This review is from: WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive WDBY8L0020BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Drive read/write speeds are excellent. No external power needed. Small/portable form factor. Excellent aesthetics.

Cons: Included USB cable is a little short.

Other Thoughts: Before owning this drive, I have never had an external HDD fail. My 6 year old Buffalo (500gb) that I was replacing is still alive and kicking. I gifted it to a friend after receiving my WD drive. Drive failed at roughly the one year mark. All data on the drive is lost. I will be returning the product, and hopefully get a replacement that will last.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat backup drive

This review is from: WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive WDBY8L0020BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Was able to partition it in 2 1TB partitions to allow one to be used on all computers (I have a mac and a pc) and 1 partition was for very large movie files. I've come nowhere close to filling this thing up. It runs quietly. I've had it for a year and it's worked fine on multiple computers and transfers quickly. So far this HDD is a great value for the price. I bought it at $200 and at the current price it's a great drive to backup a mass of photos or video.

Cons: The white indicator LED it quite bright in a darkly lit room, but that's nothing a sticker/post it won't fix.
Doesn't come with a carrying bag (but both these cons are cosmetic)

Other Thoughts: I've yet to try it with a USB 3.0 port

Pros: Great drive, no problems setting it up.
