Product details

The WD Element is amongst the company’s newest USB 3.0 portable storage device, providing users with seamless and simple local and cloud backups (e.g. DropBox) using WD Backup. As was the case with all WD products, we found the bundled software to be very user-friendly all the while having an advanced feature-set. For example, users can customize automatic backups to occur whenever they require, from an hourly schedule for frequent backups, to a less frequent system with monthly backups. The HDD  also protects this content with the WD Security utility and 256-bit AES hardware encryption, the latter which offers users the option to enable password protection on files and folders. It comes in models as high as storage, which is a 50% increase in maximum capacity from its predecessor.

As far as performance goes, the 7th generation HDD offered some pretty good numbers, with 109.1MB/s read and 108.8MB/s write for large-block sequential activity and 73.9MB/s read and 73.3MB/s write for random. Although these numbers compete well enough with the best drives of its class and type, we only saw a slight improvement compared to the previous generation in sequential performance, while even having marginally weaker performance in random writes.

Like its predecessor, It is released in a market full of capable portable storage devices, which is often overwhelming for casual consumers and workers on the go looking for an external storage solution. As a result, they often buy the first one they see at a reasonable price. Consumers should note that WD is unique due to its bundled backup software, which has been developed in house as well as being specifically designed for WD devices such as this one. Couple this with its good performance, the seventh generation of the HDD makes for a compelling release among a saturated market.
