The clicking is comparable to louder desktop and NAS HGST drives on the noisy end of the scale. That I’m not even complaining about.
This drive has a constant humming from the rotation that is awful in the living room for movies.
This is worse than a WD Black put in an enclosure which are normally louder.
This is louder than my previous 3tb WD USB, 6tb Seagate USB and NAS with two drives combined.
Still going strong, pretty happy with my purchase. The 8tb is completely full now, I am looking forward to buying a 16TB model now!
The Western Digital 16TB model is fairly pricey, the Seagate 16TB model makes more sense as it's current price gives more GB/$. Looking forward to the Black Friday!
Good packaging, setup was smooth. Working great with my windows 10 PC. Decent write speed. Moved all my movie and tv series collection to this drive. 7.4TB of usable storage.
It’s not too big .
Just note it comes with exFAT formatted storage. You should consider formatting it to NTFS If you are a windows user. Onedrive sync will not work with exfat drive. Also search indexers like Everything won’t index exfat drives.
This was purchased to replace a failing drive for my Xbox One X. Connected up with the old drive and transferred my data across.
To my surprise this drive is actually quite noisy (sounds more like the older HDD's of yesteryear) as there was continual clicking. After a little research it seems that noise is standard for the 8TB drives, these are running the newer helium internal configuration, which reduces heat, but seems to make them noisier.
This wouldn't be an issue if it was connected to a PC intermittently for backup/storage, but since the device is in my Lounge room and is always on, you notice the noise. I have had to move it behind other things to quieten it.
I would highly recommend this drive for the shear space on it, as long as you don't mind a little clicking noise while in use.
Works perfectly well as external drive for Xbox One, would definitely recommend. Only used 55% of drive so far.
4 Star, would have got 5 if not for the noise.
I would expect items being delivered to an Australian address to come with an Australian electrical plug. Or to at least include the relevant adaptor.
Not the fastest device but the fine as a backup storage device.

I bought this in August 2018, now in February 2019 (6 months later) the enclosure died on me.
Fun fact: The encryption key died with the enclosure as well so my data is lost on both of these drives.
Now you're thinking, oh, i'll just disable encryption... well... nope, you just can't. Encryption is enabled on these drives by default and it cannot be turned off.
Paying $660 for a RAID-1 array that has chances of losing all your data is a bad idea. I learned the hard way so you don't have to.
Avoid this if you want to safeguard your data.
Edit: I just received the replacement 12TB MyBook Duo from the Western Digital RMA process. They sent me back a new enclosure but the drives inside are RECERTIFIED white labeled Red drives. This is yet another deception to receive recertified drives after a replacement of a 6 month old $600 product. I also do not trust their enclosure anymore, due to the hardware encryption mentionned above, i am spending another $200 on a 3rd party OWC Dual drive enclosure that does support hardware RAID-1 without encryption. Overall, i will have spend about $900 with the original product, shipping of RMA and 3rd party enclosure to finally have a 6TB RAID-1 array and i'm on recertified drives... not even new. Want to play the lottery? This could happen to you. Stay away from this product.
I called WD again and they tried some more remote assistance but nada. WD gave me an RMA # and it cost me $20 to send it back to WD. I paid WD to send me another drive and it had all the same problems! Another RMA. Then I got an email on the initial drive from WD:
"Upon inspection of your returned product it was determined that the product may have been altered and is not eligible for replacement under Western Digital’s limited warranty policy. Per our warranty policy: If upon inspection of your returned Product WD suspects fraud or deems such Product to be counterfeit, WD may, in its sole discretion, confiscate such Product or take such other actions as it deems necessary. Due to our warranty policy we cannot return this product to you. There is no warranty associated to this product and service will not be rendered. "
I called WD to ask WTF? And they told me the serial number on the outside of the case didn't match the one on the drive inside the case. So obviously, the Amazon seller, ITech-Geeks, were swapping around drives and cases -- which voided my WD warranty. Luckily, Amazon is a great, stand up company -- and they're refunding me after all these many hours of frustration. So I don't blame WD, it was ITech-Geeks. Caveat freakin' Emptor!
This 4T came formatted in ex-fat and "ReadOnly" Tried everything to get it into Write/Read...no joy.
Went thru the help stuff to no avail. Called WD went thru the stuff that should've fixed it, but it didn't.
The WD guy called it faulty. Shame, it's the first WD product that failed me in over 20 years.
Leaving the drives unformatted might be a good idea. Let the end user decide how to format the drives they bought.
