4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product but only 4.54TB not 5TB
By Cyle on 2 February 2020
Works fine, does what I need it to do. The reason why I gave a 4 star and not a 5 star was because the Hard drive is not 5TB it is actually 4.54TB, but still as I said works fine. Recommend this product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, decent quality, one of the more reliable brands! 8/10
By Aaron Jupp on 16 February 2021
8/10 definitely recommend!

As someone who is constantly using portable drives for backup and long-term storage. Western Digital definitely is up there in terms of quality and value for money.

I've stopped using some brands altogether over the years and found while all slowly deteriorate some get way more use and reformatting cycles than others.

WD is a great brand if you are after reliability at a reasonable price. (Some are slightly better at a higher price point but this is a review on these particular drives).

Would recommend for most use cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Multimedia Festplatte mit extrem schneller Datenübertragung
Reviewed in Germany on 4 December 2018
Eine Festplatte muss zuverlässig sein, sie muss die liebsten und wichtigsten Daten immer abrufbereithalten, langlebig und am besten portabel wo auch immer sie gebraucht wird sein.
Deshalb habe ich mich seit mir die ersten Festplatten anderer Hersteller kaputt gegangen sind nur noch für die zuverlässigen WD Festplatten entschieden und das seit mehr wie 8 Jahren.
Das soll schon mal heißen, dass die erste damals von mir gekaufte WD Festplatte noch genau so funktioniert wie am ersten Tag und mittlerweile besitze ich 10 Stück davon.
Die WD Festplatten überzeugen mich besonders in der Schreib und Lesegeschwindigkeit über den USB 3.0 Anschluss.
Ohne zusätzlichen Netzbetrieb, überall schnell einsetzbar wo ein USB Anschluss zu Verfügung ist.
Egal für welche Zwecke, ob für Datensicherung oder Multimedia über unser WD TV, war auf diese Festplatten immer verlass.
Da wir aber überwiegend, die etwas größere 2 TB nutzen, könnt ihr auch gleich den Unterschied zwischen 1 TB und 2 TB in der Größe auf den Fotos sehen, diese unterscheiden sich aber nur in der Höhe um grade mal 6 mm.
Ansonsten sind sie gleich! 11,3 x 8,3 x 1 cm, vom Gewicht kaum zu spüren.
Besonderheiten für die Inbetriebnahme gibt es hier für Windows Nutzer nicht. Ist die Platte angeschlossen und aktiv, wird es über eine weiße Diode angezeigt.
WD Elements ist für den Betrieb in einem PC vorkonfiguriert und NTFS Vorformatiert für Windows 10, Windows 8 und Windows 7. Also plag & play. Oder wenn man möchte, oder für bestimmte Hardware Vorrausetzung, mit dem Dateisystem ExFAT oder FAT32 formatieren.
Bei Mac Nutzern sieht es allerdings schon wieder ganz anders aus, hier muss die Festplatte entweder mit ExFAT oder HSF+J (für die Benutzung mit Time Machine) formatiert werden. Hierfür kann entweder die Disk Utility app des Mac genutzt oder die WD Drive Utitlities Software herunterladen werden.

--- die Vorteile dieser WD Elements Portable Festplatte - 1 TB ---

• kompaktes Format
• hohe Kapazität (wählbar bis zu 4 TB)
• externer Zusatzspeicher für Videos, Musik, Fotos und Dateien
• ultraschnelle Datenübertragung mit USB 3.0
• USB 3.0/kompatibel mit USB 2.0

Die WD Elements externe Festplatte ist eine der zuverlässigsten und schnellsten die ich bisher gehabt habe. Damit sind unsere Daten immer sicher seit Jahren aufgehoben und uns ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Bewertung wert.
