    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.

      Comments about WD 1TB Elements Portable Hard Drive:

      I had had other devices with USB 3.0 connection, but this one performs better than the others. I just plugged it in and VOILA! just as promised. Just like it should. I am backing up many wedding files, and so far I am delighted with this drive.

          Comments about WD 1TB Elements Portable Hard Drive:

          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!!

                                        Small size, fast access speed. Also works great with my old MacBook. Makes no noise at all, just had to format it and it was plug and play from then on.

                                        I am very happy with the purchase of this product, it is fast and effective. The only downside is the usb port. It is a different type of usb connector port. Other wise great external hard drive
