Buy it – Not hot, no encryption, Single Drive model works well This review is about the SINGLE DRIVE 8TB version of the WD MyBook. Green & white cardboard box, black plastic drive case. No Encryption. Go ahead & buy it, it is ok. :-)SPEED: The drive is faster than I expected. It took about 1 day to copy 5.14 TB to it via USB 3. Those were mostly music files 3MB to 60mb plus some videos. I did not time it or watch it closely. You can easily play movies or music from this drive without skipping.HEAT: the drive did NOT get hot. Not…

Does not pass WD diagnostic tests out of the box…. Just got it this afternoon. I have learned from bad experience that it is critical to test hard drives when you get them.I ran the WD Diagnostics and it hangs at 10%. I then ran WD Lifeguard short test, and it failed that test, with error Checkpoint =97 did not complete smart test. However, the smart test by itself is OK.My computer also rebooted doing these tests.Will do some further tests and I contacted WD, but looks like this is going back.

… little over 3 months and the drive has gone bad. 10-15 days for replacement with all data lost … A little over 3 months and the drive has gone bad. 10-15 days for replacement with all data lost because Asurian insurance bought thru Amazon wants it go thru Western Digital since in the first year. Customer Service for both Western Digital and Asurian let this customer down. No more wasted $$ on insurance.
