Comparison of 3 HDs

This review talks about 3 harddisks: WD My Passport, WD Elements, Seagate Expansion. Passport is 2 years old, Expansion is 1 year old and I bought the Elements yesterday.

For Elements people complained about heating and vibration. I copied 252GB from Expansion to Elements in one go and I found the heating and vibration to be completely under normal limits. Do not forget this is not a SSD that it will not vibrate. However in Elements the vibration is more felt (than Passport or Expansion) be...

Check the cord on a USB 3.0 port

Check the cord on a working USB 3.0 port as soon as you buy it.
I got one with a defective cord that worked fine on USB 2 but did not work on USB 3
Since I did not have a USB 3 port at the time I could not check it.
Trying to get it exchanged now.
Will review the comment as soon as something is done about it.

Good Looking, Compact and Fast.

Ordered the product on 15th July and received on 17th July, so thanks flipkart for their excellent service.

As it is WD Element, so I have compared it with WD My Passport, and found these differences.

1. The dimension of my WD Element is 111 x 82 x 15 mm whereas dimension of WD My Passport is 111 x 82 x 19 mm, So WD Element is quite slicker than WD My Passport.
2. Weight of WD Element is 130 gm whereas weight of WD My Passport is 194 gm, So WD Element is lighter than WD My Passport.

Excellent

I shall simply say that this item is totally worth the price tag. As is the case with most digital storage media, you get slightly less than the whole advertised 1 TB, but still worth it when considering the convenience that comes with its compact size and the price.

About Flipkart -- The service has never let me down till now.

Kaput in 5 months.

5 months. Yes. 5 months it lasted before throwing me pop ups saying "This drive needs to be formatted"

Nonetheless, till it's death it worked pretty well. Never had a problem with it.

It's dead in 10 Months

Title says it all.
I bought it in November 2013.
And it's dead by the 15th of August 2014.

RMA (repalcement request) has been raised.

1/5 star
(I will update this after WD's service is over.)

As it turns out WD service is good here.
WD via Flextronics arranged for pickup this week.
Adding one star for the service.

2/5 star


I received replacement drive in two weeks. I hope it last longer than the predecessor.

That's all.

DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT. BE VERY CAREFUL IN BUYING EXTERNAL HARD DISK

I would like to bring to all the customers attention who are relying on buying external hard disk. These are highly delicate from inside and if not handled with care you will loose all your precious data. I bought this tablet just 4 months back of WD Elements of 1 TB and I am now thinking myself a stupid fool of doing this big mistake of buying this product. I had taken all my backup and was fully thinking that now my data is safe. To my horrible surriprise when today I plugged in the USB wir...
