WD does listen to its customers. As proof I give you their new 1TB SE portable hard drive. No nasty bloatware gumming up the works, no unreliable connectivity. Just a plain simple drive that holds a massive amount of data in a suprisingly small unit. See we consumers can make a difference! WD congratulations on recognizing that "the customer is always right" even if it took a while for it to sink in. I'll be buying more WD products again, starting with another one of these.

UPDATE: I have had 2 of these drives for about a month now and decided I could offer more input to those of you trying to decide on a storage solution. We'll start with the CONS: I bought 2 of these drives and felt I had to return 1 because it had a loose usb port on the drive. The mini USB cable fits very snug in this port and perhaps WD over compensated for early reviews that the stability of the cable was a problem. The drive still functioned, but I was uncomfortable with the fact that the port was not solid after several uses. This is why I've changed my rating from 5 to 4 stars. (By the way return through Amazon was simple and pain free.) Now the PROS: I have kept the second drive and it is performing flawlessly. I'm hoping the port issue was just that particular unit, because I REALLY like this drive. The best thing about it is that WD kept it SIMPLE. There is no bloatware, just a vast amount of storage space! I considered Seagate, but all of their portable drives now appear to have a backup bloatware preinstalled and I don't need or WANT that. The WD elements se 1tb drive is perfect for storing my music, pictures and video to bring with me anywhere I go, and it won't fill up any time soon! Finally, it is the SMALLEST 1TB DRIVE I have seen measuring only about 3" x 4.5" x 0.9".

Warning: as mentioned by a few other reviewers, the USB cable design on this unit is too easy to come loose, thereby impacting file backups. I've purchased dozens of external USB drives from Amazon over the past several years, from many different manufacturers. Some have been slightly better or worse than others. Out of all of these, this has been the first that has been too-bad-to-use. Stay away from this design until they fix the usb connector!

I bought this at newegg and received it today (I mostly buy Amazon stuff but newegg had a much better deal this time). It's just what I wanted, small footprint (3"x 4.38" x 0.75"), very quiet, looks neat. I was going to buy the Seagate portable 1TB ext. hard drive (expansion) weeks back for a pretty good deal at Costco but decided to wait for something that's less in size. I saw two days ago at newegg for a deal on this new item and couldn't wait so took the plunge, wishing WD would have released an improved device after all the user feedbacks on the WD 1TB passport portable version. Looks like WD did. This one is still using micro USB connector, a minor disappointed at first upon opening package but none now with the very steady connection once plugged in. There is no extra software at all on the drive, pre-formatted in NTFS. Nothing more nothing less. Typical USB 2.0 speed. Very satisfied now and will update later when I use it more.

The USB connector on the HDD has been gradually getting worse. It got to the point where moving anything in the vicinity of the cable would cause the drive to disconnect from the PC. Then - scary! - the PC had trouble recognising the drive... finally got it to connect. I'll be copying my data off and taking it back to the store. Now to find a disk with a rock solid USB connector! Any tips?

We bought two of these drives for our video clips for live VJing (video DJing), as they were the first 1TB USB-powered mini drives we could buy.

Unfortunately for us, the power-saving function of these WD drives means that the platter stops spinning regularly (every minute or two) and there are 6-second freezes in the video. We thought it must be possible to turn this 'function' off, but we've just been advised by WD that it can't be disabled.

Apart from that, they're great little drives - just unfortunately of no use to us, or anyone else that requires constant access to data on the drive without 6 seconds of lag now and then.

I'd warn other VJs, and possibly DJs, to buy a different brand of drive.

If you're just editing to it, or using it for data storage or backups, I would still recommend it.

The drive uses a different plug than everyone else. It's not a standard USB mini plug. Other than that it gets a five. about the size of a pack of cigarettes. Plug it in to any USB port with sufficient power, and your off to the races. No advertising, no trials. Just a good sturdy drive that holds an incredible amount for a drive that doesn't have a power supply,

Dead silent too. Stays cool to the touch, even though it has no vent holes.

Delighted with this purchase.
