WD Passport Drives replace WD My Book Drives.

Both WD My Book Drives failed within days of each other after 14+ years of hard use. Purchased the Passport drives because they were on sale and to reduce the total footprint and tangled wires. They so far have proved as reliable as the My Book Drives, after a month of hard use. Strongly recommend the purchase of these drives

It’s awful stoped working after a few months haven’t even moved it or anything it’s just been sitting in the same spot and it stoped working. Don’t waste your money buying this!

I have like 5-6 of these WD 4TB drives for travel and they are really spectacular. I've tried several different drives but come back to these pretty regularly.

This is my second one, the first having been in service for more than two years now. Installation was virtually transparent. Just came up immediately as another drive. Reliability has been excellent. I run these using Windows System 7 Pro on Dell computers.
