Good External Hard drive

  • Summary: Like every thing about the external hard drive, the only downfall is the unit need to be pluged into a electrical outlet to work.

This drive has an extra power supply...

mesadude, J&R
26 May 2010
  • Summary: I was under the impression that this was a USB-only drive. They were on sale, so I ordered two. Upon receiving them, I realized that they both have the extra power supply (wall wart). These were intended to be used as extra, portable drives. However, with the addition of the power supplies, they're not as portable as the USB-only versions.
  • Pros: Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet

Freezes my Mac every now and then

Bimal, Amazon

  • Summary: Great little hard drive. Reliable. Lots of space. BUT every now and then, it seems like it's doing a full access to the drive, it seems to freeze everything I am doing on my Mac. Actually very very very frustrating. Not sure if anyone else has found this problem.

Not USB 3.0

Bigrab, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: I already own Western Digital 2TB and have had no issues over 2 years, so expect this one to do the same. Disappointed that is not USB 3.0 as advertised in title (-only2.0), but have just kept it as it suits my purposes for now.

Western Digital Elements 1TB 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive

Karna, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Quick, quiet, cool operating, simple setup no on/off switch, no activitity indicator, power-plug change now takes up more area. the transformer 'block' was in-line, now moved to plug and takes up a lot more space on your ups.

Western Digital Elements 1TB 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive

Avon, pricebat.ca
26 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I got two of these from the local retailer with the Bull-Eye logo. Cost was very good. They are USB, so it's plug-n-play. The electrical plug is the adapter, no brick. One particular died immediately after a few hours of use. It powered up and then powered down. I guessed it was a low voltage issue. I exchanged for one more one, arg. WD-Seagate-Hitachi, they all have good quality control difficulties. These have a 1 year restricted warranty.

Good value for money. Annoying power lead

Erpablillo, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: Excellent value for money hard drive. The one downside (and it's a significant one) is that it comes with european format power lead, with a rather flimsy adaptor which let's down the whole thing slightly.
