    I use this for my backup on my pictures, as I am a photographer enthusiast! It works like a charm and give me exactly what is needed to backup everything! I don't see anything that is wrong with it as Western Digital has been good for all my external hard drive needs!

    The drive is fine, but you have to take the proprietary USB cord with you wherever you go, as it's a non-standard port on the drive...one that I've never seen and I have dozens of devices. Why WD felt compelled to do that, I have no idea.

      Great drive, short and unique USB cable

        Comments about WD 1TB Elements Portable Hard Drive:

        I have always had good luck with WD drives and I hope this also serves me well. I use mine for backing up my photos. The only complaint (minor) that I have is the USB cable is a bit short so I cannot reach from my computer tower sitting on the floor to my desk top. The USB cable cannot be swapped out with other standard USB cables since the end that plugs into the drive has a unique shape.

              I was surprised to not find a power button, like on some external drives.

              The drive performs quite well, and that is the main thing I look for.

                          Drive came in a over sized box with one 4x6 inch sheet of bubble wrap that didn't cover the drive

                          The dive it self however , did make the trip OK with just a dent in the shipping box.

                          The drive is ok ,it dose have bit of a sharp edge as one side is rounded and the other is flat

                            I needed an external hard drive to hold home movie footage. This Hard Drive is smaller in physical size than I expected, which is great for caring it in a laptop bag. I use a mac, and the HD was easy to reformat. I would recommend this brand to a friend.

                                Simple, easy, and reliable. I've always used WD hard drives because they last a good 3 years and have a 3 year warranty, so I needn't worry!!

                                          I use this to store music, photos, and games for my memory strapped laptop. No complaints about it. It's small, and lightweight so I can take it along with my laptop. Great for anyone who needs a bit more storage space.

                                            Seems To Work Good So Far But I Couldn't Believe How Small It Is Compared To The Last External Back-Up I Had. Impressed And Very Simple To Use.
