    WD Easystore 4TB External USB drive

    Great unit - compact and fast! Easy to transport where needed. Bought on sale for $82.99 so also a great deal. Connected to my laptop easily and quickly. Ready to use in 2 minutes. Small drawback (pun intended). The power/data USB cord could be longer. If trying to use it on a desktop, the unit may end up inaccessible as the cord is only about 12" long. I would like at least double the size to ease connections. Otherwise, I would buy again and make do with the short cord.

    Honestly the best purchase I needed for my gaming laptop. I’d highly recommend this product to someone who needs something small, not too bulky, but can hold a lot of storage for the price it is.

    As our personal devices get better cameras, the file size of images and videos gets larger and larger. People like me who still backup on External Portable Hard Disk Drives find our Drives filling up faster than before. I have purchased 1TB WD 'My Passport' External Hard Drives in the past that I still use. Size: This 4TB drive is smaller in size as compared to a 1TB drive but shockingly 4x the Storage capacity. Speed: Drive Access speed on initial access is slightly slow as compared to 1TB drive but not a big deal. Price: I got this product at a discounted price of $80+tax so I have no reason to complain at all. Just buy it preferably during a sale. Warranty: 2 years. Con: An included custom soft storage case would have been nice but you can always pick up a decent one for a few bucks more.

    Easiest backup device ever.

    The 1-1/2 year old Windows-based PC I’ve owned had always given “reminders” that a backup task needed to be set up. Best Buy happened to have a Deal of the Day for this 4TB device for just under $100! Ordered online and it shipped fast. Once hooked up, the PC immediately “saw” it. I then went through with setting up a backup task using the already installed prompts to do so. It was just that easy! The only drawback was the fact that my USB 3.0 jack was on the backside of the PC, in close quarters with my desk installation and the small portable hard drive only comes with an 18” dedicated USB cable, making it necessary to concoct spacers to raise a shelf so that I could set the device on top of the PC cabinet. Your computer layout may be better suited to deal with the VERY short USB cable included with this device. For 4TB of storage, you can’t beat the price!

    Western Digital EasyStore 4 TB is Superb

    I knew I could trust WD from previous purchases used for backing up pc’s and also as a DVR for Dish Network. I was amazed at how simple the easystore is to use, and at the incredible price of $99.00 for 4 TB on the deal of the day from Best Buy, I recommend this drive to anyone looking to backup files from a Laptop or pc and for the photographer’s it’s a great drive to store pictures and videos. I had filled my laptop up with concert videos from my camera and GoPro and this little drive was the perfect one to purchase. When I first saw the size I was not so sure about it but the file transfer is fast and smooth with a great software package from Western Digital. I also like that it is powered through the USB cable and doesn’t need external power. I like it so much I am going to buy another one. Get one and you will be satisfied!

    I thought it was a little hard to set up as I was expecting to plug in and drag and drop items but instead I had to set up an online account in order to get it to work. But i'm not very tech savvy either. Overall it does as it's intended and seems to work fine with an Imac. I think it should be a little more user friendly and not require a person to have to set up an account in order to use it...

    You have to run the built-in software before you can save anything to the drive but once that is done you are good to go. ON MAC: you may mysteriously get locked out from the drive (file saving blocked) but you can overcome that by granting the Mac USER account access (RIGHT CLICK ON DRIVE ICON, GET INFO, SHARING AND PERMISSIONS). Just grant the user permission...viola!

    In years past--I always had the large External Hard Drives, ranging between 2-4TB. This is about the size of a billfold but don't let the size fool you. This little hard drive is 4TB & connect it to a 3.0 USB & your files, photos & videos transfer over smoothly. You can "Cut & Paste", move to or copy to & your file will be saved with no problems. It worked so well I got a second one. With over 100,000 photos I needed something that could do the job & this little hard drive does great.

    I needed to have a place to store and back up my DropBox photos and files. The DropBox upgrade to save space on my computer was over $200! I bought this at 1/2 the price and my problem was solved. Works as advertised. The physical size of the unit is nice and compact especially for its storage capabilities. I’m very happy with my purchase!

    I Love this Easystore 4T external drive! It's inexpensive, plug-and-play, and transfers fast. The backup internal drive in my desktop went bad, so I replaced it with this one. Then I bought a new PC and I use this drive to xfer data to the new computer. Don't need a 2nd internal drive anymore, as this one is compact and just sits on top of my new mini-tower!
