    Always my go-to backup solution - have many units

    I have 10 or more WD EasyStores - sizes from 2TB to 18 TB so far. They are fast, reliable, and affordable. I've never had a single glitch in an EasyStore. This is my go-to backup solution and I stock up when on sale, because you can never have enough backups. As a 40 year IT professional, you need off-line backup so if you are hacked, those backup units will not be accessible. Secondly, you need both on-site and off-site copies so if your dwelling is ever wiped-out or you lose access, you still have a backup of your critical files in a safe location. People who claim the size of the unit does not match what's advertised do not know that they're talking about. There are two different ways to measure storage capacity - one used by the International System of Units is a base-10 prefix (mega, giga, tera) to represent a base-2 number (MiBi, GiBi, TiBi) defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). 1 Megabyte = 1000 Kilobytes while 1 Mebibyte equals 1024 Kibibytes. For the IEC units, each jump in prefix is a multiple of 1024 (2^10) instead of 1000 (10^3). Anytime you hear a number of bytes or bits, you have to consider if they are talking about base 2 or base 10. Hard drive companies typically sell products in base 10 as it makes it sound larger. A 1 Terabyte hard drive will turn out to actually be about 931.3 Gibibytes. That's where uninformed people get confused and write uninformed opinions. Also, Windows and Linux report volume sizes differently, which further confuses the situation. So if an OS reports an 18TB drive as 16.3 TB, don't blame the drive, blame the OS. See the Windows example where 1) is in TB and 2) is in TiBi.

    I have 7 of various sizes and all work great.

    This review is for the Western Digital 18TB external version. I've moved away from bare drives in docks to these enclosures. I was concerned with the heat build up of the drive since it is inside an enclosure but Western Digital has done a decent job of providing vent slots on three sides of the case. My first enclosure many years ago was a Seagate Freeagent and it died very early (still under warranty). That wasn't a fluke as other guys in the IT department I worked in also had their Freeagents prematurely fail. On the initial huge backup when the drive is new it definitely feels warm so I usually point a small desk fan towards the enclosure to help if needed. I've been using the drive off and on for the past two months and it works great so far with no problems what so ever. I love how the Western Digital Easystores and My Books have the same power requirements (so the adapters are all the same so far) and the same Micro USB connector. That way I only have a couple of power and data cables on my desk that serves my 7 enclosures. They only get powered up when I'm backing up and then they get ejected and powered down to prolong their life.

    Big Storage, good price. Reliable

    Lots of storage, must break in, first time transfer speed abit slow but after multi use speed moves faster, can be loud sometimes clicking noises, but hey WD drive works, i still have 15yrs old drives that still works. Plus i got this on black friday sale, even Amazon couldn't that match price. no brainer for me. I have 10 WD drives and 2 Seagate, all WD still works, both Seagate i failed. WD for life.
