    I used the 2 TB USB 3.0 drive to image several laptops and pc that I just upgrade to Windows 10. I also used it to restore the image to new SSD drive to replace the old HDD. Works great. The other day, my wife 6 months old PC data drive died ( just totally disappeared from my computer). I was able to pop in a newly purchased WD blue and re-image the data drive from a recent image. Now I have about 5 WD USB drive from 1tb to 4tb. Lots of image versions of the multiple laptop and pc.

    ive only had this for a day but compared to other external hard drives this one is the slimmest smallest i have. its about 1/4th the size of the older model passports. the actual memory size is 1.81 tb. and it comes formatted as ntfs. i will most likely try to use fat32formatter to convert it to fat32 so it will work on my tv and playstation3 to play video files. one thing that concerns me us when i plug the usb chord into the top it has a flexibility up and down to it. im not sure if this is good or bad. maybe its on purpose to give it some leeway to not break, or maybe this is a flaw and it might snap easier leaving the thing useless i dont know. its extremely light says compatable with window 7,8,10. but i think if i make it fat32 then i should be able to use it on xp

    I'm an audio engineer, and I use this as my storage for all the projects I am currently working on. I record audio directly to this drive, and occasionally edit video as well. So far I haven't had any hiccups, and the drive is able to keep up with all my demands. I run projects recording plenty of live musicians at the same time: from entire close-mic'd drum kits, to small orchestras, and this drive is my primary recording drive. Hardware encryption works like a charm, and I have it enabled, without experiencing any noticeable performance penalties, which is great. Overall, it is a robust, slim, portable hard-drive which keeps up with my demands as an audio engineer.

    This unit was for storage of downloaded movies that were to be consolidated from several different areas. The unit was familiar because I already had several and this new one performed very well for what I intended. I am very pleased with its performance.

    I use it as an extra hard drive for my old ps4. Transfers data between the console and the drive at a slow rate. But the games are downloaded and written on the hard drive pretty fast.

    I am able to load all my pics/home videos and view them on my TV. The only problem is I have to leave it unplugged from the TV unless in use....otherwise it squeaks like it is playing. Doesn't squeak when I am using it so I don't really know what the problem is.

    This WD Passport serves my backup needs well. I purchased it to upgrade to current technology, having appreciated a backup in the past to which I had to restore after a hard drive crash. Well worth the peace of mind!

    This device is small and compact and holds more data then we thought we had. The price was the best after shopping and comparing with other external drives. Easily downloads data with very minimal instructions.

    Nice pocket drive. I gave 4 stars because I assume it is a spinning drive. If it were SSD I would give it a 5. I’m not a fan of the WD backup software but I just use what’s built into the computer and it’s fine. Or do a manual backup if you prefer.

    Set up on a MAC was not easy for an average person. Im well versed in computers but am not a techie and it was frustrating to set up. Once I got it going, it works well. A bit slower to download bc of the extra step on a Mac, but I was moving some large files.
