The drive is showing as unreadable and macOS has failed to repair it. I have never encountered issues this substantial in a new drive before and given the obviously higher than usual price point I expected quality. I am sorry to say I was mistaken.

      Power Issues

      Because this drive and the MacBook have only a single USB-C drive, and Apple does not sell a USB-C to 2x USB-C cable or adapter, the drive can only be used dire Because this drive and the MacBook have only a single USB-C drive, and Apple does not sell a USB-C to 2x USB-C cable or adapter, the drive can only be used directly with the MacBook on battery power, not with external power. You can connect the drive to a USB-3 & USB-C to USB-C connector (e.g. USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter), then use the connector to connect to external power and the MacBook. Not very elegant. With these caveats, the drive seems good; nice to have 4 TB for big cameras.

      I'm surprised of all the negative reviews.

I bought other WD ones at the time a I bought two 4TB in Dec 2016 because I liked it so much. It is very quite. The platter is centred so it hardly vibrates. I bought other WD ones at the time and they vibrated a lot and returned them. They never have shown any problems or failures like people mentioned here. Maybe the later ones are bad, or it is not meant to be carried. I am seeing 110Mb/s for transfer tests, which I think plenty faster than other 3.0 external drives (60mb/s) I have. I do agree with the sharpness on the edges as they kind of seem a bit dangerous. My drives has been just on my desk 100% of the time, so I do not have the issue. It looks awesome to look at compared to other portable drives I have.

Especially when you reach down deep into your backpack to grab something. I’ve cut myself twice in the last two days. They’re annoying papercuts that bleed enough to get blood all over whatever you grab before realizing your bleeding, I’m going to put some scotch 35 vinyl tape over the edges now for safety so so much for the sleek design. Hard to believe the design engineers let this thing go to production!
