Pros: I have always hated WD products! Unreliable, short life, and poor support. But the specs (half star for potential only) on this drive were impressive enough for me to bite.
Cons: When will I ever learn? Drive worked for one day, then quit working while I was playing some mp3 files that I had copied to it. After searching the web for over two weeks and trying a mulitude of suggestions, reinstall driver, update software, new usb c
Cons: I've bought two of these and they seem fine at first - very convenient - but they have BOTH failed in the past month. I tried to re-format and the re-format failed, on both. I'll never buy Western Digital again.
Summary: - The cable is horrible: non-standard, and keeps disconnecting. Problems grow exponentially the more you use it. - WD smartware that you cannot remove (at most you can hide the virtual DVD unit, by installing the bloatware). A pity that this product is so bad, considering that the previous WD Passport models were great.
Cons: This is the third wd passport (and last) that we have bought. We have used it for 1 month now, and it's already taken a crap. the internals are horribly built, its' very fragile and you WILL loose data if you are planning on using this device.
Summary: Not plug and play with a mac. Had to call customer support and reformat the drive just to use it. Comes loaded with annoying software that pops up every time you plug in the drive. Not happy at all.
