5 out of 5 eggsBuilt Tough

Pros: This has been my daily companion, and thankfully is built tough. Don't let the picture fool you, it looks good but it will hold up too. Great transfer speed, never had to "scan drive for errors" or lose data. Would gladly buy another if this one ever dies.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Schab

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Not huge, not ugly, quiet enough.

Cons: Not tiny, formatting is dodgy, as is build quality. I wish the cord would stay in better. It could also be longer. There's better for the money.

Other Thoughts: It gets the job done.

1 out of 5 eggsFast drive, but failed quickly.

Pros: Small form factor
Only one cable to worry about
Plenty of space for media and backup files

Cons: Non standard USB cable, unable to substitute other cables for the WD one
Failed within 3 months of purchase

Other Thoughts: I've always been a fan of WD, but am frustrated that the drive has failed this quickly. Additionally, Newegg return policy only gives me 30 days from purchase to RMA a device. Time to slog through WD support.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the WD Elements SE Portable, as this is not the typical experience with the product.
The supplied USB 3.0 cable is standard for this form factor. We sell these cables through our Online store or directly through our customer support, and would be more than happy to assist you with a replacement cable if you are not able to find a replacement from your local retail outlet. As a troubleshooting step we recommend running either our WINDLG diagnostics software or Macs built-in Disk Utility to check your drives health.

5 out of 5 eggsA really nice disk

Pros: I've had this disk now for nearly 2 years. It's quiet and vibration free. It also doesn't come with bloatware - no excess & confusing software. Just basic storage.

Plugged it in and it just worked. It's been filled and emptied several times and currently serves as a media disk.

I like it enough that I'll be picking up another one shortly. Especially now that the price is somewhat reasonable again.

It does not come with a hi-gloss finish. Instead it has a flat/matte texture. This is great because you don't feel guilty about marring a pristine finish. And scuffs & scratches don't stand out on a matte finish as much as they would on a gloss finish.

It also doesn't have the stupid blue lights which were all the rage for a good number of years beginning in the early 2000's.

I recently checked S.M.A.R.T. values on my disk and found them to be within spec. Nice.

Cons: Not many, it's just USB 2.0, so don't expect high-speed performance. Maybe newer models do 3.0. And of course the universal complaint of flimsy connector is never ending. Though mine hasn't gone bad yet.

A word of caution to buyers though, I have several other Elements series which like to power down after 10 seconds. While great for power savings and whatnot, the constant spin-up delay and pauses in drag-n-drop operations are beyond annoying.

So if you get one that does that, exchange it as a defective product as it's not practically usable. Either that, or delegate it to holding backup images. You can also use software to tickle the disk and keep it active. But that's not an elegant workaround.

Other Thoughts: Simplicity & reliability in an ever increasingly complex world is a good thing. This disk is simple. This is a good thing.

5 out of 5 eggsCable not proprietary...

Pros: Great Drive! Fast, reliable, super light compared to a WD passport.

I've had one passport fail on me, but this elements drive is going on 9 months with no issues.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: For those readers worried about the "proprietary" USB cable: IT'S NOT PROPRIETARY

All USB 3.0 Male Powered Micro-B connectors look like this. If you take a closer look inside the (blue) connect at the other end of the cable (the end that plugs into the computer), you'll see some copper pins that are not found in the USB 2.0 connectors.

USB 3.0 has pins whereas 2.0 only has 4 pins. This is because in addition to the 5V power pins, 3.0 contains the old 2.0 data channels in addition to completely separate "SuperSpeed" data channels for the 3.0 operation. The 2.0 and 3.0 data components are merely separated out on the micro connector.

Bottom line: don't let the short cable deter you from a great purchase. You can definitely find longer USB 3.0 cables all over the place. Here's a 6-footer from newegg for only $6 shipped!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in MacBook Pro

Pros: Purchased this as my MacBook Pro Mid 2012 would not work with an external Toshiba 1 TB USB-3 drive. Several others at my work were using the WD external drives without problems on their MAC. I have been using this drive for about 2 months now and it works great.

Cons: None
