  • Summary: Very nice little external hdd, got it for an ultrabook that only had an ssd and it adds the additional storage the laptop needs. It would have been nice if it had more capacity, but by the time I use the 500gb much larger drives will probably be available for the same cost
  • Pros: Fast, Quiet, usb3
  • Cons: a little larger capacity would have been nice

My Passport for MAC + anyone else

marcus a., Newegg
7 November 2012
  • Summary: VERY short USB2.0 cable included, only 18". Does not even reach my front USB ports from my desk.
  • Pros: Very small compared to other 500GB externals I have owned: 4.35" x 3.23" x 0.6"
  • Cons: Seems to be easily crushed. Squeezed between my fingers lightly and you can feel the casing pressing in a little too far.

Small and Portable

Sean R., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm also not that big of a fan of WD's SES thing. While it might be a nice addition to the drive, I do wish there was a way to disable it altogether, especially if you're just using the drive as simple backup.
  • Pros: It's WD, which is a pretty good company for hard drives. The outer casing also looks pretty stylish, and is somewhat durable.
  • Cons: The cable can be a bit on the short side, depending on how you want to use it. It does seem to be using micro-USB however, so it may be possible to use a longer cable if you happen to have another one around.

Works as advertised, but slowly

  • Pros: Attractive styling with brushed aluminum top and black plastic bottom. Worked immediately out of the box. Packaging was well executed, with no need to fight through tough plastic to get the drive or accessories out. Drive runs cool. Not ultra sensitive to movement of the USB connection at the drive side like many other external drives I have run across. Small rubberized feet on the bottom of the enclosure. Comes with tools installed onto the drive for checking SMART s...
  • Cons: Short cable...incredibly short. Not suitable for desktop use unless you have a hub handy or you buy a longer cable. No eggs off since it is not advertised as a desktop solution. USB 2.0 only, but no eggs off for that since the drive has no hope of saturating the USB 2.0 interface anyway which is 48 MB/s max. Slow sequential read and write speeds. Low platter density and slow 5400 RPM rotational speed account for the sub-par performance. One is usually not a total perf...

  • Summary: Using two drives for backup, 12 GB is transferred in less than 10 minutes. The included software has a lot of features to monitor and maintain each drive.
  • Pros: Fast (60 mb/s transfer rate), Included software is full of features
  • Cons: None
