It does its job

  • Summary: I am not a technically savvy consumer (can't comment on all tech nuances) - just needed a portable hard drive to back up my work. A network administrator manager at work recommended this model/version - I trusted his opinion! This Passport- does its job.

Still Working

  • Summary: Thin, light weight and durable. The drive read/write speeds are a bit slow through USB but otherwise the drive is great as a light weight portable HDD. Only problem is that it uses a rather unique USB cable. Have been using this device for at least 2 years now.

  • Summary: This is a lifesaver! I have really loved having this product to use. I use it like a USB drive. I would definitely suggest this product to anyone looking for an external hard drive.

nice but why the weird usb port?

  • Summary: This is my 2nd WD My Passport 500gb hard drive. The first one I bought a few years earlier, I actually liked better. The shape and finish were a bit better, and the old one used a standard mini USB cable. This one has some bizarre cable end I've never seen before, so good luck if you lose the cable.
