Top reviews from the United States

These drives used to be a fantastic bargain.
Originally, they shipped with the WD Red drives (originally), and were an incredible bargain for the quality of drive that you got. Then WD decided to cut corners. Then even more corners. They started shipping with white label drives (instead of the NAS grade ones), then there started to be disk integrity errors.
The last two that I got (I like to keep the same types of devices instead of having a hodgepodge of different vendors) were both DOA, with misaligned USB pins so bad that you couldn't even insert the accompanying USB cable. The image that I'm attaching with this review may be hard to see, but the USB port in the drive case is defective.
All in all, only the very first drive that I got (out of a total of 6) has actually worked with any stability and reliability. Unless you plan on spinning the roulette wheel and buying one of these to see if you can rip out a WD Red drive and put it into your own NAS box, I'd avoid these like the plague.
Anyhow, using this to add storage to an Xbox One S. Working good so far.
All 3 were marked WDBCKA0080HBK-NESN, all 3 said they were made in Thailand.
2 contained WD WD80EFAX Red label drives, Firmware 83.H0A83
1 contained WD WD80EMAZ White label drive, Firmware 83.H0A83
All 3 are working well in a Synology DS418j NAS without any mods to the sata connector pins (ie the 3.3V pin mod). No vibration that I can notice and very quiet. Great product.
On the other hand, the 8TB EASYSTORE is super quiet while the 8TB My Book Desktop drive had an annoying low pitched vibration that could be heard and felt as it sat on my desk. In comparison, the EASYSTORE is dead silent and I don't even notice it. The 8TB WD EASYSTORE costs more than the 8TB My Book Desktop HDD but it is well worth it to me . It is rumored that the 8TB EASYSTORE uses the higher quality WD Red NAS disk which is known to be quiet and reliable.
I had bought an 8tb product.
But it did not work. I wanted to return it, but I could not.
And I tried to disassemble the product.
It contained an 80gb product made in 2007 instead of an 8tb product.
The seller is a fraudster.
This model is one of the Desktop models (WD also makes a portable EasyStore product line), intended to sit on a desktop very close by your desktop or tower computer. It is a small vertical/tower case, about the same size as a typical cable modem, that includes a Western Digital hard disk drive (HDD) and a power supply (although it still needs an external 'wall wart' style power supply). It comes with the power supply and a short USB type 2 cable, perhaps a couple feet long. It also comes bundled with a few WD software applications that are zipped into a single file that is pre-loaded on the internal drive. There are two versions of the software; for Windows and Mac systems.
The internal HDD comes pre-formatted for use with Windows computers. If you want to use it on a Mac computer, you will need to reformat the HDD before starting to use it.
To use this product, you place it on a surface next to your computer, plug in the AC power supply and plug the included USB cable between this unit and any USB port on the computer. There is no power switch; it is on whenever it is plugged in.
On Windows, the internal HDD is immediately recognized as a storage device and it will appear in File Explorer (Windows Explorer) and will be available as a drive to any Windows application, and you can use it just like any USB HDD or big 'thumb drive'.
However, the product is primarily designed to provide automatic, scheduled backup. To do this, you need to run the EXE file that comes pre-loaded on the internal HDD, and this installs a Discovery application on your computer. I believe that this program's function is to continually scan your HDD (or any drives) and then build and maintain an index file which resides on the internal HDD. Then, from Discovery, you can install a couple more applications; WD Backup and WD Utilities. The Backup app lets you schedule how the automatic backup will work; how often, when, and which drive(s) to back up. The Utilities provides several maintenance features that you will probably never need.
With Backup, operation is simple. First you get to choose which of two storage places to back up to, and this can be either the EasyStore HDD or your DropBox account's 'cloud' storage space (if you have one). One you have selected the EasyStore (assuming you chose that option), then you are shown a list of drives on the computer that are available to be backed up; you choose one or more of them. Then you are asked about three questions regarding when and how often to run the automatic backup. You can also click a screen button to force an immediate unscheduled backup. You might, for example, choose to do one backup every day at 2 AM, or once every Saturday at 10 PM, etc. The EasyStore will immediately get busy searching your drive(s) and building its database, but it will not necessarily start copying files until the first scheduled time.
It may seem at first that no backup has taken place, because EasyStore hides all your backed up (copied) files under about five levels of folders on the internal HDD. But once you know where to look, it is easy to view any backed up file(s).
Backups occur automatically and transparently. Even if you are at the computer, you probably will not know that the EasyStore Backup app and HDD are quietly going about their business in the background. There is no status except a cryptic LED on the front of the EasyStore. However, the Backup app will show the date and time when the most recent backup took place.
Once all files have been initially copied over to the EasyStore, subsequent backups involve only those files that have been added or modified since the previous backup. Because of this, most scheduled backups will not take very long. The Backup app does NOT appear to ever remove or rename files on the EasyStore HDD......if you renamed a file on your computer's drive, it seems that Backup will regard it as a new file, and will copy it over without deleting the old file. And if you delete a file on your computer's drive, it appears that Backup will not delete the backup copy on the EasyStore. Also, Backup will not make any changes to drives on your computer; it only affects the EasyStore drive.
I have had a few of these for different computers, and so far they have all worked just fine. Customer service/technical support is pretty easy to get when needed, although they are not open 24/7.
I like this product as a means to inexpensively back up my computer without the security concerns of using cloud-based backup schemes.
