WD My Passport

This is not a review.. I just wanted to clarify why this hard disk shows 465GB instead of 500GB. When referring to drive's capacity:
1GB = 1 billion Bytes
1TB = 1 trillion Bytes
Our Computer System uses a different standard of measurement..
1KB = 1024B instead of 1000B
Similarly
1MB = 1024KB = 1048000B
1GB = 1024MB = 1073741824B
But according to hard drive standards 1GB = 1000000000B
Hence the actual size gets reduced by a factor of 1.0737
Therefore size shown = 500 divided by 1.0737 = 465 GB

Same is the reason why
4.7GB DVD shows a space of 4.37GB
8GB memory card shows 7.45GB
So Don't com...

So Don't complain if you get 35GB less space!!

Great product............satisfactory service....!!!

Ordered it on 23.09.12 got it on 29.09...........that's slow from Flipkart....HDD is cute though , Got the colour that's displayed and it's working perfectly.
I preferred WD over Seagate because I had prblms with my previous two Seagate HDDs , they just crashed for no reason , and Seagate's after sales service is a nightmare . I went to Nehru Place for their repair but the bu**holes there said that they won't accept them without their original packaging .............
Shitty service for awry product........!!!

Superfast service from Flipkart. Worthy Purchase !

I booked this hard disk on 1 September in the night and to my surprise the hard disk was delivered to my home by 3 September in the morning. Really super speed. Regarding the hard disk, this is the most wonderful hard disk I have ever seen. The sleek design and the compactness plus the stylish looks and the reliability of WD has been good. So overall i's pretty satisfied with the purchase.

Awesome!

Bought this during offer time so got it for less. It's fast and perfect in size. Look is also super-cool. When it comes to speed, i have tested it with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. Of Course one won't get 5Gb/sec, it is just for saying, but i did get around 1Gb/sec. Nice product at this range. Lil expensive for a 500GB HDD, but still worth.

Perfect Product. Should have given some safety pouch/cover/case

Totally satisfied with this product. worth buying. shell some extra bucks and buy 1TB, instead. The size really fits in your bag.
However, it would be great, if they would have provided with some safety case. MUST NEEDED....
5 Star if they would have provided. cause its bit concern if anything hits, or if it falls.

No Complaints- Good, as Usual from WD

Bought this for my 'technologically-challenged' sister! If she has no complaints about it, that means it's doing its job flawlessly. Looks kind of fancy. Good product altogether. (View complete review)
