Summary: When I opened the package this hard drive came in, I fell in love. It was much smaller and sleeker than I'd expected. It's practically pocket-sized! Unfortunately, my computer was having trouble detecting it when I plugged it in. And it took *forever* to transfer files. I thought I'd have to return it, but I decided to try one last-ditch effort first: I reformatted it from ntfs to ext3. It worked like a charm. My warranty is probably voided, but it now works as expected.
Excerpt: I bought this portable hard drive for general extra storage space. It was a great price and functional. Note that if you are a Mac user, you will need to re-format the drive before using it. It is a very easy process using your Disk Utility application.
Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Good price, High Capacity, Portable
Excerpt: I use this to back up files from my laptop every week or so, and it's perfect. It is easy to use, small enough to tuck into a pocket and carry anywhere, has enough space to keep saving files forever (it seems), and feels integral to my computer experience at this point. Very happy I got this!
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Summary: This is my second WD 1TB elements USB drive. My first one was the USB 2.0 model I purchased a few years ago. It's still alive and well, but after building a PC with USB 3.0 ports, it was time to upgrade. Unlike some other portable drives I've had, this one is powered with just one USB cable, no DC adapters or need to tie up a second USB port. The drive is quiet and responsive.
