    6TB My Book Desktop USB 3.1 Gen 1 External Hard Drive is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent backup - but no green light. I have used WD USB drives for years. This 6TB drive works just like all the others. My only disappointment was that this drive has no green LED to show when data is being transferred. All my other 3TB and 4TB drives have this light ?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WD Backup software is a complete waste and makes the unit al I have the WDBBGB0060HBK. Good bang for your $$ but the WD Backup software you get with the unit is terrible. You can't even select other drives connected to your PC to automatically backup to this unit. What is the point of backing up data if you can't even select the hard drives with the data you want to backup?? The person who in charge of this SW at WD should be fired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great external drive This is the 3rd one i've bought and had no issues with any of them. I always surface test my drives before I start using them - all have come back clean!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well; high capacity. I use this hard drive as a backup for my MacBook Pro and second hard drive. It works very well. Only small issue, is that is must be formatted for use on a Mac. To be sure, this reformatting is quite easy. The 6TB size is nice and large, plenty of room to backup a 4TB external drive and the internal drive on the Mac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I have long been a fan of WD drives. This one is no exception. Installation and use were without a hitch. I have 3 of these drives that I use for backup. This one will be for archiving of digitized video tapes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised but no drive activity LED I formatted with ext4 to use with Linux and mirrored my 4 TB drive. Everything works as expected. I knocked off one star because there is no LED to indicate drive activity. Come on-how cheap can you get? I suppose this a new trend that we will have shoved on us.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good external drive I have been buying WD external drives for years and have never had a problem with any of them. This one is the largest TB drive I've gotten, and it functions beautifully.
