    I am making a movie that once completed will exceed the 8Tb capacity of my iMac. So, I will need a safe place outside of the iMac to store large sections of the movie till they're all complete and then finish editing them together and save it on the easystore. I had some difficulty linking the WD easystore to my iMac till I was fortunate enough to speak with Natalia V at Western Digital whose advice rapidly solved the problem. So, beyond a very large, very capable appliance, I also got direct, succinct technical support. This was a very good experience for me. Gratitudes for your efforts.

    I have 6 easy stores at this point. I like them better than elements (due to lack of power button). The price is always good. I usually wait until it’s about $14-15/TB. That’s best price you will find. The most recent purchase wound up being $13.10/tb when I factored in the $30 in rewards I guess I had accumulated. Great product though. Highly reccomend!

    Ok, i needed a large capacity drive to back up the work i do. I was happy to see the 20TB drive for the price that was not blowing up my budget. But, when I got it and started to use it on my mac - it was not really working. Of course, it was not configured to work with mac but, but there is software on it that you can run and it allows storing files from mac. I wanted to format it for mac but, i also have windows. In order to backup files from both, i left the formatting as it is. With the software they let you run - it also works for mac. But, I have to tell you - I almost returned it. And the reason is - it is SOOOOOO LOUD!!!! I mean, it feels like a factory when it backs things up. It feels painful... i mean, i thought it was broken. I have no idea what it does but, trust me - the sound is just crazy... I let it run for a while and, figured, it was just the way it works.... But, I really do not like the sound and, was just battling between returning and getting other brands with 7200 rpm or something ... (this one is 5400 rpm). Anyway, I rate it 3 out of 5 simply because it does have a ton of room, but, for the mechanical architecture, speed and price - i do not think i would buy this again.

    A Massive Storage Beast! – WD easystore 20TB Exter

    After using the WD easystore 20TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive for a couple of weeks, I am absolutely thrilled with its massive storage capacity and performance. I need a ton of storage space for my work and personal files since I'm a photographer and videographer, so the easystore 20TB has been a game changer for me. In terms of performance, I must say that this hard drive has been extremely reliable so far. I haven’t experienced any issues with the read and write speeds, and it handles large file transfers without any problems. The easystore 20TB remains silent and cool, even when performing resource-intensive tasks.

    Love the large storage capacity, games so big now days, but I got room to not delete for awhile. Didn’t work on my older computer- but perfect on my newest computer.

    Western Digital hard drives do not disappoint! Very solid heavy construction and does not get hot while hooked up. Just plug and play (use), no additional software needed. I do not use the included cloud services, which is optional, but not for my needs. Very happy with this purchase. Thank you Best Buy!

    Great external hard drive. A little loud at times when its working hard but it does the job and since it was on sale it came out to around $19/TB which is a really good deal.

    Perfect for storing family pics/vids. We used to store everything on our laptop but now we use this hard drive instead. Clearing space on our lap top also. A bit tricky to use at first since you have to install the program but simple afterwards. Got the 20 tb on sale so it was definitely worth it. Probably wont ever need to buy another one for years to come.

    I've always had good luck with the Easystore drives. Whether I used them as intended or shucked them, they have proven to be very reliable for me. Just keep in mind, though that every drive will fail eventually.
