    "Love it!...Love it....Using it to rotate backups and for offsite storage in case of disaster or emergency....It's lightweight and durable, but I have not given it 5 stars because it advertised "Data transfer rates up to 4.8 Gbps," however, I transferred 106 GB of data from my computer to this hard drive and got a maximum of 103 Mbps which is far from 4.8 Gbps, but still really fast!"

I'm happy because I can Backup all my data from different computers... Very trusted"

    "Nice !...Love it...All I had to do was plug it in and I instantly saw a pop up asking me if I wanted to convert it to my PS4(meaning I wouldn't be able to use it for anything else afterwards) I pressed "agreed" and in seconds I was able to use it....My only complaint is that there is a light in the front that shines when the HD is in use (aka the whole time my PS4 is on) that I had to tape to keep it from shining in my eyes."

    "love it...5 Star....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....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."
