Western Digital WD Elements Desktop | 1.5TB
2 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 7, 2010

The Western Digital WD Elements Desktop model is a mid-grade external hard drive. It is designed for both in-home, and business use. The WD Elements hard drive is designed with a slim and compact body that is encompassed in a case made out of durable metal. It features an available, 1TB (1,000GB), 750GB, 640GB, 500GB or 320GB storage capacity, with a 16mb drive cache and a speed of 5400rpm. The WD Elements Desktop hard drive comes with support for safe shutdown software which prevents the hard drive from being shut down while files are being transferred, an energy efficient functionality that automatically turns the hard drive on and off with the connected computer, and plug and play storage functionality which means that it is compatible with all PCs and Macs without any lengthy installation. Features Slim, compact body design surrounded in a durable metal case Safe Shutdown software Automatic, install-free, plug-in ... PROS: (1) sleek, minimalist design (2) sturdy, well-built enclosure to protect the drive (3) built-in LED indicator light isnt overwhelming in darkened rooms ... CONS: (1) drive is completely enclosed - lacks ventilation holes (2) designed to sit flat - cant be positioned on its side (3) if replaced under warranty, customers will receive a refurbished drive (4) The A/C adapter is known to have problems and die. You can backorder it if fails for free

Great Hard Drive
5 Star Review   By member lmanlo - Dec 5, 2009   

Strengths: Runs real quiet, No annoying flashing lights (on the front), No needless backup software

Weakness: Nothing

I've had various internal drives from various companies from Maxtor to Fujitsu. The First external Hard Drive was a Seagate 750GB Professional, that was a year ago that I bought that drive. I was hesitant to buy a different company but then saw this hard drive for 99.99 on newegg.com and also had a $5 coupon so I got it for 94.99. It has been the cheapest drive for that amount. It's been a week and been a great hard drive, it's quiet, doesn't have extra software, etc. I expect this Western Digital to be a good drive as my other drive. I have transfered around 20GB of video and went as expected, speed was fast, but I've been using USB 2.0 so can't compare with esata speeds.
