I am not very comuter savy! so I was very pleased when I was able to set this up and make it work after reading the short intoduction. It backed up my whole system in about 20 min. and going forward it shoud do it much faster as it only updates changes. The drive is quite portable and comes with a case that fits the unit and the usb. The unit got only luke warm and seems to be built solidly. Great peace of mind to know that I don't have to worry about losing my business documents if I crash. You have to tell it you are unpluging it but other than that it is idiot proof.

I got this as a gift. Connected it and it immediately backed up my computer. However, then something went wrong and could not get it to load again even to reinstall the software. After calling HP support & trying this several times, I had to return it to the store and exchanged for another WD product.

The concept of the product is good, I just couldn't get it to work.

    Comments about HP SimpleSave 500GB Portable Hard Drive:

    Other than the fact that it's software doesn't include two-way sync, it's the run-of-the-mill pocket external hard drive. It's 500GB, it works, it hasn't failed me yet. The software installed makes it great for hooking up to your computer, leaving it there, and keeping it backed up, but since that's the case, what need is there to make it pocket sized and extremely portable.

          Comments about HP SimpleSave 500GB Portable Hard Drive:

          After having my less than 1 year laptop crash twice, decided I should have a backup running in the background all the time and this was it. So easy and fast to set up to automatically backup.
