To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've been using WD external drives since 2006. None of them have failed me. Started at 80GB, now at 4TB. Consolidated my old 2x1TB, 2x500GB, 320GB drives into this with loads of room still available. Password protection is standard and works out of the box. Just needed to add Paragon NTFS for Mac. Real world speeds reach around 100MBps.
I got this to help replace my Xbox hard drive which was playing up and this is fantastic. I am able to access games fast and without lag. It came fast in the mail only a few days after ordering which is better than i was expecting
Works fine but of course it's early days. I use it for backups. I didn't use the hardware encryption, I have software encryption. I'm told the USB is on the disk itself so I'm prepared to abandon the whole unit if it fails.
