Really good product !

Hello Guys, I have ordered this device via Snapdeal and received in 4 days! The product is nice and handy. Below are my observations about this product. 1) Device is really small, handy and (almost) noiseless --> Wonderful! 2) Actual available storage is 1.81 TB (approx. 1853.44 GB) --> Around 194.56 GB Loss :( But its OK 3) Software is easy to install. But need little techie knowledge to use. (not 100% user friendly) --> Doesn't Matter much as we can learn it! 4) When HDD is connected, windows takes much time to search the drivers --> Issue of Windows ?? 4) It took approx. 5 Hrs 45 Mins to transfer 225GB data via USB 2 port. --> In my sense its good speed for USB2! 5) Transfer cable is too shoft --> Bigger is better! but is not here... Note that, I have connected this HDD to laptop having below configuration. Processor - 2GHz Core2Duo OS - Windows Vista Home Premium RAM - DDR2 3GB USB version - 2 But, overall I am very happy with this product and would definitely recommend it to all my friends.

WD wins ovr SEAGATE or BUFFALO or anyotr

ok !! firstly the big cunfusion that arrives in INDIAN customers after filtering out other brands for the same segment drives is SEAGATE and this WD !! guys the shop keeper suggests seagate cz its waranty procedure is easier in cities other tahn metros ! i have used both any day WD is better this particualt passport is actually wallet sized (not bluffing.......) thin sleek fast comes with a faily long data cable around 13 inches quite in working has a backup software inside !! buffalo ministation is also a good ALTERNATIVE but this is better in RW speeds ! go for this i hv used seagate and buffalo and this now i m using ! certainly better ! snapdeal is cheaper than flipkart on this model plus a freebie !

My 2nd review.

Ok this is my 2nd review for this product after a hard hit. Please beware of the data cable that is being provided with this product. If it is as thick as the "Monitor to CPU" wire, then you are in serious trouble. Initially I was provided with one such usb 3.0 cable which got disconnected on even a feather touch. Most of the time this will be annoying. After 3 months of usage, while transferring data from my HDD to a pendrive, due to a very very slight disturbance, the HDD got disconnected. That's it. The rest of the problem are as follows: i) Your HDD gets corrupted ii) Your recycle bin in ur HDD gets corrupted. iii) Sectors get damaged in ur HDD. iv) Data loss After downloading n number of softwares/utilities for Hard disk and going through so many forums, I fixed the missing sectors (not the damaged ones) in the HDD and made it detectable in the PC. As a result of this I lost over 150 GB of personal data out of 500 GB and took backup and formatted the drive. Formatting the drive will only make your drive re-usable but the bad sectors will still be present. Since the warranty was for 3 years, I reached the WD hotline for replacement and got it replaced and this time I got a good and decent thin data cable. Original HDD is a "Product of Thailand" and the one replaced is "Recertified in Malaysia". One major drawback is the replaced WD harddrive has got only 90 days of warranty. Be careful when u use the HDD and keep the surrounding clear without any disturbance. Datas once lost, gone forever. My rating this time will be 4.

I would buy this product again and again

the cheapest wd 1tb hard drive available on the net! For everything else it is an awesome product by WD! No power cord required just plug and play! If you are looking for 2 tb I suggest you dont cuz you can have 2 of these at the same time at similar pricing! Plus 2 Tb will always have a powercord which is prone to failure if you dont have UPS system - also we have many electricity fluctuations which can spoil any 2 tb hard drive Best option buy WD 1tb!

Below is the speed which I got Data Transfer Rate ---------+----------------+----------------------+ Port | Claimed by site| Speed which I got | | and user manual| | --------------------------+----------------------+ :USB 2.0:| Up to 480Mbps | Up to 29 Mbps | :USB 3.0:| Up to 5Gbps | Up to 58 Mbps | --------------------------+----------------------+

Great service from Sn, Wonderful Product

No problem with the service from Snapdeal. Got delivered before the delivery date. No problem with the product. Even with my USB 2.0 laptop, it starts with a speed of around 60 Mbps. Then keeps on reducing and finaly becomes stable between 20 to 30 Mbps depending on the type of files i am copying.

This is my second HDD, the first one being WD 500 GB which i bought from the local market. Pros : Is light weight, ample space (of course it is 1024 GB out of which approx 940 GB is usable) Cons : none Bottomline : If you need ample space. Do get it soon.
