This is the third hard drive I bought to backup a former WD hard drive to. The others were useless as only about half of my files would transfer to them. This one transffered seemlessly and quickly.

Works as advertised

Recently I have had some recent failures with expensive SSD storage. As a result I have been supplementing my SSD backup storage with inexpensive hard drives. This card drive more than fits the requirements. This drive is small, lightweight and a good travel companion. I am using this connected to a Mac Studio computer and the copy speed has turned out to be faster than I anticipated for lowly USB 3. Highly recommended.

I purchased two for. They arrived on time and worked as advertised. I transferred several Tb of files from my hard drive to one and then the other. This allowed for dual backup of my numerous images and freed up space for the next onslaught of photo images to my hard drive for processing. Takes a while to copy files (several hours) but the price is right.

Tons of storage - great price

I bought this drive because of it's huge volume (5TB) and the fact that it was only about $100. I recently bought a 4 TB SSD which is about twice as fast but cost about $400. This drive easily transfers at 80 MB/sec which is fast enough for me. I don't edit videos directly from this drive, and you probably could, but it's great as a backup drive. No external power cord - all powered via usb. In fact I bought two since they were so inexpensive. Very pleased.
