Recent reviews:

I bought this exactly to use it as an external storage choice for my Xbox One, which was down to less than 10% available when they released the update that allowed external storage in early June 2014. If you’re considering this drive as an external drive for your Xbox One system, I can guarantee you it handles the task quite nicely When I plugged the drive into an available USB 3. 0 slot on the back of the Xbox One, the Xbox One now recognized it as an external storage device, and asked if I could like to format the drive. Formatting was straight forward and fast. The Xbox One OS also gives you the chance to name the drive, which I kept at the default & 34;External& 34; so you may be able to tell interior storage from external storage. Another nice feature is that the Xbox One gives you the choice to generally install new content to the external drive till it’s full. If you choose this choice, then anything that’s installed from this point forward will be installed to the external drive, as long as it’s connected. It is a great drive, calm, fast, and I don t have issues playing games off of it rather than the interior drive. Again, if you’re considering this for an external storage choice for your Xbox One, do it .



Depending on the drive itself and the backup software, I could have given this product 5 stars–it’s calm in operation, calm enough to be left running full time on your desk. The easy-to-use included backup software can continually backup files every time there’s a change or you add a new one (or you may be able to decide to do regular backups), and automatically can keep up to 25 earlier variants of files that you have changed (you set the number archived). Why then only 3 stars? Because the drive comes with drive utility software that has a glitch. After installing the drive, before doing anything else, I ran the drive diagnostics; it passed the SMART position and fast Drive tests (both fast to run), but about 30% of the way through failed the Complete Drive Test, which takes hours to run. I ran all the tests again, got same results, then called WD tech support. Depending on my results, they said the drive was faulty, and that I should return it to Amazon, which I did. Amazon quickly sent a substitute–which again failed the Complete Drive Test at around 30%. Another call to WD tech support, this time with someone more competent, and I learned that yes, the diagnostic software that’s packaged with the drive is faulty. He then had me download the utility software they use in-house and use it run a complete test. 16 hours afterward (I am using USB 2. 0, which most likely runs slower than if using 3. 0) the drive passed, and in real use since then looks to be working just good. So because WD is packaging the drive with glitchy utility software I had to use up hours running diagnostics, talking twice with tech support, and returning what was probably a perfectly good drive to Amazon. Ridiculous One could think WD could test and de-bug their software before packaging it with a brand new drive.



I bought this drive mainly established upon a particular need for a USB 3. 0 product with 4TB of storage. I have owned many WD interior and external HD merchandise over time and haven’t had any drive failures to date over many years. I bought this drive exactly as a backup storage drive attached to a Synology 1813+ NAS unit. This obliged a reformat to EXT4 as the drive comes natively formated in NTFS. The Synology NAS schedules backup to this drive of selected folder shares using the “Time Backup” software available from Synology. I am not using any of the software included from WD with this drive (backup, cloud, etc. ) as the Synology NAS has own software for each of these reasons. The drive itself is alike in size to other My Book drives. The plastic casing is surely not as nice as the aluminum finish on the WD My Book drives that I have for my Macs, however it’s alike to the black of the Synology unit and in general looks great. The power adapter is reasonably sized (not a brick), and the unit comes with a USB 3. 0 cord for use with its single USB 3. 0/2. 0 port. WD gives a 2-year warranty with this product. There are cheaper drives with alike specifications available from other businesses. But, having had drive failures with Seagate over the years, I am unwilling to take chances with other alternatives. It is important to backup your valued files, and WD drives have played a big role in my backup solutions over time. If I have issues with this drive, I will update my review. This looks to be another winner from WD Edit/Addendum:Following my review, another Amazon user asked me an excellent question, “Does the USB connection to the drive feel flimsy?.
