Pros

Extended warranty options are great for users with multiple drives - WD offers several free updates for users who register their products

1 agrees

Provides long-lasting, consistent service - many users report perfect functionality after months upon months of intensive use

1 agrees

Excellent energy conservation - power down after several minutes without use, boots up in less than 10 seconds when re-accessed

1 agrees

Unit is extremely quiet - many users need to touch the unit or check the rear-monted LED to confirm that the drive is running

1 agrees

Maintains relatively cool unit temperature during extensive file transfers - similar models from Seagate and Hitachi are prone to excessive heating issues

1 agrees

Users have full access to all internal storage space - preferred largely to similar models that are pre-loaded with a firmware partition that limits capacity

1 agrees

"Plug-and-play" design is true to advertisement - instantly recognized by most DVR models for direct drive streaming

Cons

Seemingly design to only sit in a flat orientation - may disappoint long-time WD users who are familiar with the versatile placement of most products
