1 out of 5 eggsGreat when it works

This review is from: WD 1TB My Passport External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBBEP0010BBL-NESN Blue

Pros: Nice design, USB 3.0, comes with automatic back up software that feels nicer to use than the stock Windows 7 stuff.

Cons: Have had this device since early November of last year. I set it up to keep backups, but I also run a small youtube channel and it's handy to write to this external harddrive so I can shuttle footage between PCs. However, this device plain stops working if it's left alone for more than a few days, a week at most. Kinda hard to have autobackups (especially when they provide you software to do so) when the thing won't work properly.

Additionally, once the device stops functioning properly it is always registered as 'in use' even when it isn't. No back up is running, no files are open, yet the device will not let you eject.

If on the off chance I'm uploading a video to youtube from the device and it stops working, it fails to upload at around 95% or so with my luck (which makes a frustrating situation already more frustrating).

And no files can be accessed while the device is in this state, even though you can still technically OPEN the drive, you cannot view files, or if you already had one of the folders open, all of the data appears as corrupt.

The only fix I've found is to shut down the PC entirely and once off, remove the device. After that, booting the PC and plugging it back in, all files return to normal and the issue is gone.

Because of the sheer annoyance alone I would rate this two out of five, tops.

Other Thoughts: It's great when it works, but this is by far the most annoying, temperamental external harddrive I've ever owned.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Andy, we apologize for any inconvenience. For the best performance possible please avoid using any type of extension USB cables or USB hubs, which may cause power inconsistencies. USB 2.0 requires 500 mA to successfully charge the drive and spin it up, while USB 3.0 drives require 900 mA to properly function. As a troubleshooting step, we also recommend running either our WINDLG diagnostics software or Macs built-in Disk Utility to check your drives health.

5 out of 5 eggsWD Mypassport 1tb re review

This review is from: WD 1TB My Passport External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBBEP0010BBL-NESN Blue

Pros: Second review to first which I had problems with the unit disconnecting all the time. WD sent me a RMA and I sent the unit to them, they replaced it free of charge and it has been working GREAT since I installed it a few weeks ago. NO disconnecting problems. Thanks to WD, for their service and quick response.

Cons: No cons, My Passport seems to be doing its job now

Other Thoughts: Could have just been a bad unit, and thanks to WD and their support, I now have a good working unit.

This review is from: WD 1TB My Passport External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBBEP0010BBL-NESN Blue

Pros: Very high speed with USB3. I just copied 8Gb in less than a minute.

Cons: PROPRIETARY CONNECTOR. If you lose the 12" cable that comes with it, you're out of luck.

Also, not much vibration dampening. I bought this for my music studio, and if I set it directly on my desk my mics will pick up the whirring. (I have to set in on a thin book instead.) That means that this drive is probably also susceptible to vibrations, so no using it on the go unless you're ok with a short lifespan.

4 out of 5 eggsGood HD

This review is from: WD 1TB My Passport External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBBEP0010BBL-NESN Blue

Pros: Think the non standard HD size is possibly a plus since it may be better built than the standard size smaller laptop drive. Time will tell.

Cons: I agree fully with a previous post that mentions this:"Kudos to NewEgg for using UPS ground for the free shipping. UPS never takes more than overnight to ship from NewEgg's warehouse in Edison, NJ to me in New Haven, CT, even though the service is only guaranteed for 3 days. Same with first class mail from the U.S. Post Office. By contrast, NewEgg's FedEx SmartPost takes 3-4 days for the same distance. I always criticize NewEgg when it uses SmartPost for items over fifty dollars, so it's only fair to praise them when they stick with UPS ground."
( My SmartPost from Newegg takes 6-8 days..to Utah. UPS takes 2 days max!)
