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.

First of all thanks to Flipkart for delivering the product within 24 hrs..as it was not promised but super fast delivery i must say...ordered on 11 july around 4 pm and got it deliverd on 12 july arnd 12 pm..

It's Great!

I just received my WD hard disk. To begin with the packing and delivery time from flipkart was great as always :) many thanks and thumbs up to flipkart for that!

The HD is actually the size of an original passport and I was surprised at how light the delivery box felt when I received it, that's how light the hard disk is. Very sleek, compact and light...is giving me a good 465 GB free space and the data transfer rate is neat as per the USB 2.0 speed.The warranty paper is in there, user manual has been given too...I don't see myself having any problems with this lovely piece.

I'd say its a gr

Great Value

Excellent packaging and delivery service by Flipkart, and the status of the product was regularly updated. Delivered withing 2 days of order and good customer service.
About the HD now-
PROs-
Great value for money @ just Rs.2550 cheapest price as of now.
As expected WD is the best in storage devices, has provided backup software and 3 year on-site warranty in India (register the product online)
Better than other brands in the segment, small in size and light in weight, easy to use.
CONs-
Surface is glossy and hence vulnerable to scratches, should have provided a tough case.
Otherwise great val

Also the link provided for the status of delivery was updated promptly. Packing was also awesome. Kudos team, way to go.

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

Must Buy

The MRP of this HDD is Rs. 4,999 so it is available for almost 50% discount. So it's a great deal on Flipkart.

This is a super cool External Hard Drive to buy. It comes with WD Smartware software that lets you take backup of your HDD. The software facilitates encryption password for the protection of your data.

Finally the thing I loved about is the future proof. The amazing thing about this drive it supports USB 3.0, which means higher data transfer rates (provided your machine has USB 3.0 ports). I wasn't able to find any USB 3.0 drive below Rs. 3000 which is by Iomega.

Also, it comes

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.

If you are careless, dont go for it

The 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.
