Customer review by joshua13

5.0 stars by joshua13

This product met all of my expectations, shipping was prompt. The encryption is out of this world, my last e.h.d. got stolen so i encrypted this one. The drive stays cool, is quiet, and transfer speeds are good. When this one is full i will probably get another. the only drawback is that the cable is not as snug as i would like it and the case seems a little cheap. but for the money it is a great deal.

Customer review by retdlady

5.0 stars by retdlady

Great backup device - I had purchased another brand and had a horrible time trying to get it to connect as my machine would not boot up as long as it was plugged in - kept getting info from company it must be my machine. Took the other product back and bought the Western Digital portable and it installed right off the back and have not had any issues since. Settings are easy - came with good software on USB and great instruction manual. Have had WD long ago but went to Seagate and then my issues started. I will stick with WD.

Found this to be just the ticket for what I needed. Wish I could have bought larger unit. Nearly filled this with music, pictures and movies. Need more space for future growth. Will buy WD again, just larger size.

Customer review by Schleppy

1.0 stars by Schleppy

Purchased this drive for my business and within a few months it failed. Did some research and apparently these drives have a problem with locking up and not being able to fix. Warranty is useless. If you need a drive that only works well for a few weeks, then this is the one!

I have Windows 8 and the Passport started right up. Installing the software for automatic backup was straightforward. Backup was easy to set up and is fully automatic. With USB 3.0, it's also very fast. I like having the password and encryption. Great value.

Outstanding Drive

Customer review by Gonzo0967

5.0 stars by Gonzo0967

This is an outstanding portable hard drive. I actually own 2 of these drives. They are really compacted and space savers. I can carry all my music, pictures and movies with me anywhere without compromising space and weigh. The software that comes with it is great for auto-backup of my files. The only negative issue I have with this drive, which is not really against the drive itself, but against the software, is that the updated version has some bugs on it. What I recommend is that once you,be install the original program, deactivate the "search for updates" feature. The original program works fine for me. I own 2 of the 1 TBs and 2 of the 500 GBs versions of this drive. Now I'm considering to get the 2 TBs version for more added space.

There is lots of space to backup a pc hard drive at least for the time being. Tomorrows advancing apps and media may require more, but for the time being 1TB should be more than enough for todays PC, or at least for mine.

The drive is fine, WD is aware that there software does not backup all files and are working on a fix. I use a free piece of software call - Bvckup, which works fine. Second Copy is another fine piece of backup software too.
