WD Elements 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
  • USB 3.0/2.0
  • 2.5"

4 out of 5 eggs Back-up up 03/15/2013

This review is from: WD Elements 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive


Affordable, small footprint, stylish, and easy to use. Very ergonomic black case and good construction for pricepoint.


WD Software is crippled and doesn't allow full range of back-up options, fairly short USB cable of about 12 inches (18" needed), and invasive msconfig entries without first asking for permission to add to Windows start-up.

Other Thoughts:

Good entry level backup that images your hard drive at a fair price. Would be five stars if cons were fixed.
