This is a nice drive make sure to click through each of the storage amounts due to time of writing this review the 500 GB was only $10 less than the 1 TB and doubling your space for $10 is a no-brainer (Also make sure to click through the different colors as the prices differ for the same storage size as an example the time of writing this review the black and blue 2 TB hard drives were $20 less than the red 2 TB hard drive). I never use backup software so I will not comment on that. I am on a Mac and time machine does it for me but when I was a Windows user I could just format the hard drive and use it to store my files. I also recommend doing just one partition as personally I think when I get into many partitions it gets confusing as to where I put what, then you’ll run out of space on one partition while having plentiful on the other just use folders. If you are a Mac user setting this hard drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps. 1. Plug in the the drive2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder3. Next choose the newly plugged in a drive and on the right-hand side you may want to see partition click on that. 4. Then inside that screen on the partition layout drop-down decide how many partitions you’d want to set up. I usually go with one partition and just use folders to manage my files. 5. Then on the right-hand side you may be able to name the partitions and choose the format. If you’re transferring video files I greatly recommend you decide Mac OS expanded (If you want to use it with Time Machine this is the choice you have to make) as it can handle files over 4GB.

Update 2/23/14 – Okay fellow Amazon customers. I am caving in to some of the comments that have been posted on my review and upping my star ranking to four stars. Reason being that the price of this storage drive keeps fluctuating so much that it is frequently a more favourable deal than other, lesser drives out there. I have also edited my review a bit to accommodate that. The drive itself was working like a champ for me so far and I have got no complaints there. But, I am still holding off one star caused by most of the reasons I stated in my original review. The WD Smartware included software is still garbage in spite of recent updates/patches, and I stick to my story that the packaging is misleading to the non-technical. I had been using a Seagate FreeAgent Go 640GB movable drive for about three years now, and wanted something with some more space and higher move speeds. I bought this drive for it is beefy 2 TB of storage space and speedier USB 3. 0 interface. Out of the box, you get the drive, a 15″ USB 3. 0 cable, soft pouch, fast install guide, and a 3-year restricted warranty. The drive looks nice, and seems to be of good construction. Does not look or feel cheaply made. I like how compact it’s. It is about an inch shorter in length than my FreeAgent Go, and maybe a millimeter or two thicker. The included soft pouch is a nice addition and helps keep dust and dirt off of it. Not an ideal case solution if you are prone to dropping things or somewhat rough with your belongings, so you may want to invest in a more rugged case. It works good for me although as I keep mine in a messenger bag when on the go, and it is a nice addition considering most other drives do not come with anything.

Update 12 No 2013: Needed a slight update to my review because my original assert that My Passport (no super) is cheaper is not true. Prices change, so do compare them before purchasing. My Passport super is a fast drive. I have had some number of USB3 drives over the years and they’re all real fast. If you have to move big amount of data quickly, like 100+GBs, USB3 is the way to go. By hardware, I do not have any complaints. Oh the case looks pretty sleek too. No power cable obliged. You may be able to use the USB cable with USB2 ports also, with the speed downgraded. – Bundle Software -1. WD Drive Utilities – gives some utilities services to check position, test functionality and reformatting. 2. WD Security – Enables you to set password to the drive3. WD SmartWare Pro – This handles the auto-backup. It is for Windows only but Mac users can just use Time machine. You may be able to decide to backup to Dropbox online for extra duplication. The thing about Dropbox is, you have to have your account (clearly). WD isn’t any extra storage on Dropbox so the default starts at 2GB. Now, the paid Dropbox plan starts with 100GB for 99 dollars per year. Personally, I could just purchase another WD My Passport for duplication backup. For the same mount of money, I may also purchase two different brands of 500GB hard drives for two peace of mind. If you are into cloud drive, also check out Amazon Cloud Drive and the Google Drive. Both offer syncing services to your desktop drives.
