5 out of 5 eggs New external for home use 04/24/2013

This review is from: WD Elements SE 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive WDBPCK0010BBK-NESN

Pros:

USB 3.0, cheap, fast (pulling 107MB/s between my 320GB 7200RPM drive and this external), barebones.

Cons:

Proprietary connector on the PCB of the drive itself; no standard SATA plug so if the enclosure dies, you can't pull the drive and plug it into something else like you could with older models.

And, since it's a proprietary end, if you need more than the foot they give you, you're out of luck.

Other Thoughts:

I have a USB 2.0 Passport 1TB that I use for work. One of the things that I disliked about it was that every time it got plugged in, it gave me a virtual CD full of stuff I didn't care about. I thought that would happen on this one, but it ended up just being a bare drive, no software, no fluff that I would never use.
