Description

The WD Elements USB 3.0 portable hard drive offers price-conscious users looking for reliable, high-capacity, high data transfer rates, versatile connectivity and high capacity storage.

General information

External hard drives

Depending on the application, we recommend that you pay attention to the following characteristics when purchasing an external hard disk:
If you are primarily looking for a portable hard disk or want to exchange data between different devices in an uncomplicated way, a 2.5'' hard disk with power supply via an integrated USB interface is a good choice. These smaller hard disks usually have a storage capacity of up to 5000GB.
When selecting the connection, the speed differences are shown. Most manufacturers today rely on the fast USB 3.0 standard. Newer hard disks already have the universal USB Type-C connection. Individual models also have the option of exchanging data via WiFi.
For home users who want to back up their documents and multimedia data such as holiday photos, we recommend external hard disks with a size of 3.5'' and a storage capacity between 500 and 5000GB. For Mac users, it is recommended to consider products with the fast Thunderbolt 3 connector.
Backup systems with a storage capacity of 5000GB or more and a RAID function are suitable for companies or for backing up large amounts of data. Rack systems can also be considered for larger storage capacities. These offer storage capacities of up to 64 TB and can be installed in a space-saving manner.

Funktioniert prima.

An einem iMac (late 2012) erreichte ich im Test 96 MB/s beim Schreiben und 98 MB/s beim Lesen.

Die 2 TB Platte von Toshiba war im Test noch etwas schneller, und ist aktuell sogar leicht günstiger. Und ein wenig kleiner und leichter auch.

Pro:
- 2tb - maximal möglich momentan
- Strom über USB
- Preis (habe nur 100.- bezahlt, 140.- finde ich zu hoch)

Contra:
- erstaunlich hohes Gewicht (habe gedacht, alle WD 2.5" seien gleich dick, gross und schwer. dem ist nicht so.)
- erstaunlich dick
- Verarbeitung schlecht: nur ein wenig Plastik ums Gehäuse, Anschluss leicht krumm verbaut

Alles in allem: für 100.- top, für 140.- Flop
wer 2tb für günstig braucht wird damit zufrieden sein.
