A pretty good little drive
If you can find it for a good price, this drive is a good deal for storage. It's not all that fast but if you need your stuff on the go, you can't go wrong.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned

Wrong drive shown for review. I was sent a different model!
Needed a small backup device & this works great right out of the box. All you need to do is plug in the high speed usb 3.0 cable and you're ready to start storing files. Drag & drop right over to the new drive as soon as you plug it up! But if you're going to use this to perform scheduled backups of your system, I really don't know if that is easily accomplished or not. But for pure storage purposes, I really like this drive! ***I should point out that the drive pictured is not the drive I was delivered. They sent me the other Passport with the black plastic cover that has the little dots all over it. This looks very similar, & the spec are pretty much the same. I like western Digital Products. I have always used Seagate backup products in the past, they have probably the best customer service I've ever experienced. But I've never had to contact WD. I went with WD this time because I saw more positive reviews for it than Seagate. And at 79 bucks for 1tb. That was a deal I didn't want to pass up. I should note to those of you out there that need even more space than 1tb, that I just purchased a 3tb Seagate external drive on AmaZn for $119.00 Brand New! It's a/c powered which is the only part I don't like. But 3tb for $119. Awesome deal, & great reviews!!!Read full review

Small Size With Big Ideas.
Nice Western Digital My Passport External Hard Drive. Great size 1 TB to backup my 3 different computers. Use the software and it is easy to use. Also the backup is fast. I like the unit for its small size with big storage space for my backups.

Really nice,robust design.High read speed,comparatively better than others
This HDD comes with USB3.0 interface.Blazing fast,but when it comes to connect with USB 2.0 write speed isn't very high.
Though the drive is toughened and robust,still users needn't to worry, as WD provides 5 year limited warranty on this purchase along with 24X7 online support.It works great, renders you a blazing fast read speed(though the R/W speed is 5400RPM) because of the 64MB of cache memory.
It's recommended for users who do heavy work for storing big and really big files... you can work all the nite long because this drive doesn't heat up too much. In comparison I would rank WD number 1 leading the world of HDDs,because of the after sales services they offer.
The only one flaw I see, though its a small issue,yet good to be mentioned,this drive doesnt come in attractive colours and designs like other drives manufactured by TOSHIBA,SONY,etc.

Overall, a great buy for the price.
I bought this specifically for my MacBook's Time Machine, automatic backup. I like the USB 3.0 cord, but have yet to utilize it. Western Digital has always been my brand to go to for hard drives. This external hard drive is very quiet, more than any other I have used. As for the 1TB, sure, why not... you couldn't beat the price! Overall the quality is very good, its quiet and more space than average people need, a great buy for the price.
