Possible alternative for those in need for extra storage...

Denis Vukosav, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: 4TB hard drives are a welcome option for people in need for storage for all media files or similar. While in the market for some time as external HDD, the 7200 RPM options finally are becoming more available. Western Digital skipped the 3TB capacity entirely in their high-performance 3.5" 7200 RPM HDD family, jumping from 2TB straight to 4TB in their Black line.

Dead on arrival

Anthony Durham, Amazon

  • Summary: This drive was dead on arrival :( All it could manage was a clicking sound HGST (also owned by Western Digital) produce a drive for around £50 less, I was willing to pay the premium for a quality product but this is not it.

Very satisfied!

Laurie Bredbury, Amazon
9 February 2015
  • Summary: It arrived well packaged. I had no problem at all setting it up and it's fast with awesome storage space. Not a bad price either. I've been relying on WD Caviar Black HDs for years and I've never been let down yet.
