4.0 out of 5 stars Great Drive with clean case
This is a good hard drive. Silent, great looking case and at good price. But i think it's too slow at writing. I use it with my 'Network Media Tank' for storing movie files. I transfert files around 6 Go regulary and it's a longer task than it should be. But other than, that i am very pleased with everything else! The best choice for a reliable external hard drive in my...

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly fits my needs, Oct. 9 2013

This review is from: Western Digital WD Elements 2 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive WDBAAU0020HBK-NESN (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
This external hard drive came formatted and works great with my HP laptop running Windows Vista. All I had to do was plug it in and drag and drop my files. It is quiet and doesn't heat up all at all. I read other reviews complaining about the slow transfer rate, but I use it for storing movies and photos, so the USB 2.0 is sufficient for my needs. I would definitely buy this product again.

This is a no-frills hard drive which is what I was looking for to backup files. I did not want anything with built-in backup software. I actually now have two of these - one running on a mac and one on a PC. I have had no issues whatsoever with either. They run very quietly. Well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars It just works, Sept. 29 2013

This is a 2 TB external USB 2.0 drive. It is designed to sit on a horizontal plane as opposed to my other drive which is a Seagate and sits on a vertical plane. The Seagate takes less space and can be easily knocked over. The WD takes more space but is very stable. I have put bookends on either side of the Seagate.

The WD works hard and long and has never given me any issues.

This is a good product. Highly recommend it. Works like a charm as long as you don't fill it 100%.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed after three months, Sept. 25 2013

I'm not impressed with the 2Tb external hard drive. It sat on a shelf, humming happily along and performing as it should... until it just didn't. Won't mount at all, just makes a weird beeping electronic noise.

Fortunately it's still under warranty and WD didn't take too long shipping a replacement. I doubt I'll buy another WD product though. Very disappointed.

It arrived quickly and was a good price.I plugged it in to my satellite receiver and have been using it to record movies and shows ever since without any problems. Much cheaper than buying a PVR receiver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Using it as an internal, Aug. 31 2013
This review is from: Western Digital WD Elements 2 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive WDBAAU0020HBK-NESN (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
So you can pop these things open to use as internal 3.5 inch drives. Tutorial below. (voids warranty)
[...]

The actual drive inside is a WD20EARX.
Basically just a 2TB Green Western Digital drive.

Also if you use this as an internal drive I recommend turning off the head parking. Tutorial below.
