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

3 out of 5 eggs Buy 2 and mirror information if you plan to use as back-up plan. 06/26/2014

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

Pros: This device is a no brainer. It comes equipped to function on Windows OS and can easily be reformatted into exFAT from the start to be used on Windows OS and Mac OS, which is what I did. Data transfer is fast.

Cons: I bought 2 of these drives because I have had pretty consistent bad luck with every USB external drive I've purchased from WD, Seagate, and the like in that at least 1 will fail pretty early in its anticipated lifespan. Such was the case with one of my drives. I purposely copied 800GB of data to 2 of these drives, fully expecting one of them to not last very long, and sure enough 1 of my drives died after 26days.

Other Thoughts: My recommendations
1. If you want a primary source to back up to, buy 2 of these drives and mirror the data on the 2 drives.
2. If you want to just use this drive to transfer large packets of information from one source to another, just get 1 drive, but don't expect it last you very long. This drive does not seem to be able to handle high frequency use for moving information from one source to another.
