I bought this in August 2018, now in February 2019 (6 months later) the enclosure died on me.
Fun fact: The encryption key died with the enclosure as well so my data is lost on both of these drives.
Now you're thinking, oh, i'll just disable encryption... well... nope, you just can't. Encryption is enabled on these drives by default and it cannot be turned off.
Paying $660 for a RAID-1 array that has chances of losing all your data is a bad idea. I learned the hard way so you don't have to.
Avoid this if you want to safeguard your data.
Edit: I just received the replacement 12TB MyBook Duo from the Western Digital RMA process. They sent me back a new enclosure but the drives inside are RECERTIFIED white labeled Red drives. This is yet another deception to receive recertified drives after a replacement of a 6 month old $600 product. I also do not trust their enclosure anymore, due to the hardware encryption mentionned above, i am spending another $200 on a 3rd party OWC Dual drive enclosure that does support hardware RAID-1 without encryption. Overall, i will have spend about $900 with the original product, shipping of RMA and 3rd party enclosure to finally have a 6TB RAID-1 array and i'm on recertified drives... not even new. Want to play the lottery? This could happen to you. Stay away from this product.
This 4T came formatted in ex-fat and "ReadOnly" Tried everything to get it into Write/Read...no joy.
Went thru the help stuff to no avail. Called WD went thru the stuff that should've fixed it, but it didn't.
The WD guy called it faulty. Shame, it's the first WD product that failed me in over 20 years.
Leaving the drives unformatted might be a good idea. Let the end user decide how to format the drives they bought.
I am not a causual user. Two of my drives run as expanded memory on Bell Expressvu and Fibe receivers and have been performing that job flawlessly and reliably for years. They take a fair amount of abuse. Both receivers recognize and work with the My Books beautifully.
My third drive was given the unenviable task as serving as my animation drive for my work producing animation, this thing reads and writes huge quantities of data A LOT and the thing is just a solid performer and drive metrics show that no matter how hard it works, it stays cool.
This last one simply serves as a backup to everything on my PC's internal drive. At this price and capacity, there was no hesitation to get another one to safe guard my important data. I am more than willing to make the safe bet that a 6th is in my future at some point.
This latest (4TB) drive is being used as a stand alone media drive for my smart TV and all the space and performance makes it work as if it was an integrated component, As always, I could not be happier.
I have recommended these drives to friends and those that have bought them - love them. You will too...
It does not work with Windows10 NTFS file system that is default on Windows10 installation.
Example: When computer goes into "sleep" mode, it will require to disconnect the drive and reboot computer to run operating system. Computer hangs, it stays at BIOS boot up step. I returned the product.
The drive failed within 4 months, destroying all of my data! Can't recommend this drive to anyone. You must pay for shipping to them in their RMA process too, so that's even more money to receive an untrustworthy replacement (same model, and potentially refurbished!)
Previous review (assuming the drive works...):
The drive is great value for the money at 184$ CAD, but be aware that its head somehow shakes the enclosure a lot (relatively) when working which results in "mini-punches" against the furniture it's standing on. In my case, I installed it in an IKEA TV unit where my previous (Seagate) drive was. Contrary to the Seagate, the WD made lots of noise which was amplified by the TV unit it was sitting on. Adding some dollar store felt pads under the drive helped tremendously. Not sticking them on seemed to help "disconnect" the drive from the furniture even more. Still, this is not a silent hard drive by default and it *can* make a lot of noise depending on where you install it. It's still not as silent as the Seagate, but at least it's tolerable now.

The clicking is comparable to louder desktop and NAS HGST drives on the noisy end of the scale. That I’m not even complaining about.
This drive has a constant humming from the rotation that is awful in the living room for movies.
This is worse than a WD Black put in an enclosure which are normally louder.
This is louder than my previous 3tb WD USB, 6tb Seagate USB and NAS with two drives combined.
Aunque el tener sectores dañados es un riesgo común en este tipo de discos mecánicos, no te esperas que ocurra estando prácticamente nuevo. Pésimo producto.
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.
