Arrived on time, fitted within minutes. Whisper quiet. Fast. Loss of backed up data would be a real disaster for us and this is just what we need. It is expensive bu well worth the money.

Bought 2 of these to set up a raid 1 array. One drive was dead so couldnt. Tried to format the other as a simple drive, got to 54% and died. Lost all confidence in WD now
