Never buy WDFlipkart 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.

Good ProductI 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.

If you are careless, dont go for itThe Hard disk gets damaged with the slightest of jerks, got mine sent back a twice to WD. I`ve heard about people who have never faced a problem with it too. Its all about luck.

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.

Superb Hard diskI 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 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.
