I got maximum of 109MB/s for *.zip file
avg 50MB/s for some *.mkv files to exFAT & NTFS format
avg 100MB/s for same *.zip file
maximum 110MB/s for *.mkv file
I am facing heating issue while transferring files & connected standby.
Of course, ''exFAT'' is advance file system of FAT32. And also it detected with Sony LED
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 give
On the positive the product looks good, much nicer than the earlier gen for sure.

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.

2. CrystalDiskMark, CrystalDiskInfo
3. HD Tune
4. Hard Disk Sentinel

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

You may face some warranty issues as I faced as also stated in other reviews and that's why I am writing this review so as it can help you resolving it as I got it resolved.
As stated Hard disk has got 3 years of Limited warranty with registering on wd official registration page but after registering you may find warranty to be less than 3 years as I got 968 days only instead of 3 years(1095 days approximately) because while registration WD won't ask you for Invoice so they won't have any proof for purchase date and you have to add it manually.
So to resolve it

It's a plug & play device instant recognition on the computer, no drivers needed.
Overall i'm satisfied with the purchase.
good quality cable.
does the job for me.
nice and compact., can be carried in trouser pockets if needed.
definitely worth the purchase.
good alternative to other products available
complete value for money.
I earlier had two of this exact model, both purchased in Germany. They both failed after 2 or 3 years of usage. When they fail, they would refuse to read anything at all - the system simply won't detect it.
I was cursing myself for purchasing this, and purchased another brand last year called "Quantum Zero", but that turned out to be an utter garbage. It would mark all the files in my card as corrupted.
I ended up purchasing this again, and it works well and all my cards are back to normal (I use SD, CF, and a variety of other cards for various purposes).
I have rated it merely 3 stars due to my negative experience with 2 of my previous readers of this exact make/model that failed in 3 years time.

USB 3.0 ->
Write Speed :- 50-60 MB/s.. (Approx.) (Sometimes differs on File Size).
Read Speed :- 90-100 MB/s (Approx.) (Sometimes differs on File Size).
Haven't tested USB 2.0 cause I don't use it!
Really loved the HDD and will recommend to buy to those who are looking for Slim, Portable and Easy-to-Use HDD..

I don't know why people are giving a very poor rating for this hard disk because I have been using it for more than a year and I did not find any major problem with the hard disk like no crash or error and also it has some good features like password protection with encryption.
So, please before using a product kindly read its manual and install all the software required for better performance and easy usability.
This drive is one of the best drives and also it comes from WD so don't doubt about it and also they are having 2 years of warranty so if the mechanical failure occurs you are easily protected.
Let's talk about the pros and cons of this drive
Auto backup with included WD backup software.
Password protection with hardware encryption.
Easy and ready to use out of the box.
Bold, vibrant design in a wide range of beautiful colours.
first thing you should do after receiving it -check its originality by registering on WD website.
lets talk about pros -very vibrant look, good speed , easy to handle, get 3 years of warranty, no heat up after vigorously used, protected by password , price is reasonable.
lets talk about its cons - slightly heavier than its previous versions
I do posted some of its pics that might helpfull for new prospects..
go for this if you willing to buy it .

In our CrystalDiskMark testing it managed sequential read speeds of 89MB/s - just a little shy of the 95MB/s SanDisk claims - though write speeds were a more modest 27MB/s. That's fine for recording full HD video, but falls a little short of what you'd require for quality 4K video recording.
If you want to use the card in a phone or tablet (or a Nintendo Switch, for that matter) you'll probably be more concerned with the 4KB speeds, and this is where the SanDisk Ultra is more impressive, managing to read at 9.4MB/s and write at 2.4MB/s. That's not the very best out there, but it's better than most and very solid performance for a card
So, all in all, perfect product and satisfactory performance.
I have another sandisk with the same specs which i purchased from amazon.uk, from another reatiler which i have been using for 3 years now and has no problem what so ever. I think this is a duplicate card coz the card i bought from UK looks a little different from this card which i bought from India!
Waste of money!!! Do not buy for God's sake!

From the beginning, the USB cable gave trouble with the USB 3.0 port (HP laptop, Windows 8.1). OS didn't recognize the HDD. I tried one USB 2.0 port, and it was readily recognized. Confused, I retried the USB 3.0 port many times, and finally after lot of fiddling, it was recognized. Even now, every connection to 3.0 port is a lot of hassle - I have to plug/unplug for a while to get it connected. Must be some cable issue. Not sure if it's worth the trouble to run around for warranty cover on this - let's see.
HDD is working fine otherwise. HDD is good and solid. Looks rather
I tried all methods to connect the product still not working
It is not opening in the computer
Now i want claim the warranty for this product
Please help me in this.

Now coming onto the HDD it's as good as it can be , the read write speeds are amazing and touches 100 MBps when copying one big file but slows down when copying multiple smaller file but this is not a fault of HDD so it's all good. LED notification light is also not that aggressively lit so you can easily work at night in dark. No vibration or any annoying sounds so it's definitely a plus.
One thing I didn't like that much is the guild quality. The plastic used is cheap and flimsy and does not feel sturdy in hand so if it falls down goodbye forever. Plastic quality could have been better.

Good speed data transfer, durable design.
Looks heavy, feels light.
The only cons is that the cable I'm using is giving a problem in connection now, doesn't connect to all laptops (Windows only), but after using for about a year. Worked fine I'm the beginning.
Comes with about 1.8 TBs to use.
Soothing led indication light of the size of a cellphone notification light.
Makes a little noise when transferring data.

and up to 40mbps in 2.0 port.
I mainly used it to store my Games and movies.
Thanks toshiba for making this hdd

And I connected this device to my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and MI LED Smart TV 4A Pro Android TV. My phone needs ML USB Mounter App to connect the DVD writer to phone and TV doesn't needs any apps. Supports all types of DVD movie files to play in TV. I burned some DVD'S. It takes 15-25 minutes to complete the burning process (depending upon the amount of data you are writing).. And I didn't checked it Writing speed.
Drawback: it’s too delicate. Don’t drop and don’t keep something heavy on it.

It has a steel connector instead of plastic in some cheap brands.
Only problem maybe is that the small cover for the port might get lost.
I also wanted a larger size so that I can feel it in my pocket and do not lose it.
Hope it lasts many years and keep my backup safe.
Regarding the product: I have bought this pen drive after having searched for various other brands. Product is worth of the price.
Uploading speed is ~7-10 MBPS
Downloading speed is ~22-24 MBPS
All in all it was good pen drive within the price of 679 Rs.

Got this pen drive for Rs 274/- only.
It has 5 years warranty.
Looks - It is an aluminum finish pen drive and looks premium, rugged and strong. It easily attracts fingerprints.
Build - It feels very strongly build and I don't think it will ever get damaged by any accidental drops etc. Believe me, its built like a Tank.
Size/Weight - 4.5 × 2 × 0.9 cm. It is small but not too small and neither very big in size. The body (Excluding the connector) is Roughly the size of your thumb.
15Gms of weight. It is not heavy, has a sturdy weight to it. feels robust due to its weight.
Available Space - Pendrive offers you around 14.4GB usable space out of 16GB.
Main Point, Speed:
I Tested all speeds on USB 3.0 -
Benchmarks - (crystal disk mark) It has write
Many may say the transfer speed is low bla bla etc but we are not using this for any mission critical application and even if the speed is little low that under standard test condition , one should be happy that this is available at this price.
This might be a random issue but it is what it is.
(Note : use usb3.0 or higher port with blue color to test, not the black one)

Amazon's packaging was superb. No complaints on that count. Absolutely as it should be with an international leader. It was delivered on time.
So cheap price, on time delivery, excellent packaging. What more do I want from Amazon?
Now the product itself.
Before buying I found a few
Ok here is review.. have been using for 1 year now.
So it is easy to plug and use ... (just like pen drive)..
But faster than pen drives.
any ways.. i bought for good price here.. but it became cheaper two days later in another site.. with blue color.. I would have like to buy it in the color..black is boring. hmm...
This was delivered very fast.
By the way.. I landed on this product instead of Passport Ultra.. because apparently Ultra is same as this.. except for little physical dimension difference
The issue of the cable not fitting properly in the hard disk slot seems to be a common issue for WD hard disks, and I was able to find many such issues reported on Google.

Toshiba brand itself gave me confidence in buying this product as I have been using their products for long time.
2) Next is packaging, packaging is with card board outside without any air plastic papes, but the inside is well packed as its kept inside a good plastic packaging as if HD cant move sides.. Well packed but can be improved -- Good 4/5
3) Coming to the product I have ordered for HDTB110AK3AA and got HDTB310AK3AA which I am not much concerned as its a higher model ;) ;) It's is small (palm size). its really cool. not so hard on the outside and its light weight, a pouch for 200 rupees will protect the HD even more .. 3.5/5
4) Speed is not great 26 mbps for movies in usb2.0 port and going to the top of 96 mbps using 3.0 port, not like 5 gbps
Initial assessment @ Rs. 700 ( non refundable)
If there is any retrievable data it will be charged @ Rs. 3000 minimum even it is 100 mb. Mine has 450 gb ( can't imagine the price they might put forward). And most these data recovery centres are charging the same. If I have to retrieve everything ( they won't do on demand files or folders) I need to pay what the 'say'.
So why should we need this ? To protect important datas ? To carry data in a portable device ? To

Durability is Long Life
Got Original Product From Amazon.
Storage Capacity is also what I expected.
One who all looking for 8GB Card with Less Price and Quality Product go for this it Fulfills all your Requirements.
1. This memory card has the Lowest Price among all the other 16 gb cards available in the market.
2. I have been using it for 2 years, and it's still performing great. So, it's hopefully very Long-Lasting.
3. Amazon is providing this memory card at a very Low Price (due to the Great offers & discounts)
1. Transferring Speed is slow.
2. Due to slow speed, it does not support 4K videos.
Sandisk is one of the most Trusted & Popular companies for storage devices in the world. This product by them is also Good. I was fully satisfied with this memory card at this low price. You can undoubtedly go for this product within this Budget.
