    Shouldn't go wrong with a WD HD, this is my second. First one is 7 years old and fine but has been handled carefully. I researched it and it is the same as the Passport, but without the software and with a year warranty instead of the 3 year of the Passport. Worked fine for me in my 2.0 USB port.

    I have really liked the item but it should have had more instructions in the box. It has recorded all my pictures and seems to have more room for the rest of the items I need to record. Thanks for having such a good price on this item s
