Western Digital My Passport 1TB Review
The Western Digital My Passport 1TB is the sophisticatedly sleek portable external hard drive which caters to the large storage capacity needs of people from all walks of life. It dos not only offer the top of the line quality to back up your files but it also has a way of making everything more fast-paced and extra speedy.
The metal enclosure and the USB and FireWire ports on the WD make it look sturdier and much higher in capacity. For those who do not take the extra effort to back-up and scan their files, the Western Digital My Passport has an offer. It does all the tardy jobs of automatically scanning and backing up the data.
On the bad side though, due to its ultra-high capacity, you might find it a bit of a downer that the back-ups consume some of the storage as well. Laptop and desktop computers are both compatible to the Western Digital My Passport and will probably make you feel secured and give you sound mind as your files and important data are totally protected. So if and only if you are looking for a portable device to safely back up your storage and pretty much expand your computer’s capacity, then this will do. Besides, a hundred bucks is not that much of a big deal for obsessive compulsive techies, right?
Even though the design or the finish has always been a stunner, it still is kind of fragile for some people. The glossy finish has the possibility of getting scratched easily. Also, the USB’s lack of flap cover makes it prone to accumulating dusts very quickly which is actually hard to clean for most people. The small physique of the Western Digital My Passport 1TB allows the owners to bring it anytime and anywhere as it can just fit the pocket like a purse. The cable it comes with also has the built that can fit snugly anywhere and still work perfectly.
But not everything is pretty much stunning and exquisite about the WD Passport. For once, the physical appearance it has was given prior understudy and innovation so that it can match with the design of Macs. However, because of that, the quality it has may be too sensitive and vulnerable.
Another weak spot of this device is the warranty as it is much shorter than most of its competitors. It also does not support the USB 3.0 which is actually pretty famous right now. But then again that is just such a minor drawback for those who need a quick home studio.
Yes, it’s true that it is not as responsive or intuitive as you would expect it to be but then again it still provides you with something that has a large storage capacity and still looks so minimalist. So if you are a photographer, a business representative, or a career person who needs a device that will not be much of a burden, then this very affordable device will not disappoint you.
