not for hot areas without cooling solution 5/29/2020 5:24:50 AM

Pros: tremendous space
fast write speeds
wd reliability

Cons: gets hot(over 50C) in warm areas

Overall Review: What can i say it's a huge drive enough to hold all my video files for my plex server with room to grow. it's not exactly the sweet spot on the price per tb scale but it's a fair price and the extra space is nice. i've always had good luck with wd drives so i'm sure it will last. my only issue is that it gets hot. and not under heavy load either. granted the room temperature at the time of it overheating was close to 90 farenheit but all my other drives were sitting around 40-45 at the time. i ordered a usb fan to sit underneath the drive and i assume that will keep it cool. just a warning to anyone else keeping this in areas where then ambient temp is above 85 it will get past 50 and anything above 50 will hurt the life of the drive. considering at it's hottest it got to 54C i assume the fan will do it's job and i'm also assuming that's just the nature of such large capacity drives. just a heads up to anyone else getting this drive who doesn't have good ac in hot areas you WILL need some sort of cooling solution or your drive isn't going to last very long.

Aww shucks, I don't know 5/27/2020 1:57:51 PM

Pros: I cannot comment on the external hard drive or the USB3 connector. And, why does the internal white label exactly match generic red label specs?

Overall Review: - Would you recommend this product to other people?
- If given the choice, would you purchase this product again?
- If there is something about the product you could change, what would it be?

Good backup drive so far. 5/21/2020 5:10:57 AM

Pros: It just work.

Cons: The ON/OFF switch is soft. The drive turn on automatically when there is power on the USB3 connector. To fully turn it off, you have to unplug it.

Overall Review: This is a shingled drive, be patient when you write data.

Great Drive for a NAS 5/20/2020 1:56:44 PM

Pros: Inexpensive drive suitable for a NAS

Cons: Makes a clicking noise when idle. According to WD and my research this is normal and is operating as intended.

Overall Review: Great low price option for a hard drive to use in a NAS. Very easy to remove the drive from the enclosure without damaging anything.

WD Elements 6TB Hdd 5/17/2020 8:16:10 PM

Pros: Quick for a 5400 rpm drive.
Plenty of Storage.
Runs smooth with no issues.
Easy Hook up.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I would recommend this Drive to anyone looking for a bump in storage space.
I can't understand all the negative reviews on this drive as I have had it a few months now and have had zero issues with it, It runs quiet and has instant recall. I am going to be purchasing another one of these drive in the near future as I have a home recording studio and love the ample storage space.
