Excellent Product!!! 7/1/2020 11:00:33 AM

Pros: Storage, small to carry, fast, easy as 1,2,3. You will always have ton of space in your pc or laptop, oh, and your phones, no more pictures slowing your smatphones!!!

Cons: Sadly it doesn't work directly with mobile, but not sure if there are some external disks with that feature either, hah!

Overall Review: I was scared in the beginning, thought my laptop wouldn't work with this giant new external disk, but it worked perfectly, and best thing is that after the first try the external disk will work better as if all was set to be faster, maybe after it recognizes the PC or laptop!

Goes to sleep then.. issues 6/27/2020 10:35:46 PM

Pros: Its 6TB!!

Cons: Goes to sleep then froze the PC when trying to access media on it.

Program installed on this drive also really slow to respond.

Overall Review: This is my first external spinning drive. A mistake I will never make again. External SSD - Yes. External Spinning drive - NEVER..

Freeze, Slow access time, never got over 200MB a sec transfer.

I hope Im the only one having this type of issue.

I will try to do the sleep time hacks and update firmware.

First impressions are less than favorable. I'm not exactly captain Tech. I have personally worked on over 50,000 computers. Hardware and software like most will never see. Anyways I'm not exactly a newbie either.

A sleep or spin up after sleep latency so bad that 20 - 30 seconds after trying to access the drive it goes into Microsoft's "the program is not responding, would you like to wait or close" should not exist in 2020.

I expected reliable storage, and got a problem

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Seth B.,

We regret to learn that your WD Elements Desktop Hard drive is not performing as expected. Slow performance can be caused due to several factors like computer configuration, multiple applications running on the computer while trying to access or backup the data, fragmented disk which may also result in slow computer disk read capability, the total amount of data on a disk and the relative size of each file, encrypted backup or scanning of each file by anti-virus installed in the computer or USB port of the computer with which the drive is connected.

As a troubleshooting step, please ensure that the Hard Drive is connected directly on the USB 3.0 port of the computer and the files which you are attempting to copy are not in use by any other program of the computer.

Furthermore, you can also refer to the link suggested below and check for the Theoretical USB Interface Speeds to find out the theoretical speed given by different USB port types.

"Theoretical USB Interface Speeds":
https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5043

Moreover, the cause behind the hard drive going into sleep would be the USB Root Hub may not provide enough power to fully spin up the external hard drive after waking from sleep or standby mode. As a solution, The USB Root Hub power controls can be disabled to provide more power to attached USB devices. Please refer the below link for more information.

"External Hard Drive Files Disappear After PC Wakes from Sleep/Standby mode until it is Rebooted"-
https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/21348

We would like to followup with you to help discover the root cause of your hard drive's slow performance to provide a positive resolution for this concern. Please reach us via the phone concerning the Newegg review. We will be happy to assist you.

Perfect and Easy 6/27/2020 5:10:31 PM

Pros: Easy to put together, came really quickly. Had zero issues with everything. No installation is needed for Windows 10 at least. Literally, plug in, done.

Cons: No cons that I know of. Seriously doubt there is any.

Overall Review: Great choice to store anything you can imagine on it. I got this to store all my Steam games on there since I have over hundreds of games. Super easy setup to do this and had no problems with it either. I even put the Steam application on the drive too.

Home entertainment system 6/26/2020 8:54:56 AM

Pros: It seems to be working fine on both Mac and Linux. Backing up my iTunes movies and home movies with plenty of room to spare. If the interface ever fails, the drive is rated to be able to be removed and placed into a PC as an internal drive.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: I've only had it for less than a month, but it does not vibrate like my 8TB MyBook hard drive did.
I bought a micro USB B to USB C cable to connect to my Mac Mini Thunderbolt port and Linux USB-C port--works great. When I looked over the warranty, I found that it was for two years which is the same as for an internal WD blue drive of a similar size--the WD blue are rated as pretty good for a home user by one of our IT people so that was a great influence in my purchase
