    I bought this after a lot of research. Having an external drive is a must; having one with this much storage is a game changer. I still back up everything to at least one other drive, but this is my go to to keep everything organized and safe.

    If you need an external hard drive with an immense storage capacity you can't go wrong with this Western Digital 3 Terabyte drive. WD drives are very dependable so you can count on having no problems as long as you handle the drive carefully (don't drop it on a hard surface).

    I've been very pleased with the My Passport series. I have both the 1 and 2 TB versions and both, after a couple of years of constant use, still perform well. I expect no less from the 3 TB version. Simple to use and reliable. Fast transfer, I was hitting 120 MPS moving files onto this drive.

    I bought the My Passport 3tb to use as external storage for my Xbox 1 console, and setup was a snap. I did have to force a hard reboot of the system for it to recognize the drive, but once I did that, it formatted it automatically and now works great to store even more games and apps on my console.

    I bought this product to be able to download thousands and thousands of songs from a DJ's library so that I can go out and do this type of business as well. What a great tool! I can also use this to backup my personal computer. It was so easy to use and I trust that it will last a long time!

    This external drive works as advertised. I have a few weeks so I don't know how long it will last. I was using Seagate drives but I've had several failures with those. The reviews on the MY Passport drive are very good and so far it is working well. It will take time to see how it holds up.

    I purchased this hard drive to use with my xbox one. And so far, it's worked perfectly!!! I just plugged it in to the xbox, answered some on screen questions, and boom, I was set up and ready to go. And haven't had any issues... it's perfect.

    So far, this drive has met and surpassed my expectations. It is portable and small, plus it gets its power through the USB cable and not a separate transformer. It is USB 3.0 and it fast. I found that it works best hooked up directly to the laptop without using a hub or extension cable.

    The setup was easy and using the usb 3.0 the backup went very fast. I love the size of the drive, my stuff did not take up much room and I will be able to get many backups on this drive.

    I purchased this to archive video and photos. It writes and reads really fast and have had no issues yet after a few weeks. The only thing I wish it had was a software to partition a part of the drive for Mac files in case I need to share with Mac and Windows users. Otherwise it seems OK.

    I have enjoyed this little external hard drive. It requires no extra downloads when I used it. I also find the spend to be quick. (I moved 10,000 photos in less an an hour.) I love that it does not take out much room in my bag when I go to work outside the house.

    My ps4 was getting low on space. I decided on this hardrive because of the good reviews. Let me tell you, they were right! Small size drive with plenty of storage , it's quiet, fast, and usb powered. No external power cord! (Yay!) I'm very happy with this product!

    Great Little Drive But Takes an Extra Setup on Mac

    I purchased this for use as an external drive on a MacBook Air. Since it comes formatted for Windows it will not work directly - but is easy to update. Simply connect and ignore the Windows setup. Go to Disk Utility and reformat for a Mac. From there on it has been great.

    I’ve been using this drive for some time now with no issues. Currently I am using it as a password protected backup drive for my new MacBook Pro and love it. Extra backup security never hurts and this drive fits the bill.

    Love this product! I dropped my surface and had to get everything off prior to getting it replaced. Moving the information was simple and easy. Now use it. To load all my photos on for a backup copy in case something happens during editing process.

    I love this portable hard drive is so helpful with my photography buisness. I am able to upload photos quickly between photo shoots. The peace of mind of not having all my "eggs in one basket" is very helpful to me with my buisness.

    I'm using this for backups and it performs well for that purpose. Since I don't access it constantly, I hope that it lasts a good long time. I don't carry it around, but it is small enough that it would make a great portable storage unit.

    If you can pick it up when on sale, it's a good bargain for dollar vs. disk space. I had to return it and get an Western Digital. Although in the end, there was nothing wrong with the drive; all the USB ports on my clients server were bad (had a bad system board).
