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.

1 out of 5 eggsConnection problems

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

Pros: It's USB 3.0. It's 1TB.

Cons: Connection between the drive and the cable failed after 30 days.

The hard drive connected properly when I received it. After a while however, the connection between the drive and the cable degraded. When I plug it in, the plug needs to be jiggled just right to connect the hard drive. After it is connected, at random times the drive will cut off, saying "Disc not ejected properly". Now the connection barely works at all. This is after I had already stored many gigs of work on it. Also, this happened after 30 days of ownership, thus I am unable to issue an RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent USB External

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

Pros: Runs cool and fast. Great price from NewEgg.

Cons: Not one thing negative.

Other Thoughts: This unit is perfect for a Laptop. More than adequate space for my images of the system. I highly recommend it. Wish more of my friends would have the common sense to back up to an external drive of this high quality.

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
