      this passport drive does not come up as an icon when it is loaded.it doesn't let you know when it is in the process of backing up the computer information and does not let you know when it is done. the regular means of ejecting it do not work, so i had to call mac to find out an alternate way to eject.it is small and easy to keep near the computer.i don't really know how well it works because i don't know how to test out what it backed up.there was no instruction booklet.

        Perfect for My Mac Book Air

        Comments about WD 1TB My Passport Drive for Mac:

        The drive is small, light and is perfect for backups and off loading my SD cards. I thought about getting a solid state drive, but after using this one I can't see the point of spending the extra money for something with less capacity and speed I don't need.

                      from Sunnyvale, CA

                      Comments about WD 1TB My Passport Drive for Mac:

                      This drive is quiet, very fast, and works as you would like when used like a large memory stick. What did not work so well was the software used to set it up as an automatic backup drive. When I first installed it, the interface that came up was not the one that was shown in the instructions, so if I had wanted to use the software I would have needed to do some head scratching. Since I didn't want that function, I bypassed it.

                                            I bought this product about 9 months ago. Everything was working fine until about last week. My computer stopped recognizing the device. It would blink and beep. None of my files could be retrieved because the hard drive itself is attached to the case, so the hard drive can't be freed. Apparently that's with all the WD external hard drives. I would suggest spend a few more bucks and get something better and not have to worry about it breaking in less than a year.

                                                Great little backup drive for my laptop with 1TB of storeage. Small enough to store in my laptop case and always available for plenty of backup.

                                                Fantastic drive. Very compact size and quick and reliable. Only complaint would be the cable being short and being a specific cable that is only made for this.

                                                I'm satisfied by how compact this external hard drive is. Lots of memory that i can easily carry with this size. I already own a WD 500 GB and had no problem with it. So i'm just confident having another WD portable hard drive. I don't look at other brands anymore coz you can't go wrong with this.
