I/O not resonding
18 August 2012
Summary: After 5 months of using the WD 2TB, the unit stopped working and an ERROR message – I/O not responding. I could not access all my data and with limited warranty provided I basically lost all my records.
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
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 Desktop WDBAAU0020HBK 2 TB: Western not so super hard drive!
13 December 2011
Summary: I had yet another external hard drive purchase recently and what bad timing it was with supplies low due to the terrible disasters in the main manufacturing countries. The prices for these things has shot up and I found a lot of my regular brands were sold out or far too much over my budget. I always read reviews on Amazon and here before purchasing electrical equipment and settled on this Western Digital Elements Desktop 2 TB external hard drive.
Pros: Cheapish option, nice looking, lots of storage
