    "Good $...Good HD...Now that I've retired, I wanted to keep my files but no longer need massive file exchanges with colleagues, so I ducked into Best Buy one night, got a recommendation for this baby from a Blue Shirt, & I was in & out in under 30 minutes for under 60 bucks....There isn't much unique properties an external hard drive can have compared to other options, but WD has always been a trusted brand for me, so in summary all I can say is the design influenced my decision between other options and no problems have occurred to this point, nor do I expect it to."

    "Nice !...Great !...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."

    "I liked...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've not been using it very long so I don't know about endurance over time but so far it's doing exactly what I bought it to do with no issues (just not quite how I was hoping it would do it)."
