Excerpt: This drive is fine, but my wife knocked it off the table, a fall of 29", and the drive can no longer be mounted. I would recommend the Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 instead. It's a little bigger, but you can drive your tank over it and it should be fine.
Summary: I purchased this my wife to store family pictures. There is so much on this thing that its going to take a long time to fill it. Once connection to the computer is made, performance is really fast. Very happy with this purchase and good deal.
Summary: The Passport Slim 2TB is an outstanding hard drive. It is compact, lightweight and works with USB 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0. It is plug and play and has an excellent transfer rate. The combination of capacity, cost and size makes this one of the best portable drives available.

Summary: Bought this to use a backup drive and for consolidating a 250 / 500GB drives I have laying around. I haven't used the included software so I cant give an impression on their functionality. I can say the drive feels sturdy, I toss it in my bad with other things and so far no noticeable scratches or dents. Big Fan of USB3 and this may sound nuts but I have had issues with different WD usb 3 cords so I would still recommend removing it when its in transit.
Excerpt: Used for on the go backups of digital photos. Great size and ease of use. Fast and reliable. No USB cable included in the USA product box where other countries it's included. Slips of surfaces easy so would be nice if a non-slip grip mat and cover bag was an included accessory.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Summary: Just upgraded from a WD digital one that was a lot bigger and had to be plugged into the wall. Very annoying. I have this and the ultra version. I wouldn't spend more for one or the other. Get the one that is the better price. Great compact size.
Summary: Just love it. Mainly because of the backup software. It runs while you are working and backup only what you want. And the most important, yo u don't need the software to restore, you can plug it in another computer and all files are there.
