    Perfect travel companion

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I travel a lot and find this little drive perfect for keeping all my data with me. I travel with 4 of the 2 TB drives. One is my Time Machine and the others contain all of my data files. Since I am ofter out of the country for months at a time and have poor internet connections this is perfect for me. When I get home I just synch the drives to the large hard drives I have there. Between that and some cloud storage I have never lost any data. I recommend these WD drives without reservation.

    Reliable & great portable drive

    • Written by from Tucson

    I purchased 4 of these drives more than 1 year ago, using them several times a week for SuperDuper! backups, Time Machines backups and TV/Video storage and they each have worked flawlessly. No "spontaneous ejections", no corruption and no loss of data. I plan on buying 2 or 3 more this summer.

    Robust and Solid

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I can't explain the other reviewers of this drive by my experience has been nothing but awesome.

    I use this drive as my main media (iTunes) storage device for my MacBook Pro. The size lends itself to sit perfectly on the left side of my 15" MBP without coming close to the trackpad. It's lightweight and has quickly become one of my most valuable pieces of tech.

    I have kids who have knocked and jostled this drive around... even dropped it on the floor. I nearly lost my mind but it is still intact to the writing of this review.

    It's been totally solid for me.... for about a year. I recommend this product highly!

    Excellent little drive

    • Written by from Wellington

    Don't let the 1-star reviewer fool you. This drive is excellent. I've had several of them over the past year with no problems. I regularly get around 85-90MBps transfer out of them. The other reviewer should note that EVERY hard drive manufacturer has drives that die, that is the nature of spindle hard drives. Back up your stuff and when a drive dies, just replace it. I've had great luck with WD's customer service too. They now offer to ship you a replacement drive before you ship back a faulty drive so that you can get up and running faster.
