couldn’t the connectivity issue be resolved by picking up a USB 3.1 to type C cable? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UUBQ710/ref=pd_cp_107_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=8P8NRKAR9NBSVF2RN0H1

Is it possible to change the 2,5″ HDD inside respectively opening the case easily without destroying it?

Hmm, getting an Ultra version instead, maybe the Metal one. 3 years warranty and better looks.

James He says:

Remember in the old days when 8 terabytes costed 299.99 dollars?

Evelyn Garcia says:

I bought the 2TB My Passport today and when I plugged it into my computer, I got a pop-up window saying “the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable”. I wasn’t able to transfer anything to the hard drive because the same window kept popping up. I tried using Chkdsk command in command prompt but that didn’t work. I ended up having to format the drive and install the applications that were supposed to come on the drive, such as WD Security, from the website which was a pain since it took me a while to find everything. Besides going through all of this, the hard drive doesn’t seem too bad. It transferred all of my photos, which were shot in RAW format, pretty quickly. I’m not too sure whether I trust the drive enough to use it as my main storage because of what I went through at the beginning. Has anyone else had this issue though? If so, has this happened again after already having transferred files to the drive?

jalene150 says:

Looks like a bootleg version of the Xbox one.

Clubbeats97 says:

then you find out they designed it like that so Xbox one customers will buy it for the external storage just because it looks like it

Hi Mr. Ngo, can you please do a review of raid drives? If you already have done one could you please post the link?

Alexander Cooper says:

Ok will someone tell me. Should I get this one for my Xbox one s? Or should I get the old one?

FiscalRangersFlorida says:

Very limited review. No benchmarks, no review of comment ratings on Amazon or NewEgg which are worse than the prior models. It seems both Seagate and WD have downgraded technology and the ratings have fallen due to early failures. This should have analyzed what changed in the tech that led to lower quality (and prices).

brome says:

This guy is amazing, I really enjoyed the videos where he is present.

MasterJP28 says:

Dong is a living legend.
