    Great Storage System

    I recently purchased this unit for my work lap top. I had multiple choices in the store to choose from and the price point and how easy it is to use caught my attention. Within minutes I was on my way backing up my data. It is compact, fits in your pocket with an 6"-8" cable. So far after a month I have had zero issues. I would strongly recommend this product/Brand to anyone.

    Truth is my old 2005 iMac was not compatible with this device. The product was a good value at the time. I did read the system requirements for the device. I even asked someone in a computer store, not Best Buy, if the device would work with my computer. He said yes. I have owned other Western Digital hard drives before and have no complaints. Enjoy your purchase

    I had bought this for my son on sale because his PS4 had ran low on space. It required USB 3.0 or better and I forget how many GB for external storage. I didn't want to tie up my USB flash drives so I bought this. It is easily able to be transported. No issues in setting it up or lag in game play. Great buy for the price and very versatile!

    Needed to back up my broken down HD on Surface, Quickly. This is sustaining back-up system, I needed a quick back up, Never got the Western Digital program to install so it didn't work. FINALLY, just copied as many files to the drive as I had time to.... hope it makes a good storage disk. No doubt it would work as advertised, given more time to contact WD.

    Great Best Buy sale price for this. The size is literally like a cellphone, easy to travel with. It does have to be connected with usb to computer to upload as a backup---I wish there was an external hard drive like this that would simply upload using a memory card. But this is the second one like this that I have bought from Best Buy, due to the great sale price.

    WD easystore 1TB External USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive: USB 3.0 interface; automatic backup; data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps with USB 3.0. Western Digital is a leading manufacturer of external hard drives, so if you're backing up important files buy a name you trust. WD's software is easy to use and the drive is formatted as NTFS out of the box.

    fast, good quality, light, plug n play easy to use device. although not excellent, i had to format this drive in order for mac to see it. its very easy for me, but probably not for a person whose computer illiterate and/or impatient...first thing they'll do is return it to store. SUGGESTION: IF YOUR GOING TO MARKET DEVICE AS MAC READY/MAC COMPATIBLE then make it so. :)

    Good back up at a reasonable price

    No issues; Bought it, brought it home, read the instructions, and it worked! And I like things that work! Have always used flash drives but this being plug and play you can start saving data right away and it's as portable as a flash drive. The USB 3.0 interface enables fast file transfers. Now the grand children have the flash drives for their school work.

    I originally bought this to use as external storage for photos/videos, but then realized I needed additional space on my PS4. I plugged it in, formatted it through the PS4 menu, and was installing games in minutes. It goes to standby mode when the PS4 is off, and the drive itself is pretty quiet (compared to the PS4 fans especially). Great drive for the price.

    I was just looking for an easy external hard drive that you simply plug in your computer, transfer files, save and viola! This is definitely not the case. You have to download all this WD software and the somehow have it back up your computer. I still haven't figured out how to get the WD software to back all my files. I'll get back to you when I do.

    Works great on my PS4

    Bought it specifically for games storage on my PS4. Extremely easy to set up; plugged it into USB port 2, turned on the system. PS4 automatically recognized it and walked me through just a few very simple clicks to format it and make it my primary storage device. I’ll have to see how it’s lifespan works out. So far, great storage for a great price.

    The WD easystore 1-tb external usb hard rive is a super reliable high performance hardrive in my opinion. It is a fast and super easy to use device that allows you to store all files, videos, music and much more. Best Buy’s offert for this device was really fair and on top of that they will match the price with any online competitor.

    I have the original ps4 with 500gb. Games nowadays take up tons of space so i found myself having to delete old games. I needed an upgrade so i went with this. Its pretty cheap, and the 1TB is what I felt I needed. It is USB 3.0 compatible so it works perfectly fine with a Ps4.

    Small But Holds A Lot

    Well, I just got this but it appears to serve the purpose so far (backup storage for personal photos, videos, documents, etc.). I have another WD HD that has worked well for years and this new portable is much smaller but holds just as much. I haven't had it long so if I later have problems with it, I'll try to update this review. So far, so good...

    This external hard drive is easy to use. Use it just like a flash drive to save picture and documents externally. You can open a document you saved on the external hard drive and edit then save and then work on it any time after saving. I highly recommend this product

    Purchased as a backup and set to automatically back up files. It has done well, but the backup software didn't seem to compress well or something. My computer had 650GB or so to back up, but the drive wouldn't back it all up. Said there wasn't enough space. I had to pick and choose what was the most important to back up.

    When space ran out on my WD Passport backup drive, it was time to try and find a great replacement. This Western Digital easystore portable hard drive was perfect for a number of reasons, price being the selling point and USB 3.0 an added bonus. This thing is lightning fast and comes in a number of configurations for your storage needs..

    I know people that have lost data and for most it is devastating. These drives are not that expensive, but they are fragile (susceptible to drop damage). It's not likely that both your backup drive and internal hard drive failing at the same time, so do yourself a favor and keep your data in at least two different places.

    I got this hard drive at a steal price! It's so compact, it fits in my purse and sometimes even my pocket! I uploaded thousands of pictures and videos in minutes without any problems! It even told me when a duplicate was being added to avoid unnecessary copies of the same file. I'm in love with this product!
