Summary: This drive worked well for me for about a year (it died two months after warranty expired). One day while using drive I received an error from my Mac Book Pro that stated that it could not read the hard drive.
Pros: I liked it. It was of a nice size (physically and virtually), I liked the way it silently hummed (so I could feel but not hear it), the indicator light was bright and hard to miss. It held my data and the USB cord was a trucker... I'm not sure what else there is to say about the pros.
Cons: It died. Or at least, it is either at death's door or recently gone through it. I bought it 5 days under a year ago and it recently (within the past month) started clicking. At one time, it was clicking and working, then clicking and not working, then working and not clicking, and now it's stowed...
Summary: I have 3 WD Passport Series portable external hard drives - and I much prefer this WD Elements hard drive. First, for a great price, you get the full 1 TB of space - no WD backup software that I don't want to use as on the Passport series.
