Very Shuckable 9/28/2020 8:41:31 AM

Pros: Got it on sale. Shucked it. Now have a 10TB internal drive for way less $ than I would have spent. Had it a short time now but all is well so far. Its a little faster ATTO than I expected.

Overall Review: I recommend

Great drive! Unexpected quirk. 9/26/2020 4:02:53 PM

Pros: - It is fast in sequential workloads, got up to 200MBytes/s in either direction
- Automatic power management that can power up the drive once it detects USB

Cons: - It has a non-standard barrel power plug. Or to be precise - no 12V power supplies in my home could fit that thick prong, but its power supply can fit any 12V device in my home o_O
- Really slow for random workloads. Got under 0.5MByte/s in either direction with CrystalDiskMark. Based on the access times I am suspecting an SMR drive here.

Overall Review: - Uses micro-USB 3 plug. Having a big desktop device I would expect a bigger plug, either a mini-USB, or a full-size Type B USB. But despite having a history of multiple micro-USB plugs failing on me especially with external hard drives, it is still OK.

too hot 9/16/2020 2:05:21 PM

Pros: lots of space

Cons: I shucked this thing and it's a WDC_WD80EDAZ which is air filled and ran at near 60C while in the case. I should have returned it but I imagine it will run cooler with a fan on it while it's in my case. SMART report is good otherwise.

Overall Review: I wouldn't recommend this one unless you get one with model number EMAZ. Run CrystalDisk and it should tell you the model of the drive inside .. I bypassed this step and now I wish I would have.

Great value. I was gonna shuck it, but... 9/12/2020 8:41:01 AM

Pros: 10TB of storage! That's crazy.
Price per GB is absurdly cheap. 2 cents?!
Performance is actually really good over USB 3.0, which is why I didn't bother shucking it.

Cons: It's not the fastest drive, but it's mechanical and it's 10TB.

Pretty barebones drive, but it does what you want: store all your stuff, forever!

Overall Review: Heck yeah.

Pin Connectors Break 9/8/2020 12:36:56 PM

Overall Review: Just got this HD less than 3 months ago and one of the pin connectors has already broken despite only being plugged in a handful of times. Now it’s a fancy looking brick.
