Western Digital WD My Book 4TB Review
The WD My Book 4TB is an external hard drive from Western Digital Technologies. Boasting a storage capacity of 4 TB, this file backup and storage device is the perfect companion anyone could ask for.
With a USB 3.0 interface, My Book boasts a data transfer speed of up to 5 GB per second if it is a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port that it is connected to. Experience by some users show that writing a 4GB file takes, on average, 40 seconds. It is also compatible with USB 2.0 ports, so there should not be any worries on that matter. Users have the option of an automatic continuous backup, or on a scheduled basis, depending on your personal preferences. Complete file backup using this external hard drive is made possible by the pre-installed WD SmartWare Pro software, which supports both local and cloud backups. System level backup is also supported through the use of the Acronis True Image WD Edition software.
Naturally, it is important that files remain secure and protected. My Book offers both via password protection and hardware encryption. This way, your private files are kept private and free from tampering or abuse. We cannot truly appreciate the benefits of the Western Digital WD My Book 4TB External Hard Drive without taking a look at the tools that it contains. The suite of tools in this external hard drive is contained in the WD Utilities app, and they enable users to perform operations such as monitoring the status of the external hard drive itself, set timers and passwords, and the like. The quiet operation of this external hard drive is also a good thing, since it does not consume too much power or subject your PC to too much work.
Looking at the Western Digital WD My Book 4TB External Hard Drive, it is easy to see why many people would prefer it over the other fussy hard drives available today. It has a sleek, no-nonsense design, and setting it up is as easy as 1-2-3. It has a plug-and-play mechanism, so all you have to do is to plug the drive into any available outlet and connect it to the USB port of your computer or similar device. Its straightforward look makes up for its slightly heavy 2-pound weight. The weight may also be credited for the durability and solidity of the build of My Book, since it boasts more than acceptable levels of tolerance against shocks and impacts. The fact that it can be bought at a good price, and that it comes with a 2-year limited warranty, are also major points in its favor.
More than just offering plenty of room for backing up and storing your files, the Western Digital WD My Book 4TB External Hard Drive also delivers high performance and long-term reliability, something that cannot be said for most other external hard drives out there today.
