Zero Frills Excellent Value.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WD Elements 1TB External Desktop Hard Drive USB 2.0 - Black (Personal Computers)
I purchased this drive Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive - Blackto replace a dead Seagate drive.
I use the drive in conjunction with Norton Ghost to back up my desktop & Laptop.
Install was plug & Play Windows  found and activated the drive within 30s and quotes 931Gb of usable space.
There are No bells, whistles, go fast stripes etc with the drive but in exchange for not an awful lot of £ you get a Drive that is as good as silent, runs cool even on lengthy write sessions, with a good read write speed. It's also compact and appears to be equally happy sitting on its base or its side on my desk.
