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

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. Recommended Read full review

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

Great product, Compact, secure, Awesome price!
Very compact and fast. I also have a 1TB Seagate Ext HD, and it has to be plugged into an outlet to work. This WD My Passport only requires a USB connection. It also has a security feature that allows me to set it so that it can only be accessed from my PC without the use of a password. I bought this product because I was running out of memory and my other EXT HD is so big and bulky, I move around a lot and compact items are a must! This is exactly what I was looking for in terms of size, capacity and price.

WD My passport 1tb
I bought this product because i needed to organize my files (music, movies, ebooks, pictures,etc.). What i like about this device is its performance, easy to use, palm size so you have huge storage capacity in a small gadget, the software is also well-designed. What i don't like about this product is that it is thicker the ones they have with less capacity.
