    I bought this drive to put my Photo's on but even with the USB3 it was too slow to do photo editing with Light room. I also found it really noisy. If you plan on film, video or photo editing then pay the money for a thunderbolt devise that is way faster else this slows your whole system down.

    This is my third WD external drive. No problems with the previous ones, just needed more storage capacity. I plugged this in to the computer, and began backing up not just the computer, but the other WD drive as well. The problem I do have with it, is it's loud and makes the desk vibrate, there is no light on it indicating it's actually doing anything, however from the noise it's easy to tell if it's working.

    Good, but not good enough.

    The product itself gets the job done! If you're looking for a hefty backup device with tons of space, this gets the job done. My only complaint is that there is absolutely zero indication lights on the device! It's annoying not being able to know if a transfer is finished or still in progress without having to constantly be checking on the computer!

    I have been using it with the PS4 since external HD support was recently implemented. It is working with no issues. I do not find it noisy and it is fast enough. I docked one star because it has no external drive light and I like to be able to see hard drive activity. I should point out many people do not like a drive light and find it distracting. So for you fguys-5 stars

    Removed one star because there is no power switch or light to control the UAB drive. It has a reasonable fast transfer speed. Runs quite and cool without fan. I bought this USB drive to store Acronis backups and other general files. I have it connected UAB 3.0 to a WD MYCLODEX2ULTRA network drive. It shows up as a Share and works fine. I'm old and wanted to have a lot of my file portable in case have to leave home with out WiFi. IT's big enough to hole what ever you need to move with you. And connected this way it is out of the way.
