The tiny size of SSD drives makes them a dream to travel with, whether on a long trip, of just to the local office. I ownboth the utterly superb Sandisk and Samsung versions. I also recently tested the LaCie and also found it impressive. So, what is SO WRONG with the WD drive, especially coming from a typically good and reliable brand?
RIDICULOUSLY BAD CABLE DESIGN:
Western Digital decided to permanently attach a tiny USB cable to the bottom of this SSD hard drive. At first glance, this seems genius. The cable is always there, and neatly tucks inside the bottom of the small hard drive. However, as we all know, USB CABLES CONSTANTLY FAIL! If this expensive hard drive’s quite thin permanently attached cable fails, the drive is kaput. USELESS! Will that actually happen? Sadly, yes it will.
Also, competing SSD drives give you adapters or additional cables to make the standard USB cable fully adaptable to today’s newer USB-C laptops and other devices. With this Western Digital--if you are lucky enough to still have a working permanently attached cable--it’s useless for newer devices unless you spend another $10 for a USB to USB-C adapter. Not to mention that the attached USB cable is ridiculously short. So you’ll also need an adapter to extend it to a longer USB cable just to reach your computer.
GET A SSD DRIVE. JUST NOT THIS ONE, UNFORTUNATELY:
See my photo comparing three SSD drives. They’re all tiny and any differences in their reading and writing speeds are not great, although I do find this WD a bit slower than both the Sandisk Extreme and Samsung T5s I compared it with. They are all blazing fast and barely bigger than thumb drives. If you don’t yet have a portable SSD drive, it will quickly become your very best friend.
Of these, the Sandisk is the most rugged due to its rubberized exterior. Yet, the Samsung is slightly smaller and a true sleek beauty. Like the other two, the WD has its own unique look and is more squat in shape. I don’t expect any of these to fail so the more rugged body of the Sandisk is not necessarily a meaningful advantage. However, what a bummer! The drive is not likely to fail, but cables always do!
What about warranty? Western Digital includes an admirable three-year limited warranty. That’s slightly confidence inducing knowing that cables typically fail in under two years. Let’s just hope the “limited” doesn’t include the vulnerable glued in cable. The Samsung warranty is also three years. The Sandisk warranty is . . . you guessed it! Three years.
WHICH TO BUY:
I have had many great portable Western Digital drives over the years. This one is sadly an utter clunker. Of the other competing drives, I find myself reaching for the Samsung the most often. That’s just because I think it’s design is coolest. In my opinion, it’s the best looking of the three. Feel free to study speeds tests, yet if you are used to thumb drives, or older mechanical hard drive designs, you are likely to find must any portable SSD drive absolutely blazing!

Based on my research, I have found many customers have faced the same issue which this tells me this is a real issue with this product.
Unforunllty, this product is not worth the price and not even for free!
You need to erase/reformat this drive to APFS first and then use it as a clone. Got rid of the onboard software.
