Too small for WD Elements 500GB Portable Drive
on 30 April 2010
I spent a lot of time reading reviews and measuring my drive before ordering this; the external dimensions quoted seemed ample for my WD Elements 500GB Portable Hard Drive - in theory it should have fitted.
The model number for my drive begins with WDBAAR so I assumed it would be ok.
Unfortunately, although it's a nice little case, the hard protective frame is quite thick and the Elements drive has to be wedged really hard into the space and the zip pulled down hard - like zipping up an overfilled suitcase. Even then, it won't completely zip up.
Certainly there's no space left for the USB cable in the little pouch provided.
I'm disappointed. Not the case's fault... but WD Elements 500GB Portable drives don't fit inside this.
