Not 5 TB 9/19/2020 2:49:46 PM

Cons: This is not a 5 TB hard drive. It is a 4.5 TB hard drive. It does NOT take 500 GB to format a drive. Yes, it is missing 500 gigabytes. That's 10% of its claimed total storage capacity that is literally not there.

Overall Review: If this actually had the full 5 TB I paid for, it would have gotten a decent rating. I'm not a fan of being lied to, or being ripped off. But when I am sold a 5 TB external, I expect it to have 5 TB on it, with the loss of a few MB for formatting, not half a TB worth of data storage missing.

Hi Anonymous,

We are sorry to hear about your storage concern with WD Elements Portable External Hard Drive and appreciate your time providing this review.

Please know that while dealing with Windows and Mac based systems, you will commonly see both decimal measurements and binary measurements of a drive's capacity. In either case, a drive's capacity is measured by using the total number of bytes available on the drive. As long as the drive displays the correct number of bytes (approximate), you are getting the drive's full capacity. Please follow the below link to know more:

“Drive displays a smaller capacity than the indicated size on the drive label”:

Great Storage Small Package 9/16/2020 7:04:34 PM

Pros: Twice the size of a wallet, fast, data and power go through a single USB cable provided with the drive. Good price, good performance and with a TB of storage.

Cons: Frankly, no cons. Confident in reliability from a known supplier.

Overall Review: I would recommend this to friends and may buy another one for myself. Yeah, I know it sounds hokey, but hey, my first PC had a massive 20MB hard drive. So this is pretty cool.

Warning: WD 5TB Elements has NO encryption 9/16/2020 1:21:06 PM

Pros: If you want to give away all your data, this is a nice portable way to do it.

Cons: 5TB is a fantastic amount of data, but this package is very portable so unless you have a fantastic amount of useless data that you don't mind someone stealing, then this is the perfect drive for you. If not then the advertisement for this should include a warning that it is not encrypted.

Overall Review: No, I would not recommend anyone carry around so much data that is so open
