I recently used the WD Universal Firmware Updater software. It was very easy to use and the firmware update was successful. The software was intuitive and the instructions were clear. The amount of time it took to complete the update was reasonable. It was also very helpful to have the option to save a copy of the update. The software was also stable and didn't crash during the update. Overall, I was very satisfied with the experience.
