Cons: The drive was not read off the bat. the light was on and did not register. i turned off the pc and the external was still on. What Hurts most is that confidence i had/have in WD in sending a quality product, LOL. while on i had to move the desk causing vibration back to the Ext HDD making me more irritated. Well it was the wire that was messed up. did not read it on a USB 2.0 or 3.0. luckily i had a spare cable and now it works. the cable that came with it is about 1mm and the one i have is about 2.5mm.
Other Thoughts: this is the 3rd Ext HDD i have from WD, there customer svc sucks so bad that i could not RMA my 2nd Ext HDD so i broke open the box and installed in the tower and did a quick disk repair and has been working for the past 3 years. I thought it was the cable for my 2nd but now i see it was the enclosure kit that is faulty. either way when you buy WD its to keep because RMA is practically impossible. 1 star off because of the cable 2nd star because i am reminded of WD customer svc.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is average and has owned this product less than 1 day.
Pros: Nicely packed. Easy installation. Comes with backup software. Unit comes necessary wire. Has security software. Perfect for backup with raid 1 mirrored setup. 2 x USB 3 PORT.
Cons: I used it for a month now. I read other two reviews complaining about the heat and fan. I keep on checking the heat with my hand. I do not feel it hot at all. Only low warm once a while. Have not discovered any bad point yet. Needs longer time for investigation.
Other Thoughts: I set up the unit for Raid 1 (mirrored). The actual storage is 2T. I had a expensive network storage, but inconvenience and has to have network knowledge to set up and use. This unit is very simple to use. It acts only as an external storage. I recommend this unit for all computer owners. There is no duo drive external storage drive with similar price. There are a lot of choice for network storage, but no choice for raid 1 external storage. I asked a lot of computer owners. Most of them has no backup or back up in a single drive, either internal or external. I has the same setup before. One day, the backup drive crash. I lost all the backup. This unit has the raid 1 mirrored setup. It is perfect. No more lost data.

Pros: Within is a standard WD Green 4tb SATA drive, model WD40RZRX.
Cons: This external drive really isn't made to be opened. Pry the back apart, then slide the cover off. The drive is held in place by rubber cushions. Disassembly is difficult, but if done carefully it can be reassembled.

Cons: Drive epically failed after 15 months. Checked the website and it seemed like all their drives had a 2 year warranty. Until I actually started the RMA process, which stated the drive was not covered as it is only a one year warranty.
Emailed support and was told because it was part of the "Expansion" line it is only a year...needless to say I will only purchase Western Digital from no on.
Other Thoughts: This is what I get for straying away from tried and true experience I have had with WD. Seagate got their shot and failed like their drive.
