This is my 2nd attempt with a WD (Western Digital) 6 TB hard drive. The first one I ordered a installed several weeks ago erred as I was initializing the hard drive with Windows 7 Disk Management. The error message was: "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error." I called WD technical support. The tech said it was defective.
Then I ordered this replacement hard drive and had the same identical error! I was puzzled. I didn't think I could get two hard drives in a row that were defective, regardless if WD or Seagate. I concluded it had to be an installation type problem.
I called WD Technical Support again. This time the Tech (a different person) suggested I try to install this on a different computer, so I used a USB 3.0 external adapter to connect this to my HP Pavilion Laptop. It did not error! I was able to initialize the hard drive. However, it did error during the formatting, which I thought was a smaller problem.
I then installed this again in my Dell 7010. This 6TB hard drive as already initialized by my HP Laptop. All I had to do was to attempt the format again, using the GTP (GUID Partition Table). It worked! I am a happy camper.
I am now transferring files to this hard drive. I will update this review in several months.
I stopped using hard drives as my bootable drive two years ago once I upgraded to SSD so I don't need a hard drive for performance anymore I use it now as data drives as a home to transfer my huge media files to and it works very well for that purpose.
I bought two of these so far and one them is installed in but the other one hasn't been installed yet because I haven't had the time yet to do it but I can't wait to add that one in. I am planning on getting two more in the next few months so that my computer has a total of 24 TBs to draw from. I use some really big media files and I can use 2-3 TBs very quickly and these hard drives handle that very well. I was so glad when I first found out a year ago that 6 TBs would be on the market in 2014 and I got my first one last month. I can't wait for the 8 TBs ones to come out.
I used to use external hard drives but I no longer need them once I upgraded my computer two years back and was able to add in at least a total of 6-8 hard drives in my computer. I can just put everything on these plus the externals usually failed on me in no time and stopped working under a year. They just weren't reliable like these internals are.
Get these hard drives guys and you won't regret.
