WD Elements SE 1TB portable ext. hard drive,
This review is from: WD Elements SE 1 TB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive (Personal Computers)
I bought this at newegg and received it today (I mostly buy Amazon stuff but newegg had a much better deal this time). It's just what I wanted, small footprint (3"x 4.38" x 0.75"), very quiet, looks neat. I was going to buy the Seagate portable 1TB ext. hard drive (expansion) weeks back for a pretty good deal at Costco but decided to wait for something that's less in size. I saw two days ago at newegg for a deal on this new item and couldn't wait so took the plunge, wishing WD would have released an improved device after all the user feedbacks on the WD 1TB passport portable version. Looks like WD did. This one is still using micro USB connector, a minor disappointed at first upon opening package but none now with the very steady connection once plugged in. There is no extra software at all on the drive, pre-formatted in NTFS. Nothing more nothing less. Typical USB 2.0 speed. Very satisfied now and will update later when I use it more.
