4 out of 5 eggsRemains to be seen

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BSL-NESN Silver

Pros: First one I bought long time ago, HDD started failing after 2 months.... The drive still works, but I use it seldom just to preserve the 750MB of data I have on it. So I needed a replacement that wasn't the same type but was a WD.

Cons: First WD failed after 2 months, it still works, but I use it so sparringly just so it doesn't completely fail and my data is unrecoverable... Needed a replacement so I can pull that data off.

1 out of 5 eggsCannot use

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BSL-NESN Silver

Pros: Size vs cost.

Cons: First impression - feels really cheap compared to the older Passports. Second impression - cannot use two at once. I backed up 450gb and then went to back that up to the second drive. Drive letter not assigned, signature collision, locked up computers (tried 3), hours of frustration. Finally let disk management run for hours. Shows the data size but will not let you access. Cannot format either.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the My Passport, as this is not the typical experience with the product.
A Signature Collision is a condition where Windows connecting two external hard drives of the same capacity to a computer running Windows and only one of the drives can be accessed. When each drive is connected separately, they can be accessed, but only the first drive plugged in to the computer will be visible when both drives are plugged in. Please follow the steps on the following link to make the second hard drive active and online to resolve the signature collision issue.
Only one drive is seen when connecting two WD external drives of the same size to a Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC:

1 out of 5 eggsVCD and & other SW Stinks

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BSL-NESN Silver

Pros: The drive itself is OK, compact, looks good, speed is enough for my needs. Doesn't really get hot just a little warm after extensive use.

Cons: VCD (vitual CD- see other thoughts), other bloatware, the included vinyl bag gimmicky at best- very hard to fit the drive in to but very easy for the drive to slip out of it if not held the right way (it does not have a draw string to close it for portability), the cable is a little too short, customer service is outsourced and hard to understand.

Other Thoughts: I would give it 4 stars if it wasn't for the Crapware. The VCD is a deal breaker for me. I was stupid enough to run the setup on it thinking maybe this is useful software I can use, but turned out to be really useless and nothing you cannot do natively in windows. anyway, I just went ahead and deleted all the SW on it thinking that would be the end of it. I also uninstalled all WD applications in my programs list. Big mistake, now every time I boot up or plug the drive in, I have to use the VCD to unlock it. otherwise it won't even show up. I've been searching all over the internet for a way to get rid of this crapware, but it seems to be impossible to do. I finally found HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool that claims to be able to do it, but it needs to do a full format and it is taking a really long time- it moved may be 10% in the last 3 hours. In my opinion, this is no better than the root-kits that came on some Sony discs a few years ago. If a company includes bloatware in a way that also makes it almost impossible to remove, then that company is being disingenuous and do not deserve my business. I don't care how good this thing will turn out to be or how long it lasts, the frustration I went though in the past several hours was just too much. No more WD for me.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the WD My Passport, as this is not the typical experience with the product. The WD My Passport ships with included backup software, which is a convenient and easy way to utilize the drive for backing up your system in a few easy steps. Although provided with the device, it is by no means required for utilizing the drive, nor is its use mandatory for backups, as the drive can also be used for storing backups with a 3rd party backup software, or as a primary storage device for copy & paste.

The WD Unlocker is only utilized or apparent when security is implemented on the device via the provided WD Security software. If you require security for your device, then the Unlocker must be utilized for unlocking the unit. If you do not require the security feature, you may remove the password from the drive with WD Security, and the VCD will neither be apparent, nor required for accessing the drive at that point.

5 out of 5 eggsJust as you woul expect from a WD Passport.

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BSL-NESN Silver

Pros: Fast, Huge, Reliable and Secure. Aside from the fact it is a handsome little drive, these WD 1 TB Passports are outstanding and cost effective.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is my third passport and the largest at 1TB. Reliable, fast and solid. Just plugged it in and began moving data immediately. Love the secure-encrypt feature of these drives. In five years using these drives I've never had problems with WD SmartWare or drivers.
