The Western Digital My Passport 1 TB Hard Drive is perfect for those who want a portable drive with a large 1 TB worth of data capacity. It comes in a stylish black color design, takes advantage of the most recent USB 3.0 connectivity technology to give you fast data transfer and is a great solution if you need an external drive to backup important files.
1 TB Worth of Data Capacity Gives You All the Storage You NeedWhether it is full-length videos, images or business documents, our files take up an increasing amount of space on storage devices. This hard drive is designed to provide a solution for those who need a large storage capacity. For example, 1 TB worth of data capacity is enough to save around 500 HD movies. With such a high storage capacity, running out of space on your hard drive becomes a thing of the past.
Fast Data Transfer With USB 3.0 High ConnectivityOne common complaint among users of external hard drives is low transfer speeds. Nobody wants to sit and wait while their files are being copied to an external drive. This is why the My Passport gives you full USB 3.0 high connectivity, which is up to three times faster when compared to the previous technology, USB 2.0. For those using older devices that don't support USB 3.0, the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. But, with devices that also support USB 3.0 high connectivity, you?ll be backing up your files at blazing fast speeds.
Use Automatic Backup Software to Safeguard Important FilesDoing your backups manually may seem like quite a chore, which is why Western Digital has included automatic backup software with the My Passport line of hard drives. This automatic backup software lets you automatically backup selected files to the drive, which means you will never forget to backup again. For more security, the software lets you add password protection to the drive's contents as well.
Compact and Portable Form FactorNobody wants to lug around a bulky device when they're on the go. This drive has been specially designed for maximum portability thanks to its sleek form factor, allowing you to easily carry your data everywhere you go. The device is fully USB-powered, so there's no need to carry around yet another power adapter with you. Numerous stylish carrying cases have been made for the My Passport line of portable drives as well.
The Western Digital My Passport 1 TB Hard Drive is much smaller and thinner when compared to competing products while still giving you a great amount of storage capacity. Its USB 3.0 connectivity is an added plus for those who need fast data transfer.
Massive capacity, small designOffering massive 2 TB capacity in an amazingly small enclosure, My Passport is the ideal companion for anyone with lots of videos, photos, music and files that they want to help protect and take on the road.
Automatic, continuous backup softwareBackup means having a second copy of your files at all times. WD's automatic backup software makes that easy. It continually works quietly in the background to help protect your data while using minimal PC resources. Whenever you save or change a file, it's instantly backed up.
Ultra-fast transfer ratesWhen connected to a USB 3.0 port, My Passport lets you access and save files with blazing speed. Reduce transfer time by up to 3 times when compared to USB 2.0 transfer rates.

Lives up to WD reputation
By Trail Blazer
You can't go wrong with this drive. The only thing I don't like is that I have 3 WD drives that I have bought over the years and each one has a different style USB cable. That's modern technology for you.
Perfect for backup
from New York, NY
I back up my entire machine on this tiny unit. Anything happens, it's ready to go. It works perfectly and is more than fast enough for my purpose -- especially considering that I have not upgraded to USB 3.0 yet. For me, the cord could be a little shorter because I have top-mounted USB ports on my desktop. But the cord length is probably perfect for most. I highly recommend this little drive.
Good hard drive. Working when it arrived. USB 3.0 standard is very fast and makes backing up files quick.
from atlantic city, NJ
small enough to work well with a notebook
I would buy this product again and again
from Houston, TX
I love this small size WD external hard drive. It meet all my expectation. I need a simple plug and use 1 TB hard drive to backup my files and I do not want additional power to plug in.Would recommend this product to everyone. And it is stylish.
Good product for the price

Will be using for computer backup

Great product, Great service
from Tucson, AZ
Very easy to setup and the speed differences between USB 3.0 and 2.0 is incredible. If you have USB 3.0 on your computer, it is time to upgrade. The speed alone is enough reason to upgrade to 3.0.
