Review Update

Pros: Price
Seems to work great in proper format

Cons: Spent hours troubleshooting and ended up ordering another drive anyways

Other Thoughts: Will work out of box on newer OS (Windows 7 and newer), needs to be reformatted for older OS

Tried on a Vista PC and showed up RAW (thought it was probably a driver issue) passed all the tests from the WD software utility (wasn't trying to reformat/lose the data I put on it from windows 7 PC)

Turned out I either overlooked or maybe checked the wrong drive but in the end I discovered this drive was formatted in exFAT
and not NTFS which was invented after Vista was created (will only display exFAT on Windows 7 or newer shows up as RAW on vista). So was forced to reformat and start over on this hard drive if I wanted it to work on an older OS, but I swear it said NTFS when I first plugged it in. (whatever its done now)

Also note there is NO power or activity light if you care about that sort of thing

Linux Support out of the box

Pros: Despite WD saying that this hard drive requires Windows or Mac, this external HDD works just fine on Linux (tested on Debian 9).

Cons: The AC adapter is a wall wart. You will need to sacrifice some outlets to use this drive, or find a replacement adapter.

Other Thoughts: Comes preformatted as 5.45TiB (6,001,174,511,616 bytes, or about 6*10^12, and not 6*2^40) Exfat partition with a bunch of Windows only utilities. Needless to say, as a Linux user I won't be using these.

Work great on Windows 7 SP1 Professional 64 Bit!

Pros: Plug and play on Windows 7 SP1 without problems. Do scan all surface to check for any bad sectors took about 12 hours and nothing find. It come in format is ExFAT. It can format to NTFS if I want to. I'm so happy for this new hard drive for backup. I heard this can work fine with PlayStation 4, Xbox One and future new gaming system to support this bigger hard drive for store huge games library collection.

In near future, when Microsoft stop support Windows 7 then I will switch to two different operating system are ReactOS and Linux. Hope both OS work with this hard drive. WD company must support other OS like Linux and other OS in near future.

Cons: None. I don't use WD software. I prefer old fashions drag and drop files. I don't want to touch any setup files to mess with them. No need to set password or lock this hard drive that is why easy cause we forget if not use long time. Stick with old fashions should be no problems for many years.

Other Thoughts: High recommend buy this hard drive because WD is very great company than Seagate company. I heard Seagate hard drives are high failure rate than WD, but Seagate company must improve quality control to make hard drive life more far longer live for many years similar to WD.

I wish WD company can build WD plant factory building in US and hard drives are made in USA would be awesome to boost sales a lot faster than before. More outstanding WD services and warranty like we need to contact them about problems on hard drives should be replace without hassles. Never disappoint with us in the future. WD services should not ignore people who have problems with hard drives! Because it is law and WD services have to do that! Thumb up for WD and stay very stronger for many years like solid high quality! I'm fans of WD hard drives and love them! :-)

Beware of Toxic Hardware encryption

Pros: Large capacity

Cons: If the case electronics die, then your 6TB of data is toast!
You cannot take the still perfectly good drive out an plug it into another case or pc and see your data.

Other Thoughts: An insane idea (or someone in WD bought shares in a data recovery company).
Let users choose if they want to encrypt their data. Then they can choose to do so by using safe software encryption.

Eggcellent product

Pros: 6TB = 5.6TB exFAT of storage for Mac or Windows compatibility
165MB/s read/write using USB 3.0
AC adapter included
USB 3.0 cable included
WD Drive Utilities allows for status check for drive failure and bad sectors
WD Security allows for password protection to unlock drive
Black construction with glossy top half is aesthetically appealing
3 - year warranty

Cons: NO LED or visual power indicator

Other Thoughts: Solid product that is not too bulky. It measures 6.7x5.5x1.9 inches. For a USB 3.0 enclosure using a 3.5" HDD it reads and writes at about 165MB/s. The WD software is quite easy to use and allows for password protection to unlock the drive as well as scanning utilities to detect bad sectors. Overall, it's a solid product and works as advertised. The 3-year warranty is about the longest warranty you will get from a consumer external HDD. The top half is glossy and prone to scratching if handled but since this is a stationary device it would be fine.

6TB WD My Book - Forced hardware encryption but can be shucked.

Pros: - Sleek looking external hard drive.
- Power brick isn't too large, points downwards. Standard 12V - 1.5A.
- Despite what people say this hard drive enclosure CAN be shucked. Meaning you can remove the bare internal hard drive from the enclosure and put the hard drive into your PC for use (no encryption). Unless you are a ninja, this will VOID your warranty.**
- There IS software & hardware encryption IF you purposefully want it.
- This is Western Digital quality, so the drive should be reliable.

Cons: - This thing DOES have mandatory hardware encryption on the enclosure PCB.
- If the enclosure dies, it is unlikely you will be able to recover your data because it was encrypted. Or get someone to decrypt for you.
- There are no indicator LED lights to inform the user if the drive is in use or on.
- This doesn't seem to have any indicator LED. No light for power on or activity.

Other Thoughts: - Only time will tell how reliable this little external enclosure and the drive inside is.

Used CrystalDiskInfo:
- WD60EZRZ model
- 8 power cycle counts
- 0 power on hours

- Drive came back with no bad sectors after a full drive scan using WD's Disk Diagnostic tool.

** So I am giving this hard drive 5-stars still simply because, while it does have mandatory hardware encryption, you CAN remove the internal drive without damaging the enclosure (but will void warranty), and you can use the internal WD Blue (WD60EZRZ) in another computer.

** In addition, you can even re-use the enclosure (with hardware encryption) to accept a different hard drive; you just have to mod the enclosure PCB. Google to figure it out.
