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.

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

Bob Tobias "Robert Tobias", Amazon
22 December 2009
  • Summary: You'll hate it... If you're looking for a general purpose portable USB drive. There are smaller, less expensive, and more solidly built drives around. For example Seagate FreeAgent Go 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive ST905003FAA2E1-RK (Black) or SimpleTech by Hitachi Signature Mini 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive FS-U25/500E (Espresso) . Also, you *need* to use the cables provided with the drive.

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 Western Digital WDME3200TN My Passport Essential 320GB USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive (Midnight Black) . 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. Stick with the "My Essential" model that offers the same functionality at a lower price.

Overheated Western Digital My Passport Elite 250

Timeless "Annie", Amazon
3 April 2008
  • Summary: I just purchased the new My Passport Elite from Western Digital. It didn't come with any manual and the installation is confusing. It came installed with some software but you don't need to use them. There is no instruction on how to start using the hard drive. I called the tech support, they are not very helpful. You thought you can just drag and drop the files into the hard drive but no, you can only copy and paste. When I try to drag and drop, the computer blank out.

Bremst den PC

Margit Flierl "Margit Flierl", Amazon
28 February 2011
  • 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!

My Passport: piccolo ma grande!

bisior, Ciao
11 August 2010
  • 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...

M. Ailinger, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • 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.
