5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

This review is from: WD My Passport Essential 2TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBY8L0020BBL-NESN Blue

Pros: Small, quiet, loads quick and has a nice sleak case.

Cons: The cable could be longer for some but it is not a problem for me.

Other Thoughts: I purchased a smaller storage version that came with a small carry case. I use it for this one which makes it protecting it easier while traveling.

5 out of 5 eggsInitial impressions are excellent

This review is from: WD My Passport Essential 2TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBY8L0020BBL-NESN Blue

Pros: Backup speeds are highest of any USB 3 device I have. Love the size, both physical and space. Wanted something for system images of all PC's and this is serving the purpose

Cons: as mentioned, short cable and wish it was a standard connection at the drive itself like my USB 3.0 Masscool enclosure is

Other Thoughts: On sale, it seems like a great deal. If you like to leave the included software on the drive, as I do, I saved a well over a hundred MB by deleted the foreign lauguages
