    "I have never had a WD product break on me and I have had a external hard rive from them for almost a decade now and it still works as good as the day I bought it and it has been everywhere with me...This is my fifth 8TB Western Digital External and I must say I love it, granted it is not as flexible as my three 8TB Seagate externals with their dual USB hubs and build in wifi but then again the WD is also less expensive and from my past experiences, more reliable"
