Reviewer: cbdilger Location: West Lafayette, IN Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: 5-6 months
Rating: 5/5 So far so good August 20, 2017 Replaced a failing 3TB HDD in a Time Capsule A1470 with this 8TB drive. Nice to have the extra space. This drive is a bit louder than the old one, but has worked flawlessly so far.

I would recommend this item to a friend! Customer Videos:
