Great product but drive failed!

  • Excerpt: Bought for a 2012 I7 iMac. Was tired off buying USB 3 hubs that didn't work with various drives. Construction typical WD - plastic but strong. Feels Solid. Thunderbolt expensive but speed and daisy chaining great not to mention leaves USB ports open for other devices. Drive A failed in the first 4 days. Program warned and now I need to replace drive. No longer being in the US I wasn't sure about replacement warranty but phoned local WD dealer.

WD My Book Duo Thunderbolt - 3.5 Inch External Hard Drive - 4TB

  • Excerpt: Very good quality product in relation to the price. Perfect for video editing and raid storing at high speeds. The only negative is that there is no thunderbolt cable and has to be bought separately. The cable is pricey.

solid professional drive at a good price

  • Excerpt: I own 5 of these. They are great dependable drives. they are quite and fast. I use both raid 0 and raid 1 setups and its everything you'd expect. My only complaint is with the WD "green" drives in them they often go to a sleep sort of mode and take about 3 seconds to fire back up if I haven't accessed them in a while.... not a big deal and it saves power and keeps them cool.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile

Disconnects randomly

Brandon, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: Great drive, huge space, and great speed! The only problem I have with it is that I get random disconnects from the hard drive. I've tried reseating the cable as suggested but still It happens. It's about once or twice a day. Most of the time it's not an issue to get a warning that it has disconnected as I don't use it 24/7. But when it's sitting on the desk, undisturbed and does it in the middle of a large file transfer or internet download it's very frustrating.

Great external HDD

Miro, B&H Photo
16 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased the 6TB My Book Thunderbolt Duo to use it as my external HDD for making movies in Final Cut Pro X. As it has Thunderbolt interface, the speed is just fantastic. It is also very quiet, which is very welcome as I spend a lot of time playing with my movies. I can also daisy chain it to other Thunderbolt devices, which is fabolous and does not limit my storage capacity in any way. I use only RAID 0, although there are other RAID available.
  • Pros: Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable
  • Cons: No Turn Off Button
