    I use this Hard Drive for storing games on multiple consoles. I have around 100 games and this lil thing holds them all, with plenty more free space left over for any future investments! Perfect size as well, slim and hand sized. I travel for work and it’s very convenient to take it wherever I need. Blends in with my set up, not bulky or stand offish. Highly recommend for gamers or travelers that need a bunch of extra space!

    Very easy to use right out of the box. I probably will never fill it up with pictures and videos. It is just so nice to know i have plenty of room.

    So much for plug and play. The Arconis software won’t load. Customer support at WD says it is a “server” problem with Arconis and they are “working on it.”. That was six days ago with no update since. I simply treated it like a USB drive and spent 3 Hours copying over 37000 photos and 1400 videos. I plug it in to a Macbook Air and the password lock (that I deleted) prompt pops up, but there is no cursor in the space for entering the password I deleted. And the drive is not readable by the Macbook. This is an $89 brick.

    Plenty of space. I use this drive for Time Machine backups for two separate Macs. No problem creating two 1TB partitions, and don't have to worry about running out of space. Has been reliable so far and have not encountered any issues.

    It works with my Mac M2 Mini. The Mac Mini is great except that you have to pay through the nose for drive capacity: Mine came with a paltry 256 gigabytes, some of which is used by the operating system and the installed applications. This device provides long-term backup and extended capacity. It's not an SSD so keep it safe from shock and vibration.

    I replaced an older unit that had seen better days with this new, larger-capacity external drive for handling backup. So far so good. It's quiet and seems to be doing its job. That's all I could ask for. I like WD products. They are the most reliable and resilient in my opinion.

    This little device is a replacement for something larger but does twice the work. It was easy to install and saved me many hours of work. I know it is reliable and I can trust it to keep my files up to date.
