WD Desktop External HDD Reviews
Nice and Compact
WD does not put any instructions with the Elements Hard Drive. There is an on / off button which must not do anything. It took me a number of google searches to make discoverable by Windows. A troubleshooting guide would be nice and whether the USB needs a powered USB or not.
3rd one and all still working great
This is my 3rd WD 12TB Elements Desktop I use for my Million Plus photo collection I have taken and worked for the past 50+ years.
Didn't work straight out of the box
Absolute garbage. I'll be returning this expensive paper weight. I should have known to stick with Seagate.
love this for back-up of raw photos
a good buy for back-up of raw photos
Good unit but watch out for subscription trap
WD makes good units. This drive is fast and robust. I would wish that they didn't set a subscription trap to their web storage service. On first loading the unit needs to be reformatted without using their supplied program or you end up with a connection to solicitations you may not want.
Original product, good quality. Fast delivery. Thank you
Fast write/read speeds for a spindle drive. Using it for my nightly backup of my server.
This thing hold a huge enough for a small package.
