The Elements SE Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive from WD offers maximum data transfer rates and universal connectivity with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices. The compact and lightweight enclosure features a 500GB capacity for storing videos, music, photos and documents while on the go. The hard drive is also bus-powered so you do not need an additional AC power adapter.
Maximum Transfer Rates
When connected to a USB 3.0 port, the Elements SE Portable delivers maximum performance for data transfers. Transfer a full-length HD movie in a fraction of the time it takes with USB 2.0. USB 3.0 can transfer files at a rate as high as 5Gb/s while the USB 2.0 tops out at 480Mb/s
Improve PC Performance
Computers slow down when their internal hard drives become full. Instead of delete files in order to free up space, transfer them over to the Elements SE Portable at high speeds for improved performance
Pre-Formatted for Windows
The Elements SE Portable comes pre-formatted in NTFS format and is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It can also be reformatted to work with a Mac
