    I'm so happy with this purchase. I saw much cheaper ones on amazon even the same WD brand but I'm glad I bought this one. It's a beautiful little case, It fits the new my passport drive perfectly (I got 1TB). At $20 it's a little pricey for a case but it seems strong and will protect my drive perfectly. I love the hard cover it's very sturdy and the case looks kind stylish too with the Red zipper and red lining which is soft and suede-esque :) It looks much better in person than in the pics. A little compartment inside holds the USB. My only wish is that it had an elastic or something similar to keep the drive secure in the case I don't like when things move around.

    If your Passport drive is "mobile", YOU NEED THIS

    People typically buy external drives with one of two intentions - to leave it at home, or to take it with them when they're "on the go". If you're part of the first group, ignore the rest of this review, and don't even bother with a case. As for those who are part of the second group, do yourself a huge favor...immediately add this to your cart, & get it ASAP. Technically, it's a "soft" case, but in the form-factor of a "hard" case. Put another way, the material the case is made from is fabric, but it's very rigid. There's enough space inside the case for the Passport drive, with a small square area extending out that's perfect for the USB cable. No matter where I go, when traveling, I ALWAYS keep my Passport inside it's case...you should do the same. Stay protected, my friend.

    Provides good protection

    WD didn't make this an easy purchase for me. There were indications that it would work (because of other models of HDs that were listed on the package) but the list of HD models it would fit did not include mine and you couldn't open the sealed box. But, I bought it, tried it, and it worked - so be aware, not all current model HD's that the case fits are listed on the packaging. Since it is a semi-rigid case, it gives good protection and the case fits perfectly. Even though the HD comes nowhere near the corners of the case, the zipper is a little difficult to pull around those corners. Also, I would appreciate if the case had a wrist strap by which to hold it. Remember the good 'ole days when you got a case with the hard drive?

    I was skeptical at first...but that was because I hate buying protective stuff, or accessories for my electronic items... I am a computer technician so I generally take care of my stuff, so I feel I don't need things like this. Well, it had the big WD on it for Western Digital, my Drive was WD..so I just bought it. Glad to say, if I never bought this, my External would be meat right now, because it dropped on the floor from a high place...while inside my laptop bag...so it got smashed...but it didn't get damaged because of the case, at all. Would buy again.

    Only Adequate Protection

    I bought this as a storage and carring case for the Passport for Mac 4TB because it was a hard case to protect it. It is OK but would be better if it had a little more space to allow the USB cable that you need to use to connect it to something to be stored comfortably as well. You can get the cable in as well, but it is really tight if you do. I would have liked go compare it with a Insignia hard case to see if that had more space but that case wasn't carried at the store and if I ordered it the arrival date was after I was leaving on trip, so this case was my only choice.

    While I do not own a Passport drive, I do own a Toshiba Canvio Slim II and the WD Passport Case is a pretty good case for it. Since the Toshiba drive is super slim and small there is ample amount of space for you to probably put about a couple of flash drives and your usb 3.0 wire. There is also a velcro strap that you can use to neatly wrap your wire. The interior is nicely lined and there is a pouch on one side. The case is hinged with elastic to keep it partly closed. Gave it 4 stars because i think there needs to be a elastic that spans across to help keep the drive in place. Who knows, one day you might forget to unzip it correctly and accidentally spill your drive.

    I bought a portable 2 TB Western Digital passport external hard drive at Best Buy & knew I wanted a protective carrying case to go with it. Originally I was interested in the Nomad rugged carrying case but the ones they had in the store weren't compatible with the 2 TB model (not sure if there is a Nomad case for this drive). I saw some flimsy sleeve-type cases that, while inexpensive, didn't offer the protection I was after as a person who cycles everyday & [nearly] everywhere. To me this seemed like the next best thing. It's got a good hard shell, soft inside & the drive fits perfectly & securely (doesn't rattle around). There's also a little pocket for the USB cord so it won't scratch the drive.

    Much needed for WD Passport

    I needed a case for my 1GB WD Passport that I primarily use for work purposes. I first purchased the hard case that WD makes that is the same price as this one. When I got home I noticed that the hard case does not have a place to store the USB cable. I returned the hard case and bought this model. I have had no problems with this product and it has been durable enough to withstand some rough job sites. It has a nice pocket on the inside to store the USB cable and the inside is lined with a soft fabric.
