        I have about 500 CD's, over 100 Cassette tapes and about 500 LP's which I am converting to digital-Wav.format. It takes a lot of storage. Have used Western Digital for about 5 years. Have tried Seagate but Western Digital has a few more features-easy password set up for example.

        Comments about WD My Book Essential 4TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

        Just bought this drive last week from Staples (last one too, seems they're going out of stock), and so far, I have no complaints whatsoever. I was able to transfer everything from my 2 TB hard drive to this one with no errors, and the drive is very fast if I have it plugged into a USB 3.0 port.

        I have had it for less than a week, but I have two Western Digital My Book Essentials (2 TB and 640 GB, two years and five years respectively), and they have yet to fail on me. I trust Western Digital, and am pretty sure that this will last me for just as long as the other two.
