I haven't opened this one but the design appears identical to the 8TB units I did shuck, as I'm using it for its intended purpose, as an external USB drive. In my case hanging off my NAS to rsync backup the NAS every night.
For those also using it as intended instead of shucking, the AC adaptor was physically different to my 8TB units, but electrically the same (12v 1.5A) - it was actually friendlier for side by side use in power-boards than the ones that the 8TB ones came with, though that could be total luck of the draw of course.
The drive inside is a WD120EMFZ Helium sealed 5400rpm, possibly 512MB cache. According to reddit, this may be a firmware locked Ultrastar 14TB drive (no way to unlock the extra 2TB). Well, another addition to a good collection of WD drives.
Pricing of spinning drives sure is coming down gradually, maybe I'll grab another 12 or 14TB soon.
Fast transferring speed
Smaller than expected
Has a small latency when I first launch it (any related folder) on PC start
The disk inside my unit is WDC WD120EMFZ-11A6JA0

Ran several tests and all sectors passed with no issues. In my QNAP NAS enclosure, not even a problem with 3rd pin,....and they just spun right up. -------$469 on Amazon for a bare WD RED 12TB,....No thanks
Did a WD lifeguard check. took almost 24 hours to do the full test. Passed the check.
I had the WD120EMAZ for the 12TB ver if anyone wants to know.
Most likely it's a firmware locked DC530 or a White label WD Red..
Easy to encrypt with bitlocker for secured needs!
I am not sure why it got bad reviews, it is only an hard drive!
Not sure what theses peoples were expecting at the first place!
Solid product, I recommend to everyone if you are tech savy.
