I ordered this item recently to save my audio and video files to from my laptop to keep them safe. It was ordered from amazon and their service was as always outstanding. The hard dive is a very simple to use USB 'plug and play' system. It loads almost insantateously with the computer and allows quick drag and drop copying. The only down sides to this product are: 1. Actual space 465GB 2. Copying Files to it takes along time 3. The machine becomes very hot to the touch when copying files to it. 4. Does make some noise when copying, but in comparison to other models, this is normal. However, it has been proven over the last couple ... Read the complete review

Western Digital is a leading brand name in the world of PC storage solutions, so I was more than happy to take a chance on this 'basics' 500 Gb hard-drive when I saw it priced at around £50 two years ago. Of course the goalposts constantly shift when it comes to drive capacity and back then 500 Gb was one of the largest capacities you could entertain; if you are new to the hard-drive market today, you are probably looking at upwards of 1 Terra byte of storage for your external drives if you desire. However, 500 Gb is not too shabby; that's ample space for a load of movies, thousands of mp3 files and of course anything else you wish to store on here. In short, unless you .

After having a laptop fail on me numerous times with various different problems I felt it was about time to buy an external hard-drive. I worked out that I needed around 500gb of storage space I spent a lot of time researching into what I could get for a limited budget. After many hours of research I stumbled upon this Western Digital hard-drive on the PC world website; at the time (around two years ago) it was £45 which was £10 cheaper that most other 500gb equivalents. I decided to go for it as it was a good price and it looked pretty robust, it didn't disappoint! This elements model from Western Digital is probably the easiest and most efficient hard-drive ...

I will never ever again use a Western Digital hard drive to store my data on again. I should have learnt my lesson the first time around. Basically I bought one of these to share with my house mate so we had somewhere to back up our files and after searching for a long time we found if for a bargain at Maplin. I trusted the name of Western Digital because I had only ever heard good reviews about them and my parents owned a similar hard drive so I thought they were reliable. I definitely made a rookie mistake in putting all of my photos and work on it and wiping my photos from my actual laptop but I naively thought that nothing could ever go wrong (this is ...

When I got my very first PC, it came with a 6.4GB hard drive, at the time I was at university studying Media Technology & Production. A major part of the course involved video editing. Time in the digital edit suites at university was quite hard to come by as digital mac or pc based editing was just in it's infancy really and as such the University only had a few digital edit suites. To counter this problem I decided to buy myself a video capture card to capture footage recorded on VHS equipment which was plentiful. Once I had the card and was doing some capturing, I noticed that my hard drive was beginning to fill up at quite a fast pace so I decided to ... Read the complete review
