Here are the "good" and "bad" on this product.
1. It is cheap. Mine costs $93.
2. It is small. In fact, it is smaller than a 2.5" laptop drive encased in a USB 3.0 enclosure by 1.5".
3. It is the "only game in town." The only other manufacturer of a comparable unit is Seagate. Its products are terrible. From personal experience, its hard drives begin to malfunction after a month. None lasted over a year.
This quality problem was verified by BACKBLAZE. It conducted an intensive testing of hard drives. Seagate units exhibited high rates of breakdowns and durability issues.
4. It is very convenient and easy to operate. Plug the USB 3.0 cable into the computer, and it works. There are no software drivers to install. A separate AC power unit is not needed.
1. The speed is not consistent. During file copy, it starts out at +50 MB/s. Within a few minutes, it slows down to a range between 2.5 to 1.4 MB/s. Periodically, it speeds up to 20 MB/S and quickly goes down again. For the most part, the lower speeds predominate.
I tested the product on two computers. Both exhibited the same problems.
The drive did work fine, however, as a new storage option (as opposed to backing up what I had in the cloud) for about six weeks -- long enough for me to put a lot of data on it. Then it started disconnecting whenever it was even slightly moved or tilted. (The cable was still in place in both ports, but the connection started to come and go while I was using the drive.) Not good for a drive that's supposed to be portable and somewhat sturdy. Customer service at WD initially tried to blame my computer's ports because a "quick scan" diagnostic found nothing wrong within the external drive. However, I insisted on trying a full-scan option, and of course the drive disconnected during the course of that scan. That caused the diagnostic to declare that the drive had bad sectors, and that activated my warranty. But now, before WD will send a replacement, WD says I have to first go to a recommended data-retrieval service AND send the drive back to WD. Unless I can persuade them to come up with an alternative, that will mean days if not weeks without a drive or my data, PLUS the uncertainty that comes with sending out the data that is on the malfunctioning drive - both from a security perspective and just from not knowing what data I'll get back. I would very much prefer that they just send a new drive, so that I can try to transfer the data myself, holding the unstable drive very still. If I end up having to buy a new drive, it will not be a WD MyPassport.

È compatto ma è anche un pochino pesante e produce un suono un po' fastidioso. Pensavo che fosse molto più silenzioso di così ed è solo per questo motivo che do quattro stelle.
per tutto il resto invece non mi lamento perché ha una velocità assurda rispetto a quello che avevo prima e quando l'avevo preso io era scontatissimo.
Ve lo consiglio perché è un ottimo hard disk!
