Customer Reviews:

  • Great value for this amount of portable storage
    Hard to believe there could be so much storage in something only slightly larger than a deck of cards (and not even as thick) but it's true. The transfer rate could be faster but for $79 I am not going to complain too much!...more info
  • Just what I was looking for

  • Western Digiital External USB 320 GB Drive
    I love these Western Digital drives. Plug in the USB cable and you are ready to go.

  • Disappointed this time
    I bought this to upgrade from a Western Digital 250 GB portable hard drive that I've had for a year and a half and had very little trouble with. I had that drive attached with Velcro to the top of my laptop, and it worked great (much safer than having it bang around in my travel bag separately). It eventually got touchy about the cable connection; sometimes disconnecting when the cable is bumped. (Manufacturers: please make a snap-in mini-USB connector instead of letting the contacts take the abuse.)

    However, this new drive is not reliable. It sometimes can't be found by Windows XP, and I have to disconnect it and reconnect it for it to be recognized. It's also a bit noisier than the previous one, which together make me suspicious that it's a bad drive that will fail on me at any time. As a result, I constantly back up to the old drive, which I had intended to use as an archive (and do occasional backups of new files to an external drive; my important work is done on the laptop drive and backed up daily to the portable drive). But since the old drive is only half the size, that won't last.

    I will probably buy another portable drive from a different manufacturer to try to get one that I feel I can trust. Then I'll just use this as a portable backup drive that I'll occasionally sync. Not completely worthless, but certainly disappointing....more info
  • Great Product
    This is a great product. I purchased it mainly to back up my files and hold the bulk of my media files. I've freed up a lot of space on my laptop.

    The drive is quiet. And, has quick access to my files.

    I'm very happy with the product thus far....more info
  • Perfect
    I brought this for a trip overseas, its small and doesn't require it's own power supply. It works on both a Mac and PC, just plug it in and there it is....more info
  • Good item for $$, Poor sinc software
    This is a good deal for the dollar. It is very portable and built well. The only major flaw is that the sinc software crashes and shuts down frequently. ...more info
  • Compact and Portable WD Passport
    I like the fact this product is so slim, and versatile, portable and easy to set up and carry. I own the old My book also, which is good but HUGE. So the My Passport version is easier to place on my desk to connect to my computer, and also has 350 GB, which is enough to storage my music, videos, movies. Great the fact this great product is portable, so I can carry all my stuff in that. Beautiful design, looks like made by apple....more info

  • Very good, as advertised...
    My primary use of WD External hard drive is to hold my music library. I had a little trouble transfering my library from my computer to the WD, but eventually figured it out. The program could be a little more user-friendly, but no big deal.

    A very good product!...more info

    This is a great product. I can backup my entire computer no matter where I am. I have a card rubber "skin" (case) for protection so I take it with me when I travel. Very easy software to setup and use. 5 stars!...more info
  • Good & cheap option
    It's a money worth and really reliable portable hard drive. I had seen it in many stores and I hesitated if it was durable and reliable but after seen the reviews I decided to buy it and I don't have any claim at all so far....more info
  • Works with MacBook's Time Machine
    The Passport works with my easily with MacBook. I didn't even have to reformat the Passport. I use Time Machine to backup my MacBook's disk drive about once a week. After a few weeks, it's so far, so good....more info
  • Durable Portable Harddrive
    Just bought this for my husband who was mainly interested in backing up his e-mail from Outlook. I bought this brand because I'd bought basically the same one, with a smaller capacity, about two years ago for my son. My son is a college student who needed a harddrive for his music, videos etc. and who loved the drive. It has run beautifully and held up well. With the capacity, usb plug-in cord, it's a great value for the price. ...more info
  • My choice is always Western Digital for harddrives
    I have always used Western Digital when purchasing a harddrive for either internal or external use. This drive is compact, starts right up, no guessing on what's it going to do and has plenty of space for my needs. The USB cord is actually long enough to be out of my way. ...more info

  • _
    Works exactly like it should. Tons of space for the price. Also, the drive is compact and does not require a power supply. This makes it more convenient to use than a tradition external hard drive....more info
  • So far, so good.
    I purchased this drive for the purpose of transporting large quantities of files for access between work sites. It's fast and so far very reliable. Other features include a simple connectivity light, and flashing data transfer light (one is the same).
    Here's a technical note: if at first the drive isn't recognized by your desktop PC's front panel (wired) USB ports, try the ones in back that are part of the motherboard itself. Sometimes front panel USB ports--and some on older laptops (which can be wired as well)--lack the power to run the drive.
    Good luck, this drive will most likely suit your needs....more info
  • Product not delivered within posted guidelines
    Not yet received although overdue. Have emailed seller. This was not delivered within promised timeframe and I am concerned about that...more info
  • Good stuff
    It is my second external HD from WD and both work perfectly with my Mac. ...more info
  • Mostly OK
    Device works fine with two laptops, but has a problem on the PC--a Dell XPS420 w/ RAID 1 and Vista SP2. It will not Safely Remove, claiming some program is still running it. Disconnect it anyway, and then when reconnected it will not appear in Windows Explorer but will appear in Device Manager. Must Restart to see it again. Must be system-specific....more info
  • great stuff
    No complaints yet. Small, sleek and quiet. I suggest getting a case cause it can scratch easily. ...more info
  • Run away from it!!!!!
    Ok, so, I bought this sucker 2 years ago. Today, it started making some clicking sounds (google it and see for yourself). The problem is not with the data - it's physically damaged (and I did not drop/hit/smash it!!!).
    To retrieve my data will cost me between 600 and 900 dollars - a preliminary quote....... And I NEED that data, mind you.
    Conclusion? Better buy a solid state drive, pay waaaay more, but be safe and sleep tight at night. Ordering one for ~500 dollars right after posting this review.
    Don't be fooled by cheap "storage". This is one of those rare cases when paying more makes sense....more info
  • Luv this little gem
    I bought this to make backups of my Acer One Netbook with a SSD and ended up using it as my HD. it's small(fits in a pocket), light, fast and just plug it in and go. For the $$$ can't be beat if you need a HD or backup for any laptop or netbook....more info

    This is a great little hard drive. I use it to back up all my music and pictures. It's great to be able to take them with me where ever I go....more info
  • great product except you need special cable
    it worked fine but I had to wait for a month for WD to send a dual USB cable for it to work on my laptop. remember the HD need alot of power to run and single USB port may not provide enough power.

    WD support is not all that great...

  • western digital passport 320 gb
    great product. easy to use.

    the only issue is the estimated backup time was much longer than it actually took. it's probably related to my computer. but the initial estimate of 4 days almost made me return it. i started it and went out to dinner. when i returned the process was complete....more info
