4 out of 5 eggs1Tb usb 3.0

Pros: 1Tb
USB 3.0
Lived through a few drops (thought I haven't dropped it while in use)
Read/Write speeds comparable to mechanical internal HDD's (to be expected)

Cons: Expected - not as fast while on USB 2.0 but that is to be

Unexpected - doesn't seem to be as fast as native USB 2.0 external HDD's, while plugged into a USB 2.0 port. This is only an issue because USB 3.0 has not yet replaced USB 2.0 :(

Other Thoughts: I really wish USB 3.0 would be put in place on ALL machines that are being put out by the big microsoft "Royalty OEM" manufacturers... even if it is only one or two ports. It would really save me time when I'm stuck re-imaging PC's from this thing.

3 out of 5 eggsworked for a few months

Pros: Quiet. No issues until I dropped it.

Cons: Seemed about the same speed on a new usb3 computer as on an older usb2 rig. Not sure what was going on there.

Other Thoughts: Dropped about 3 feet onto a cement floor. Could read parts of it but not all. Disk fix and reformat both failed.

Really miss the old Samsung external drives the the protective cover.

Could make Windows 7 image backups to it, but could only find them when connected to a usb 2 plug.

5 out of 5 eggs=)

Pros: Good price for the space. Quick shipping. And not fugly, which helps. Fits all my school videos, music, and the contents of 2 older desktop PCs.

Cons: So far so good.

Other Thoughts: I've had a bunch of different externals and internals, we'll see how WD holds up against Samsung, Hitachi, Seagate and the others.

1 out of 5 eggsUnable to read/write

Pros: I purchased 2 of these 1TB HDD. 1 of them works fine.

Cons: I purchased 2 of these 1TB HDD. 1 of them is able to read/write for about 1 minute then it stops working. I didn't work on the bad HDD until just last week because I had setup the first one and it worked fine and my initial test on the 2nd one was fine because it could read/write. I didn't plan on doing extensive testing because that should be done by WD when they send out a product. I am very unstatified with the HDD.

5 out of 5 eggsBomb

Pros: Compact.
Fast.
Sturdy Cord Connections.
USB 3.0!
Great Look!
Convenient and Easy!

Cons: On occasion, it takes a slightly longer time to load if you read the disk immediately when it shows up in Finder or My Computer. Pretty "colorful" if you catch my drift ;)

Other Thoughts: Buy it. Sturdy. Easy. Stoked.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Item

Pros: Tons of Space.. Fast, Small. Works great. No sound at all, very little heat. Even when I was off loading a smaller usb to this device it was cooler than the other. Very Nice

Cons: Cord is very short. Expect to be very close to usb port.

4 out of 5 eggsWD My Passport SE 1 TB Meta.. blue

Pros: Works 80 percent expectation. Got for 80 bucks and beleive OK or not bad at that range. Usage is up to MEDium level. USB 3.0 is nice media content 5 GB - in - less than 10 mins. However depends on file format. Used on Windows XP, Vista and not tested on Mac. Over all satisfactory for MEDium usage.

Cons: Delicate enclodure is some what not steady, but its OK. Process LED light is very small, which shows copy status. It might have little bigger like 'My Passwort Essential' which gives bright glow/light. Probably 'Esentially SE' is smaller. USB cable some what delicate, need to see in long run. Device Software might be preinstalled rather downloading.

Other Thoughts: When we hold we feel delicate.

5 out of 5 eggsNice portable drive

Pros: Great product, nice and portable. Especially good for music collection that is used on different devices

Cons: WD advises to unplug when not using it, so you can't just leave it plugged in and forget about it. Because of that issue I would not use as an ongoing backup type drive

5 out of 5 eggsGood choice

Pros: good size, fast transfer speeds with USB3 (I think I was seeing 80MB/s)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've had a couple WD passports and they've held up well, this drive has USB3 which speeds up those backups.
