    Flawless drive for backing up boot drive and restoring my laptop to factory

    5/5 Andre L. Bell (Santa Maria, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD 500GB Black My Passport Ultra Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBWWM5000ABK-NESN [Old Model] (Personal Computers) I used this to backup my laptop before restoring to factory and then upgrading again to Windows 10. No data loss. Quiet drive. I did not use the internal software. I've never trusted proprietary backup methods. Years of failures of unretrievable data from using proprietary methods in the past has made me a bit gun shy. So my review does not include a rating of the software. My review is for the hardware itself. Flawless backup of the laptop's boot drive. Flawless recovery of the data I've tested so far.

    These keep getting better and better

    1. I've used various external HD over the years (Lacie, Western Digital, Seagate, OWC etc...). I've used the WD Passport series before and thus have "faith" in their general reliability (note: if you expect / demand that HD will never fail--> you're going to be dissapointed because it doesn't match reality). Thus, I know that these drives are well made, work well and are nicely designed etc...2. When I received this unit, I was very surprised with how WD has redesigned the unit to make it smaller, sleeker--> all in all and excellent USB powered drive. Furthermore, unlike the prior versions of the passport series, this unit now comes with "software" that is somehow integrated into the hardware (i'm not an engineer, but the bottomline is that the software is NOT independent from the harddrive; it's like "baked" into the drive)--> this I view as a very good thing because it makes the security aspect of the drive very streamlined. i'm really not explaining this software... 5/5 Harry M.

    Looks nice, too complicated to use

    2/5 Sara390 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Passport for Mac 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive (Charcoal) (Personal Computers) The My Passport is light, looks nice and has a big capacity for most people.But when you start using it--well, the system design is pretty poor. I had to resinstall the software several times when the drive locked itself and the software wouldn't properly detect it and then started crashing. I had to emailing customer service because the online guides are difficult to navigate and answers are often in geek speak. Noticed along the way that in order to disconnect the drive you are supposed to SHUT DOWN the computer. Wha? Who does that? Also noted in the online knowledge base some very snarky answers from customer service blaming users for not following the complicated directions for using the drive. Now having another problem with the software not working and I'm sure it will take many steps to resolve.Basically, the makers are the anti-Apple--they haven't learned to create products that are easy to use. I probably wouldn't buy this again as a result. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 30, 2011
