You don't really appreciate the size of this 2tb usb3 external drive until you receive it...it really is quite portable, handy and light.
This replaces a 320gb usb3 drive, and is only marginally bigger in size, but massively bigger capacity wise.
Very happy :o)
Just wish they'd give you a longer usb cable...that would make it perfect

These are a great little hard drive! Love em got three now, got seagate as well but these are the best. Had to scan the seagate ones a couple of times before I could use them but these give me no trouble.

With the Aussie Dollar now dropping these devices are rising in cost big time in this country. I saved about $30 (perhaps 15 pounds) buying this from the U.K. and paying overseas postage.

This item holds 1.81 Terra bytes (1.81 million mega-bytes) of data, so are a great way to back up your DVds, or PC stuff.

I now use this to back up my PC automatically making back-iups practical for the first time ever. In the floppy disk days I have to sit at the PC for 12 hours changing disks for each back-up. Then with DVDs I was caught by the need to burn multi-sessions (wasted many disks before working out that you cannot burn more than 35 minutes in a single session; so to fill a full DVD you have to set up 3 or 4 sessions), and took about 3 to 4 days to do a complete backup! Which explains why when my last hard drive crashed I lost 2-years of downloads (had not been able to bring myself to go through the hell of doing a complete backup in that time).

With this though, just set Nero (or some other burning software) to do an auto back-up every few days and you barely notice when its backing up. And certainly don't have to devote a day or 4 of your precious time on each backup. This is the way to go for sure!

A wonderful product for any PC user!

I have tested a range of different external hard drive types for our client's server requirements. This is now the drive we use for all Windows based servers.

At this time, we can confirm that this hard drive works for the following:

Server operating systems:
- Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2008
- Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2011

Windows operating systems:
- Windows XP Pro
- Windows 7 home
- Windows 7 Pro
- Windows 7 Ultimate
- Windows 8 Pro
- Windows 8.1 Pro

I test that all backups are working for our client's every 2-3 months (restoration to a test server). The test server that we use is of a different hardware -configuration to client servers - I can confirm that a bare metal restore works correctly with this external hard drive.

Have been using this little drive for about 2 months now..........daily use....in and out of my computer and on SmartBoards all day long.......has proved fast and reliable.......but don't want to tempt fate since my experience with little hard drives has not been so good.........still up to now it has been brilliant................

Good products but why are WD importers so greedy. For the past 30 years they have used a 1:1 rate of exchange of US dollar to £ sterling. EG. an item costing $60.0 in USA will sell for £60.0 in the UK - rip off Britain - you bet!!!

I am not very good using computers, that is why I bought this passport to keep my files safe and does the job. It is easy to set up and transfer files. There are so many things experts can do it with it, but for me it is a storage. It is small and thin and nice colour. I loved it. If I want to buy an other one definitely I will chose this one again in the future.

It's like the TARDIS - tiny on the outside and huge on the inside! And it is USB (3) powered and I was a poser and bought the lovely blue painted one :-) I am so glad that I got rid of my 2 'half-brick' desktop, mains-powered hard disks and replaced both with this tiny marvel. Highly recommended.
