        Comments about WD My Passport 1.5TB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

        I bought this WD 1.5 TB portable hard drive (USB 3.0) for just 80 dollars. Drive works perfect (have had for about 10 months). The warranty is excellent (2 years). Easily fits in your pocket (even with the USB 3.0 cable, which is all you need to use the hard drive). Was using it by USB 2 connection until I upgraded my PC to USB 3.0 ports. At the beginning I was getting USB 2 speeds even tough I was using the USB 3.0 hard drive, cable and ports... After some research, I found that updating the WD firmware on the hard drive would help. And it was right: now I get data transfers of 100-150 MegaBytesPerSecond for around 8 seconds (MB, not mb -megabits) which is not bad considering this hard drive is a 5400 rpm (internal drive). It won't hold that speed all the time (it slows down to 45-75 MBPS for the remaining time of data transfer). If you're transferring 1GB - 1.3GB's of data, it will finish at around 13 seconds overall (while USB 2.0 always takes around 50-60 seconds). So, if you're copying several 1GB files, it's better to do it 1 by 1 (ie: if you copy 10GB in several files, it will take a long time since the 100+ MBPS will last only 8 seconds). Will update review after trying the Hard Drive with a USB 3.0 Y-cable to Micro-B (which uses 1 USB 3.0 port for data, and 1 USB 2 or 3.0 port for power on 1 end, and Micro-B connector at the other end for hard drive).

        I find it so convenient to move large files from computer to computer. I can carry it in my laptop computer case with ease. I can use it as easily as a thumbdrive.

          Comments about WD My Passport 1.5TB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

          Using primarily to do laptop back-ups, seems to work well so far, hope not to ever have to use it to retrieve lost files (that will be the real test). Also plan to save individual photo files in separate folder so the large capacity should work fine. Bought primarily based on satisfaction with older WD external HD

          I have a small IT Tech business, repairing, installing PC's, MAC's and Networks. I use it to carry all my Utilities, test tools, client information and recovered backups. I love the feature where it can be set up with a secure password before allowing the data to be used. It keeps my clients data secure should it ever be lost or stolen.

            I like my new WD My Passport 1.5TB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black) by Western Digital. it is light and easy to carry around. The installation is easy to follow. It has plenty of capacity for my laptop backup. I highly recommend it to my friends and family. I bought it on sale and it is super, as I was planning to buy an 1TB passport external hard drive, and this only costs $10 more. I had an older MY passport 350MB external drive for 4 years and it is still running well and I will use it as another backup drive for my key documents.
