i really liked the size of this item, and have trusted WD for some time. i needed some spare 1TB drives for backup/copies. these are easy to carry, plenty of space, built tough, and the color is nice, too.

Compact Portable External Drive4/25/2013
This is truly a portable portable external drive. It takes little space and is quite light. The quality appears to be standard WD quality. This is my second WD external in addition to several internal drives. This was exactly what I needed to backup my hard drive music. I'm pleased to have it.

WD 1TB portable HD - GREAT9/24/2012
I knew this was a great product as I have two others. Easy software for passwording harddrive to keep files safe. Once password is entered the access is "normal" - it's not slowed down.
I already have a few of these drives and they are great. I travel and this is my way of providing a back up drive and storage of office files without the bulk of a 3.5" size drive.
This is a great USB Hard drive. It is amazingly fast and the installation is a breeze. My Windows system recognized it immediately and I was able to use it in seconds. The shipment was on time and price is pretty good. I would definately recomend this drive to anyone looking for storage.
FIVE STARS!!!!!! This is a great USB Hard Drive. The installation was quiet easy even for newbie like myself. Windows picked up the Drive immediately and installed all the stuff it needed. It has worked great so I have no complaints. The shipment was also on time and I appreciate that.

first things first, FORMAT this HDD. there are unnecessary files that you don't need that could interfere with your PC down the road [leading to the dreadful "format now" message with your information already stored on it.] i am running this at usb 2.0 as the motherboard does not support 3.0. so far, works great, with no complains and does exactly what i wanted it to do [using this as a back up to move files off internal HDD]

Excellent Drive I am very satisfied with this external drive. Within 10 minutes of opening the package I was transferring pictures onto it. I have Windows 7. I opened the package up, undid the cord, plugged it into the computer and it took about 5 minutes to locate and install drivers and then I was good to go. I transferred over 300 pictures right away, lightning fast and it didn't even make a dent on the space available. It has 5-star performance, but a bonus is that it looks 5-star too. Very compact and stylish. It has a user manual installed with it that has more languages than I've seen on any other product, so if English isn't your first language you are set with instructions. The product includes 30 days of free telephone support during the warranty period that starts with the first call you make to tech support. Email support is free through the entire warranty period. I have not had to use tech support so it hasn't applied, but that is good to know.
