Excellent service, excellent product and good value for money

Lize, South Africa. 4 March 2016

Great little drive. Very fast and feels sturdy.

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

Hendrika, South Africa. 26 June 2014

great product

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.

Arno, South Africa. 11 February 2014

Awesome space, easy usage, good harddrive overall.

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.

Mignon, South Africa. 13 November 2014

Great buy, fast drive and works on my TV which I'm very happy about!

David, South Africa. 30 April 2014

This drive is great. fast transfer and simple plug and play. came formated as NTFS but now formatted to exFAT and works great.

Divan, South Africa. 25 May 2016

Was a good deal. Thank you takealot !!

Riaan, South Africa. 9 December 2014

I'm very impressed with my purchase and with the data transfer speed on USB 3.0. Now just to upgrade my pc to USB 3.0...

Kaydee, South Africa. 9 March 2015

I like it!

Johan, South Africa. 21 January 2015


Shaun, South Africa. 28 October 2015

Awesome value for a huge amount of storage in tiny size.

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!

Renier, South Africa. 3 June 2014

Nice, small & compact with space to spare...

Mohammed, South Africa. 14 November 2014

Good price and efficient delivery.

Hitesh, South Africa. 30 October 2014

Was a good buy. Only thing it should of come with bag.

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.

ganessen elroy, South Africa. 2 August 2016

good way to store things on the move. i love this product

Jacques, South Africa. 18 November 2014

Would have liked a suggested protective case though.

Kavidhan, South Africa. 9 September 2014

Drive work perfectly but failed after two months.....lesson learnt : always have another HDD as a backup

Colin, South Africa. 27 June 2014

Great product. Only downside is it's twice the thickness of the 2.5" drives.

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.

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.

RAJU, South Africa. 3 December 2014

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.

Ings, South Africa. 9 January 2015


Elsabe, South Africa. 20 July 2016

Satisfied with product and efficient service from Takealot.com

Sumaiyah, South Africa. 24 May 2016

Good product. Fast transfer. Happy with my purchase

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.

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.

Ian, South Africa. 5 June 2015

Not happy. It worked for 5 months (almost) before it died.

Matrida, South Africa. 20 October 2015

Great service

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

Marie-Berdine, South Africa. 29 September 2016

Its small, compact and super quiet for a 2TB portable drive. The design is sturdy, beautiful and really well done. I'm really impressed.

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.

jessica, South Africa. 6 July 2016

best buy

Estelle, South Africa. 5 May 2015

Bought this in January 2015 - failed in April 2015!! Didn't last very long. Paid a lot of money for only four months of use.

Tiyani Ishmael, South Africa. 4 August 2016

Awesome, im happy with the product so far :-)

Rudi, South Africa. 5 August 2016

Exactly what I needed.

Léan, 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.

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).

Asanda, South Africa. 5 September 2016

It does what it should as well as any other WD product. Great brand and great product.

Warren, South Africa. 22 March 2016

Really a great product for storing my wedding photography photos. Easy to use and user friendly with it being so portable and also great service from Takealot for delivering it the same day i ordered it. BRILLIANT!!!

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.

Divan, South Africa. 10 June 2016

Price is great, works great, flexible on the move...

Steve, South Africa. 26 May 2016

Really great so far.

Paul, South Africa. 4 August 2016

Absolutely great value for money.

Mpho , South Africa. 2 August 2016

Speed delivery service

Rory, South Africa. 21 May 2015

Great product, great size, great smiles. Can't complain so far!

Devan, South Africa. 7 October 2016

WD is the best manufacturer of Hard drives

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.

Morne, South Africa. 30 August 2015

Great! Hope it lasts..

Wesley, South Africa. 12 October 2016

Nice hard drive, doesn't pick up when plugged into my TV though

Wikus, South Africa. 5 September 2015

Unexpected great quality from WD.

Nick, South Africa. 11 May 2015

Does what it says on the box without any issues.

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 :)

Anash, South Africa. 16 October 2015

Great size, easy to use, plug and play. Works as it should.

Mohammed Faizal, South Africa. 23 April 2014

Nice and small drive that works well and very fast.

Dave, South Africa. 24 June 2014

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

It actually worked on OSX without any additional fiddling. Sleek. Fast. Excellent value for money. Reputable brand.

Andre, South Africa. 20 June 2014


Dave, South Africa. 19 February 2014

Small, sleek and fast. Great quality build.

Bought 2 of these so far and very happy with their performance.

Craig, South Africa. 18 July 2014

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.

Dee, South Africa. 8 August 2014

Great product

Gavin, South Africa. 9 January 2014

Excellent.. Product and service

Piet, South Africa. 11 June 2014

Awesome and stylish external drive at a great price.

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

Great device

Linda, South Africa. 18 August 2014

This is a good quality product.

Rai, South Africa. 4 August 2015

Good product

Faeez, South Africa. 12 October 2015

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

Super impressed.

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,

Annalize, South Africa. 16 February 2017

Despite being small and compact I can not give credit for much more.. It's impossible to format the drive to make it compatible with a normal HD tv so you can only use it as extra storage for your computer and not directly with the tv which is a BIG downside

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

Great Product!

Chris, South Africa. 20 January 2014

Mervyn, South Africa. 24 June 2014

Exactly what I was looking for - compact and simple.

Claude, South Africa. 3 September 2014

Small, portable case. Quick response.fantastic.

frank, South Africa. 15 December 2015

Fantastic! Still works perfectly after more than a year.

bhavin, South Africa. 17 June 2014

It's a good product.

Andrew, South Africa. 13 January 2016

Happy at first, lovely size and plug-n-play, but after about a GB of data moving, it stopped working and hasn't worked since.

Stephane, South Africa. 29 April 2014

Very good and compact hard drive.

Kevin, South Africa. 10 June 2014

Great, Reliable hard drive

Ian, South Africa. 9 July 2014

I have been impressed with the service receiving this portable HD. The product was easy to set up and use. It is really small and portable.

Reuben Govender, South Africa. 16 December 2015

This product is a great buy at the price. Works like described. Silent drive as well. Its an awesome product. Very good quality. Order yourself the WD carry case from Takealot and I promise you will not be disappointed. Thanks for the good service again Takealot Team.

horrible had 2 both packed up

Danie, South Africa. 25 May 2014

I have two of these drives and they have performed faultlessly. One drive I keep in the boot of my car under the spare wheel, and it contains a full backup of my computer's drive.

Bennie, South Africa. 10 April 2014

yvery good product. Trustworthy and good price

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.
Very Happy.

Darryl, South Africa. 23 May 2014

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.

Neil, South Africa. 7 November 2014

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

Never had a problem with a WD Elements Terrabyte. I have had my other one for years and it is still going strong.

isabel, South Africa. 15 April 2016

Very good product. Would recommend it to anyone that is looking for external hard drive. The price is good aswell

Justin, South Africa. 3 August 2016

Great service and good prices.

Lawrence, South Africa. 5 May 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.

Aaeda, South Africa. 22 June 2016

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

Belinda, South Africa. 2 June 2016

Happy with it. It is basic, very easy to use. Fast copy. Good price. It is worth to buy it. Will buy it again.

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

Denis, South Africa. 25 May 2016

wish I had bought another one when it was R700!!

Siddhartha John, South Africa. 26 April 2017

Mario, South Africa. 26 May 2016

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
