5 out of 5 eggsWD 2TB

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

Pros: Great drive. Bought as an external for my Xbox one. Works perfectly in that respect. It is very compact. I bought a 1TB WD a year before and that one is 4 times the size.

Cons: USB is short maybe like 12"

5 out of 5 eggsWD 2TB Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive

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

Pros: This is a nice light weight portable HD, fast and reliable for the price I just couldn't overlook it. I have always had great success with WD and this portable is living up to the WD reputation.

Cons: None really, the backup software is a trial version, I just deleted it and had another 130MB free space

5 out of 5 eggsGood, Quick Backup

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

Pros: Small, light, affordable, reliable, fast

Cons: Funny shape (this is a very minor con)

Other Thoughts: I bought this and a similar 2TB Seagate drive. They are the same size, and they seem to perform the same. This one has a sturdier case, but the Seagate is flat and a little more compact. This one is "cushion shaped."

1 out of 5 eggsWindows 7 frequently refuses to eject

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

Pros: Cost per gigabyte; portability

Cons: Windows 7 *frequently* refuses to eject this drive. This is both annoying and scary because I am always concerned about losing my data when I unplug the thing. I am going to save my data elsewhere and throw this thing away. (However, I want to add that I have other *smaller* Western Digital USB drives...500GB or less...and they have worked *fantastically well*.)

Other Thoughts: In spite of this negative experience, I still very much like Western Digital HDDs and I will continue to purchase more of them. My computer's internal 3-1/2" HDDs and my smaller (<= 500GB) USB drives work fantastically well. It is only this 2TB USB drive that is giving me problems.

5 out of 5 eggsWD Elements in comparison to myPassort and Seagate Backup plus portable

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

Pros: I use one of each WD mypassport, mypassport ultra [metal], and Seagate bpp, all under Linux with Luks/LVM (even for root) and so far didn't notice any problems.

Cons: the internal HD has usb/sata-controller is on the same PCB as the drive. thus can't be connected to a sata port for data recovery if USB/sata-converter fails. this is not WD Elements specific. it also applies to WD myPassport series which use the same internal harddisk as Elements, i.e., WD10JMVW.

To recover data via sata-port one would have to solder pins on internal sata-port on HD's PCB. (there might be other, professional recovery methods.)

Other Thoughts: compared to WD Elements and myPassport, the almost 50% lighter and slimmer Seagate backup plus portable USB3.0 employs a 9.5mm tall, 2.5-in 2TB Samsung Spinpoint M9T (SATA) drive with separate usb/sata-converter, providing for better data recovery. however judging from the about 10% of reviews on the web who report Seagate drive failures within few months of operation, the WD might still be a better choice – eventhough not long ago Seagate bought WD - as well as Samsung's HD business.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

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

Pros: I bought this to store files that I need to use on more than one computer. It is small, has only a single data/power connector, fast (USB 3.0) and holds everything I need it to. I move between three different computers on a regular basis and this has been a great storage tool to do just that.

Cons: There is a noticeable hesitation before accessing the drive when I am using a software program - but this does not occur when I just use Windows file explorer. It is probably connected to the fact the drive will go to sleep after a bit if not in use. It's annoying, but not enough to outweigh the advantages of having a small package for 2Tb of data.

Other Thoughts: I use the Windows partition tool to assign the drive a specific drive letter - and then I make sure to plug it into the same USB port each time. This means I can set up shortcuts and links from software that will always work as they should. It makes switching between computers very easy. I also back up the data to another drive every day since I worry about the longevity of a drive that is so often on the move.
