Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs 3 new drives each fail SMART test UPDATE 04/04/2014

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN

Pros: well packaged, nice design, no sharp corners, good price

Cons: not compatible with all USB3 controllers

Other Thoughts: This an update to my previous post.. It turns out the drives are basically good, but not compatible with the USB3 controller on my Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3 motherboard. They pass the WD-DLG Diagnostics on the USB2 ports. Would have bought a different product if I knew they would not work up to speed on my machine.

Pros: Is this a bare-bones machine? Does it have RAM and hard drive? OS?

Cons: Is this a bare-bones machine? Does it have RAM and hard drive? OS?

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: beautiful screen, nice keyboard "touch" and layout, very fast all-around, hot-swap eSATA connector is great for external drives

Cons: I can't get any Linux boot disk to run on this machine. No Clonezilla, no Ubuntu, Fedora 13, Mint 8. Most freeze at kernel_thread_helper. I run several machines dual-boot with Windows and Linux, and hoped to get it to work on this one. Most online "solutions" involve being able to boot the machine and tweak it later. duh - it won't boot! Tried CD and flash drive installers. ...still working on it

Other Thoughts: Very glossy black case shows finger oil smudges easily - no snacking while computing! Could use another USB port or two. It has two, plus a shared USB/eSATA port
