Very simple HHD.

Summary: This is my second sweet little WD elements 500GB Portable HHD. It is for an extra HHD for my Humax Freeview so I can keep my favorite tv programmes for life to help free up the Humax's Hard drive as it is nearly full. This HHD is a very easy to use, it is a plug and play as simple as that!
Good little hard drive - shame about the little lifespan though!

Summary: I've been using this hard drive since 2012 with my MacBook Pro and didn't have a single problem to report...until now. It was super easy - just plug it in and time machine does the rest. Fairly quiet although does have a flashing light which can be annoying at night - a very minor complaint.
Summary: I have two of these. When I received the first one I was quite disappointed that it didn’t have a power supply. It was only after using it that I realised the advantages of no power supply. I can just pop it into the USB port and away I go. I like it so much I bought a second one.
Summary: It died after a year and out of Warranty. WD only offer a one year warranty on their Elements HDs, Seagate offer a three year warranty and get a higher ratio of 4/5 star reviews vs 1/2 star so I now use their hard drives instead of WD. Simples!
Summary: When we initially received this WD, we were pleased with the size, style and price. Unfortunately it has died, refusing to read/write or format, nine months after purchase. Now comes the question of whether I can get a replacement that could die again, or go with another manufacturer.
Summary: I had to backup all my files when my hdd failed on me so while waiting for a hdd replacement I bought this one to back everything up. I am a photographer and those of you out there that work with big files know how things go when you transfer things like that from a location to another.
Summary: I ordered this drive to use for backup. I wanted to make sure that I had an off site backup of all my important files and being an amateur photographer I have quite a hefty collection of files to back up. This seems to be a great little drive for my purposes.
Summary: I attend my local Sixth Form and along with Mathematics and Further Mathematics, I take ICT. Even though I do not require a very large USB drive, I kept on losing and finding my original 64GB USB pen drive (downside of being a male), which was obviously hindering my work efforts.
Summary: This is a plug in and use item which is exactly what I was after. I literally unpacked it, plugged in and started using it. I've only had it 10 days and so can't comment on reliability but if there are problems I will add to this review.
