Good Product Starting to See Cracks

Pros: -5TB External HDD
-USB 3.0
-Cheap Enough When Onsale
-Reasonable Write/Read Speed for HDD

Cons: -I'm starting to hear abnormal grinding/scratching noise after 2 months

Overall Review: I've had this product for around 2 months now, and I would give it 5 stars for an all-around solid product if not for the fact that I'm starting to hear abnormal grinding/scratching noises from the HDD. I've searched online, and this is not a good sign. As I suspected, it usually happens to hard drives that have suffered fall damage and are breaking apart. My HDD, on the other hand, has been sitting on my desk for the past 2 months and has not even been bumped. I'll update this post in a week or two, hopefully, it won't be dead by then.

4.5TB Still does the job well.

Pros: Does best with a 3.0 USB port. Great for space saving.

Cons: Not too bad. Just gets a bit warm not hot.

Overall Review: If you need SPACE. This is great for you!

Died after 8 weeks of use

Pros: Price but not worth the hassle if it will only last 2 months.

Cons: Life of this drive made it useless.

Overall Review: Would not recommend.

First One Arrived Faulty, Second One Failed Within 6 Months (and ineligible for return)

Pros: -replacement worked fine for nearly 6 months

Cons: -first one failed out of the box
-replacement failed (will not mount) within 6 months

Overall Review: I have used mainly Seagate and Western Digital external drives for backups for many years. Very disappointed that I can't get another replacement, refund, or credit. Also disappointed that the drive failed so soon and now I must patch together a temporary backup solution until I can find a suitable replacement.

Small, Portable, and Useful.

Pros: - Its a portable hard drive. Since its a USB 3.0 its pretty fast in file transfers too.
- Very small. You can fit this in your pocket its so tiny.
- 5TB. Must i say anything more? It's a lot of space!
- Bought this late 2017. Still to this day it hasn't faltered or had any issues. Highly recommend this.

Cons: - The data cable is maybe a few inches. Extremely short, recommend buying a longer one. As long as its 3.0 it wont make a difference.

Overall Review: Since the only bad part about this is the very very tiny data cable, i highly recommend this!

Only buy when on sale, only good for storage.

Pros: I own 1 of the 5 TB, 5 of the 4 TB drives and 4 of the WD 4TB models, I use them for my job to archive work related items and the audio video stuff as well. I have never received a bad drive at this time, but understand others displeasure at getting them.

When on sale great amount of storage for the price. When you can get a portable archive drive for the drive of a desktop one it is a win.

Cons: Drives are slow, if you plan on using them for console gaming you may be disappointed. That's why I stated archive drive only. That's why I did not give 5 eggs.

Overall Review: If you have a chance to get a portable drive at the price of a desktop drive or internal desktop drive and only need to backup files, this is your device. Or you can buy a WD drive with less storage for more money, unless you can find them on sale as well.

Big, Cheap, Portable and SLOW!

Pros: Lots of storage space for a relatively reasonable price.
Compact in size

Cons: Extremely slow for USB3.0. Takes forever
I went to backup all of my data to this drive as an initial backup and it probably took a good day and a half to copy 2-3tb of data to it.

Overall Review: I purchased this drive to have a portable backup of my data as I am on the road a lot and wanted a copy with me. This drive has to be the slowest drive I've ever purchased. I have numerous Seagate and Western Digital 2.5" drives at home, this one is the slowest. Hardly use it because it is so slow. I have a decent machine with USB3.0 too.
