3 out of 5 eggsHungry

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: Small, light weight

Cons: POWER hungry, can pull over 700ma, so the 500ma for USB 2 ain't gonna cut it.

Other Thoughts: having trouble achieving USB3 speeds despite using different cards/ports. The Sammy drive is much better.

1 out of 5 eggsIssues with Drive Firmware

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: When I first got the drive it worked well and transfers averaged around 70MB/s.

Cons: Issues with disconnecting during transfers
Firmware Update software does not work and you can not download firmware manually.

Other Thoughts: A year or so later and I am having trouble with the Drive not completing transfers. During a transfer there is always at least a couple files that it has problems transferring. Usually a Try Again works for the file, but that is highly irritating to have to do over and over. And then there is should I trust this drive with my backups if it is having this problem now. Noticed there was a firmware Update that says it will correct this problem. Tried there Firmware Update program and I get a Failed to download check your internet connection message...tried my work internet, home internet, and via cell phone tethering with same error message. Searching on the internet and it seems this issue has been going on three years now with their software. No way to download the firmware update manually and now I have a unreliable drive. I should have stuck with Seagate, my 500GB Seagate drives are still going strong after 5 years.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsNot the same as WD Passport

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: Quiet, compact, standard USB3 cable, and fast.

Cons: I thought this was the same as the WD Passport when buying. My bad. The Passport has the ability to encrypt the drive in hardware and put a password on the drive. The Element does not. I didn't realize the difference till I plugged it in. Why do they cost the same and look identical if one is missing some really useful capability?

Other Thoughts: This drive is in the same plastic casing as the WD Passport and looks absolutely identical. I picked it up on sale on NewEgg for the same price as the Passport that I had bought a month earlier. I was disappointed when I found it to be inferior to the Passport.

4 out of 5 eggsTransfer speed problem

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: Lots of memory for the price.

Cons: I have had the hard drive for few weeks now. But I notice there is a speed problem. There transfer speed between laptop and the external hard drive jump between 50MB to 100MB. It can be transferring at 100MB and then the next transfer will drop to 50MB. I can't figure what is causing this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Storage

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: Small, low power usage, 2TB, usb 3.0/good transfer rate.

Cons: Hard Drive has usb/power plug on the same board as the hard drive controller which means you cannot just remove the hard drive and plug it into a regualr sata port. this is not really a con but i thought i would let people know.

Pros: I've been running this drive for over a year, accessing it many times a day, and I have had no problems with it at all. More than that one cannot ask of a drive.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat storage a price

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: Its 2TB and is on 3.0 USB.

Cons: If it dies with your data on it you are S.O.L, there is no way of getting your data off of the drive, uses a proprietary connection.

Other Thoughts: You are better off just buying a internal HDD and a case or waiting to buy one with a USB connection and a power connection separate. When they have a single connection like this it causes issues. I could not pass up the deal that is the only reason I got it. I use to transfer issues for clients that I work on. Not store anything important.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great WD product

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: tiny! quiet efficient operation. This unit is 1/4 the size of my 1 TB unit. My 1 TB unit has performed well for 6 years so I bought this to do a transfer of data just in case.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I plan to add one more of these to consolidate all my back ups. The WD tools and apps provided are great too!

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: WD 2TB WD Elements Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage (WDBU6Y0020BBK-NESN)

Pros: Western Digital...always have had stellar success with WD products and I will still buy them. First failed WD drive in 16 years!!

Cons: This one was DOA. I have RMA'd it and I will order a DIFFERENT 2 TB WD drive to replace it.

Other Thoughts: Showed multiple read errors....could not transfer files from older 1 TB WD drive to this one

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Kickkat1, we apologize for the inconvenience this DOA drive has caused you. All of our drives go through a rigorous testing process before they leave our warehouse. Should you require it, we can replace the drive for you directly. You can create a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) at http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/8
