I started buying the WD Passport about 5 years ago and I have to say all of them have failed me, causing the loss of important files of all kind. I got to return some of them but they broke again just like the previous ones. I even returned one at the end of last year and two months later it broke too. I have to make sure you understand that none of them had been damaged by falling down or anything like that. I take good care of this kind of stuff.
My last “leap of faith” with the WD passports was buying 2 Passports Ultra that SO FAR have been working fine. I just had them for 6 months, so the last word still haven’t been said… although I really have a feeling this time they got it right.
But back to all the previous ones, the reason I wrote this post is to find out if the same experience had happened to others. And I would also like to complain to the makers of this specific product since you offer a one year guarantee but what that should also come with a data recovery put back into the replacement you send to really make up for the “Real” money I lost because of your bad product.
