Western Digital WD Elements 2 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive – Bottom Line:

This is a hassle free drive and is not bundled with any of the extra software which is exactly what I wanted to see. You simply plug it in and it works. It can easily be formatted to work with macs as well. I’ve been using WD hard drives for years and I own several models of the “essential” and “passport” editions. They are very reliable.

The two features that seem to excite most people about the Western Digital WD Elements 2 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive are the facts that it is both very quiet and very fast. People have reported very high transfer rates (Reads at 30MB/s and writes at about 24MB/s).

Another factor going in favor of this drive is that it is relatively inexpensive for the amount of storage you get. With a street price of about $99, this is a great price for 2 Terabytes of data space.

Overall this hard drive seems to be a winner with few cons to discourage people.
