4 out of 5 eggsIts a hard drive!

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BRD-NESN Red

Pros: Not a whole lot to say about this. When you plug it in, it works! It comes with USB 3.0, but the spindle speed isn't hardly fast enough to take advantage of it. For the price, though, you can't go wrong. Its a nicely packaged drive with the confidence of Western Digital to back it up.

Cons: It doesn't make me breakfast in the mornings!

Really, you get what you pay for here. Its not crazy fast, but it works. I'm not a big fan of the weird looking input plug on it, but it works with a standard micro USB cable (if you're okay with "just" USB 2.0 speeds.)

It does come loaded with a bunch of WD bloatware on the drive. A simple format will fix this, if you please. In my experience, the WD backup software was actually somewhat helpful.

Other Thoughts: I gave this as a gift several months ago and haven't heard a single complaint yet. The person who received it uses the drive every day; taking it from home to work and back and using it at both locations. Her last WD drive lasted 4 1/2 years, which is pretty good for an external drive (in my opinion).

The bottom line: you might be able to get one cheaper, and you might be able to get one better looking, but this is a nice middle-of-the-road offering that's sure to live up to WD's industry leading durability and longevity at a decent price.

5 out of 5 eggsWD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 Red External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BRD-NESN

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BRD-NESN Red

Pros: Very fast and reliable. I got this for my girlfriends photography business. She can store a lot of pictures on this and take it with her anywhere. I transferred pictures from an old IDE 5400 rpm 120GB external drive to this one using USB 3.0 on the Passport and it was quick, it was slowed by the IDE drive but it is amazing. My girlfriend downloaded pictures from her SD card to the Passport and it was amazingly fast.

Cons: Only one I have is the USB cable is really short.

Other Thoughts: I was highly impressed with Newegg and WD Passport.

1 out of 5 eggsIost data twice

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BRD-NESN Red

Pros: Nice compact size
Nice Color
USB 3.0
Price

Cons: I always trusted WD products, but this HD has failed me. I have lost data twice. The first time, I couldn't access the drive at all. I tried to use the repair tools, but didn't work. I ended up formatting the drive. The second time was the worse. After I partitioned the drive in two, I used one partition for movies and the other for virtual machines (school work). While working in the virtual machines, the HD just stop working, and no matter what I did, I couldn't access the data anymore. I had to format the drive once again. I lost a lot of work. This HD has disappointed me, and now, I just don't know what I can used for.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BRD-NESN Red

Pros: Got this for a travel HDD but find I use it as much at home as on the road it is a very good drive with 1TB space plenty for my needs have it partitioned into 4 logical drives 2 are for windows 7 images one for laptop other for desktop one for minor data storage and one for important stuff the stuff that I have backed up on more than one source and media type since can't replace most of it.I Find it is fast enough for my needs and price was good considering it was on sale when bought it. See Other Thoughts for speed test results. I do not find the cable to be flimsy at all like most smaller cable ends you just need to take care not to leave it on floor where you run over it with chair wheels, Lord knows I have done that enough to my phone charger cables

Cons: none

1 out of 5 eggsAlienware m17x r4

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BRD-NESN Red

Pros: None, dont buy wd products if you own an alienware m17x r4 they wont stay connected and just make you angry at your laptop that cost 3,000$

Cons: This is the second 3.0 external i have bought and will not stay connected due to the problem with the hdd controller wd uses, but it works well in other systems fine just not my expensive laptop and there is alot of ppl with the same problem.

Other Thoughts: I should have went with a different brand and not stuck with my love for wd products sometimes you need to buy something different to make things work proper... every product i have bought from newegg has never made more more angry then this... nothing worse then not being able to back up your important files

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent - for PART of the job

This review is from: WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBBEP0010BRD-NESN Red

Pros: Very fast. Backup of 16GB took a few minutes. CrystalDiskMark gives it scores in the same league as a SATA III drive, especially on sequential tasks (which a backup is).
Small, light, but appears to be well-made. Even has little rubberized feet so it won't scratch.
Software checks for updates to itself, AND to the firmware on the drive. Update procedure is manual, but not difficult.
The biggest pro is the automatic versioning. If you are a writer or a coder, you will LOVE this feature, which will easily let you roll back changes. Tests I ran showed changes being picked up and backed up immediately. If I wanted a prior version, I could choose based on timestamp when selecting the file.
Does not noticeably slow down the system.

Cons: The cord is very short. It's standard though, so you could buy a longer one.
Software does not auto-install; the quickstart guide implies it does, but it does not. It's easy enough to install it manually.
[Automatically] backs up only one drive at a time; you must manually repeat the process for each one. Not a big deal if you have just one data drive.
This software will NOT restore a dead drive onto a new one. There is no provision or ability to create rescue media or perform image backups with the included software.
Once installed, the software would not allow my systems (one Intel, one AMD) to sleep, even if the drive were disconnected. The GPU would idle, but mouse, keyboard, and fans remained powered up, and the system remained responsive. This may or may not be an issue.

Other Thoughts: I tested this on two systems, one Intel and one AMD. There were no differences.
The included software is mostly good. If you make frequent changes to files, but might want to recover one or more previous versions, buy this drive; you're done. It's small, light, and fast. It is NOT a complete backup solution though, as it has no provision to recover a dead system, just its data. It does that very well though, and won't make you wait. I think its anomalies merit loss of an egg, because it isn't perfect, and you cannot rely on it to be your sole means of backup. Coupled with an image backup program though, it should allow you to restore an entire system.
