5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN Black

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

Pros: Very Small, Slim and light.
USB3.0
Its short USB cable disconnects so you can replace it if worn out.
No need for external power supply.
No backup software so no price increase paying for something you don't need or want, other WD models have BU software.

Cons: The short cable is just that about 6-8 inches so you need to have your laptop and the drive on a flat surface.
This would be a nice drive to plug into your router as a network drive but cable may (I stress may) be long enough or it might.

Other Thoughts: The short cable is short due to POWER requirements for the drive. you could use a longer cable but you may get failures due to voltage droop of a longer cable due to inductance of said cable reacting to a sudden large increase in current, like during a drive spin up. But this is a sweet little backup drive that fits in your pocket, use it for back up or file transfers.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for storage not speed

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

Pros: Self enclosed.
Portable.
No data lost.
Low Cost.
Have conected to my router for NAS backup.

Cons: Formatted drive, and erased the partitions and software.
Disk drive is slow.
No upgradability. The disk you got is what you will have forever.
Don't use the software.

Other Thoughts: I used this as a back-up drive. I now have it hooked up to my router for NAS.
Don't expect any bench mark specs. It is slow.
I have an old 1tb 2.5 HDD in an enclosure that I use for my portable storage needs now.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesomeness

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

Pros: Fast response time. hasn't failed yet and I leave it running 24/7. I even do hours of hard drive free space washing and it still runs without delay

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Don't buy if you have any intention on opening it up and using it as an internal SATA drive because there isn't an internal SATA connection port.

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

Pros: Haven't had a problem yet, Which is really all it takes to have a good hard drive. Doesn't get hot and stays plugged in throughout the day. Its actually smaller (in physical size of course) than my other 500gb Toshiba external hard drive.

Cons: none

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
