Most bad reviews given to a product are usually due to not because the brand is crap, but because they received a faulty or DOA item. Crap happens and every product has a chance of being DOA.

These days you are going to get DOA electronics regardless of the manufacturer you select, so in my opinion it comes down to after the sale support.
Anyway, I have one of the WD Passport Elite drives and can't say enough good things about the drive. It draws power from the USB port, so there is no need for an external power connection. It's also very small which makes it ultra portable.

My replacement WD drives are still performing normally after 6 months, so I don't agree that all brands are equally as good or bad.
Just make sure you use the "safely remove hardware" icon everytime before disconnecting it.
