point it didn't work
Cons: It does not work. I just lost 3TB of data.
Other Thoughts: I would not purchase this hard drive. I purchased it in Nov/16 from NewEggs popular auction site store. 6 months later it failed with no indication prior that this was going to happen. I just had to pop the hard drive out of the enclosure (voiding the warranty) to try to salvage any of the data that was on it.
Do not buy this hard drive.

Pros: -- size -- capacity -- no AC adapter -- value
Cons: -- connection reliability unknown
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a similar one not very old. The connectors in these are non-standard inside (not SATA or eSATA), so you can't open the case and get files off is connector gets buggered or a control board dies. It is literally just the drive in a case with a custom connector terminated to a USB. I would recommend you be VERY gentle with the cable entry into case. Otherwise Western Digital drives are about as a reliable as any. Since it's not SSD, try not to move it suddenly when plugged in.

Other Thoughts: Brand new 3TB drive and it's faulty. It kept failing the install after I plugged it into the USB port. I tried to re-install the drivers, and while that worked, the drive will not show up in My Computer or Computer Management for me to access it. I can't feel nor the HD humming while it's one, so this leaves me to believe the HD is faulty.
I can't even return the item because I got rid of all the packaging.
