The drive itself is very compact and at the time of purchase 2 TB was the largest size you could get in a portable drive (I believe it's upto 3 TB and perhaps ever 4 TB now) and the colours allow for personalisation (or to differentiate drives if you have several like me). The drive uses a proprietry connection at the drive end and a standard USB-A connection at the other. I believe that the drive inside also uses a proprietry conenction meaning those hoping to use the drive in a laptop or games console will be out of luck. All my equipment is USB 2.0 so I can't comment on the read/write speeds, but I tend to leave the drives to do differential backups overnight. No issues formatting for Mac or NAS. The oldest drive is getting on for two years now with no issues.
Also it is made by Western Digital and whilst there are not that many HD manufacturers any more WD have been absolutely superb with and returns and customer support when I have needed them. This to me is worth a small price difference knowing that I have that level of support if needed.
In fact I do tend to navigate towards their drives for that very reason. I do have cheaper and other brands but I do prefer WD.
This drive is not particularly noisy and will transfer at excellent speeds on small or large files.
Great drive and thoroughly recommended.

Then one day it wouldn't find anything on the USB which broke me.
Lesson learnt: I now purchase duplicate hard drives so I have a back up.Read more
