WD quality inside and out
We know your data is important to you. So we build the drive inside to our demanding requirements for durability, shock tolerance and long-term reliability. Then we protect the drive with a durable enclosure designed for style and protection.

It does the job, and pretty well too. Good value as well. And by the way: Seagate actually has a higher failure rate than WD.
I tend to leave these things plugged in, which brings me to my only little gripe: It goes into "standby" by itself, which means that if you leave it plugged in but "unaccessed" for a while, and try to open the drive, it will make you wait about 10 seconds while the disc spins back up. A little side-effect of the eco-freak direction that the world is moving in, but still not a major thing.

I use this hard drive for media storage and it is permanently connected to my Raspberry Pi. It works perfectly and is 100% stable and very fast. I have formatted it to exFAT so that it works on my Mac as well as the Pi and there were no problems with formatting and it did not affect performance afterwards. All in all - this is a great external hard drive that is everything you need at a great price.

Cheaper to just buy this and take out the drive + discard the housing than just buying a standard desktop drive. Great value.

Exactly what I required and fast delivery from Takealot.
