1 out of 5 eggs This Drive comes with unremovable software !!! 09/09/2010

This review is from: WD My Passport Elite 320GB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive WDBAAC3200ABL-NESN Westminister Blue

Pros:

Western Digital normally has a nice product line for external drives - I have used the older Passport drives working as a network admin for backing up files or using as a nice PE imaging solution - I love the older units

Cons:

This new iteration of the Passport however comes with software that you may not want if you are looking to just store data AND the new sofware cannot be simply deleted as with past Passport drives - their install program will pop up everytime you plug in the unit - you can download a firmware update and then disable this unwanted software if you are technical enough and have the time

Other Thoughts:

Lastly Western Digital did not clearly label the box that there is backup software included that you will not be able to easily delete if you do not want to use it - this warning of course would discourage almost everyone from purchasing the new iterations of the Passport
