Using an SSD is the greatest feeling and it helps in working on stuff and getting things done faster. We were able to backup and restore files at our finger clicks and this has been an added advantage. We were able to use the Western Digital Elements storage devices for all the users in our company and in turn secure documents of great value.
  • Fast Backups
  • Good pricing
  • Easy to use
  • Great and sleek designs
  • Work on the storage to cloud links
  • Work on the ability to reduce duplications
  • Find easier ways to backup files that already exists
1) We can use this storage option as it is well suited for any major backup or transfer of files. It can be very handy in migrations. 2) The best option in WD elements are the storage devices as they are priced at such reasonable prices that the common man never suffers

SSD is helpful to get better performance and with Western Digital, it has better performance in IOPS comparing other vendors. Moreover, it gives more features from the driver's point of view as it helps to create backup partitions properly and works for both Windows/MAC environments parallelly.
  • Helps to work in both Windows/MAC environment
  • Have tool that helps to use the hard disk as backup recovery points
  • Drivers for WD gives better control than other vendors
  • Not much of heating issues
  • Not much
  • Pricing can be reduced ;)
For use in both Windows and Mac OS, it was well suited by default. Other hardware doesn't really allow multi os file system access.

We have several Western Digital SSD drives used internally in our ERP and database servers. The SSD proved to be very fast, reliable, and with excellent durability. The performance has improved a lot compared to other HDDs we have used.
  • Improved response time of complex, high-load systems.
  • Optimized write speed
  • Reliable and market leading brand SSD and high durability and less chance of failure.
  • It's more expensive than an HDD, but it's worth it by a lot.
  • There is less chance of data recovery.
Western Digital SSD has provided more security, performance, scalability, speed of backup, restoration, and synchronization of data from our systems. It has efficient technical support and a very good customer service time with hardware replacement. I would recommend them to all people, from smaller to larger companies to be replace other HDD or SSD on the market.

We have replaced all the traditional disks to SSD disks. The main problem that we had was the traditional disks after some years presents some problems and with this problem the servers and computers of the users were affected causing down times in the operation, impacting directly to the business core of the company.
  • Fast I/O
  • Secure
  • No support needed
  • Long live
  • Disks of user's computers
  • Servers
  • External Storage
We started saving the information of the user's computers on external storage SSD (portable), we found the solution with the computers changing the original disks to SSD, then we checked that the new disks never fail and bought a simple n traditional NAS of Western Digital with SSD disks, we achieved no problems with the data, and then we made the decision of invest on change the disks of the servers.

Western Digital SSD is used as a fast and easy-to-use storage medium for large amounts of data that is rarely accessed. Minimal configuration is required. Stability is high and transportability is painless. Read and write access is fairly quick. Data corruption issues are rare but are also easily fixed with minimal downtime.
  • Fast access to data (read and write).
  • Easy to connect without much extra software (overhead).
  • Speed could be improved.
  • Online corruption checking and correction during read/write could be improved.
Anytime large amounts of data are needed for very quick access and standup, (no need to configure any new infrastructure like servers) a western digital SSD fits the bill. If guaranteed uptime with zero corruption is required, Western Digital SSD might not be the best fit. While corruption is very rare, it does happen and will take a little bit of time to correct.
No support issues what-so-ever with Western Digital SSD. This product is so easy to use and configure that there have been no issues that required support other than individual research (online). This product is very stable also, even if dropped, functionality has never been compromised. In 2-3 years of usage, not one major issue at all has been experienced.
