1 out of 5 eggsSecond Verse Same As The First

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

Pros: At this point not sure there are any...

Cons: This is an update to my review on 3/22/2014. After returning and receiving a second unit (AFTER i HAD TO PAY TO SHIP IT BACK!!!) the second unit has now also failed. Time for another replacement. Third time is the charm, maybe? I would seriously discourage anyone against purchasing one of these. WD, what is the deal??

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my review on 3/22/2014.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks very well

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

Pros: Large Capacity Small Size

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I'm using this for disk image backups and transfers. I wouldn't use it for important info and I'd never use it as a single backup, but it's very inexpensive, large capacity, and so far it's been reliable

4 out of 5 eggs3 new drives each fail SMART test UPDATE

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

Pros: well packaged, nice design, no sharp corners, good price

Cons: not compatible with all USB3 controllers

Other Thoughts: This an update to my previous post.. It turns out the drives are basically good, but not compatible with the USB3 controller on my Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3 motherboard. They pass the WD-DLG Diagnostics on the USB2 ports. Would have bought a different product if I knew they would not work up to speed on my machine.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed SMART test after 1 month

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

Pros: Well, the sale price was great for the capacity.

Cons: Loaded up multiple backups on the drive and noticed it seemed to rather slow, so I ran the WD Data Lifeguard utility and it failed. RMA'ed and returned. Awaiting new one. Hate to have to pay to ship it back. Hope the new one does better.

Other Thoughts: WD should offer free shipping on RMAs.

4 out of 5 eggsImproper packaging for shipping

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

Pros: Nice little drive, not sure what the software is for since its a "plug & play". I purchased the drive to replace my Toshiba 1TB mirror backup drive which started to show signs of failure. I gave it a 4 egg for expectations

Cons: I received the box late in the evening on the 3rd day from the shipping date. Bad weather in the Midwest made the 3 day delivery almost impossible. The problem was the packaging! The "air pillow" packaging allowed the drive in it's packaging to bounce and move around in the shipping box.

4 out of 5 eggsFast Lil Devil

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

Pros: Lightweight, compact, easily fits into my laptop bag, or backpack, or pocket. Large capacity for compact form. Fast write speeds.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Purchased this while it was on sale around Christmas. Haven't had any problems with it. It works well and has high capacity with great data speeds. I easily put a majority of my video and music collection on it in a matter of minutes, not HOURS as is the case with similar products I've owned.

3 out of 5 eggs3 new drives each fail SMART test

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

Pros: Great sale price in December, so I got 3. Gave 2 eggs because they look great and were delivered fast and well packaged.

Cons: I was too busy to really test them all right away, but noticed windows 7 would freeze when I tried to use them. I reformatted 2, but still hard severe lockups. Then got WD Data Lifeguard software and checked all 3. They all failed. (I'm glad to say my 4 or 5 year old 500GB Caviar Black desktop drives all are testing error free.)

Other Thoughts: The price seemed too good to be true - just before Christmas. I've built scores of computers for work and for friends. I sure would have bragged about these nice looking little drives if they worked as expected I hate RMA's !!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive

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

Pros: Small yet holds tons of data. Use it to keep backups of my wife, sons, and my computer - I never have to worry about losing data. And a big plus is it keeps most of my data offline - away from the prying eyes of the NSA.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Everyone needs to keep their data backed up & offline as much as possible (away form the NSA). This is the perfect device
