    the only thing I don't like about it's that it's made of plastic and not aluminium so it might not last as long as the ones that are not made of plastic. other than that it's good

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I have a few of these, and they are quick, reliable, and have a small footprint. I wish that it was a little more sturdy, maybe some bumpers to protect the drive, but it's plastic, and the price reflects that. The same drive in a metal enclosure would be much more expensive.

    I had no problem setting up this new WD back up external drive. So far, (about one week's work of activity) it is working very well. It does not organize the material saved as well as I would like but as long as I can find copies of everything in case of some computer disaster or to take with me on my travels, that will be sufficient.

    A solid portable drive

    I only purchased this 4 TB (actual size less, of course) model because I needed storage space for some 4k video files at work and it was on sale. It's a basic plastic encased hard drive that won't win any awards for transfer speed. Hasn't failed yet... crossing fingers. If you need a drive for professional work and not a temp solution, then I would look at Lacie or another rugged unit designed for heavy use.

    I got this item on sale and for the price of 4TB on the market, it performs flawlessly. Just plug and play and drag and drop all your files that need to be backed up over USB 3.0. I have never used the included software on the drive since I prefer to manage files myself, therefore, cannot comment on that. The plastic design is mediocre, but definitely does not feel cheap. No additional power sources needed as USB 3.0 cable takes care of transferring the files and running the device. The transfer rate is acceptable. Great for people who need a backup solution for personal files with portability.
