The price seemed fair. I turned away with a frown of stubbornness and returned to my search. But the software is very basic and pretty ordinary. The price of the Passport drives all models changes frequently. ADobe Reader and some google bloatwares. Some people consider the short cable that’s included to be too short, but it’s mobile!

I say if your thinking about buying it.
The price seemed fair. I purchased this drive so I could store files on it and not clog up my desktop hard drive. Great purchase, silent and very portable This external drive was affordable and has proven reliable. I prefer rectangular shape rather than rhombus shape.
My 3 year old portable hard drive from Transcend came with an alternate direct power and a power cord included!! It is not has tough and cannot handle on the road travel.
After researching the problem of the device not being recognized by Windows, I found out that a whole lot of other people end up with the same problem after using the Passport for a while. A little over prized considering the features that comes with it. The Lacie Little Disk has a cover that comes off, but wd25000xms-00 Aegis avoids westdrn parts altogether. Wish WD comes with a GB passport hard drive. I then took out the WD drive from the plastic case and installed it in my laptop.
The USBs in my computer are not enough to power the machine, so I ended up with a beautiful, shiny brick. You should check before buying it, if you use it with a loptop. Its really small and compact and fits right in my pocket. Having only one USB jack more on this point below.
My information is valuable, and don’t trust this harddrive with my recycle bin. First they told me to do what I had already done, then they pointed out that WDSync is NOT backup software and should not be used as such.
I was expecting a backup software which could do an incremental, on-demand, selectable file backup and sync. I just wanted to use this for as extra storage, so I deleted the stuff pre-programmed on the drive. It has fallen a couple times to the floor without losing my data, which is more than I could ask for.
Not that I had any problem, I just wanted it to go faster. I travel often, so, very please I attempted to use the trial version of Paragon Partition Manager to reformat it without destroying the data, but it didn’t work fwiw, Paragon successfully reformatted the internal WD Scorpio Blue hdd that had my OS on it, so there must be something going on here.
Nothing much can be done or probably I couldn’t do much. Would be nice if it comes with a carrying case.

My old transcend portable was made of aluminum. The surface of the Passports shiny, black material can be easy to scratch if you throw it around or keep it in your bag with other items.
Well worth the money! My ipod was the most reliable harddrive I’ve ever had Use it mostly to carry my virtual PCs around and to have backups when in need.

The price of the Passport drives all models changes frequently. Formatting will erase the data currently on the drive, so make a backup I’ve connected my drive with a longer cable, since the one included requires the drive to sit on the CPU because of how short it is about 12″ It then connects properly and works fine. I feel ripped off Only wish the USB cord was longer. It was everything as advertised and the sleek and compact look made it a very handy devise to carry around.
