    This is the "slick-looking" version of the 2TB drive. It's about as small as a mechanical drive this size can get. T. he WD Backup program is good if that's your primary use. Would prefer a USB-C connection rather than the older style (less likely to fail). If using with a laptop like the Surface models or MacBook where size and weight are a consideration, consider SSD drives (although they currently are much pricier.)

    WD used to be very intuitive and would automatically set up with my computer. I bought a second back-up drive to save only photos/videos but it wasn't compatible with the recent WD I purchased so everything got confused. I checked in with Geek Squad and they couldn't make it work either, but she did get me set up with a manual process to back it up. The drive works, but it's not easy to set up.

    not the sexiest device but like all WD drives this one has been durable and I travel with it a lot so it gets bounced around quite a bit. haven't had a failure yet. Ii do like the included WD software suite, works great as a back-up. would be 5-stars if WD included an option for cloud back-up too (free with minimal storage and pay for more).

    This product is easy to set up, however, it get's complicated at the moment of synchronizing it with the computer as automatically creates a path of files and is hard to find where your stuff went instead of allowing you to set the path and the folder where you want to move your stuff.

    I needed a hard drive large enough to store my digital photographs. I only use Western Digital because of their reliability and durability. I can't afford to have an external hard drive fail on me. I have quite a few of these and would not use any other brand.

    Very pleased with my purchase, helps me keep all of my hard drives color coded and has a very nice & sleek metallic brush to it. Been quite a while since I purchased it and its hasn't given me any problems.

    Bought this as add on storage for my Xbox One X and was not disappointed. I've always had great life and reliability from every WD product I've purchased and thus far, this drive has performed perfectly.

    If you have a smart tv and want to store videos on a external had to play directly on the TV make sure you format it to MBR NTFS which is limited to a 2TB. Also his hd is powered by the USB port. No complaints so for.
