WD Desktop External HDD Reviews

Big Drive. Good Price.

By Erik

It's a big drive for a good price, not a bunch more to say. I use these to backup footage so speed is not an issue but if you are looking for blazing speed this ain't it. I have a shelf full of these in my office and a shelf of clones at my storage unit. Good backup drive.

These drives are great!

This is my second of this particular kind. My 8GB is running our of room, so I figured 16 should do it :) The price is very reasonable, speeds are fast and it looks nice.

Quality!

Using with Windows 11 and so far, everything is good. Seems to be working just fine with no issues. I had a similar setup with Windows 10 and that worked well too. Good way to setup redundant backup for your important files.

Impressed with its speed

I have been using WD External Hard Drives to backup my extensive photo library and have never had a problem with them.

Mega storage

Since I have many thousands of photos, I need a good amount of storage. SSD's would be much too expensive for a similar size. WD seems to work fine and be largely reliable. Their tech support is good. You never know when one will fail - that's why I have two 18TB's.

A must have for all back up needs!

It serves its purpose. Please make sure you back up all of your data. It's not a fast drive or intended for work, rather for the sake of saving your data in case anything happens.

Excellent 12TB Drive

I'm not 100% sure, but there must have been when I bought mine or I likely would not have purchased it. You should contact WD with that question.

shuckable?
Asked by: Thuan
If you are referring to being able to remove the drive from the enclosure, it is possible according to some online users who have successfully done so but we could not guarantee it since we are unable to verify this information and this will void the warranty on the drive. We do not recommend it.
