Specifications and Product Overview
To get started its important to know what we are dealing with here. As already mentioned the Western Digital Elements 1TB external hard drive connects to your computer or laptop via a USB 2.0 connection. But there are a number of other things to know as well, such as the different capacities the drive is available in:

From the back you can see the power input for which there is a pre supplied AC adapter cable and the mini-USB 2.0 connector for which there is also a supplied USB cable for. There is also a hard drive activity light which you find on most PC cases, although we are rather puzzled as to why Western Digital thought it would be a good idea to place the activity light at the rear where it will not be visible.
As far as the front is concerned there is nothing much to see, an all black glossy finish with a WD logo on top, and that’s about it.
