No instructions came with the thing and I had to but another online addition for £19.99, which I wasn't old about. Not happy with it.
I have a new 1tb laptop, and bought the 500gb model before this one. Diabolical, it kept telling me it was full and I only had 176gb on my laptop at the time! Needless to say, that went straight into the bin! I have now disconnected this 1tb thing and that could quite easily go the same way.
I have contacted WD and their customer service is also diabolical
. They seem to answer emails every 2 months, after several reminders. In short, they have said they will refund what I have paid, but don't hold out much hope as they requested I emailed over all my bank and account details, iban, swift, account No. Bank address, my address. All they didn't want was my shoe size! I mailed them back telling them in no uncertain terms that I would not send this info, so pay me a cheque, by PayPal or similar. I await their outcome.

DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE IT IS UNRELIABLE!

This is the first really critical review I have made to Amazon about any of my purchases. Before buying I read the reviews on external drives and noted a number which mentioned that this drive failed after a few weeks. I wish that I had heeded their warnings. Mine failed after the 30 day period had just expired. In any case, be aware that after a drive failure there is no way to delete your information. Hence returning the drive may not be a possibility. In my case with commercially sensitive scientific information I now have a rather nice-looking but useless lump of plastic. Ouch!

Don't ignore the one-star reviews as I did.

I am a rational person who doesn't write crazy reviews. I left the UK to work in Japan for a year so converted all my DVDs, photos, music etc so I could bring them with me. 5 months later the drive suddenly started doing the 'click of death'. I tried everything to recover my data. Yes, it is still in warranty but now I'm in a different country and a £50 refund isn't going to help me replace those 600GB. I really wouldn't buy this drive.

... everytime I switch off the computer or go to hibernate, the memory is emptied. I expected to turn the passport on and forget about it until the time my computer gave up the ghost and died. Then all my data would be saved. With this unit it is not the case. Talked to "Support" because it's impossible to email, re-saved all my data and today it is lost again. Hopeless - including the back-up

I bought this piece of scrap plastic in march. Now the computer just can't recognize it! It seems it's broken already. Western Digital used to be a good brand, but now they just make s***. This product LOOKS nice, but it's quality is scarce.

The my passport is a very good piece of kit and gives peace of mind over a PC failure. It has a usb connection and connects very easily to apple products. When my Mac died I bought this to back up the system after a repair. Now I keep it constantly connected in case it crashes again and I can not recover. It's a good price for a sense of security

I needed a 1TB backup drive, this was rated the best at the best price and seems to be working well. Doesn't always show up on my Computer, but i just tweak the usb cable and it is back again. I have found the same problem with other makes of portable hard drives, so obviously is an industry wide problem!

when attached to my sony vaio with backup enabled in continuous mode, it is using 50% of my cpu, which in turn makes my laptop fan stay on all the time. as soon as o disable backup , cpu/fan are fine.
needless to say its now NO LONGER attached
looked on WD forums and this problem is listed by many users.............but no solutions !
tried registering with WD to get support, but registration keeps saying 'unsuccesful' despite all fields correctly input, and it doesn't highlight what the problem is !!
