WD Elements 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive

5 out of 5 eggs Works awesome 02/04/2013

This review is from: WD Elements 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Fast, Small, Portable. It works with my blueray disc players USB port and you can watch movies off of the drive with ease using the Blueray player.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I got this drive for free when buying my HP Envy laptop. It had a small hard drive so they threw this in for storage. Works great.

Pros: This laptop was purchased for night time use in a car. The only machine I have found with a Backlit keyboard, High Res 14" monitor (which means 1600x900) resolution. This is much better than the smaller resolution monitors especially on a 14" laptop. You can actually have 2 windows side by side and work. Also the sound on this laptop is MUCH BETTER than my dell Vostro 17" custom machine that was built about 2 years ago. Solid state drive is really quick.

Flash reader for SD Card so if you need quick memory space it's a great option.

I only didn't give it 5 stars because I only bought it the weekend of Black Friday. I got it for $799 with a 500GB external HD and 1 year extra warranty and shipping all to my house for $799. AWESOME DEAL!!

Cons: Only 2 USB ports. 1 is USB 2 and 1 is USB3. I now use a bluetooth mouse so that fixed my 1 USB port being tied up. Other con is that it's only a 128 GB drive. But more than enough room for what i'm using it for.

The battery lasts around 3-5 hrs with maximum things open. (pretty good though if you ask me.) I think it said 9 hours on the website, this is not the case.

Other Thoughts: I am a very advanced user of computers and a lot of people told me stay away from the HP's but to be honest, it's the only one that had my major concerns filled:
1. Backlit keyboard for night time car use
2. Small laptop with high resolutions (1600 x 900)
3. long battery life
4. solid state drive
