This review is from: WD 1TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - 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.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Is this a bare-bones machine? Does it have RAM and hard drive? OS?

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 portREAD FULL REVIEW
