    I'm very pleased with the speed of this device and use it quite a bit for backing up files and for storage to take things back and forth from work.

    Speed of access of these drives has improved immensely. Even previous drives rated as USB3 were not as fast.

    I was able to move over 1,000 movies from several drives onto this device, saving me space and energy. The USB 3.0 interface is fast and I can play videos directly from the drive.

    I've trusted Western Digital for a long time now for my hard drives and they are still my go to for backing up all my photos and videos from my photography business. This drive packs a lot of storage and is crazy affordable. Plus, the USB 3.0 is really fast!

    Fast & reliable HD, if you are a Mac user like me, be sure to install the provided software to erase the drive. Doing it with the mac disk utility will cause a lot of errors. Over all is a great disk.
