I was planning on buying another G-Technology 6TB drive with Thunderbolt and USB (with the heat sink at the bottom). I notice this particular 6TB drive is no longer in stock anywhere. Has WD decided to stop producing this 6TB model?
How does the version with out the heat sink compare to the one that’s out of stock?
What about the the other 6TB drive with only USB compare?
How big a deal is not having the heat sink? Does the aluminum casing help a lot with heat dissipation?
The drive would be used for backup and some photo and video editing.
