      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 ...

      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 got it registered for 3 year directly from WD website from my purchase date.
      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.

      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.
      I had some problem with the HDD when a virus unknowingly attacked it. So i tried to format it ...

      Device: Not Trustworthy, Service & Support: Very Poor

      I have bought this HDD on Sep 26th,2011 and it cost me Rs. 2644.
      For nest 8 months it has given me satisfactory performance with read speed in the range of 50-60 MBps.

      But to my shear dilemma, I found a couple of days ago that either the HDD is not being recognized most of the time or the read-write speed is astonishingly slow (in few KBps!).

      The worst thing is that the warranty-support site of WD (http://bit.ly/ExqjS) is under maintenance since ages.

      I lost whole of the 500 GB dat...

      Superb Hard disk

      I 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.
