WD External HDD Reviews
Passport_25E24004 is no longer read/recognized
It's a piece of crap. For just one year - My_Passport_25E24004 is no longer read/recognized by window explorer - Need to FORMAT? REALLY??
4 TB Drive
Great drive, great size and ready to go and back up my computer's docs etc.
Works as it should
Excellent for file storage. Nothing else to say.
Purchased this in March of 2023 as my backup for my originals photo and video files as well as my iMovie library. I have an Elements for work and 4 at home for my freelance work which perform flawlessly. However, this Passport has been nothing but issues for the last few months. It works intermittently at best and when plugging another drive or card into the hub (a HyperDrive USB-C for my Mac) the drive will not only disappear but it will eject the other drives and card plugged into the hub. I am blessed these cards and drives work after how many times they've been removed by this Passport. I ordered another Elements on Tuesday July 18th, 2023 and am currently transferring everything off the Passport onto the Elements. If I want the Passport to work I have to plug it in and unplug it multiple times before it actually works or is seen my my MacBook Pro. The hub and ports on the computer are fine as I have two screens and the hub plugged in to two other external drives with no issues. I have tried three different cables with it and still it will only work when it wants to. Once all the data from the Passport is on the Elements I am going to try to re-format/restore it and see if that does anything. If not, off to WD it goes for warranty work. If you want to have a heart attack and think you lost 2TB of original images and your entire library of raw video files go ahead and buy this...me, I do not think I will buy another.
This hard drive performs well. The speed of the hard drive performs well for the price point.
Very disappointed lost all my data.
I was going through files on my WD passport 5TB and it stopped showing up on my computer suddenly and I cannot access my files. I tried troubleshooting it multiple times with no success. Light turns on and it won't read. I have an ancient WD elements HDD that's still going strong but this just suddenly stopped working. Judging from other reviews relatively new units suddenly cease to be recognized. Sucks that it's out of warranty and I spent so much money on a HDD for it to go out less than two years. I simply cannot recommend this product.
Great drive for a good price
great for backup, small and light it is works very well.
Using a pair of them for RAID 1 backup
These were an economical way to set-up RAID 1 back-up for my Mac M2 mini.
