Anyone who works with lots of media files and content knows how expensive storage can be. Looking at reviews on Amazon and Best Buy, people seem to generally have positive things to say about this hard drive. I haven’t used WD’s easystore line, but I’ve used their My Passport Ultra hard drives and have had no complaints so far.
While the failure rate for WD hard drives are generally low, if you’re storing 8TB of really important files onto one hard drive, consider either having a secondary back up or paying for a file recovery protection plan.
Also note that HDDs will not be as fast as SSDs. If quantity and price are higher priorities for you at this point in time, then the 8TB WD External Hard Drive seems like a pretty solid deal.
This deal will end today on December 7, 2017.
