Can never go wrong with WD! SO heat added

Same Price in PCWORLD

So what's the difference between these and the WD passport drives ?

Is it just the case ?

Whats with the cold voting? This is the cheapest I could find this drive ANYWHERE!

pc world reserve and collect has been around for months and is easyer maybe?

but its £10 more :P

Best deal out there for this drive. Free delivery from Amazon is better for me than paying an extra tenner for the "convenience" of store collection at PC World!
Heat & rep added - Thanks :thumbsup:

Back at £70 now.

Expired in less than a day ?????

The Passport is smaller, but the latest versions are just annoying --- they show up as two drive letters, and it's impossible to delete their software partition, because it's part of the firmware, and make it like every other drive. I'm not interested in their security, backup utilities etc. - but they make it so you can't get rid of them anymore. Do a search and you'll find endless complaints about their policy --- a good brand gone bad, imo.

Uh glad I bought one when I did :P I'm guessing Amazon's own stock has run out and this is the second best choice.

No longer true. WD has made software available on its site for Windows and OSX, which removes the virtual drive.
