Western Digital Elements Portable 1TB Review

The Western Digital Elements portable 1TB has the modern maximum data transfer speed and has universal connectivity with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices. The design is good and the overall build is light weight (200g) and durable.

 

The device can be used to store documents, movies, music, videos and any other data, including photos, e-books and software. It is powered by the bus port it is connected to. This means it does not require an external electrical charge like an AC power adapter in order to function. It can transfer information at very fast rates. A full length HD movie can be completely transferred in less than 3-4 minutes. In some of the other external hard drive models, this time span increases to ten or more minutes for one such movie.

 

The Western Digital Elements Portable 1TB transfers files at about 5 Gigabyte per second while the USB 2.0 touches a maximum of 480Mb/s. Speed however depends on the user's system configuration and hardware available. This external HD product is pre-formatted in NTFS format. It is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and also the latest 8 OS (Operating System). It can also be reformatted in order to function on an Apple Mac OS. Computers tend to get slower when their internal hard drives are close to reaching their maximum storage potential. The Western Digital Elements Portable 1TB makes it easy to store data so the PC has less data occupancy, and can function at its optimum level. It comes with a very essential USB cable, a 1-year warranty and also a useful installation or setup guide which is easy to understand.

 

In addition to this, the Western Digital Elements Portable 1TB is shock tolerant and can take small distance drops onto a hard surface without the internal chips getting damaged and this is all due to the WD certification (or WD quality). Inside this external storage device is WD SmartWare Pro backup software. It helps back up files and data to the drive or to the cloud feature using a DropBox account. This is a free trial program. The product is very portable and can be carried to and from locations to transfer data and files to or from different sources. Overheated spaces are not good for the Western Digital Elements Portable 1TB, especially if the device is being operated. 5° C to 35° C is the operating temperature and a cooler surrounding will be ideal for the product's long term durability. An important accessory for this device is Case Logic QHDC-101 Portable EVA Hard Drive Case. It makes it easier to carry the device between locations and keep it safe from dust accumulation.

 

There is, however, a very dark side of this product. Its USB port design is – according to customer reviews – absolutely atrocious. Considering this is the only way to access the data stored within the hard drive, we can see how this is potentially disastrous. It is not uncommon to have issues that escalate into complete failure of this connectivity within 6 months. And when that happens, there’s absolutely no way to recover your data unless you backed it up previously somewhere else. WD customer support service is also described as very unhelpful in such cases. Bottom-line: this is a fast, simple and compact unit, but suffers tremendously with its unreliability.

  • The Good :
    Lightweight; Easy to use; Fast data transfer
  • The Bad :
    Very unreliable due to faulty USB port design; Poor customer support service
Our score:
3 / 5
