      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!!

      I love this HD. I purchased it as a automatic backup hard drive for my Mac Pro. So far it is working great. I will be buying another one soon.

      Comments about WD My Book 4TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive, Black (WDBFJK0040HBK):

      I wonder about all the negative comments here and on other websites, saying drives were dead on arrival or failed in the first month or two. I have 16 Western Digital drives, including four of these, and none has yet failed in a period of 6 years. To me some (or many) of the negative reviews are suspect (people who hate Western Digital? Maybe only the small percentage of unsatisfied customers tend to post reviews?). Don't treat drives poorly, don't drop them on the floor, don't toss them in your car trunk. The only alternative is solid state drives for HUGE sums of money. Right now, I would say that the 4TB size is most practical for film/TV and music storage. For family photos, invest in a solid state drive.

      Comments about WD My Book 4TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive, Black (WDBFJK0040HBK):

      The user interface was very good. I was not as pleased with not being able to start the backup right after I set it up. I have it backing up data from one of our servers set to run each morning at 2:00 a.m. I was not able to run the initial backup. I do like the way it allows you to choose which items to backup instead of having to use an all-in-one option. For those who need it, it will allow continuous backup for your files. I also like the way you can tie your Dropbox account in with it as well. I have other clients that I will recommend this drive to.
