  1. The hard disk works just fine, but the data cable attached to it is very poor and becomes very loose after just 6 months. Even if the laptop is moved very little the wire becomes loose and whole setup is disturbed

  2. I bought this product on festive sales during independence day 2016. The product performance seems ok, I was able to store some 200 GB Data, but I am not sure if it is locked whether it is covered under warranty. One should check this before buying, most of the guys make money by locking the data. Secondly I was charged 6600 less 500 bucks cash back during the festive season. However I found the product price was listed as 5750 after the festive sale concluded. I felt that I was being taken for a royal ride…..when I contacted Amazon guys their amazing reply was bad luck buddy we are helpless ! So guys beware unless you are sure that you are getting a good deal during festive season don’t buy if you are unsure.

  3. Great for for everyday use, solid and sleek build. Feels stable in your hands.However, despite careful treatment, the disk malfunctioned – it started ticking and was either unable to be detected on my pc, or showed “critical hardware error” in disk manager on windows around an year after the purchase.I use the words “careful treatment” because this is the second time a WD hard disk has failed me. with my previous drive, I thought it was my fault because I had dropped it multiple times. However, I was careful and attentive with this product and it still failed.I had a 3 year warranty so I’m getting it replaced( I would really like the money back instead but that’s not gonna happen :/ )Despite my anger, the hard drive performed well when it worked. However, slow data transfer occurs if you fill it more than 1.4 TB

  4. Item did not work from the minute I received it. It made clicking noises.Tried initiating a replacement and I got a message this item isn’t eligible for returns!?!!?? Can the seller just ship any junk they feel like??

  5. Western Digital 2TB Red NAS Hard Disk Drives (Western Digital20EFRX)I’m writing the review after 1.5 month of usage. The item is not usable anymore. It’s showing bad sector and my Synology NAS Server rejected this disk now. I lost most of my data. It’s really shame to happen a failure in just 1 month.Now I’m wondering how to get the product replaced. The RMA of WD is not supporting my location. I wrote a support case 3 days before and still not reply.Everything working good, I purchased 2 items for my new NAS Server.I’m not really happy, because one of this was not in a sealed pack [Sold By: Appario Retail Private Ltd] . I don’t know is this a used one or not.Anyway I was able to register both product in wd site and the warranty status is showing 3 years.

  6. Superb 👌 👌… Very fast, compact and the blue color is awsome… No noise or vibration….super silent…. My laptop detects it instantly and there is no lag whatsoever in transfer of data …very reliable… The usb wore supplied with it of superb quality… And the price of 5000/- is just great 👍…. My laptop had 320gb and I needed more space now… So, I opted this over 1tb as the price difference between the two is of just Rs.1500….so, go for it guys…

  7. Awesome Product.. it’s light weight it’s fast it’s awesome! Received on time! Packing was Impressively Good, overall I m happy having WD… Speed on 3.0 is around 60-90mbps & on 2.0 is 10-25mbps

  9. I have a segate 1 TB HDD and i bought WD 2TB HDD . Today WD has been delivered. Its robust. I bought Red color. Quality of WD is much better than segate if we think from durability point of view. Red colour look great. But the data transfer rate in seagate is 18MBPS where as in WD speed is 12-13 MBPS for same sort of data. This is my first review for WD . Let me check some days and update you if any.

  12. Looks good and feels light. Needs a cover or will not last. Can’t comment on durability after just 2 months of use. I get reasonable transfer speeds from usb 3 ports. Would’ve preferred usb c rather than a proprietary connector. At anything above 5. 5k this would be expensive. Can go for it but buy on sale when prices fall.

  13. No doubt hard disk(2tb) is working properly, as it supposed to be. also it was delivered in scheduled time.But I doubt the life of this one ‘latest model’ as the thickness is less compared to old one(2tb) which was available till may-june 2018. Lesser the thickness of the plates inside of the hard disk lesser will be its life. Personally I feel older was much better.

  15. I ordered this item on 10 oct 2018 and delivered it to me on 16 oct 2018.I got this external harddisk at 4500 rs at the time of amazon great indian sale.Look wise it’s great specially the red colour is very attractive.This product is too small beyond my expectation and light weight.You can easily carry this drive on your pocket(prefer to use a hard case).At the time of transfering any data from my laptop to this drive is vibrating more than the regular.Before buying this WD 2TB i was so much confused between WD 2TB my passport and seagate backup plus slim 2TB but finally go for WD 2TB my passport.At the time of research on it i found that the failure rate of the seagate drive is more than WD.but both are a very good company to produced storage drive.Regarding the delivery it was not so good.Amazon delivered this product to me without any airbags in it.They just put the box to a amazon regular pack and without any protection they delivered the product.It can damage your product at the time of transit.

  18. I purchased one from local market about two years ago to use in an NAS server (HP proliant, running FreeNAS). It is formatted as ZFS filesystem (recommended by FreeNAS) and is very responsive in both read/writes.So far it is working perfectly without any signs of wear & tear. The server remains on 24×7, and the average data written to it daily is around 4 GB. The read average is much more though.This one I bought from amazon is a newer version of the same drive, and has apparently improved. It is still too soon to comment on its robustness or lifelong performance, but at present it sure does seem to do the job well.

  19. I ordered 2 TB-Blue for Rs 4500 [4999-499(10% instant off, SBI)] The product was eligible for free 1 day delivery from Dankuni warehouse to Dumdum, Kolkata.The product is very compact and light-weight. Maximum available storage is 1863 GB because storage manufacturers consider 1000 byte= 1 kilobyte, 1000 KB= 1 MB etc. (They use 1000 multiplier instead of 1024) The hard disk has 1 partition using the GPT scheme. WD kept about 1 MB unallocated at the beginning and at the end of the primary partition.Always perform the surface test and SMART test after buying a hard disk. I have used lots of tools to benchmark and to check the health of the hard disk.1. Windows Data Lifeguard Diagnostics2. CrystalDiskMark, CrystalDiskInfo3. HD Tune4. Hard Disk Sentinel5. EaseUS partition master6. DiskCheckup, GSmartControlAverage random seek time: 0.76 ms. Read speed/ Write speed depends on a lot of factors. Read speed at areas with data: about 70-80 MBPS, Read speed at empty areas: 220-250 MBPS. The surface test took about 2 Hours 10 Minutes because most of the hard disk was empty. Write speed is about 80-90 MBPS. The temperature was about 44-45 degree Celcius during heavy read-write (atmosphere was about 30 degree Celcius). Please see the attached images for full test results.WD pre-loaded some software for users in the hard disk. WD Discovery, WD backup, and WD drive utilities. The offline installers are outdated and they need to be updated later. Thus, if you have an internet connection, I recommend downloading them directly from the official website. Also, download WD security if you need to password protect your hard disk. WD discovery software doesn’t do much except helping you to install other software. Thus you can skip this one. You need to configure WD backup to enable automatic backup. You can import/export from/to online storages. You can also disable the blinking LED light, enable idle sleeping etc using the software.Register at WD official website to check your warranty status, product manual etc. Warranty is 3 years from the date of invoice (not the date of delivery). Register at UpThere (Parent organization: Western Digital) to get 20 GB free online storage.

  20. It’s been 3 days, so I’m writing this review- it’s not that durable it’s made kinda plastic so if you drop it I mean you HDD is gone- now lets talk ’bout other features it’s very portable and light weight so you can easily carry and also it’s easy to use as it’s plug and play and it’s coming with wd softwares for backup and security but these are outdated so download it from the wd website and use- the color and design is also very good and it’s not noisy and the data transfer speed is quite embarrassing ’cause as of USB 3.0 it’s speed must within 120-80 Mbps but actually it’s speed is a bit slow it’s 60-90 Mbps I haven’t even seen 100 Mbps with this drive so far- but after all it’s a product with a lots bad and good reviews by the customers so you have to wait till the end of the day I mean end of the HDD so until then have a nice experience. thanks be force with you

  21. Got the SSD. Took me a few days to get a HDD holder to try to clone this drive. SSD was not being recognized by PC when connected to the HDD holder. Needed to isolate the problem. So took out the original HDD from my laptop and tested with the HDD holder – and it was being recognized! So the problem is with the SSD – but not able to return it now because there is no option to return it!!!!!!!!! Help !!!!!!!!!!Amazon told me that manufacturer would be able to help. Called WD and they did an RMA process for me since there is a 3 yr warranty on the SSD. Had to drop off the bad drive at their local center – they tested and confirmed it was bad. A replacement will be mailed to me in a week or so – but it will be a refurbished drive and not a new one!!!!!!!!!!!! Hoping that the replacement comes in working condition.A bitter experience overall – paying retail price to finally get a used drive!!! Thanks Amazon! – for tossing me over to the manufacturer.Update (20 Nov 18)WD sent me a replacement, which looks like a new drive (not refurbished, as I was told by their support team). I cloned my HDD and installed it. laptop working much faster now. I am upgrading the review to a 4 star from a 1 star because of my experience dealing with WD. Despite the early pain, the whole WD replacement experience was rather smooth – I want to show my appreciation for this.

  22. Kudos to amazon again for the delivery. They’re always reliable and take good care of their customers or at least I’m speaking for myself.Then coming to the product itself I’ve 3 hard disks and all three of them are western digital 2TB brought in different years and each single one of them is working fabulously so far. No complaints whatsoever till now. I’d recommend it to my friends.

No complaints whatsoever till now. I’d recommend it to my friends.

  24. The first thing i liked about this product is its lightweight for the storage of 2TB.I received a genuine product from Amazon at a pretty good deal of ₹4499.The speed test conducted using CrystalDiskMark6 provided me Read speed at 133.6 MB/s and Write speed at 122.7 MB/sLoved it totally!

  25. Performance is nice. Cable provided should be some more long as desktop users face some difficulties. LED light indicator serves its purpose. Faster. 3 years warranty given. Size is so handy.

  26. The WD My passport External Hard Drive 2Tb firstly when it was delivered it was working good and speed was great, but the next day the speed was not like the other day and on the third day it was very low on speed and suddenly was not able to detect on my laptop, on any port. So, I had to return it.Not a great experience for a first time buyer of External Hard Drive.

  27. It is very easy to use. My computer immediately recognised the drive. Registration was a breeze due to wd software. Genuine product sent. Warranty activation from date of registration. Very light weight so just to be safe I’ve ordered the case for it which has a spot to store the cable. Don’t lose its cable as it’s a USB type A cable I think for plugging into the external HHD. Transfer speeds even in USB 2.0 Port is 70mbps can’t wait to try it with a USB 3.0 Port. They claim it’s speed would be in the 100’s of Mbps

  28. At first when I got the ssd, I thought amazon delivered the wrong product to me. It was as light as feather. I was surprised. I knew the traditional hdds weigh a bit. I expected something heavier as paid heavy price for it. Then the hp engineer told me that it’s just a memory card, so it’s normal to weigh so little.Now coming to the performance I did a performance test write speed showed somewhere near 520 and reading about 530. Booting happens in 2-3 seconds. Apps launching at nominal time period. Fully statisfied. Don’t forget to register the product on WD website for warranty disputes.

  29. My drive failed today, 5 months after I bought. 3 YEARS warranty and completely zero physical damage or anything really. Just decided to fail. Let me tell you the horror story that follows:If you go to avail warranty on WD’s site, you’ll realize that it does not say ANYWHERE that they can repair it. Because they can’t. They can only replace it. That’s understandable sure. As long as they recover you data and give it to you on a new drive right?GUESS what. They don’t. If you want to recover your data, you have to pay to do it yourself. Moreover, they have the cheek to first MAKE you fill out a form so that they can APPROVE that you’re doing data recovery, because doing it yourself directly voids your warranty.THEN, you have to somehow scrounge up another completely empty drive to backup your failed drive’s data at whatever third party you go to recover data, pay that service from your own pocket, start an “RMA” process, then ship the bloody failed drive to Bangalore, pay for shipping and wait for them to send you a replacement drive, which they’ll probably take their own sweet time to do.I used to really trust this brand. But it’s pathetic now. I’ll think 10 times before I buy a WD.Western Digital: If your drive fails, save yourself the burden and just kill yourself instead.

  31. This is my first WD hard disk…and it’s awesome.Mainly I bought this external hard disk for my Android TV box to Store and play my 100+ movie collection and Backup my mobile data and Photos taken by camera. So, I tried to connect this to my Samsung Note 8 and Samsung A8 Star via OTG. Both two phones are connected usually(Doesn’t need any additional power supply). At first time, Formatting window shows in all three devices. Because, This external HDD in as NTFS File system . Android doesn’t support NTFS file system. So, I formated this HDD in my Android TV Box as exFAT file system. Before formatting and after formatting I checked its file system in my PC. Before formatting PC shows the HDD in NTFS format and after format PC shows in exFat format. It doesn’t heat up and its vibration is too low comparing to other HDD’S.And i also checked this HDD’S OTG compatibility in some other devices. Samsung A6 Plus and Asus Zenfone 3 ZE552KL have supports this HDD without having any use of additional power supply. So this HDD consumes less power and Writing and reading speed is ok for me. Plays 4K videos without buffering in Android TV Box.This HDD’s actual storage capacity is 1862.9GB(Photo attached).Transfer speed 100Mb/s to 131Mb/s on USB 3.0(blue port) and maximum 42Mb/s on USB 2(black port) on pc…In mobile OTG, Speed getting 30Mb/s to 41Mb/s.simple as that… fits in jeans back pocket…Drawback: it’s too delicate. Don’t drop and don’t keep something heavy on it.According to me, It’s a good🤞 deal.I strongly recommend this brand and I should prefer☝️ this brand for my future purchases🤗 regarding these kind of products💗.Anyway its a great value👍 for money💱 purchase.______________________________________________________________👌Well, That’s from me now your Turn☺️👉Last But Not Least Thanks🤝 For Your Precious Time⌚ Reading📖 this Review And I Also Spent Hours’⌛ To Take Pictures🖼️, And i take a lot of times to post the review. ☺️☺️☺️If this review is helpful for you, please hit the 👍 helpful button

  32. Worst product. Lost my 400 gb of data saying parameter is in correct .This is second time iam experience in this issue with same company drive. Do not buy this.

  33. If your system do not support M.2 ssdOr you do not have money for 860, definately go for it.Pros:1. Its a SSD thats the biggest plus2. Light weight3. Read/write speeds are awesome specially when upgrading from HDD.CONS:1. Very bad service from local courier.2. Plastic used in body feels cheap comparing to the price.3. Crystal disk benchmark is showingread: 548MB/s (560MB/s promised)write: 507MB/s (530MB/s promised) even after running multiple times. Not a huge deal but even then its not as promised.

  34. Great look extraordinary

    This is my 10th Seagate HDD purchase. I really love seagate external hard drives. I have 1 TB, 1.5 TB and 2 TB. A few days ago, when i saw this new model edition and i thought of giving it try. I liked the design but the problem is its in ”exFAT” system format. Usually, most of the drive will be in NTFS which is quite user friendly. But this ”exFAT” has biggest problem with transfer speed. So, i have to format to NTFS and now, transfer speed is good. So, as of now, its better to go for older model than new one. Because full formatting takes hours and it just painful and consumes time. Yes, you can go for quick format but full format identifies bad sectors and it literally completes formatting procedure.Of course, ”exFAT” is advance file system of FAT32. And also it detected with Sony LED TV. But the problem is transfer speed. And also i read the file system formats in Seagate website, especially about ”exFAT” file system, kindly see below:”exFAT: generally compatible with Mac and Windows. exFAT is not a journaled file system which means it can be more susceptible to data corruption when errors occur or the drive is not disconnected properly from the computer”This is not user friendly but you have to format it to NTFS to make it as user friendly. Therefore, i leave it up to you, guys! and its your call for going for this new edition of Seagate.

    At the heart of the matter, the write speeds are low, in my case virtually “0”. Crystal disk mark for a 64Bit Windows machine is given.Would recommend some other Tier 1 brands instead of this if the drive is used for backup, you need good and sustained speeds, which this drive does not giveOn the positive the product looks good, much nicer than the earlier gen for sure.
