great drive, USELESS software for 64bit

one fewer WD future purchaser, B&H Photo
28 January 2009
  • Summary: If you run 64-bit Windows then the included software is worthless. I wish WD had published that somewhere before I spent the extra money on the "Elite" model to get the backup software. Their customer service did nothing to rectify, so I'm pretty frustrated with them. The hardware itself is fine, but without the software it's really no different from any other piece of hardware.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet, Reliable
  • Cons: Worthless software

Advice for Mac Users

  • Summary: I have maxed out my hard drive, and so was looking for a portable drive for extra storage. I have to admit that I was attracted to the Western Digital passport for its looks. However, Mac users take note: Western digital's "titanium" does not match Mac's "titanium" (a minor point, I know). The major problem, however, is that unlike an Ipod, the WD drive is not "plug 'n play" on a Mac.
  • Pros: Couldn't get it to work
  • Cons: Difficult To Setup, Difficult To Use

Bremst den PC

  • Summary: Ich habe die externe HDD schon vor 1 Jahr gekauft und komme - trotz intensivem Kontakt zum WD-Kundendienst - mit diesem Teil nicht klar. Nach langem Schriftwechsel stellt sich heraus: mein Norton Internet Security (2010 und 2011) hält das Teil für feindlich und drum geht fast nichts mehr. Wollte die HDD dann für meine Musik mit der neuen Philips MCD716 einsetzen - Fehlanzeige, war mit 500GB zu groß!

  • Excerpt: Possiedo questo HD da circa 8 mesi, l'ho ordinato su internet pagandolo 99 € ora presumo lo si trovi a poco più della metà. L'HD è piccolo, grande come un portafoglio, si infila facilmente in tasca. La pecca più grande è che ci si deve sempre portare di ...

Nicht schlecht, aber...

  • Summary: leider auch nicht optimal. Die Festplatte ist sehr schön klein und auch wertig gemacht. Praktisch auch das kleine Dock, leider trifft man den Kontakt-Stecker nur schlecht. Leistungsmäßig ist die Festplatte ok, auch schön leise und ausreichend schnell zur Datensicherung. Was mich stört ist die WD-Software, ohne die ich offensichtlich die Platte nicht als Time Machine Backup (Mac OS) nutzen kann.
