Not durable

Overall things started on a good note but then slowly I started facings issues with the drive. Some of my folders are not accessible intermittently. Even copying is slow. Overall, I would not recommend a WD. My next drive would probably be a Seagate or a Transcend.

Everything good.

Everything good. When I bought this drive price was too low only 2600.rupees.packaging was not so good. Also the drive has shiny polished exterior so it gets scratched by invisible tiny particles.Not as fast as it is supposed to be even after i connect to usb 3 port.

Nice Portable product - serves the purpose it is meant for..

Have been using this external hard disk since the last year or so and loving it.. Hard disks are meant to be delicate and should always be used with caution.. On the second day of delivery itself, I got a cushioned cover separately to carry it while I travel.. 500 GB was more than enough for me, buy… (View complete review)

Excellent Value for money.

I am using this for the past two years. Never gave any problem. I have not been able to test USB3 transfer speed yet. But it gives write speed of 20 MB/sec when I connect it to my old Laptop which has USB2 only.
My laptop's original harddisk is also Western Digital make, and it ha…

Never buy WD

Flipkart is always the best when it comes to customer viewpoint. But WD, never. This passport crashed in the 7th month and the service center never responds. They never pick the call. The courier person never came to pick the parcel.
AFL couriers also never responds to calls.
Even after 2 months from registring the complaint, i am waiting for the response

Good Product

I got my order in 3 days. The speed that I am getting while copying is around 18 mbps and I have not used 3.0. I am satisfied with this external Hard Drive. Let's see how reliable it comes out to be..After some research on internet I got convinced to buy WD instead of seagate. The look and size of this drive is comparatively smaller than seagate. It actually comes in your Shirt Pocket.

Good Product Good flipkart service

I got this for 2550/- in September...surprisingly the price is now increased......excellent TAT & price from flipkart

Pros
Sturdy
Works well on 2.0 & fast on 3.0 USB
I got it registered for 3 year directly from WD website from my purchase date.
I travel with it every day which is kept in the bag with numerous shocks to it throughout the day..but it works great

Cons
Glossy finish attracts scratches but its ok

A year with this HDD.

I bought this one on June 2012. WD is one of the known brands for external HDD. What intrigued me was the USB 3.0 port and that is why I bought this( that and the brand name of course.) Physically, it was very fast but I always had the feeling that the port didn't "fit in properly" in the USB 2.0 ports in my laptop and the connecting wire is really short and inflexible which doesn't help everyone.
I had some problem with the HDD when a virus unknowingly attacked it. So i tried to format it and still had problems. WIth all my data lost, I contacted WD online support and they directed me t…

Device: Not Trustworthy, Service & Support: Very Poor

I have bought this HDD on Sep 26th,2011 and it cost me Rs. 2644.
For nest 8 months it has given me satisfactory performance with read speed in the range of 50-60 MBps.

But to my shear dilemma, I found a couple of days ago that either the HDD is not being recognized most of the time or the read-write speed is astonishingly slow (in few KBps!).

The worst thing is that the warranty-support site of WD (http://bit.ly/ExqjS) is under maintenance since ages.

See:

I lost whole of the 500 GB data and still to get any response or replacement from WD.

Superb Hard disk

I ordered this product 2 months ago. Even though i am from a small town, i got my order in just 3 days. Superb packing and shipping from Flipkart. The hard disk is really working fine. The data transfer is faster with USB 3.0. The body is very shinning and can easily get scratches. The cable connecting the hard disk and usb port is small. So you need to keep it very closer to the usb port. Overall a good hard disk to have as spare.

Outstanding perforrmance and features.

Western Digital Essential USB Passport Edition 2.5 Inch 500 GB External Hard Disk has best reputation among portable hard drives.

Performance: This drive is mainly build for high data read and write speeds as well as stability. There are no complaints about performance. Read and write speeds are too good in USB 2.0 also.

Features: WD Essential USB Passport comes with data backup and password protection softwares which are useful for business users to protect their data from theft and loss. WD SmartWare Software is unique but a normal user will find some difficulties at beginn…

Outstanding Product.....

Although i got this product earlier but forgot to write my experiences,placed an order for this product on 14th sept but got delivered bit late on 19th sept.Packaging was excellent i.e the 3 layered packing,light weight & compact in manner.Feels good to have in your hand just like carrying a pocket dictionary.Amazed by the price rate almost less than 2.7k which is 600-700 bugs less then the market price,though now they have hiked the price.But hats off to flipkart,looking forward to order some more stuffs in near future.
