      This is a great hard drive. I have a 2TB Seagate external hard drive I bought last year and the WD is so much quieter. The WD seems slow, not slower than the Seagate, just slow in general, I think it may just be the quantity of stuff I'm transferring onto the drive though so that may be on me.

      Bought this external drive when it's "on sale" and had a Staples coupon for some additional savings.

      Used WD internal drives and generally it has good durability at least in its internal drives. Durability is questionable for this external drive.

      Pros:

      1. Cost is dropping!

      2. Spacious 4Tb storage

      Cons:

      1. It supports USB 3 but it's slow as heck even when I have 3 high speed USB 3 ports on my each of my 2 laptops! Used diagnostic software and it reported that my USB ports were USB 3 high speed ports!

      The WD included cable says it supports USB 2 and USB 3 so don't know why it's Not achieving the higher USB 3 speed. But the diagnostic software is showing that when the cable is connected, it's showing USB 2 so it could be that WD is using faulty (i.e. CHEAP) cables that are not truly compatible with USB 3 standards. >:(

      Updated the USB port drivers and it's still relatively slow. ;(

      Update the HDD's driver and see if it'll improve the speed. Otherwise, for something that's advertised for USB 3 use, you're getting USB 2 slower speed! Darn WD!

      2. The power saving feature disconnects the drive and it takes about ~15-30 seconds for it to power up and reconnect! WTH?! Can't change the built-in power-save feature!

      It's basically getting the slow Green HDD (which gets 5400-5900 rpm) inside an external case at a relatively affordable price. The Major thing that's killing the drive currently is the SLOW speed which SHOULD BE faster!!

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

      Collecting data, music, videos, pictures, and who knows what else has required people to look for suitable storage solutions. Thank goodness Western Digital has the answer. And thanks to Staples for making it affordable.
      I am very pleased with the drive and as always, Staples was there to make this transaction a great experience!

            Very large hard drive, seems fast even using USB 2 connection. It supports USB 3 and USB 2. It runs very quiet, it doesn't have a switch to power it off but it powers off automatically if you shut your computer down
