Excerpt: Often need to take a gigs of work related data with me when I travel (or work from the beach). My laptop has a small SSD. Passport drive provides me with the portable data solution I need. It is inexpensive, small, and transfers data quickly. It has a quality feel.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable
Excerpt: The only reason that I am giving this drive a four (4) star rating instead of a five (5), is that I have not had this drive long enough to know if it will make it the distance...

Excerpt: This is a nice little hard drive, and is perfect for someone like me that likes to make regular backups of my computer. It's USB powered so there's no "wall wart" to deal with, and it is as quiet as can be. Good to have something that's not overly complicated.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Quiet
Summary: I didn't expect this to last long but I did expect it to last longer than it did especially since I hardly ever used the thing. This is the first WD product I have ever bought and this will be the last.
Pros: Decent speeds when it worked.
Cons: Cheaply made. Broke in two months, used only 6 times to backup games. WD intergrates the horrible USB card into the drive's PCB which means if it breaks (which is what happened to me) you lose everything unless you transfer the platter to a donor drive which is very risky and hard to do.
