Customer Reviews of Western Digital Elements 2.5TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive
a great bargain4/19/2012
This WD external hard drive is small enough to fit easily on desk top without crowding other items out... not as easy to carry around (buy the portable ones for that, even at a little higher price). Easy to use, quiet, works well from first time it is plugged in. A great value and easy enough for novices to use. Don't wait til your hard drive crashes before you decide to back up your files.
Good amount of storage for reasonable price.
good for casual back-up and storage9/15/2011
great price, easily reformatted to MAC.
Great Desktop Harddrive - Would recommend it9/13/2011
Got this drive last week for $85, even at 2.5 TB capacity, the quick format took less than 10 seconds, hooked it up to my windows 7 machine, got instantly recognized, the hardware was detected and setup in less than a minute. At the risk of comparing apples to oranges, It is way faster than my WD passport 1TB. At the least it is a very nice backup drive to have if you have huge chunks of data.
If you have windows 7 look else where9/2/2011
I purchased this hard drive last week and have not been able to access the whole drive and windows 7 will only recognize about 1TB
