"Need storage for your Zoom meetings and lessons? Buy this!"

alan l nash | 6 August 2020 | Total storage capacity: 24 TB

  • Pros:
    Fast, quiet, reliable
  • Pros:
    I already had a 16TB version so I knew I would be happy
  • Pros:
    And those extra USB3 ports are so useful
  • Pros:
    Does a good job of saving energy and the hard drives
  • Con:
    For what you get what it costs there are no complaints

I already use an earlier version and the drives just keep driving. I notice the USB3 transfer rate is very good and consistent.
