Customer Reviews of WD My Passport 500GB Portable External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 Red
WD My Passport drive8/21/2013
Excellent drive that is easy to use and very portable.
Compact and Powerful8/31/2012
This WD external USB 2.0 hardrive is compact, powerful (even while being completely bus powered) and portable. I've been really putting this thing through its paces as the storage place for all of my audio production loop libraries. I've never had a hiccup when accessing and previewing those wav files during DAW recording. Super-fast and reliable response from this drive. Only had it for 2 weeks, so I can't speak to longevity as yet.
