WD My Book 6TB benchmark

I faced the problem that for my ever growing library of photographs I need more space every year. I decided to purchase WD My Book 6TB from Costco. from the first look it seems to be ok hard drive and I decided to give a bit of test to see how it performs. Everything is tested via USB3, because this is only the interface this hard drive supports. I did not look inside to see what kind of HDD is inside. I will leave it for later. Here is the product code for the reference: WDBBGB0060HBK-NESN
