This external drive was a gift. I was told it is great for downloading games on Xbox 1, transferring all pics, and movies. It has so much memory, it is the only one he will ever need.

Great External Storage
So far, so good...
Good reviews of a product from an established brand. Performing as expected; seems to be a good value for the price. Time will tell, but not expecting any issues...
WD 2T Elements Hard Disc
This external hard drive performs as expected. Already have a 1T Elements drive and I was somewhat surprised how much thicker the 2T drive is. Also, be warned that the true capacity is 1.81T.
WD Elements 2TB Portable Hard Drive
I bought one for me and one for my wife. I didn't want backup so I didn't use the very expensive software that came with a short trial offer. I just formated the disk so it would become a second harddrive. I like what it does and am very happy with these 2 units.
Surprised how well it works with DISH Hopper 2
We got this hard drive to transfer our recorded programs off a failing Hopper 1. To our delight, we found that we could store both our Hopper 1 contents on this one drive. How can you store the contents of two Hoppers with two terabytes each on one drive you ask? The hoppers use a lot of their hard drive storage for system software. We saved all our program data from both Hoppers on one two-terabyte drive and found either of our new Hopper 2 upgrades can access the external drive connected to one of the Hoppers. If you filled both Hoppers and the external hard drive, it would take a decade watching 8 hours a day to watch all that programming.
Easy to use with Windows 10.
I have Windows 10. The Hard drive was easy to use. Just plug it into the computer and start transferring data. the transfer speed was fast.
All great so far!
Hard drives work perfectly, hope they last for a long term :) shipping and delivery was pretty quick and accurate! Thanks
Plenty of capacity
Worked fine out of the box, plenty of capacity to back up my hard drives, and it is a hack proof backup because it is in my lockbox, not the cloud.
I have used it a few times, and the last time I looked at the write rate. It was between 60 and 70 MB/s (using the USB 3.0 port). I looked at the benchmarks, and this was around the 20th percentile. But, when I was shopping, this was the cheapest external hard drive of this size on the market. I think it was a good deal. The case is smaller than I expected, which is good. The cord is not even one foot long, so beware. When I first got it, it didn't work with my USB 3.0 port. But the problem was not with the drive, but with my port. Once I installed the most recent driver for that port for my motherboard, it worked just fine.
So far a good deal
It is a good backup drive for the money. However you will have to purchase additional software for automatic backup. Without the software, it is just a hard drive and you must do everything manually. The description on the product was misleading.
