1 out of 5 eggsFailed on me within one week of owning it

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: There is plenty of storage if you absolutely need it, but that goes without saying. The USB 3.0 Also makes transferring data practically instantaneous. Of course it goes without saying the 50$ price tag made me very happy to buy this

Cons: I don't blame this entirely on the manufacturer. But unfortunately, the one I recieved failed within a week. Problem is, I am more than likely unable to replace the item because the original box is now in a trash heap somewhere in Illinois. Obviously I'm not getting it back. So I'm going to return it with the cable it came with as well as the hard drive itself, and hope for the best. I lost very precious data and very precious pictures that I will never be able to get back. I was foolish enough to transfer all of my data for reformatting a laptop, then transferring most of the data back on to it. Unfortunately, when I finished transferring the data on to the hard drive and done everything I needed to do, I plug the hard drive in and it makes a clicking noise and shuts down without the power source being removed. For those not too tech savvy, that means the hard drive basically fails to boot up and will not boot up ever no matter how many times you try. So you are essentially in deep trouble if you lose something very important like I did.

Other Thoughts: I really wish this would work. But if I could get a replacement, it would make me very happy with Western Digital. I understand if they can't, but being that this caused me to lose very important and very special data to me, I would at least like a replacement out of all this. I can't blame Western Digital if they don't. Policies are policies and thats not their fault that I was foolish enough to throw away the box by mistake.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it should

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Small, lightweight, and shows no real heat emissions after being on and running for a few hours. Transfer speeds at USB 3.0 are very respectable.

Cons: I use this Ext HDD for hot swaps and USB loaded viral issues on infected PCs... its nice to load into a PC and have an external program run protections without making the OS or registry flare up

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: sorry to say none

Cons: the drive has backup software on it so makes it easy to use how ever when you try and restore your system. It may as well be written in an unknown language. My experience with this hard drive has been all bad.and i can not recommend this hard drive to anyone that needs it for or to back up their system... My experience with this hard drive SUCKS !!!!!!!

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: compact and good price

Cons: included WD SmartWare Pro software will not recognize NAS drives.
Worthless for backing up mapped drives using their software.

1 out of 5 eggsDirectory corruption

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Fast
Inexpensive

Cons: Experienced a sudden directory corruption that made the entire disk unreadable through windows, thus forcing me to reformat and lose all my installed data, not even a month into use.

Ran SeaTools from Seagate using long and short generic tests to check integrity. To which it failed both. So I'm just going to have to assume I got a defective drive. Quite a bummer.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to backup your data to multiple sources and don't make the same mistake as I did, leaving all your data's integrity in a flimsy little external. I shouldn't have waited so long to get that new internal drive.

Oh well, live and learn.
