Summary: I have and older WD passport that I have use for quite a few years. I had good luck with mine, so this one was a Christmas gift to someone else. Beings I never used this since it was a gift, I gave it 4 stars.
Summary: Works well thus far and I've had it for several months now. no complaints. It's small and quiet. PLENTY of space for my photos, videos, and documents. Easily portable. and nice to look at when it's on your desk. a very good buy!
Summary: This product works fine, that's not the problem. I've been using this portable hard drive for over a year. During that time, I believed its outer shell was constructed out of titanium. Today, I find out that isn't the case. I always thought it seemed weaker than titanium because the shell would flex with a little pressure.
Summary: Good external drive, but the connection of the dock is a bit fragile and I prefer an USB MASS STORAGE interface than de SES DRIVER which comes with this drive. The hard disk inside is a WD Caviar Blue.
Summary: Who knew you could fit 500 GB into such a tiny container? I love the color (red) - it matches the NY Hoodie Hard Drive Case that I also bought. What I didn't like was the continuous backup that occurs with the included software. I prefer to detach the hard drive occasionally (You're supposed to keep your backups somewhere else anyway, in case of fire, etc), which wasn't easy due to the continuous backup.
Summary: If you're prepared to deal with this drive's somewhat quirky way of operating (showing up as multiple devices when connected etc.) then it's actually a very nice product. I've been using it for a few weeks with no problems, and the tiny form factor is really nice as it is significantly smaller that the previous generation of portable drives (due I think to the USB interface being integrated into the drive itself so there are no additional electronics required in the...
Summary: Western Digital My Passport Elite 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive WDBAAC5000ACH-NESN (Charcoal) This little monstrosity is perfect......just a little larger than my iPhone, and it has 500 GB of storage space! Crazy how these things keep getting smaller and smaller. The outside looks very sleek, and it fits without any problem into my laptop bag. I plan on using the Passport to store lots and LOTS of videos.
Summary: This external drive works great the only downfall to it is the software sometimes gets a little figity and you have to install it on the computer your using. Not a big deal but still annoying. It's extremely fast though and secure. All and all its a great product.
