      Recently, I have been shooting videos like crazy with my Canon VIXIA HF M41, I have purchased earlier at B&H (by the way, I am amazed by the excellent quality of the stills I have been shooting with that!). The moment I saw there was 2TB My Passport Studio Portable Hard Drive for Mac by Western Digital, I have rushed to purchase it (I already have the 500GB and the 1TB), and never looked back. I admit that my main reason for buying that was the storage capacity. However, I have gained two more invaluable features: working speed and connectivity. The dual FireWire 800 port feature is an important one considering that my new iMAC only offers a single FireWire 800 port. The dual port feature enables me to work at the same time with my old My Passport Studio devices in order to mix old material with a new one, and makes the work easier and faster.

                        I ordered this drive as I am now required to do alot of video editing and other intensive projects. I needed to get something that would be protable and not need an external power source, hold alot of files, and withstand travel and shoot heavy days. I recommend this drive with the upmost confidence in this purpace. I hope this review will serve you well.

                            Seems like an excellent option. Let's see how long it will last. The build-in applications, however, don't seem to be a great choice. I just deleted everything and reformated the device. Using the Mac default applications (TimeMachine and Disk Utility) is much better than the awkward pieces of software provided by WD.

                            This device is fast and furious when connected with FireWire 800. It is great to edit video directly or just to use as a backup.

                              Great drive. I was looking for a 2TB drive with FireWire 800 for my Mac and I got exactly that. It is a great drive and would purchase another. If I wanted a USB 3 capable drive, I would have looked for one that was.

                                    I am a produce professional video films and always needs lots of storage space. So packing a whopping 2TB into this compact size is awesome for travel - or as a spare backup.
