    I purchased this external HDD for my Playstation 4. Was easy to set up and has plenty of storage space at an affordable price.

    I bought this external storage for my xbox one because I was running out storage. This unit had more than adequate room for many games. The installation was easy and only took seconds to set up.

    Got this for my PS4, and it was formatted and ready for use within 20 seconds. If you are tired of deleting games to make room for new ones, then I highly recommend this external drive. 2 TB's of valuable space added in seconds. My console was sluggish with the internal drive almost at capacity, once I transferred a few hundred gigs over, my console is now a lot more responsive! Gotta love it when things work as they should!

    Compatible with Mac, but requires some work

    I needed a new external hard drive for my side-job as a graphic designer, so I picked this one due to the trustworthy brand and the large storage capacity. I have a Mac, though, and when I first plugged it in, it didn't show up in the Finder window. Thankfully I've solved this problem before, so I knew how to format the drive using Disc Utility, but it was a slight annoyance. Aside from that, it works great and transfers file lightning fast!

    I have this attached to the back of my LG Oled tv and plugged into the USB port. I can access all of my movies and photos using the TV. Easy to use.

    Defective Out of the Box

    Purchased this device at Best Buy, brought it home, hooked it up, downloaded the instruction manual, but could not get past page 7. Called the WD Support folks to take advantage of their 30 day setup assistance offer. I was pleasantly surprised it only took a few seconds to reach a live person without being put on HOLD. Talked to a guy who barely spoke English. After several attempts to translate, he told me it was defective and return it for a refund.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Works on Surface Pro 3 and 4

    Works on the standard USB3 plug in on the Surface 3 and 4 Pro without any additional power except from the plug itself. No need to plug in the Surface Pro to use it either. It does drain the battery, but a great option to buy a smaller Pro and use this as storage. A little bulkier than the 1TB, but still, exactly what I wanted for extra file storage on the go.
