I really didn’t expect all the hassles involved with SES, VCD, SmartWare, etc. I only chose the My Passport lineup because it has a 3 year warranty.
Would anyone have authoritative answers to the following that they would share?
1. Do the Elements portables have the same hard drive inside as the My Passport models?
2. Do the Elements portables have standard USB 3.0/2.0 enclosures so that if a failure occurs after the warranty has expired I’ll be able to remove the drive and install the drive into another standard USB enclosure?
3. If the Elements product line has the same drive inside, why does it get only a 1 year warranty while the My Passport product line gets a 3 year warranty?
Thank you all.
