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 good buy if we calculate it at price per GB... when compared to 320Gb or 1 Tb..
Comes with WD software which has a backup software ... and if u register your product online they do take the warranty from the date of manufacturing and if u attach the copy of bill of purchase then from that day and the warranty is online warranty so give u relief that you don't have to run to the dealer for the product warranty in case any problems occurs..
finally a good buy i would say..

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 great buy for the price (I got it for 2800/-) and would surely recommend it to people :)

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 value for money product and excellent service by flipkart

Awesome service Excellent product

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 portable drive. After your purchase don't forget to register your product of warranty in the WD website. The price here is very competitive compared to the market price in Chennai (around Rs. 350-400 less).
