Its enormous storage capacity means that you do not have to worry about running out of space any time soon, and with a brand like Western Digital there’s no need to have a backup of the backup, although, paradoxically, that is ALWAYS advisable, however famous the brand.
The Western Digital Elements 2TB external hard drive is a true plug and play device that does not waste your time with backup software. Once you have connected it to your computer via the USB cable you can start using it. The read and write speeds are very good, even when working directly from the drive, which is something that other external hard drives do not cope with very well. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about the drive spinning away while it’s not in use. This HDD will automatically power down after a few minutes of non-use; saving power and not working the drive unnecessarily.
Of course there are other Western Digital 2TB hard drives but most come with the backup software, which many people (myself included) find annoying. Also the smooth (nearly completely silent) operation of the Western Digital 2TB makes it a pleasure to use without the constant ‘whirring’ in the background.
One less pleasant factor about the Western Digital 2TB External Hard Drive is that it is intended to lie flat (wide) which takes up quite a bit more space. Most external hard drives will happily function on their side, or even upside-down, so chances are this one will work also. The problem is that the manufacturers at Western Digital have provided four non-stick pads on the intended base, which means that if you turn in on its side you may damage the casing. Also, operating it on its side is not how it is intended to work and could void any warranties or guarantees that you have with the product.
Once you have a little bit of extra room to lay it flat on your desk, you will be very happy purchasing the Western Digital Elements 2TB external hard drive. Its simplicity in design and operation will have your data safely backed up and you can do it without the bother of needing to learn the new software.
