    WD WDBK3E5120PSL-WESN reviews

    512GB My Passport USB 3.1 Type-C External Solid State Drive is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insanely fast! I love this little screamer! I easily clock 200 MB/SEC+ with this drive. I use it mostly for Lightroom RAW processing. Two minor gripes: it's surface finish is such that it shows lots of fingerprints, kind of annoying, and I wish it came with a USB-C to USB cable. It does come with an adapter, but it makes the cable just a little clunky. These are merely cosmetic, superficial issues though, it's performance is amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my old external hard drive seem like a relic My high-res photo files are very large, and waiting for my Toshiba external drive to load my images was making me nuts. Sometimes they wouldn't load at all. This has completely solved the problem. Great small form factor, as well, for portability.
