Great drive at a great price.
I have 2 of these drives now and use them for a daily backup of my critical files. I also do a total standalone back of 2 machines once a month. when not in use the drives are disconnected so if something bad were to get into my machines it won't find the drive containing my backups.
These drives are fast and reliable and provide me with piece of mind knowing that I have standalone images that can be restored if needed. These drives are like an insurance policy, You hope you never need them but are glad you have them if ever needed.

If need hard drive files are not huge and want portability, this is for you
I bought this because my computer I've had for four or five years (I know get a new computer) now has a blue line down the middle of my monitor so I figured I better make sure I back up my files in case it quits. I trust Western Digital so I looked for a small hard drive that was portable. This was a great value for what I was getting. It works great. It is really easy to use. All the software you need is on the hard drive and there are instructions. I still have not backed up my files on the windows side of my computer because it seems to stop in the middle of the back up but I am sure that is user error. Works fine when I do it on the apple side. I love this hard drive and if I ever need another one, I will definitely buy Western Digital.

Trusted brand, lots of storage, compact, good price. Happy!
I am giving a conditional 4 stars because I have not had it that long yet. Since this is a Western Digital, I can have some trust that it will be durable and error-free. Compact, attractive shape, nice color. Propriety cable, so be very careful not to misplace it. I have a little zip case that I keep drive and cable in. Sure is nice having all my digital information brought together in one place. I got good value for my money.
I should add that I have not made use of the backup software supplied - that is another issue and I have not decided how I want to approach that (I should probably do something soon, this laptop seems to be showing the occasional sign of middle-age). I use this drive strictly for 'dumb' backup; I select files and copy to the backup drive. When I take the supplied backup software for a test drive, I will append this review.Read full review

Great price for such a great product! A Must Have!
An excellent product for those who require a lot of space for files while still having the compact, portable size. My Passport Essential SE by Western Digital is my new favorite tool alongside my sidekick, my camera. My Passport goes everywhere with me just in case I need to do a quick download/import of photos from a 'shoot or just to save important documents for later. Quick, efficient, and super portable - the product everyone would love!

This is a great item and great storage size with an affordable price
This is a great item; great storage size and latest technology with a great price (means affordable).
It has 1 TB storage size and 3.0 USB port technology. The 3.0 USB port is the fastest transfer data rate we have so far.
What I like about this product is light weighted.
What I do not like about this product is nothing. I did not see any minus thing about this product.
