2 out of 5 eggsGood idea... just needs improvements

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

Pros: Great when u need to save photo's , videos, and documents as back ups
very portable

Cons: Not very good at dissipating heat
When transferring huge files from one drive to another, this thing gets really hot

Other Thoughts: It starting dying after I backed up all my photos , videos, and important documents (u know, the clicking noise)
Might of been too much, plus the heating up issue
They should make some vents in the case to help dissipate heat

And this was supposed to be the back up...

Never gonna do this again... back it up the old way.
Use the bigger 3.5 hdd, They are more durable and reliable

5 out of 5 eggsVery Useful As A Back Up Drive

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

Pros: I've had this external HDD for about 2 years now and I use it every day as a back up for my desktop PC.
When I got it, I was surprised to see how compact it really was. It looks larger in the product description.
It's a 2.5" form factor and I was expecting a 3.5" FF. Which makes it handy to to pack in a laptop bag and use portably.
The dual 3.0 USB connections make it possible to use with my existing PC's power supply alone.
Also, the transfer rates are at or near the same as my internal PC HDD. So doesn't take too long to back up large files.
The case enclosure is adequate and lightweight. It can withstand most minor impacts when dropped accidentally.
I suggested the same device to a friend who was needing additional storage and they seem to like theirs as well.

Cons: The USB cord could be longer and the connecting end to the device proprietary and not a micro USB connection.
This may have been done as a safety issue to keep from shorting out the drive with improper connections.
Still, it's a minor inconvenience if the cord is misplaced, damaged and moving the device around with athe limited cord length.
Also, the enclosed software is trial only and unnecessary for most needs.

Other Thoughts: When I first installed this device to my PC running Windows 7, I had to format it to make it work.
Cut after watching reading and watching some tutorial videos on how to do this I was up and running.
So that could be an issue for some novice users expecting the device to be plug and play.

4 out of 5 eggsStill Going Strong

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

Pros: I bought this hard drive in the beginning of 2013. and it has survived alot of abuse. No issues with transfer speeds or damage from being dropped.
It's pretty sturdy.

Cons: The only con is that the wire is too short. I tried usb a knockoff wire from online but it didn't transfer as fast so I stayed with the original wire.

Other Thoughts: I think this series is tough. Some have mentioned that the hard drive tends to die. It hasn't to me yet and i've put it through alot of work.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat speeds, quiet

This review is from: WD 1TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - 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.
