Experience: 8 Months
Small, good price
I needed a small usb drive to transport with me. I think this drive is probably the smallest USB3 drive around.

Experience: 9 Weeks
 Verified Owner
a little larger capacity would have been nice
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

Experience: 7 Weeks

-great price ($70)
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!

Experience: 2 Months

Good storage for the price.
Good build quality
no case included
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.

Experience: 90 Days

perfect and fast
i own 5 of these , no problems at all perfect !!!

Experience: 6 Months
tons of space
bit slow
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.

Experience: 4 Weeks
spacious and fast
I bought this to replace my dead hard drive, works fine. You also get lots of space to work with, and its pretty cheap as well.

Experience: 3 Months

Just like all other WD products, great quality for the price.

Experience: 45 Days

Fast (60 mb/s transfer rate), Included software is full of features
Using two drives for backup, 12 GB is transferred in less than 10 minutes. The included software has a lot of features to monitor and maintain each drive.
