  • 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 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. The cable is also too short. Other than that, I do like the product. It's a great size and is super portable: an excellent alternative to external drives that require power.

  • Summary: My husband purchased two of these, one for us and his Brother. It has been working out Great so far. Sure has taken the weight off our hard drive. I can't wait to see how it transfers to a laptop.

Gets the job done

  • Summary: I bought this device in order to store coaching tape for football coaching. I wanted to clear space on my computer and still be able to access the games easily. This item shipped quickly and was easy to open; it didn't come in one of those irritating anti-theft packages. Formatting it for my Mac took a few minutes. Everything has been smooth.
