Sleek portable hard drive12/5/2010
small hard drive, easy to carry around, no power source needed, perfect for my needs
Crashed after 8 months!10/5/2010
I purchased this hard drive in January 2010. Last week, I was copying a large amount of data to the drive, and it just stopped working. I tried it on several different laptops, and although it still powered up, I could hear the arm making an unusual grinding noise after about 20 seconds. It could not be recognized on any machine. I tried data recovery software, but had no luck. I have since sent it to a data recovery specialist for a clean room evaluation, and will probably end up paying upwards of $1K to have my data recovered...about 300GB worth of stuff. Thanks WD!
Large capacity 1TB drive in a small form factor and it doesn't require a power cable. Created a TrueCrypt file and store my personal data on it, then move it off-site for backup.
This drive works on my PC but I purchased it to hook up to my Sony Blu-Ray bdp-bx57. The Blu-Ray says that it is an incompatible drive.

Great performance. Smallest size.4/21/2010
Easy to carry, smooth and sleek, silent, quick. An overall pleasure to have. The USB cable has a different plug on the side of the drive, therefore you can not use the standard cables. Just do not drop it 3 1/2 feet to the floor and you will be OK.
Get Seagate drive instead3/1/2010
went on vacation with all my files. Drive fell off the table for a distance of 3 1/2 feet and broke apart. drive stopped working and lost all my files. this product is weakly constructed and very flimsy plastic material. Bought the seagate with the same capacity and better harder plastic case.
Have been waiting months for this 1TB monster. Finally got one last night. Quickly ordered another. This is a really tiny drive. Expected it to be as big as all other Passports but is is a lot smaller lenghthwise although a little fatter as it is a 12.5mm not 9.5mm drive. Got a little annoyed at the VCD partition which takes up a little over a half gig but a quick search on the inernet gave me a solution. Simply delete the drive letter and ... no more prompts. It is still there as I think they might have put it in a flash drive but no more annoying prompts to install the back up software. I did have an issue with the supplied Micro B cable. The slightest wiggle made it pop off the drive. A call to WD tech support proved to be a pleasure. Spoke to an intelligent, articulate person who informed me that the correct cable would be shipped out to me promptly. Small price to pay to have the latest and greatest. Drive is lightning fast. Compared it to a 7200rpm smaller drive copying 2GB and it beat it by 20 seconds. Great product with great support.
