Lowsy software

Forget about locking the drive.

R. Brown, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive because of the advertised security feature. Only after installing did I find out that the password option for locking the drive only works when connected to a computer with administrative privileges. I assume that is because it installs a program to handle this feature.

Awful software of WD Brand!!

Julio C. Montiel "Julio Montiel Silva", Amazon
14 November 2010
  • Summary: I felt so sad and disappointed about WD Brand. I couldn't believe it. How on earth they could design this software. Reading all the comments, I realized that I had to use my own software to have the freedom to use my own backup method.

Nice drive but quirky software

PT Cruiser, Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: The slim, compact size of this back-up drive makes it easy to carry along when traveling and is nice because it doesn't take up a lot of room on your desk. 500 GB of storage is great considering it's small size.

Good Hard Drive

Andrew Perreault "Andrew", Amazon
11 March 2010
  • Summary: This hard drive is ok. Be aware that it says 640 GB but sense it comes with the software it only has about 500 GB. Im guessing the software uses the other 40 GBS? Other than that seems pretty easy and fast. Stand is nice when you want to leave it at your desk.

My experience with the drive I got was only OK

Happy2015, Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: The drive has two partitions. The smaller partition (a little over 500 MB) shows up in Windows as a CD-ROM drive containing the WD SmartWare software for encrypting, backing up, and retrieving data; the remaining partition is for data storage.

You will love it or hate it... here's why

Cheap finish, average performance, great portability.

Bartosz Brzezinski, Amazon
1 March 2009
  • Summary: Overall, I like this hardrive. It is small and light, fits perfectly in my bag. Compared to the essential version, I would expect a better finish. It's still plastic, though matte and not as easily scratchable. The drive gets really warm after just a few minutes of use.

Not worth the price premium over the lower cost model

Jerry Saperstein, Amazon
20 October 2008
  • Summary: They charge substantially more for this model than for the . What do you get for the extra money? Nothing of significance or even substantive value. A somewhat burnished case finish which adds nothing. A drive activity diode which adds nothing. A cheap cloth pouch which adds nothing.
