So Far So Good...

Pros: Fast transfer speeds. I copied over 5TB's from older external drives onto this new unit. For that amount of data to transfer overnight-- it went pretty fast.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Formatted before first time use. Recommended.

SLOW!!!!!!

Pros: Works but slower than watching the grass grow.

Cons: I have only had this drive ten minutes and am about to chunk it in the trash where it belongs. This drive runs very slow and is noisy. My first plan was going to be ripping it out of its case and installing the drive in my desktop for more storage since its cheaper to buy this drive that way, but I have made my mind up I am going all ssd I know the cost is MUCH more. I have my OS on a ssd now but will be ordering 2 WD 2TB drives very shortly. The 2TB ssd WD drives are less than one 4TB Samsung. Wish I could afford the 30TB Samsung ssd.

I have over 25 Seagate 8 TB. None dead yet

Pros: Easy enough to get the actual drive out using a flat-head screwdriver, then a Phillips-head. Unlike their 3TB and earlier, I have not had one die yet using hot-swap bays.

Cons: Why are the external drives always more expensive than internal drives?

Other Thoughts: A bit faster than the WD green drives found inside the external WD drives.

3 Years no issues

Pros: Price/TB is great

Cons: its still a single drive, potential to lose 8TB with a failure

Other Thoughts: Been running 24/7 for 3 years and no issues yet.
Keep in mind 8TB is a LOT of data to put on a single drive, if this is your only backup target you will eventually lose it.

Great External USB 3.0 Drive - Tons of Storage Space

Pros: I have reformatted this drive to EXT3 for use with linux, and I am using it to backup all my data files from three different computers.

Everything has been working great for over a year with no problems.

The cables seem to be a good length, the drive seems pretty quiet, and the transfer rates seem good to me. Drive looks pretty nice too.

Cons: There is no fan or on/off switch, if those are things you want on your external drives.

Other Thoughts: It's really a nice external drive. I bought a second one in Spring of 2018, and I just ordered two more today. I love these drives!

Solid backup drives

Pros: Fast enough, stable enough.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've bought about 20 of these over the last year for various projects. Only one was DOA (failed in the first 100 hours) and the rest have had no failures. I accept that there will be a certain number of failures - what I'm looking for is for the failure to happen early in the lifetime (so I don't lose a bunch of data).
