- USB 3.0
Fast drive, but failed quickly. 06/25/2013
This review is from: WD Elements SE 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive WDBPCK0010BBK-NESN
Small form factor
Only one cable to worry about
Plenty of space for media and backup files
Non standard USB cable, unable to substitute other cables for the WD one
Failed within 3 months of purchase
I've always been a fan of WD, but am frustrated that the drive has failed this quickly. Additionally, Newegg return policy only gives me 30 days from purchase to RMA a device. Time to slog through WD support.
We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the WD Elements SE Portable, as this is not the typical experience with the product.
