One of the best product combo I bought!

I was using another older MicroSD card and a 1Tb hard drive that was constantly filling up. This was the perfect upgrade I was looking for. I take a lot of photos with my phone and I noticed the pictures seem to load faster than before. The external drive also shown a speed difference with my old Seagate external drive. WD are doing things right making theirs smaller and higher capacity. Nothing but love for these 2 products. At the time of this review a single WD 2Tb external drive cost more...

At the time of this review a single WD 2Tb external drive cost more (~$10-15) in anywhere else than what I paid for this combo here in Adorama. It's things like this that makes me want to shop in Adorama more and more!

Item is different from what ordered

Ordered 2TB, the shipping takes 2 whole week. Then I found it's 1TB. Then wasted at least 2 hrs talking to CSR and taking pictures (so they will believe what I said is truth). Have to call them a few times (and listen to the music) to get it resolved. Then waste a box (I threw away the old box) and 1 gallon of gas to drive to UPS to send back. Very bad experience indeed!

not very durable

This drive is fine, but my wife knocked it off the table, a fall of 29", and the drive can no longer be mounted. I would recommend the Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 instead. It's a little bigger, but you can drive your tank over it and it should be fine.

I've now got 10 of these drives and (fingers crossed) no fails. I can't say the same for G-Raid or LaCie and those two cost twice as much.
