    500GB Elements Portable Hard Drive is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great external drive at a modest price. Using this little drive as my backup for my notebook. Very reasonably priced, compact design travels well, no issues with performance or downlaod speeds. This is my second purchase of these drives and I've never had a proble with either. Using them for work and personal data without hesitation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent HD I use this external hard drive for storing my photography. I pull files from it and save files to it quite frequently, it is fast and is ready to use when you plug it in. The USB 3.0 connection is fast! So far so good, I would highly recommend any of the WD Portable hard drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Space-Saver For many years I have backed-up my photo portfolio with the large external hard drives and have filled up two fireproof safes with these drives. Now I am using the 500gb, 1tb and 2tb elements with great ease and reliability ... and huge space savings.
