This review is from: WD Passport Portable 250GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDXMS2500TN
Fast, large capacity and quiet! Very slick looking. It's about half as tall and half the weight of my Western Digital 40 GB external drive. I can't hear it running but I can feel the slightest vibration when I put my fingers on it.
On my Dell laptop, it runs fine off the included USB cable. When I tried using the USB port on my docking station, the drive would not work. To remedy this, I ordered a 'Y' cable. This cable includes to USB plugs that plug into two USB ports on the docking station and a mini USB plug on the other end that plugs into the drive. Sadly, I cannot use the 2 USB plugs in the same area on the docking station as they won't fit on top of one another. So, I have one plug plugged into the back of the docking station and one on the side of the docking station.
I reformatted it to NTFS. It works well on my Vista laptops and my XP desktops. I would definitely buy this drive again without even thinking twice about it.
