        Used for on the go backups of digital photos.
        Great size and ease of use. Fast and reliable.
        No USB cable included in the USA product box where other countries it's included. Slips of surfaces easy so would be nice if a non-slip grip mat and cover bag was an included accessory.

          This 2TB external is small, compact, and does not need an external power supply. A really great back for my Mac time capsule, and all my digital photos from Lightroom.

            Comments about WD 2TB My Passport Slim Portable HDD:

            I have 5 other WD Passport hard drives like this, they are great. This is the first slim one I bought and it is a little lower profile. The one thing they got rid of to keep it as low as possible was the rubber feet, but I guess you could always add them if you want. Overall the drives are fast, don't require an external power source and are very portable for 2TB drives.

              I bought this for my Macbook and to take along on vacation to store photos. Small size makes it perfect to slip in the case with the Mac. It needed to be reformatted to work with the Mac, but that was quick and easy.

              Even with my USB 2.0 connection (unit is USB 3.0), it's pretty speedy.

                Western Digital has always made good products. I've never had a problem with any of their USB external hard drives. I store and edit video from this hard drive and it works great. Very slender hard drive but durable. The cost is reasonable for what you get.

                I am using the Passport Slim to back-up the data on my new laptop. There is no need for another power cord and the unit worked flawlessly the first time I hooked it up. I also like the small size. I can't think of any negatives.

                  This was my 2nd 2TB WD HDD. The 1st one I bought for using while traveling and needing additional stogae space (my laptop has a small SSD). I bought this one because my harddrive was starting to go on my desk top (my main editing computer). I use this one to clone my harddrive before replacing it. I will now use this HDD to clone my harddrive every 3-4 months. I 1st tryied this with a USB2 HDD and it took about 10 hours. This one (USB 3) took about 90 minutes. I don't use the software that WD provides with it.

                    I got this device as a backup storage. With a USB 3.0 port, it provides a very fast write/read speed about 120MB/s which one would expect to get from flash/SSD drives.Having said that, the aluminium design wasn't so impressive. I returned my WD 2TB My Passport Slim which I got from @ to get this device, but I think nothing much was achieved. For this reason, I give it 4 starts.
