    Lacking important necessity

    Once I got home after purchasing this product I was shocked to discover this external could not be password protected. I never even considered this assuming no one would ever think it was a good idea to have an external lacking this option. It is on a list from WD that excludes it from necessary security options- this information should be included on the packaging. I’ll be returning it for a WD passport. Waste of a product coming from a very reputable company.

    Works As Expected--After Some Kinks

    Initially had issue others had mentioned--incredibly slow or not recording/accepting data. After several uses issue seemed to resolve. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I do not back up to this regularly. I store music I have converted from analog. I do the conversions when I'm in the mood for hours at a time and then nothing for months. The problem may re-occur so I couldn't recommend the product at this time.

    It's rather hilarious being asked to write a review about an item I purchased. I see it as: "Am I sorry I bought this?" - Right? So, for you, the reader, it's either a warning or a "Yeah! Go ahead! Buy it!" It's just - what if I'm one of those wingnuts who's really angry I bought this and, for whatever reason, I'll at least giggle if you're miserable, too? That aside, yeah - go ahead, buy it! I'm very happy with this... honest. (I'm also on here as LUV DISNEY AT TIMES)

    Super Portable & Small External Hard Drive

    I was surprised at it's small size but with 1TB capacity, it's more than enough storage space. Had to replace my old desktop computer and my ancient exterior hard drive just couldn't hold today's system and files. Installs in a flash and is so easy to set up. And, it's a super space saver. Great for keeping with your laptop so you don't have to worry about possibly losing files and photos when your're away from home.

    Unintended Use

    For those who didn't know, This external hard drive is compatible with the XBOX 1 and XBOX X to use as extra storage. Xbox requires a USB cord of 3.0 or greater to allow transferring of games and videos between devices. Once connected you just have to go to settings to allow XBOX to format your external hard drive and in 2 Minutes everything is set up and ready for use.

    a Great Product for backing files

    This product is amazing. I have approximately 11,000 songs and videos in my iTunes files that I added from Downloads, CD's and other sources. When my Old Pc (an 8 year old Gateway) started acting up, I attempted to use iTunes to transfer them to my new PC and it didn't work...only for the songs I purchased through iTunes. So, I purchased this Hard Drive and Joila'...was easy to transfer my old system to my new!!

    I had been searching for a storage device for my Xbox 360. I really enjoying going to best buy so when I saw this 1TB storage for $60 I leapt at it. I have barely used 30GB of storage for my gaming. Very easy to use and to set up. I recommend for gaming! The only game I found out I can't put on a storage device was Inquisition so make sure you take that into advisement, otherwise wonderful!!! Also compact and lightweight and doesn't overheat.

    I live in an area where we are often threatened by wildfires and evacuations. I purchased this external hard drive to back up my important files to grab quickly in case of evac orders. It was easy to use, even for a non-techy person such a myself. My computer has 2.0 usb plugs so it was slow to move files, but I just left it to go over night and all transferred well. Very happy with purchase and the black Friday sale price was awesome!

    First off, lighting fast delivery!!! Got this in less than 48 hours and the best part, FREE. Bought this for xbox one. Took it out of the box plugged it into the console hit format drive and in about 5 seconds it was ready to go. That's it. I was looking at the passport model but this one was $20 cheaper. So far I have not had any problems. Happy with the purchase. Transferred a few games already from the xbox HD and it seems to move pretty quickly.

    This is actually my fourth WD external hard drive I've purchased. These could not be more easier to use and have been perfect for saving lots of computer files and backing up my hard drives. I still have the other external hard drives that are used for specific computers and they all still work. I've carried these in briefcases and bags to work, dropped them on the floor, and they just keep working. I wish everything were that reliable!

    Small and easy to use

    I bought this to expand my PS4 storage. It is very small (about men's wallet size) and extremely easy to set up and use. In my case, I had to have the PS4 format the drive, but the drive itself was recognized instantly. I've seen no speed difference between internal storage and this drive even though I have the game storage switched to the external drive. An excellent peripheral for external backups and mobile projects (dev work, graphics, etc.)

    I needed a drive to back up all my pictures and video I have, didn't need a massive amount of space as I'm just getting serious about my photography so I figured the 1 TB would be perfect. I like that it's so small, it couldn't be any bigger than 5"x5". I had just a little trouble getting the backup process to start but finally got it. The 1 Tb will last me the length of the 2 year warranty and then I can upgrade to a bigger one.

    Bought this Saturday to backup my ps4 hd with. After formatting it (I went with exfat) hooked it to system and read it with no problems. Back up took about 2 hours or less (my PS3 took 6 lol) so very happy about the speed. Took even less time to restore my new hd with my backup. Would definitely buy again! Happy Customer!

    I purchased this for my son to take back to college with him. He has a laptop that is dedicated solely to gaming (Steam) online, and he is burning through his computer's memory pretty fast. This external hard drive will keep him up and running for quite a while. I have this same hard drive on my computers at work and at home, and I've never had a problem. I highly recommend this brand. The software is very "user-friendly," too.

    We were tired of using memory sticks for our twice-yearly backups of computer files so we decided to try this option. Given its price we figured even if it was a bust, it would be worth a try. This was a really nice choice - great capacity, quick, easy setup, and small in size. Thus far we don't see any downside to the drive, and we're pleased at having made the decision to use the WD drive.

    Just got the external hard drive installed last night. It is a compact unit and sits atop my desktop computer. I have little available room on the computer desk. I like the size of the unit and the 1TB capacity. I would have preferred a little more information on installation but I did work through the process. I would recommend the unit for its capacity, size, and price. Will have to wait and see how well it performs.

    Portable -Check Lightweight -Check Powered by USB- check. Works with Xbox one or Ps4- check. It checks all the boxes and does so in a Small compact stylish design. Western Digital is reputable and I still have a few old externals from 2008 running 24x7 as a media hub for Plex. This is the entry level standard and all you need to figure out is how much data you need to save by choose 1TB or higher.

    Don't know what to say - it's an external hard drive, does the job if you're looking for extra/backup storage. Comes with USB 3.0 connector, doesn't require external power like the old drives used to. 1TB should be sufficient for most people for backing up essential files they don't want to lose. The price was competitive with anything online and WD is a solid brand.

    I have been purchasing WD external drives for backup for years. It is a product I trust to always work well. It is light weight and reliable and I never consider a different brand. I use this one to transfer data between my desktop and laptop computers that I am currently working on. I do photography and am always working on different pictures so I always have a backup with me. Great product and again, very reliable.
