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 It just works, Sept. 29 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 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%.

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.

I've only had this for a few months so I can't comment on its longevity but it works fine

The only issue is that it's USB 2.0 and not USB 3.0 which means that it is not fast for file transfers of a large size.

I transferred about 250GB and it took about 7 hours, so if speed is a problem for you then I would not recommend buying this and instead going for a more expensive model. That said it's fine for what I use it for.
