Comments about Western Digital Western Digital My Passport Elite 320GB Portable Hard Drive (Bronze):
This was the best buy,to have a 320GB in a pocket size drive is awesome. I travel a lot and only have a laptop with me. I take photos and my laptop does not have the space to keep them. This way I can download them on the Western Digital and keep them safe...I also use it to back up my music. I would recommend this to anyone that is on the go needs to back up data,music or download pictures from their camera. The only thing I didn't like is the program on the drive... When you sent this up it keeps bugging you to buy storage. So I deleted the program and just use it as a seprate drive.
