WD Desktop Everyday Internal HDD Reviews

Not working with my iMac

By Sorin
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-16

Mi iMac retina 5k 27-inch 2017 with latest OS was not able to see this drive as an external USB drive. I am using a USB3 doc and the only way to initialize this drive was to use a Linux OS. I used both MBR and GPT partitioning systems, and created one 4TB big and 2TB smaller partitions, formatted them in eXfat, NTFS, and even old FAT, but no mater what I did, my MacOS couldn't see the drive. I was able to see and mount it and play with it on Windows machines (including my iMac in Boot Camp), but no luck with MacOS, so I have to return it.

This is for backup, it was sent quickly and worked perfectly, though I didn't really expect anything different.

Purchased 2 of these based on specs since model no doesn't allow to distinguish between CMR and SMR technology. Cache and speed matched EZRZ drive.

Different than specs suggested

Purchased based on specs (64Mb cache should have been CMS drive) since model no doesn't allow to determine. Drive is EZAZ which is SMR technology per WD website and 256Mb cache. With CMR vs SMR being a big purchasing factor these days, the specs need to reflect the correct product.

Nowhere in the specs was it mentioned this was a 5400rpm dog. Very disappointed!

Great added storage for video hungry jobs

I'm a wedding videographer that deals with 100gb of audio/video per wedding, so these low cost drives are a very cost effective solution for storing and working with huge video projects.

Do you know what might happen if I shove my finger in to the spinning plater and can the lid be taken off easily if it is not already off like the picture shows
Asked by: Hayden
I have doubts that this is a serious question!!!! It is extremely difficult to dissemble the HDD enclosure and by the time you got it open, the drive would have long since ceased spinning even it had been powered up. Once a drive has been opened it is useless as even a microscopic particle would damage the read head. Of all of the questions I have seen posted to B&H over the years, this one ranks as the most ridiculous.

After formatting and installing the capacity is only reading 5.45 TB. I know that the capacity is generally less than listed for technical reasons but is 550 gig normal? That's over half a terabyte.
Asked by: joshua
It's the difference between counting terabytes in base 10, like the manufacturers do, and counting them in binary, like the Widows operating system does. In base 10, 1Tb is 10^12 or exactly 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. In binary, 1TB is 2^40 bytes, or 1,099,511,627,776 bytes. If you divide 6,000,000,000,000 by 1,099,511,627,776 it equals 5.45696821063756942749... or roughly 5.46TB.
