Completely Happy With This Drive 12/7/2019 11:57:04 AM

Pros: Recognized by my OS(s). High quality, consistent with specs. Have not had any issues.

Cons: None at this time.

Overall Review: I've mainly used Western Digital for my drives for quite some time now. They are far more reliable than some other brands. I also like the fact that (the internals) come in various speed options. I've been using WD internal and external drives for almost 20 years now and they've never let me down - have had this one since Sept of 2019 and it is no exception. Would completely recommend them to anyone.

Worthwhile fast, quiet storage drive 12/5/2019 11:48:28 AM

Pros: This drive is very fast. I'm not sure why, but it is faster than my internal 7200 rpm drive when moving data, hashing files, etc even though this is a 5400 rpm drive.
It is also fairly quiet. When waking it might "rumble" a bit (not sure why this is as my other drives don't do it, perhaps the motor spinning up?), but otherwise it is barely noticeable. As quiet or quieter than my other desktop external drives.

Overall Review: I love this drive, would buy more if I could afford them. I've filled it halfway with data without any problems so far; works great.
Some extra info for the curious: smartctl reports the internal drive as WDC WD100EMAZ-00WJTA0. (smartctl requires the switch "-d sat" to read this drive.) This is a helium drive; helium level is reported under SMART 22. (My drive is still at 100%)

Really shouldn't be giving it 5 stars... 11/26/2019 9:43:39 AM

Pros: I really shouldn't be giving it 5 stars BUT it is working right now. The real test of a hard drive is how long it lasts under what load. Only time will tell. It WILL fail the question is when. And more importantly is everything backed up when it does. Yeah, I think RAID is in my future. Soon, someday.

Cons: The "Cons" will come if it fails what I consider "prematurely".

Overall Review: Was getting about 200 MBps when doing a read speed test. A bit less when doing a write test. At the end of the test it was down to about 170 MBps so this might indicate that as the drive gets to it's maximum storage it might slow down. These were all sequential R/W's.

Cons: None
