Summary: Worked just fine for two years, then dropped dead, taking with it my data. Fortunately, I use a rotating backup system, so my loss was minimal. But for a drive to die after two years, with almost no handling, shock, temperature swings, power spikes or other environmental insults, is not acceptable.
Summary: I think this thing lasted like 3 days before it crashed and I had to send it back. I'm sure it's probably rare that that happens. Still, my next major storage investment will be in a SSD. Tired of failing HDDs.
Summary: My first WD Backup drive failed slowly - so I bought a second one in time to get my most valuable files (family photos, the last photo taken of my dog before he died) transferred to the new WD. I don't know why I went with the same company. Unfortunately, I did.
Summary: This external drive stopped working less than three months after I received it. The icon no longer shows on my mac. It can't be repaired by Disk Utility. Very disappointed. This has been a waste of money.
Summary: My WD Passport for Mac, purchased less than a year ago, died completely after a 1-foot drop onto a carpeted floor. Two data recovery experts I consulted (one independent, one at Tekserve in NYC) specifically said that the WD Passports are notoriously unreliable.
Summary: I have a few WD drives. They are good, reliable drives. I bought a My Passport for Mac, 2TB, 3 days ago. Today, I can't even see what I saved on the disk. It makes weird noises, and it just appear to have stop working.
Summary: I'm pretty conservative with my gear, and I especially use my kiddie gloves when handling expensive electronics like this. I kept this at home to use as a backup for my laptop's hard drive. I took a road trip when I moved back across country.
