Contest: Show me WD, win 500GB!

So here’s our 4th give-away for December and this time we’re raffling off a 500GB Western Digital MyPassport (thanks to our sponsor Western Digital Philippines). Ok, what do you need to do to get the chance to win this portable HDD? Check out the mechanics below.

In under 30 seconds, record a video of you showing any Western Digital product. Just tell us where or how you got it then give me a reason why you wanted the 500GB WD MyPassport. Upload it on YouTube and label it as YugaTech – Western Digital Give-away.

Leave a comment in this blog post with the URL to your YouTube entry. Don’t forget to go to the WD Philippines Facebook Page and Add/Like them.

That’s it! How easy is that? We’ll randomly pick a winner to win the prize. You can submit as many unique entries as you want to increase your chance of winning (should be unique product).


Again, you can borrow, buy, rent or steal any WD to show to us — ask friends, officemates or schoolmates if they own one. Western Digital has a number of internal HDDs, SSDs and Home Entertainment products (WD TV Live).

Submission starts today until December 31, 2010. We’ll announce the winner by first week of January 2011.

You can help spread news of this contest by sharing this on your Facebook wall or post this on your Twitter:

    Here is my entry to the YugaTech-Western Digital Give-away.

    I bought my WD 500GB from PC Options last December 17, 2009. I need another new WD 500GB because the present one is almost full. Surely, I will have a brand new external HDD.

    Blessed Merry Christmas!

    Hi here is my super duper reliable 500 GB Western Digital..

    I got it all the way from Ashburn Virginia in COSTCO last year. Its so sleek, sturdy, neat easy to put on the pocket and a very very reliable repository of all my files. In fact its always full so I need another one. So Western Digital you rock!

    Hohoho… Happy Holidays

    DEJAVU. If I enter the contest, my video would go something like this:

    “Here is the 1.5TB WD I went out and bought ahead on my own after YG’s failed WD contest a few months back. I really needed the space a.s.a.p. but that contest took unnecessarily too long to announce a winner. It was handled really unprofessionally.”

    And that’s 100% true.

  8. yuga says:

    @jedd – now here’s another chance to snag a new HDD!

  9. NemOry says:

    @sir Yuga, hahaha, me and my barkadas are Jackass but I dont know if I can carry out to take a video in the mall.haha. But thanks ha.

  10. NemOry says:

  11. ryanV says:

    Is this — Don’t forget to go to the WD Philippines Facebook Page and Add/Like them. — a requirement? Believe it or not, I made the decision not to have a facebook account.

  12. yuga says:

    @ryanV – not a requirement, just a reminder.

  18. Marcus says:

    naman eh, dati post a twit lang.. now video recording and youtube uploading na. Extra challenge ang mechanics hehe… pero that’s great kc worth the effort naman ang prize. ;p

  19. deuts says:

    Abe, kelangan ba talaga pakita ang mukha sa video? Kc “video of you” eh. Or does it mean that you only took the video.

  20. marklupogi says:

    Question: so hindi po ito pagandahan ng video kundi gagawa ng video then raffle? Yun kasi ang sabi sa taas raffle. kasi if ever na ganun parang kahit videohan ko na lang for 30 secs yung WD HD ko. hahaha!

  21. deuts says:

    Eto na! Ako na ang mananalo! Here’s my entry!

  22. rsa1 says:

    i don’t like the steal idea!

  23. ryanV says:

    I have 4 different WD products. For me, it’s a brand I trust.


    My first WD product — WD1600AAJB. Already defective. Had some “sawdust” material coming out of the “drive hole”. Probably from improper care. Used for a classic Xbox mod to keep home videos & backups. Now, had to find a place for those.

    Kept it in the hopes that I might be able to have it repaired. And now, it might serve another purpose – to win me a gift from yugatech & WD.

    My HDD’s are in various state of “full-ness”, so a new 500GB one would be very much welcome.

  24. ryanV says:


    My first portable WD HDD — WD2500XMSE. Liked the finish. Not much for the color. When the internal one clunked out, this was used to keep the home videos and backups. Bought on sale from BB two years ago. And this is currently full.

  25. ryanV says:


    My other portable WD HDD — WD5000MEB. WD is a trusted brand so I always got HDD’s from them. Still used to keep home videos and back ups. Have a lot of those and this one is almost full. Already started to delete older files. Was a present for my birthday last year from my wife. She bought it from the mall.

  26. ryanV says:


    This is an official WD portable HDD case — WDCC07RNN. It’s a hard case. I liked it very much. It’s a good investment for protecting your WD portable HDD. Bought it online from the WD store. It was on sale. Currently used to protect one of my WD portable HDD. Would be nice to have a new tenant for it. ;-)

  27. Here’s my one and only entry:

    My ever reliable WD800BD Classic 80 Gig SATA.

    I only have this Western Digital internal hard drive, the WD Caviar 40.0 GB. This was bought summer 2004 and still being use with our Pentium 4 computer. I need a 500GB WD MyPassport because I don’t own any external hard drive. I’m only using three flash drives for my personal files.

    This is my entry

  32. Here’s my entry for the contest! Good luck to all of us!

    Here’s my entry:

    Good luck to us all! Happy holidays! :)

  35. Franz says:

    This is my Dad’s 500GB Western Digital MyPassport. His office gave it to him about a month ago. I need a new one since this WD MyPassport usually disconnects frequently and I need one for my Thesis Defense next month regarding Integrated Circuits.

    I don’t know what’s wrong with it. I looked into WD site and found out it cost 62USD dollars to ship the product for replacement to Singapore. Nearly half of the cost of the merchandise. So please choose me Master Yuga. The EHD will help me a lot for my defense thus graduating on time this March. :D

  36. Emmanuel Logarta says:

    Here is my 3rd entry for this contest!

    Thanks and Merry Christmas to all! :)

  37. Rocky Ko says:

    My entry:

    I got my first WD hard drive after reading positive feedbacks from the net. I was then looking for a reliable hard drive for my important files, ever since it never fails me.

    I need an additional 500GB WD MyPassport so that i could bring my files with me for presentation, my WD My Book is too bulky to do the job for me.

  38. My first entry:

    Got this through my bro. Although we’re now using it sparingly; hirap din kasi kung paulit-ulit na lang yung mga downloaded movies na nakastore sa katabing Maxtor portable 320GB HD.

    That WD Digital Passport prize should be good for another year’s worth of AVI movies. :)

  39. My second entry:

    Also got this through my bro. Madaling napuno kasi mga MKV files mostly ang laman. Worse, madaling nasira yung power cord. Hindi pa rin nya napapalitan :)

    That WD Digital Passport prize should be a good addition, equivalent to another year’s worth of AVI movies that my other brother is now fond of downloading. :)

  40. Juan says:

    Sorry for the bad quality ng video cam.. sa cel lang kasi kuha ito :)

    I borrowed my friend’s WD My Book 1tb and WD Tv Hub for this contest..

    Cheers Sir Abe and Western Digital!
