The affordable beast
Reviewed in India on 20 August 2018
Ordered this on freedom sale and got this for only 3600. I was deciding between WD or Seagate but ended up on this as WD is somewhat more reputable than the latter.
Now coming onto the HDD it's as good as it can be , the read write speeds are amazing and touches 100 MBps when copying one big file but slows down when copying multiple smaller file but this is not a fault of HDD so it's all good. LED notification light is also not that aggressively lit so you can easily work at night in dark. No vibration or any annoying sounds so it's definitely a plus.
One thing I didn't like that much is the build quality. The plastic used is cheap and flimsy and does not feel sturdy in hand so if it falls down goodbye forever. Plastic quality could have been better.
You need to register you Product at WD portal to avail warranty in future so do that as soon as you get it. It provides 2 years warranty instead of 3 years like Seagate so that's also somewhat off-putting.
So overall nice for cheap unimportant data backup but I wouldn't trust this for important sensitive personal data as build quality is cheap but biggest plus is its affordability in fact go for Seagate or WD they both are good.
Well so far so good but if any problem arise in future will update... happy Independence day.
