    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.

    We needed an emergency replacement for our dish washer. There were multiple choices both brad wise and choices of a Kitchenaid product. The sales representative was knowledgeable and came to help right away. A pleasant buying experience.

    I had so many photos on my computer that were hogging my storage. I bought this device to clear them off and I can't believe how much storage is still left on the drive! Also, it's small enough to slip into the laptop case with my laptop.

    We needed something to back up our files off our systems. However this turned out to be even better now if i go to another site we just take this to access files

    As a back up drive, it has performed very well.

    The drive has performed very well, workin g in concert with the Time Machine software of my new iMac. This was recommended by the Geek Squad after my initial purchase of an Apple Time Capsule failed miserably.

    I didn’t have any room on my Xbox so I purchased this and it was so simple with just a HDMI in my Xbox and everything connected on its own. I now have more than enough storage

    ''This was just what I needed to set up my home cloud system! I was looking for 3gb at a reasonable cost and the WD my passport was the right item for me. I have purchased other WD products in the past and they have never let me down.

    Although it's not very quick and it's disk based (which means it has a limited lifespan) , I bought it due to the cheap price and ease of using it. I think it was $120 at the time, and it completely holds my needs in terms of storage.

    Excellent product. I created an automatic daily routine to backup all my PC files in a daily basis. A lot of capacity and no problem at all to connect it to any PC using the USB port.

    Plugged this into my Xbox One (not the One S) and it automatically asked if I wanted to use it for apps and storage. Once I said "yes", the Xbox handled it perfectly. This is a great solution for expanding Xbox One storage!!!

    I use this for storing my photo library, which I access through Lightroom. Retrieval is fairly quick and very consistent. I have an older WD USB 3 drive that I back this one up with using SyncToy. It's a good arrangement.

    I've bought many of these passport drives over the years and only one has ever failed, which was replaced under warranty without too much hassle. This new design seems a bit sturdier than the previous design for the enclosure.

    I planned to use this drive as a network-attached device, accessible from multiple computers on the network. It doesn't work for that. I don't know why. It works OK when directly connected to individual computers.

    This probably a good product, just not what I needed. Explained to employee I was looking to upgrade my storage on my DVR, this was recommended. Unfortunately for DTV you need a different connection. So this was returned.

    I bought it to backed up files from my job. The 4TB external worked great. I am very happy with this item and I will update my review if I come across any problems.

    A difficult product to set up for an Apple Mac computer. It took me three attempts and I still had trouble with it. It was a couple of weeks and many headaches and reboots before the drive was working properly.

    The 3 Terabyte Passport External Hard Drive connects via a USB cord (provided) and is super easy to use. The file transfers are fast and easy. This is a great device.

    having owned several WD external drives, I'm happy with this one for the time being. Next step is to move to a raid setup and I'm going to try this one as one of a pair in a software based raid setup first. fingers crossed.
