    Awesome deal!

    Gotta love the "Deal of the Day" thing! As for the drive itself, it's perfect for taking stuff on the go. It's small enough to fit a shirt pocket and yet (the version I got) can store 1 trillion characters. That's about 233 4 GB Dvd. So, whether you're an author writing the next "War and Peace" or a shutterbug who needs a place to offload your photos, or whatever, this is a great product.

    This portable device is very light, easy to carry. I had the same product of version 2011 and version 2013. they are a little bit heavy. This one is smaller and lighter, which makes me feel comfortable. I just purchased it several days so have no comment on its capacity. Till now, it works very well. The speed is really fast. I recommend this one for those on tight budget.

    This WD portable hard drive (HD) is easy to use to reduce clutter and files on your desktop or physical computer hard drive! Easy access to the files on this HD. Also, it allows you to back up files regularly using a timed system! Once downloaded, it takes you through the steps of how to set up the auto backups! It’s so small and easily portable! Great buy!

    Not Mac Compatable as promised

    This drive was supposed to be Mac compatable. It isn't. It is pre-formatted with a FAT, so a Mac device and read it, but not write to it. I cannot figure out a way to format the thing so a Mac and read and write, because it will not let me format it. If a company is going to adverstise something as Mac compatable, then EVERY function should work with a Mac, not just reading files.

    Not an easy product to use

    I purchased the product to backup my laptop before a necessary factory reset. The process was very difficult for me both to backup and then restore. I found there was a lack of instruction for a novice like myself. I was grateful for support although it was hard to understand their verbal I nstructions. Needless to say I had to return the product. To sum my review up: not user friendly!

    I have had this WD for over 9 months, it works famously lot's of space, very portable works with all Windows Based PC's Dell, ASUS etc..A good portable Hard Drive to have if your on the go or if you have limited space. And if your PC is old or crash you need not worry all the data is transferable to any PC just like copping any file from a zip drive.

    Compact drive

    Overall, I found the setup process to be okay. The steps weren't quite as intuitive as I had expected but nothing major. Additionally, one of the programs it attempted to download was blocked by my antivirus software. I haven't noticed any degradation in performance, so I assume the program isn't needed. However, it does raise a concern.

    Fast & Cheap backup when on sale

    Admit I picked it up because it was cheap, and, as a USB 3.0 drive, potentially fast for local backup or file transfer. I was hoping to also use the drive in my car, but it is not recognized. Just don't know if there is not enough juice in the USB connection, or if it's the same difficulty I have with most USB 3.0 drives not being recognized by my car (2015 Subaru). Still well worth the money

    I bought this for a great price around Black Friday. I didn't end up opening it because I recently found the 2TB hard drive for about the same price (just a few bucks more). My intent is to plug it in to my PS4 to give it more hard drive space. Even though I haven't been able to use it yet, all the reviews i found on this said it should work just fine with video game systems.

    I am so glad I made this purchase. I moved all my photos and videos of my kids from birth to present (15 years) off my old storage device, which is the size of a Bible, and onto my new WD easystore. With the USB 3.0 connector, it took less time than expected (24,000 photos and videos) and now travels with me in my briefcase for easy access. For the price, you can't beat this device.

    I didn't want to deal with those typical bulky external hard drives nor having to buy several 128GB Flash Drives. This WD 1TB External USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive was just the ticket Easy to setup and transfer my files keeping them all in one place. So glad I bought it. Fits perfectly in my laptop case. Take it everywhere I go.

    Works with PS4

    I am using this drive as an external drive for my PS4. I purchased this and a 1TB Internal SSD at the same time, the performance improvement was significant. I store the most played game or games on the Internal SSD and all other games on the External Drive. 2TB was enough for me, I'm not a hardcore gamer.

    Great Backup Storage Device

    Purchased two EasyStore 1T Portable Hard Drives. The software is very easy to setup and timely runs backups to the specified frequency. Each week I switch the device connected to my computer with the other device in my fireproof/waterproof storage box thereby ensuring I have a recent backup fully protected without the risk of using a cloud service that may be hacked.

    Did Its Job

    I was able to do what I needed to with this device- move my massive files from one computer to another. However, I would not have been able to figure out the best way to do it (formats and such) without the help of Geek Squad. I guess one format is better than the other and allows for more flexibility. Anyway- I would recommend for its effectiveness and comparitive price point.

    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.

    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!

    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

    Back up 1 T drive

    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.
