Jiten, South Africa. 17 January 2014
Awesome drive with loads of space and the lightning speed of USB 3.0
Arno, South Africa. 11 February 2014
Awesome space, easy usage, good harddrive overall.
Adrian, South Africa. 21 March 2014
This device is rugged, well made and compact. You don't need an external power source, since it draws power directly from USB.
USB 3 makes read and write speeds very high. Transferred more than 1Tb of information in about 4 hours.
Performs just as you would expect and external drive to. Makes a great movie or backup hard drive.
Great value for money!
Jason, South Africa. 2 May 2014
Great product. High speed transfer rate.
Sabine, South Africa. 30 April 2014
Price great. Product super.

This drive is great. fast transfer and simple plug and play. came formated as NTFS but now formatted to exFAT and works great.
Nadim, South Africa. 9 May 2014
Much cheaper, and no compromise on quality. Delivery was next day.
Kavidhan, South Africa. 9 September 2014

Renier, South Africa. 3 June 2014
Nice, small & compact with space to spare...
Kamohelo, South Africa. 21 June 2014
The product is very good, I have no complaints with it.
Would have liked a suggested protective case though.
Hendrika, South Africa. 26 June 2014
Colin, South Africa. 27 June 2014
Great product. Only downside is it's twice the thickness of the 2.5" drives.
quintus, South Africa. 7 July 2014
I am impressed with the speed it copy !
Brandon, South Africa. 8 July 2014
Nice small harddrive and Transfer speed is very fast
Andre, South Africa. 21 July 2014
Great prodcut. Light and small and works very fast and well. All this at a very good price as well.
Pedro, South Africa. 30 July 2014
Good built and quality.
One problem is that it needs a lot of power and might not work on all TVs since the power supplied by the USB port on the TV might not be enough.
Steve, South Africa. 8 August 2014
Excellent service, excellent product and good value for money
Herman, South Africa. 8 August 2014
Johann, South Africa. 9 August 2014
Great product. Lots of space on the go.
Enzio, South Africa. 11 August 2014
This drive is surprisingly small. I read that the USB to SATA is integrated into the PCB of the drive. This is for space saving and possibly to stop users removing the internal drive from the casing.
Otherwise it is very fast over USB3.0 I have seen 100MB/s sequential write. I have a small pouch which the USB3 micro USB cable also fits in so I am very happy with the drive and Takealot's excellent delivery service. I would highly recommend this drive as well since it has a two year warranty.
PS. This is the WD Elements, so this drive doesn't have any software included, just the drive with a cable. The only software is WD Pro 30 day trial or something - which I deleted.
Hitesh, South Africa. 30 October 2014
Was a good buy. Only thing it should of come with bag.
Tracey, South Africa. 11 November 2014

RAJU, South Africa. 3 December 2014
Great product.Works very well
Jacques, South Africa. 4 December 2014
I've had this HDD for 4 months now. The hard drive looks good, is compact, has fast data transfer rates via. USB3 and being a WD HDD I'm sure it will last a long time.
Herman, South Africa. 5 December 2014
Riaan, South Africa. 9 December 2014

Ian, South Africa. 5 June 2015
Not happy. It worked for 5 months (almost) before it died.
Matrida, South Africa. 20 October 2015
LÃ©an, South Africa. 26 October 2015
I have had this HDD for almost 2 years and it hasn't given me a single problem. Only con is that the connection between the cable and the HDD itself seems a bit flimsy, but it has not given me a problem.
Shaun, South Africa. 28 October 2015
Awesome value for a huge amount of storage in tiny size.
muk, South Africa. 1 November 2015
best backup investment
Sipho Mamale, South Africa. 18 November 2015
This isihardrive says what is supposed to do on the iboxi
Brandon, South Africa. 7 January 2016
According to forums and test sites WD drives fail more than their competitors, and once they break there is even less chance of repairing them than those from other vendors. WD have incorporated propriety hardware on these drives so that when the drive fails there is no way you can take it out of its enclosure and place it in another enclosure. The USB 3 connector is physically attached to the circuit board of the drive instead of being a separate plug-in board. Once it breaks, which is often, you can throw it away.
Tushar, South Africa. 10 January 2016
Not as sexy looking as the WD my passport but it works just as well. I love it. I have a WD my passport too but it disconnects if you touch the usb wire while in use. This WD elements works continuously without hassle. Its well worth the price (R1350 on special I think).
Louise, South Africa. 19 February 2016
Tracey, South Africa. 4 March 2016
Lize, South Africa. 4 March 2016

Irma, South Africa. 8 April 2016
The drive is nice and fast.
I am happy with it.
Clyde, South Africa. 11 April 2016
No problems. Just bought a nice hard case for it as it fits into a nintendo ds cover for R150 and I am happy with it.
Anthea, South Africa. 20 April 2016
Can anybody confirm what WD means by 'Limited warranty'? mine no longer working. now the swapped it out and not replaced with a new one.
Sumaiyah, South Africa. 24 May 2016
Good product. Fast transfer. Happy with my purchase
Divan, South Africa. 25 May 2016

Alexander, South Africa. 25 May 2016
Product as advertised (I have a number of these, they work well, especially with USB 3), delivery even earlier than indicated at ordering time.
Steve, South Africa. 26 May 2016
Really great so far.
MARGARET, South Africa. 27 May 2016
This product is very good value for money. I have successfully backed up a large amount of data and assume that the backup will continue to work well in the future. Simple, easy to use.
Divan, South Africa. 10 June 2016
Price is great, works great, flexible on the move...
Philip, South Africa. 13 July 2016
Software for backup not recommended by other persons. Therefore used another program. Also not free with drive as with other vendors.

Rudi, South Africa. 5 August 2016
Exactly what I needed.
Kirsten, South Africa. 26 August 2016
Only had this for a few days now but very happy with it. It connects and plays through my TV perfectly. I've ordered and returned others through different suppliers and they didn't work as they drew too much power from the Samsung TVs.
Worth it and Good Price
george, South Africa. 31 August 2016
A great price and good value for money. However, this hard drive does not talk to Samsung TV. I re-formatted this drive to FAT32 and still it doesnt work. So this new drive has been demoted to an 'Archive' rather.
If you need your drives to talk to Samsung then try Seagate
Asanda, South Africa. 5 September 2016
It does what it should as well as any other WD product. Great brand and great product.
Pieter, South Africa. 21 September 2016
Brilliant value for money.

WD is the best manufacturer of Hard drives
Weena, South Africa. 10 October 2016
So far So good!
I haven't used it enough to really brag about it but the cost vs size was a bargain in itself.
The HDD was delivered on time and in excellent condition!
Upload speed from the laptop is faster than my previous USB so that's awesome :)
Wesley, South Africa. 12 October 2016
Nice hard drive, doesn't pick up when plugged into my TV though
Rob, South Africa. 19 October 2016
Have a red 2TB Passport Ultra & a white 3TB Passport Ultra, both with pouches. Fast copying, looks good, use it for copying movies & series respectively. Highly recommended, very quick & silent operation.
Stuart, South Africa. 10 February 2015
Value for money, good reliable drive.

Great drive - small, reliable, solid case.
christo, South Africa. 15 January 2015
Pretty reliable, travel a lot with it. very fast...even without usb 3.0
Atish, South Africa. 2 May 2014
This was awful. A few weeks after I ordered one, it became unreadable. I sent it back for repairs. I got given another one. After a few weeks, the replacement became unreadable.
David, South Africa. 22 April 2015
An excellent drive, the second I have had. The first I gave to my wife. Good value for money. Would have had 5 stars except for the fact that it does not come with a case, which I knew anyway.
Natasja, South Africa. 30 September 2014
It works great, the only negative for me was that my TV and Playstation didn't pick it up and I had to format it to FAT32 before being able to use it on the Playstation. But, it is compact and fast and I am very happy with my purchase.
Stephen, South Africa. 19 May 2014
Reliable, small and convenient.
Paulo, South Africa. 2 June 2014
Surprisingly nice little device. It's smaller than most other 1TB 2.5" hard drives, has four sturdy rubber feet on the bottom, and is USB 3 compliant. Total capacity is 931GB. Very responsive and quiet.
jack, South Africa. 13 April 2016
I am happy with this hard drive, compact, and with a decent connection cable
Sadhna, South Africa. 27 January 2015

Best price around and it's tiny and stylish! Copies at over 100MB/s using USB 3.0. It's PERFECT!
Western Digital > Seagate
Pairinban, South Africa. 10 September 2014
Excellent, fast USB drive. Love that it is so compact in size and needs just one USB connection! Brilliant.
Morne, South Africa. 12 February 2014
Great little HDD. Got 2 of them. Given no problems at all.
I don't use the backup feature, so can't comment on that. But for the price and what you get, its a great product!!!
Wayne, South Africa. 5 January 2015
Have been using my drive for the past month now and haven't had any issue so far. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Sumayyah, South Africa. 9 April 2014
Excellent product at an excellent price. Really pleased!!
Tyson, South Africa. 9 April 2014
If you are looking for an excellent, large capacity external storage unit for your digital data, this one is definitely for you. For the money, you can't find a better deal, especially from a brand name like Western Digital. Small, compact, well designed and extremely portable, and on top of all that it features USB 3.0 which allows for quick copying, even copying multiple files at a high speed. a definite winner in my books.
George, South Africa. 19 June 2014
stylish, elegant, plenty storage space, usb3 simply best value for money.
Eckard, South Africa. 16 April 2014
I bought this for speed and its compact size.
I would recommend this device to anyone.
Liall, South Africa. 10 April 2014
Awesome little drive. It's smaller and lighter than my phone and works well. Always buy Western Digital drives as I've found them the most reliable compared to all the others I've tried.
Stewart, South Africa. 10 May 2014
Great quality, USB 3.0 is super fast, and lots of space
Damian, South Africa. 20 February 2014

Very awesome product!
Jarrod, South Africa. 26 September 2015
I've only had this hdd for 10 months now. It has been giving loads of issues in the last 2 months, not always picking up. Scared it might not work at all and I'll lose all my data. Need to get this returned for a new one asap.
Dylan, South Africa. 16 June 2014
avarshan, South Africa. 5 January 2015
I have given this to my sister. She has not used it yet. She seems happy with it : )
Mogammad, South Africa. 9 April 2014
It was cheaper when I bought it. For that price I'd say it was a bargain. Nice little hard drive, not too slow either. Think I saw it peak at about 70MBps. The enclosure looks a bit on the budget side, but it looks as if can take a beating. A good buy all in all.
Stephen, South Africa. 9 November 2014
This item arrived faster than greased lightening. Just plug them in and click and drag. Never have a problem with these.
Katinka, South Africa. 9 April 2014
Very good product. Second one I purchased and very happy.
Andile, South Africa. 9 April 2014
Great product, i thought i was worried about the new usb 3.0 port, with with this hardrive...i must say they have made it smart!
Happy that i bought it,
Maureen, South Africa. 10 May 2014
Great, small and portable, speed is also fast.
David, South Africa. 13 September 2016
I find these reviews interesting. I think these reviews are all written by WD employees. Straight out of the box, I had to hold the cable in just the right spot to get the HD to work. I copied all of my data onto the drive (note: straight out of the box, first data transfer). Transfer the HD over to a new laptop. The data wasn't visible on the second laptop. Checked it again by plugging it into the first laptop. The HD threw a corrupted error. Lost all may data.
Gerald, South Africa. 15 April 2014
Has my two favourites. Good price and Excellent quality. Also very good access time.
Marinda, South Africa. 12 May 2014
Chris, South Africa. 20 January 2014

Very good and compact hard drive.
Kevin, South Africa. 10 June 2014

Cobus, South Africa. 15 April 2014
No issues. Nice and small. Quick delivery. Reasonable price. I am happy
Heleen, South Africa. 31 December 2015
So small yet so impressive! A quality external that's fast and does exactly what it needs to.
Pankaj, South Africa. 23 December 2015
This drive failed. Please note that this drive has the USB 3.0 interface soldered into the drive itself (no SATA), so you cannot recover information using another chassis in the event of failure.
Spend a little more on a rugged Storejet instead.
aghmed, South Africa. 21 October 2014
Excellent hardrive, small in size and very fast
Darren, South Africa. 17 January 2016
Looks good, great little drive to have on hand.
WB is one of the best brands when it comes to Hard Drives.

They are good drives. I enjoy the USB 3.0 which makes copying a breeze and the drive is nice and small which makes portability easy!
carma, South Africa. 27 April 2016
Small and effecient
Ruwayne, South Africa. 17 June 2014
Was surprised when I opened the box, it's extremely small and thin compared to other 2.5" portables. It has rubber feet which is a bonus, it feels sturdy, plus the price is great for a 1T.
Mornay, South Africa. 24 June 2014
Great little drive(so far), fast, small and easy to use. It even works on my TV & DVD player without issues.

Justin, South Africa. 10 November 2016
Using it exclusively on my Xbox One for additional space and it works great, I actually think the games run slightly faster off the external.
Eric, South Africa. 10 August 2016
I am happy with the product but I am more happy with the service received from Takealot. That is why I give it 5 stars thank you.
Matthew, South Africa. 6 February 2015

Diane, South Africa. 4 January 2016

Wesley , South Africa. 9 July 2015
Very impressed. My hardrive was delivered on the day they promised.
Roxainne, South Africa. 1 August 2016

What a grate little number this Portable Hard Drive is. It is just the right size & very fast just like my car.
Max, South Africa. 1 August 2016
Awesome item. Fast 3.0 USB, high quality case and quiet during the running. Also only a small light, which isn't disturbing.
Natasha, South Africa. 4 August 2016
I was so excited to get my drive, but unfortunately it did not work properly. Out of 5 devices I tried using it on, it only worked on 2 of them. On the others I either got error messages saying there was something wrong with the drive or on some, it just did not register at all that it was plugged in. I tried reformatting using FAT (as per one of the reviews)- but still no joy.
Alicia, South Africa. 20 September 2016
This is a great HDD. Very good quality, works perfectly. I'm 100% satisfied.
George, South Africa. 26 October 2015
Bought x2 of these, both have died on me and have been sent back to be replaced.
Not very impressed with the 'Elements' series.
All the WD 'Passports' I have have work brilliantly and have never had any problems like these.

great product! easy to use with a sleek look
annaline, South Africa. 7 April 2015
The cover of the base is thin plastic,if it would fall it surely would brake in pieces.I bought a sleeve to protect it from scratches and maybe it will protect it a bit.It is small and compact otherwise and transfer fast.
Werner, South Africa. 9 April 2015
Very compact and small in size but big in GB size. Works like a charm

Kabir, South Africa. 6 July 2015
I used this for about a year and just all of a sudden - POOF,stopped working. Warrantee would probably replace it but i needed my data - this is very hard to recover. Recommend not using this for important data. Back it up

Works very well on a Satelio satellite receiver connected to the USB 2.0 port as external PVR hard disk (reformatting to FAT32 required). Connected to the PC via USB 3.0 it delivers the expected transfer speeds. Great small and silent portable drive! Hope it will last for a while.
Simone, South Africa. 12 April 2016
Decent HDD for the price you pay. I've had mine for almost2 yrs now and have not had any issues with it. Please do remember that it is fragile and you need to take good care of it
