    "it's ok...Love WD...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."

    "Nice !...It's ok...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....As for the initial setup - you need to do some magic to be able to format it to APFS, but if you stuck, just do a little google magic, and you'll have a running drive in a couple of minutes."
