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…

Super drive

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..
Abt product now.
Super light and amazing fast speed when uploading/downloading on usb 2.0... copied arnd 21 gb of movies in just 17mins ...havn't used it yet in usb 3.0 yet...
physically the product is too lite and look amazing in black ..the surface is smooth but does attracts fingerprints... size is actually just like an passport..and at the price of Rs2700 for 500Gb...its actually a g

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

I appreciate the awesome customer service provided by flipkart. Placing the order and the delivery were seamless & without any glitches. I had ordered for a Portable WD passport essential 500 GB hard disk on 15th of July & received the product within 24 hrs from the time of placing the order. Also the link provided for the status of delivery was updated promptly. Packing was also awesome. Kudos team, way to go.

I am very satisfied to have chosen WD passport essential, it is a stylish, great product combined with excellent performance. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for an port

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.

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 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

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.
