Product great--shipping method bad

I use this product as an external drive to keep current projects on for my website. Easy to use, just a USB3 plug. Good for travel also. However, this drive arrived (for the 2nd time) in a plastic envelope. I had to return the first one because it had been stomped on by someone. Asked for proper packaging the 2nd time--didn't happen--but was not stomped on this time so I kept it. Not very efficient method, if you ask me.

Pocket-size, lightening fast, & huge storage space

Do you hate extra wires? Do you like extra bulk to carry with you all day? Do you enjoy searching on your hands and knees for a power outlet? Me either. Buy this HDD, free yourself from the stress.

Lots of space, portable, easy to use between computers.

By

from San Francisco  -  Heavy Duty User

Great to back up data and move between computers. 2 TB is twice the space of the hard drive my computer has. I shoot lots of photos on my Nikon D800, and use these to store photos by year, and to move from computer to computer. Would be nicer if it held 3 to 4 tb...

I'm a professional photographer, I work in multiple locations in the Tri-State area and for the last few years, while I do have a thunderbolt drive for immediate storage of active jobs, I, otherwise, have pretty much used these WD drives exclusively. Their light portability is a major factor but they are very reasonably priced and they have proven extremely reliable over several years. In fact, I no longer use desktop drives as they are too expensive, take up too much room and require extra power cords that I have no patience for. In addition, if I've ever had a problem with crashing drives, it has been the larger desktop types.
