Plugged the external enclosure in my NAS running OMV. Formatted it and is running great. Streams all my 4k and 1080p movies/shows just fine. Already had another 12tb external, but it was getting filled up.

seems to be working well, although it's hard to know since I cannot pull up a view of what is on the drive on my MacBookAiir. Also, the reportedly easy installation took me several days and the arrival of a friend to help find the right connections among the cables provided. Hopefully, other purchasers will not encounter such difficulties.

It's great having lots of storage around, especially for backing up other, smaller drives.

This hard drive works great if you don't move it. It is a bit slow to respond though. It takes a couple seconds to wake up if I stop using it for a while.

Easy plug and play set up. Worked immediately with my Mac and I started dragging and dropping files immediately.

It's a Seagate, what do you expect

By Dan

This is a quality drive. It is a shingled drive so don't expect continuous blazing speed. When you edit a file, it has to write it somewhere else then rewrite three tracks to make the old location available again. It does that between reads and writes, so it needs downtime for disk maintenance. I would not put it in a RAID array. Also filling it past 80% will slow it down. But for a backup drive or to store data that is not being constantly altered it does very good. To store my documents, photos and music it is great. You get a lot of data in a small package with this drive.

Can it be formatted for use with MacOS?
Asked by: Lawrence
when you format it with mac os does this apply? It was writtten by a user above: Be careful with WD My Book drives. They use hardware encryption and it doesn't matter if it's set on or off. If the enclosure dies before the hard drive, you cannot simply use another enclosure to retrieve your files. You will have to go through WD and will usually be charged an exorbitant amount for data retrieval. Most people recommend getting WD Elements drives
