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.

3 out of 5 eggsBuy 2 and mirror information if you plan to use as back-up plan.

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

Pros: This device is a no brainer. It comes equipped to function on Windows OS and can easily be reformatted into exFAT from the start to be used on Windows OS and Mac OS, which is what I did. Data transfer is fast.

Cons: I bought 2 of these drives because I have had pretty consistent bad luck with every USB external drive I've purchased from WD, Seagate, and the like in that at least 1 will fail pretty early in its anticipated lifespan. Such was the case with one of my drives. I purposely copied 800GB of data to 2 of these drives, fully expecting one of them to not last very long, and sure enough 1 of my drives died after 26days.

Other Thoughts: My recommendations
1. If you want a primary source to back up to, buy 2 of these drives and mirror the data on the 2 drives.
2. If you want to just use this drive to transfer large packets of information from one source to another, just get 1 drive, but don't expect it last you very long. This drive does not seem to be able to handle high frequency use for moving information from one source to another.
