5 out of 5 eggsGreat speeds, quiet

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

Pros: I've had it for almost a year. It's been through a lot. Used for data, reformatted for Xbox 360, soft-formatted back to NTFS and it still has great speeds (90 MB/s). Super quiet

Cons: When I plugged it into my Xbox (powered off) it would spin up for some odd reason. It shuts down once the device has been power cycled, though. I am assuming that the Xbox must supply USB power for the controllers when it is off.

4 out of 5 eggsBest OTA DVR

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

Pros: I've cut cable over a year ago, and was missing a DVR. I came across Tablo, and got it. They have recently upgraded the Roku App and it also works with FireTV. The Tablo becomes a network device and needs something to watch it on (Roku, FireTV, computer, smart phone, etc). The EPG is only $5 per month or yearly or lifetime options also available. Made in Canada - NOT CHINA.

Cons: Small company - sometimes getting incorrect guide data takes a while. It's currently been over 2 months and still waiting. I think Christmas will be here first.

Other Thoughts: Tech support only open weekdays during hours I work. They really should have at least one or two weeknights, and at least one Saturday per month of tech support, but like I said, they are a small company.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

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

Pros: USB 3.0
Product gives really fast transfers, and streams movies to my computer with ease. Has kept all files safe and secure and I've never had any issues with missing/ lost files.
Works Great!

Cons: Sometimes does this weird thing where I can't see any files on the drive. It still shows the storage space as is being in use, but can't see the files in windows viewer. Easily fixed by disconnecting and reconnecting, but annoying none the less.

Other Thoughts: Docked an egg because of the issue mention in the Cons, other than that this is a 5 egg product.
Buy with confidence.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good.

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

Pros: - no power source needed
- fast USB 3.0 transfers
- does not get hot, even with extended use
- nice and compact 1TB of storage

Cons: There is a bright white LED on it that is brighter than the moon. Had to put a piece of black electrical tape over it because it was so obnoxiously bright. External storage does not need to double as a beacon for ships lost at sea, Western Digital.

Other Thoughts: It's a 1TB USB 3.0 storage and backup device. It does what you need it to do and does so quickly and smoothly.

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

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

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.
