      I purchased this external portable HDD to augment my internal 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD on my Apple Macbook Pro 17" laptop. Simply plugged it in via the USB port, which powers the unit as well. It immediately transferred all my apps in a matter of seconds. Wow! Was I ever impressed. I got this on a special Christmas sale, too. B&H had beaten all competitors on price by a very significant margin!. Best deal out there. Thanks B&H!!
      Folks, B&H just simply gets it done. No bait and switch, no false promises. This is a real brick and mortar building - they've been around forever; and, the staff is sensational!
      Quality merchandise with the best prices and staff around - do your shopping here! You will NEVER be disappointed! (Awesome photo and music gear, too!) And no; I was NOT paid for this review. I'm simply a huge B&H fan/loyal customer!

      Im new to external hard drives and this is my first one. I wish it was a bit easier to use in the sense that I wish i didn't have to open a separate program to unlock the drive, in order to use the drive.

      I set it up so that it is password protected and in order to use it every time i connect it to my laptop, I have to open up this program, put in my password then open up time machine, then back it up. I wish it would just back up when it recognizes its my computer....or it would automatically ask me for my password.

      BUT...besides that, I've had no problems with it so far. Its got huge space (obviously) and for my purposes, it goes fast enough too.

        I use these drives to back up RAW captures from photo shoots so that I can messenger a whole day of shooting to a client quickly and easily. They've been all I've used for several years and seem to work reliably. Highly recommended.

            I bought the hard drive simply to back-up my computer and store a ton of movies. Everything arrived as expected, well packed and on time. The hard drive is so incredibly easy to use. Just plugged it into my MAC and it interfaced beautifully. Have had no issues at all with it. Loved mine so much that I bought one for my son, along with an amazing case (that wasn't expensive). I will be reviewing the case next, under "Going Back for a Second One". Bottom line: very happy with everything!

              I bought this drive as an emergency and backup drive to have while traveling. It is small, lightweight, and doesn't require a separate power cord. It is excellent for the purpose and a very good value.I have a 500 GB MyPassport that has been in constant service for more than two years as a Time Machine drive for an iMac. That My Passport has performed flawlessly.This My Passport does not come GUID formatted (required in order to install OS-X), but GUID can be added easily with Apple's Disk Utility. I've partitioned the drive into a 250 GB bootable OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) partition and a 750 GB Time Machine partition.

For a limited tech speaker like me this is perfect--no worries, no hassles, no extra steps to insure that your data is protected. B&H shipped right away and my drive arrived ahead of schedule with free shipping.

                              I purchased this external portable HDD to augment my internal 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD on my Apple Macbook Pro 17" laptop. Simply plugged it in via the USB port, which powers the unit as well. It immediately transferred all my apps in a matter of seconds. Wow! Was I ever impressed. I got this on a special Christmas sale, too. B&H had beaten all competitors on price by a very significant margin!. Best deal out there. Thanks B&H!!
                              Folks, B&H just simply gets it done. No bait and switch, no false promises. This is a real brick and mortar building - they've been around forever; and, the staff is sensational!
                              Quality merchandise with the best prices and staff around - do your shopping here! You will NEVER be disappointed! (Awesome photo and music gear, too!) And no; I was NOT paid for this review. I'm simply a huge B&H fan/loyal customer!

                                    So I was so this HD for windows platform, without reading that it was for a MAC. But that's didn't stop from getting it to work for windows by formatting the file system, bamm; that was it. The HD works great. Awesome pricing!

                                        I've had other brands and they stopped working making me losse all my data. WD never let me down. It's my third hard rive and all of them are still working fine.
