Western Digital WD Elements 4TB Review

The Western Digital WD Elements 4TB is a great way to expand your computer’s storage capacity, even if your case is already full with other hard disks. There are various advantages such a drive comes with, and all you have to do is to read on in order to learn more about this WD product. Western Digital is one of the biggest players on the market when it comes to hard drives, and their products are always over-par. This external HDD makes no exception, and many customers have praised its features over time.

 

High storage capacity may still be for data hoarders, but things are slowly changing, especially if we take into account the size of freshly released games and movies. If you’re going to install a 60GB game on your hard drive and similar games are already part of the download queue, you can be sure you’re going to need a top solution in order to make things work like a charm. This is where the Western Digital WD Elements 4TB steps in. You don’t have to fit a HDD inside your PC anymore as long as you have a USB 3.0 port available, in order to benefit from maximum transfer speeds.

 

The Western Digital WD Elements 4TB has a very minimalist design and it’s quite small when it comes to its physical dimensions. It measures only 8 by 7 by 5.5 inches and it can easily fit on your desk. Despite these dimensions, the storage space is more than enough. 4 terabytes of free space available won’t fill up anytime soon, so you can rely on such a drive even if you want to perform daily backups of a websites or of various other data. Moreover, if you care about extra protection, you can check out the free trial for WD Smartware Pro Backup application, which gives you access to a private cloud, to and from which you can share files to the hard drive.

 

The Western Digital WD Elements 4TB can attain fast transfer speeds, especially when you have it connected to a USB 3.0 port; even if this is not a solution, you can still make use of the USB 2.0 standard, although you will enjoy lower transfer speeds. A full HD movie that is about 2 hours in length will take under three minutes to be transferred to this drive when the USB 3.0 connection is used.

 

Western Digital is conscious when it comes to energy saving. This is why the Western Digital WD Elements 4TB won’t use energy when it’s not needed. As long as you keep the drive connected to your PC, the HDD will power on and off together with the computer. However, if the hard drive goes idle for a certain amount of time, it will also shut down in order to prevent energy waste. Last but not least, you should know this external drive is plug-and-play, because it has been preformatted for computer usage. You can easily reformat it and use it on a Mac, as well.

  • The Good :
    Large storage capacity, USB 3.0 compatible, energy saving mode
  • The Bad :
    A bit bulky
Our score:
5 / 5
