Pros
Small, good price
Cons
none
Summary
I needed a small usb drive to transport with me. I think this drive is probably the smallest USB3 drive around.

Pros
Fast
Quiet
usb3
Cons
a little larger capacity would have been nice
Summary
Very nice little external hdd, got it for an ultrabook that only had an ssd and it adds the additional storage the laptop needs. It would have been nice if it had more capacity, but by the time I use the 500gb much larger drives will probably be available for the same cost

-small
-fast
-great price ($70)
Cons
-none
Summary
This is a great little drive! I purchased it for my sister (who's travels a lot) and it is perfect for her to put pictures and files on! I bought it for her because her ultrabook only has a 128GB SSD (not upgradable either), so not a terrible lot of storage space. This drive is about the same thickness as her ultrabook, and it's very light and fast, perfect for someone on the go! Not to mention that it was only $70!

Pros
Good storage for the price.
Good build quality
Cons
no case included
Summary
Fast speed with USB 3. I copy at around 60 mb/sec.
Design is nice with a mesh-like texture.

It's a really good drive and haven't had any problem with it even if i carry it a lot.

The only small con is with other western digital disk i owned they always included a small case with the disk. It's really not a big of a deal, you can buy a generic one for a couples bucks.

Would by again if I was in need of a additional storage for my computer. But I will stick with other drives if speed is a must.
