        Comments about WD 500GB My Passport Drive for Mac:

        I only really bought this hard drive for my class. But, it was cheap and it works wonderfully with all of the programs at my Institution. I would recommend this to other university students working with a small budget.

          It's quiet, pretty fast, and has low vibration. Smaller than what I expected, but that's definitely good. Hopefully it lasts a while.

              I haven't tried with this specific drive, but other WD drives do not switch well between Mac and PC. That's something I didn't know before using them. However, I plan to use this just as my backup for my macbook.
