Wish I’d read the reviews (not this ignorant nonsense) first.

Mine died in 3 years, for no reason, not moved at all.


eltorreblank says:

Can you install programs in this drive?

Alexandra Marie says:

WD is garbage!

Slide Ink says:

i clicked erase and i cannot access the hard drive now

Darth Pilsner says:

I have the exact same drive, it is a piece of shit, only works in USB 2 ports, USB 3.0 doesn’t even recognize it most of the time and when it does it only recognizes it as a USB 2.0 device not 3.0 I can’t even use it in my PC at home because my motherboard doesn’t have any 2.0 ports, Other than that though the drive works perfectly never had any other problems with it, just the USB 3.0 issue but it is still a shitty drive and I am never going to buy another external drive from WD ever.

Denish Limbu says:

the write speed is a bit disappointing but the read speed is impressive……
my verbatim stays cool through excessive but the WD heats up & pretty quick.
the connector port on the hard disk is sturdy though and the indicator light is helpfull

Lithium Shadow says:

Nice. I’ve been looking for one for my YouTube channel this should do nicely. Thanks!

Dr. Zoidberg says:

I can vouch for the texture. One of my guilty pleasures is rubbing it against my gorgeous face.

Uncle Kenta says:

WARNING to those with Western Digital external hard drives!! I just learned the hard ways. On the WD My Book Elite external hard drive I used for my backups, the little micro USB port on it snapped right off the circuit board!!! I thought, no prob. I cracked open the enclosure, (yes it was already out of warranty) removed the bare hard drive, connected the bare drive to my computer directly via SATA and power cable. And guess what? I could NOT see any data on the drive. OS said the drive was unallocated, as if it had no partition. The Western Digital SATA to USB controller board used on their external hard drives is designed so you can’t use the bare hard drive in any other enclosure, or in any computer. I could not find replacement parts or any other solution. Disaster! BEWARE if you use Western Digital external hard drives, you are screwed if the USB port or the enclosure breaks. Google it, this same problem has happened to countless others. I had to have the USB port soldered back on, and then had to use data recovery software to get my data back off that drive. My solution to broken a USB port: had it soldered back on, and used Wondershare Data Recovery software to retrieve my files.

Waner says:

Is this working with windows 10?

AnimeFreak says:

does this have a encrypted security lock? where you can only access it by typing in a password?

Classic Wrestling Content says:

I hold all of my pirated movies on my 2tb passport

Slide Ink says:

Skrilla games says:

Can I use it for my ps4

des m8 says:

Am I able to run PC games on this. I have a 2tb.

Dominic Biron says:

It short circuit after less than 18 months, destroyed my laptop motherboard and is unusable. Recovering my 800GB of HD videos will cost more than 1000$.
Don’t ever trust planned obsolescence products with your valuable data.

harold witham says:

Enrique Soto says:

ProfessorDame says:

Jesús Armando Maytorena says:

This HDD would be compatible with the new Playstation 4 Firmware 4.50?

Zachariah Frankenstein says:

can you use this for your ps4? i dont want to have to replace the internal hard drive and lose any progress on my games and lose the extra 500GB of memory either. could i plug this in and expand it? also, using this on my HP laptop, would this improve the hardrive speed if my initial hardrive is at 1TB?

Kenny Daddy says:

My hard drive is transferring files at around 16 mb/sec 🙁 Someone please help! This cant be right.

Brean Targaryen says:


Really Just Me says:

I’ve heard a lot of people say it stopped working for them i just got it and I’m nervous. Also why does the light keep blinking on it even when the console is off?

Anthony Le says:

Does using a hard drive that is made for Windows on a Mac compromise the hard drive’s performance (speed)? Plz answer.

felix hernandez says:

It kills my asus t100 tablet

Battery wise

I use it for steam games no complaints other than the fact that I can’t plug it to the wall so that my tablet/pc can hold battery

Remember the asus is small

.. Really good for a bigger pc or desktop

.. Keep in mind I have my Xbox 360 wired controller connected also

Redwood Tree says:

Im having some Issues with My Passport Ultra.
I have a WD Elements 2 tb and I was trying to copy and paste 1tb to My Passport Ultra but it wont do nothing. Its only letting transfer 50gb at a time. Is there a work around. ?
