i know you can back up all of your stuff into the cloud using this. so as well as having it all on this hard-drive, you can back it up into dropbox. which is great i suppose, but after a one month free trial of drop box you have to pay - so in my book you only really need one or the the other. and this shiny little box will be all you ever need
Serves it's purpose and gets about 80mb/s write speeds through USB3.0
A bit slower than advertaised but its plenty fast for anything you'd do with it.
Durable, fast and WD standard reliability.
Had only had 1 HDD ever fail (internal one) but this is still going strong.
Best use: Storage of movies, games, music document backups.
- Transferring data between devices
- Lending to a friend for the above.
The encryption function is great and works perfectly.
The only problem comes out if you have to use it in some computer where you don’t have the “Administrator” privileges. I use one of the HD for work but I stopped for the above reason.
I also called WD but it seems that the HD need a special DDL to work, so there is no workaround for this problem.
USB connectivity is easy, and back-up and recovery simple for the novice user.
Relatively cheap, an essential piece of kit for all PC users.
