    This is my second WD Passport drive, so it's obvious I like them. The first (a 1TB) is used when traveling to backup photos in the field. It stays tucked away in a pocket of my Powerbook's case. I bought the second (the 2 TB) to archive finished photos; it will go into a bank's safe deposit box for off-site storage.

    I bought this to store Gigs of media (video) to watch on TV, and backup tonnes of photos taken over years.

    It feels very spacious, and very solid when handling.

    Everything was going great until i notices it was really slow in copying (copy process would freeze), forcing me to restart my laptop. Now it sometimes loads, and sometimes is not displayed despite USB detecting it. When it shows, i can browse content but I try to play back video, it hangs, and then every 5minutes I hear the Chirp sound! I think it has packed up only 1 months after purchase.

    WD 2TB or not 2TB...

          Comments about WD 2TB Elements Portable Hard Drive:

          I already own 2 of the 1TB Touro drives which I love. I needed something larger but they don't seem to make a 2TB. WD owns Touro so it was really only a matter of the difference in the case. The Touro is slightly longer and narrower which I prefer and I also prefer the light much better on the Touro, both the type of LED and the location. Oh, well. The WD is fine. I will only buy this type of drive, not those with the built-in software as you can't remove it or recover the partition it's stored on.

                  I use this for keeping a backup of all my photos, music, movies on dvd - all electronic data. Its a very easy to setup and use drive on mac as well as windows. Format it for a mac before using, if you plan to use on all OS. No over heating, Nominal working noise, A handy product.

                  Transfer speed is around 60-80 MB/s on USB 3.0. Less than advertised, but acceptable with the type of data that we have as of now.

                    I always use WD external hard drives, easy to use, plug and play, no hassels. 3.0 buss works great for high speed transfers of large files. I would definately purchase this drive again if necessary.

                                  I have several of these drives which I previously bought from another online business, but the B&H price was lower and no sales tax or shipping costs. If I had known that B&H sold these drives, I would have purchased from this business long ago. Great price and great shipping!!! All I do is format the drive to exfat for use on my PC and iMac. Great way to transfer data between my two computers. Fast USB 3.0 transfers from/to my PC.

                                    OK 2 Tb is not really little. I got this as a new bigger drive to serve as a Time Machine backup for my Mac Powerbook. Plugged it in, reformatted as a mac drive. Works great. Very fast USB3 to backup my SSD.

                                      I bought this to store Gigs of media (video) to watch on TV, and backup tonnes of photos taken over years.

                                      It feels very spacious, and very solid when handling.

                                      Everything was going great until i notices it was really slow in copying (copy process would freeze), forcing me to restart my laptop. Now it sometimes loads, and sometimes is not displayed despite USB detecting it. When it shows, i can browse content but I try to play back video, it hangs, and then every 5minutes I hear the Chirp sound! I think it has packed up only 1 months after purchase.

                                          I bought 3 of these drives for back-ups. Since they are only used for back-ups, speed doesn't matter much to me because I back up overnight. They are fast enough for my purposes. I've only had them for a few weeks and so far they work fine. Can't speak to reliability over time but I've been satisfied with other WD drives. I have no complaints but I can't give 5 stars because I don't know if they will fail tomorrow, next week, next year or in 5 years. If I needed another drive, though, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of these.

                                                  I use it to transfer video files from my BMPCC. Love the portability and the fact that although not perfect, it's pretty durable compared to a more desktop one you would have to plug in. Able to hold a lot of data to take to editing.

                                                    I use it for the small size. It's USB3 so plugs into the laptop. Since we travel in a PU camper, space is limited.
