Also, I am open for suggestion on memory promotion, you can leave a comment on the post.

    •  

      Hi dedelennons,

      Shipping to 2000 will only take 1-2 business days.
      I would say Friday should not be an issue =)

    I am considering this one.

  •  

    Great price, tempted by this considering it's less than the 2 x 500gb drives I just sold :)

    • +1 vote

      Wow, you done well selling 2 x 500GB drives for more than $69.00

      Wish i could find a sucker to buy my 500GB drives for more than $35.00 a pop!!

      •  

        Not a whole lot more, got $40ea. Noticed a few lucky guys a few weeks earlier than me did a lot better.

      •  

        For me, that's 1TB's!

        HiDef fills 1TB SO quick!

        thanks for your reply, unfortunately not the best deal, its kind of the regular price so will keep waiting :)
        thanks anyway

        •  

          Hi msmhw,

          I do agree that the 500GB price is not that attractive, let me see what I can work out with my supplier.
          As for the 250GB, I reckon it is consider a reasonable price.

          Cheers
          Francesca

          @francesca2148:

          FWIW I agree, the 250GB is a good price. Would be a steal if it was free shipping but don't do that, it'll make me feel worse having paid $110 for the 120GB version a few weeks ago :P

    Is this suitable for Macs or PCs?

    I've had terrible issues in the past with WD and Macs.

    • +1 vote

      Should be fine once you reformat it to that Mac OS extended format

    • +4 votes

      Hi Frood,

      The WD MyPassport is suitable for Mac according to the Western Digital website - http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=1000#Tab3
      For formatting the HDD to the correct format, you will need to follow the following guide - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201909
      By default, the volume format should be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)", which is only readable by Mac OS devices. You can also set it to "MS-DOS File System" AKA "FAT32" which can be read by MAC OS and Windows OS.

      The default format of the MyPassport should be FAT32, which can be read by MAC OS, otherwise the guide above should solve your issue.

      Unfortunately I am unable to guarantee the success of this as I have not tested this myself. It is best to check with Western Digital personally.

      Cheers

    How does this HDD compare with this one:

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/197089

    • +1 vote

      Hello there,

      The WD Drive is a little smaller than the Toshiba Drive, by about 2-8mm on each side.
      Both are similar in speeds, if not the same.
      The Western Digital HDD does however come with password protection where the Toshiba HDD does not.

      Other than that, not too many differences.

      Cheers

    Looking for a good deal on the WD My Passport 2TB.

    •  

      Hi Guys,

      Unfortunately I can't do much on the 2TB model, not much in stock either.
      Best I can do is $139 + Shipping.

      Would you still like me to add that onto specials?

      Cheers
      Francesca

  •  

    Thanks. $147 @ OW including delivery, so don't worry adding that to specials.

    • +4 votes

      Hi cirah,

      Had a discussion with my manager, he's ok to release the 2TB model @ 129 + shipping.
      Shipping would be around 8-10 dollars.

      Would that be better?

      Cheers

    Beware that these drive a proprietary connection unlike other drives which I have a standard USB connection.

    • +2 votes

      Hi dlakers3peat,

      The cable from the looks of it should not be a proprietary connection as the cable itself will work with other USB3.0 devices.

      Cheers,
      Francesca

      • +2 votes

        The USB connector is standard, the HDD inside the case is proprietary:
        http://i.stack.imgur.com/Tivkt.jpg

        This won't matter for anyone looking to use this for it's intended prpose, however when portable drives are this cheap some people buy them to crack open the case and use the HDD in laptops, mini-itx devices, etc.. connected to the standard SATA connectors.

        • +1 vote

          Hi hutsy,

          Yes you are indeed correct.
          WD portable drives usually have proprietary connectors on the inside and not the standard SATA connection.
          I did not take into consideration that the intended purpose may be for internal use in laptops or for other SATA compatible devices.

          Thank you for clarifying that for me.

          Cheers,

      Hi missy sonia,

      This deal will only last for 24 hours, will expire tomorrow noon time.
      You can arrange to register an account, and add that item into your cart. It should stay there until you are ready to pay.

      Any issues, please let me know =)

      Cheers
      Francesca

        I went back to my cart and the hard drive is now $89+shipping.
        Any chance the $69 price will be back?

    perhaps a good buy, for those wanting to upgrade your XB1 storage?

    • +1 vote

      Hi cheapgeek,

      It is compatible with the Xbox One!
      You will of course need to format the drive before usage (done through the XB1 interface).
      The RPM of the MyPassport should be the same as the built-in HDD in the XB1 at 5400RPM.
      And the USB3.0 connection will allow for good installation/transfer speeds.

      Cheers,
      Francesca

    Thanks OP, got one.

      Thank you justcallmeboss =)

    Haven't owned one of these but have had bad experiences with WD drive software in the past, which is why I usually go for an elements drive.

    Do these drives come encrypted? There seem to be user 2 manuals on the WD site, one for encrypted, one unencrypted.

    Encrypted drives: http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/UM/ENG/4779-705098.pdf
    Unencrypted drives: http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/UM/ENG/4779-705099.pdf

    That's a lot of pages for something that should be as simple as plug and copy.

    I understand if you use them without encryption, there's a virtual CD (which can be disbled). I imagine that's similar to the IronKeys I use at work.

    Anyone got any experience with these that they can share?

    •  

      Hi syousef,

      These drives do come with Encryption.
      The Part number we are selling is -
      WDBZFP0010BWT

      The models that do not come with encryption are -
      WDBLNP5000Axx
      WDBJNZ0010Bxx
      WDBBUZ0020Bxx
