Summary: The software they had given for backing up files was taking all of RAM memory even the drive is not connected. While taking backup, it was too slow and took hell a lot time. And atleast using it as any other USB drive was ok for few days and after that even that has become slow.
Summary: This is the second external hard drive I bought from WD. I was hoping the reason that the first one broken is somehow my fault. However after year and half since I purchased the second one, it broke down again.
Summary: Up until now, I've liked Western Digital products. But after this, I'm not going to buy any more--Seagate or another company will be getting my business. I bought the Essential SE 750GB, expecting to have well over 700GB of space.
Cons: WD puts software on here and shoves it down your throat. They give you the option to disable it but not remove it. Had always bought WD UNTIL NOW! Found HP USB drive format util that got rid of it.
Summary: Yes, really, I'm just going to throw it out in the garbage, no joke, I don't want it in my collection of ext. HD's I'd give "0" eggs if I could. Could you tell I'm hot under the collar... You will be too. Don't listen to these people that are like....
Cons: This whole SES driver and VCD thing and not being able to remove it and having to install drivers to stop pop-ups........ Arrgh... I buy a lot of portable HD's and this will be my last WDC. Man just what we need is more "BLOATWARE" I move my ext HD's to many machine and now I have to install a dr...
Pros: Heee, price versus the other brands. But a month later, you understand why. See cons
Cons: The small to beggin with. Useless If thats not all, the hard drive died with in 2 months. This is the second time I get this same model, and the same thing happens. Really, avoid this hard drive at all costs.
Summary: OMG! Two hours later and I'm still plowing through PDFs and the WD website trying to figure out how to make this stupid Passport Essential SE work on my Mac ... and I'm a pretty savvy computer person. I've installed all the suggested software and read the how-to's ...
Summary: TOTAL JOKE! Never WD again! And by joke I don't mean a funny joke. I mean the joke that everyone falls asleep to. Then they wake up and the joke is still going on, and now they're mad because this whole time they thought the joke was a dream.
