Garbage

Bought this and the drive always has to be unlocked, even after setting it to not lock again. Also seems to lose files for no reason. Oh, and did I mention that there is now error messages saying there are problems with the drive that need to be fixed.

Good until it died

Really enjoyed this back up until one day it wouldn't show up in finder. Apparently it is corrupt. I can pay to have the data recovered, but luckily my computer is still fine. So I just need to buy a replacement. Apparently this is very common with WD passports. You just have to keep replacing them after 2 - 3 years. Think I might try another brand......

It's good.

I'm buying a second one a year later because the first lasted this long (long enough for me to completely fill it with video footage, anyway). It's small and light and works quickly, even allowing me to run software off of it in a pinch.

Dont buy this

This I-dont-know-what-is-it-but-its-not-a-harddrive stop working after 3 month. Western Digital after-sale service is crap and they refuse to refund you.

Works good but not impressed with service center

The girl who took the call was friendly but hard to understand...probably situated in India. She really wanted to help but she went in the wrong direction. Instead of telling me to download info from an email she sent me, all she would have had to do is tell me that once I had installed the EHD was to look on my screen for 3 new icons. Because once I hung up with her I closed all my windows and I saw those icons and was able to proceed successfully.

Does the job for me

I purchased this product in order to increase the capacity of my digital tv box converter. Overkill but works fine as intended. I'm satisfied.

Pleased, but

The drive arrived promptly and it was as described but it has a very short usb cable, about 16 " long. It would be a nice touch if it was a little longer , say about 36"

WHAT CAN ONE SAY?

Very compact. Works fine. No complaints. What more can be said about an external drive?
