    SSD drives are like a Thumbdrive in that they don't have the traditional spinning disk of tradition drives. That makes them small, more sturdy, but they are a bit pricey. Prices on SSD drives have dropped, but a similar sized HDD will cost you less. This drive is a great way for me to back up my photo files, and quickly edit them in Photoshop or Lightroom.

    There are a lot more expensive options out there but for basic use this is a great value especially when on sale. I’m using this SSD with my Xbox One X to load game downloads onto and you can definitely see a difference in load time. Specifically on PUBG this really works well to increase the speed at which maps load. I would buy again.

    need I say more? This is a VERY slim (smaller-than-wallet-size) drive you can use to quickly transfer a tremendous amount of content. With it being SSD, I had no difficulty rapidly playing and editing 4K video located on the drive itself. It travels with me wherever I film!

    Why rent a cloud when you can use these? More secure and certainly faster access. This thing was so light I had to check the box before I left the store to make sure the thing was in it. Amazing. Western Digital still supreme on hard drive tech and price.

    Didn't realize it was so compact until I picked it up at the store. And I love that it has the USB cable as a permanent attachment, and the cable can be stored away in the cutout on the side of the unit - great idea!

    The drive works great. Unlike other WD drives, it was simple to reformat to store my Photos library on my Mac. I also appreciate the attached cable, as it addresses a common failure point on small portable drives
