Finally An External That Rates!

Summary: The purchase of this drive came about because my six month old Seagate Momentus ST9750420AS 750Gb internal storage disk crashed with about 450Gb's of movies on the disk ... Grrr! Now I have to go back and regain all that I have lost to a bad drive! That being said, I decided to try (and I'm glad I did) this current external drive, the WD My Passport 750GB Portable USB 3.0. While I RMA the failed, way before it's mean time (MTBF) Seagate.
Pros: Finally, an external drive that seems to do all it was intended to do!
Cons: At the moment none! Should this change I will update this review.
Summary: I have been using this drive daily for over a month now and am quite satisfied with its reliability.
Pros: This drive is really fast. It is limited by the speed of the physical drive itself rather than the USB 3.0 bus speed. It also includes the necessary USB3 cable to connect to your computer or laptop.
Cons: The white LED can be bothersome (very bright) if not covered at night. IT is small enough (2mm) to easily be covered. Otherwise, it’s aesthetically pleasing to see.
Summary: The only thing that differentiates this drive from others is the included software. Western Digital has always been known to provide good software with retail packages and this is no different. If you can get this at the capacity per price ratio you are looking for, then I'd say it's a win.
Pros: Fast, although nothing special when compared to other usb 3.0 drives
