    "wd best...Love it...Great for routine backups...The only complaint here is not with the actual drive, rather with this case it's in... I do not care for piano black glossy finishes at all because they tend to start looking old and beat up sooner than other textures, but that's nothing to do with the drive so I won't dock a star for that."
