    My grandson wanted a drive to hold as many movies as possible as he is starting his career as a Marine and doesn't know where he will be stationed. 3 TB is a lot of storage -- I know he will enjoy it.

    I bought this as an additional disc for media storage and I needed room enough for 4K movies and enough speed to prevent playback lag. Plugged into a USB 3.0 port,the WD 3TB Passport works perfectly..and this is my third one so :Yes , I'd buy it again.

    This is the best portable drive I've ever purchased. Not only is it fast and quiet, I am able to fit all of my music, movies, and most of my TV shows from iTunes onto it to free up my computer's hard drive. I'll definitely be buying another one soon.

    I needed a new portable hard drive for my video editing work. This one has been a trooper so far, especially because I edit mostly 4K footage right off of it.

    It to much to say on the hard drive other than it has a ton of storage and wasn’t crazy expensive. It has yet to crash on me and received the 200+ Gigs of data rather quickly.

    This is the only brand that I will buy for portable storage. Very easy plug in and store any of my data, pictures, videos, documents or any files. I have purchased WD (Western Digital) products for years now with complete satisfaction.

    I intended to reformat this drive to Mac format, as I have done with dozens of drives. I don't know what's different about it, but this drive will not reformat. If you have a Mac, buy a drive that is already formatted for your computer.

    I purchased this to back up my photos on my surface pro and I love it. What more can you ask for! I price matched with Amazon so be sure to check that out when making any purchases at best buy.

    The store was all out of the one I had and wanted to replace and the employee suggested this one and said it was the same thing just smaller which worked great!

    External hard driveWork as planned. I needed it for a back up from my computer. I have an SSD hard drive in the computer with the small memory so had to load all my photos onto the external drive which was smart anyhow.

    Would recomend this product just based off the storage alone, works well with both os but not sure that its cross compatible so would only use it for one system

    I purchased this to save vacation pictures. Since I have used it for picture storage, backing up my PC, and as extra memory for PS4 games. Very easy to use and I have had no issues. Definitely received more than I expected!

    I have purchased several of these because we take a lot of sports pictures. It’s a great way to keep your photos. Easy to use and the small size is great in regards to storage.Will probably purchase another one in the near figure.

    No selection available in store. (Criticism of store management in Riverdale, Utah, not product). Only one on the shelf and no protective cases at all in store. Had to order one online from Amazon. Product itself is good. I own several.

    This is my third Western Digital external drive I have have bought recently after having disappointing crashing and loss of data on two of my Seagate drives. I have been using WD now for about six months and they have performed flawlessly.

    I now have 5 external USB drives to backup data and this drive so far (about 2 months) is really working out well. Super fast backup, small and easy to move around. It doesn't get in the way when attached to the computer you are backing up.
