Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Plastic case feels flimsy
  • Not much faster than older models
  • Limited cloud backup options
  • Negligible increase in performance over previous gen
  • The WD Backup software can't backup the entire system as an image and won't backup based on changes in real time. The new drive's performance, though quite fast, was a bit slower than the previous version
