My fav!...Nice HD...I bought this hard drive so I can store all of my movies on it in an digital format, which makes it a lot easier to hook this hard drive up to my smart TV and play which ever movie I want....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.WD's automatic, continuous backup software works quietly in the background to help protect your data using minimal PC resources.
