              LOVE these drives as I use them for backups of my photography. WD also has a great warranty on their drives.
              I have others that I have used for backups and have purchased these as the price was great per TB.

                  Ordered these for my synology NAS device. Put them in and turned the unit on.. it was that easy. No issues and they work great. These happened to be recommended by B&H when I ordered the Synology NAS device, so kudos to B&H for the great customer service.
