I wanted an external HDD because my laptop HDD was running out of space. After some research I found this WD MyPassport. Initially I was planning to buy 2 TB one but my friend discouraged me. So I bought the 1 TB version. There were 1 TB HDDs from other manufacturers but I chose this because of the 256 bit hardware encryption feature. It provides an extra layer of security without impacting on performance.Pros:1. USB 3.0 - This ensures maximum transfer rate in or out depending on the host you connect it to. I get around 80 MB/sec or more sequential write speed and about 40 MB/sec read speed mainly because of my hardware limitation. It's USB 2.0 compatible so you don't have to worry if you don't have a USB 3.0 port.2. 256 bit Hardware Encryption - I think this is a must-have feature for external HDDs. I don't know whether this actually encrypt all your data or just deny access to the unencrypted data without an access key. You can secure the HDD with a password of your choice and you don't need any additional software for it because they are pre-installed. You don't have to enter the password each time you plug it into you PC/laptop, because you can set it to remember your frequently used devices. One downside of this feature is that it's not compatible with Linux unless you find a workaround (I don't know about Mac). There are some other utilities too which I find useful.3. It has a bright white LED notification on one side which blinks rapidly while read/write operation.4. Auto sleep mode - It'll automatically enter into sleep/power down mode if you don't access it for a while.5. You get around 930 GB free space just after initial setup ( 1GB = 1000 MB as per WD. But Windows interprets 1 GB as 1024 MB. December 9, 2015
