      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.

                      I had been very lax about backing up my computer, especially my photos. My Passport Drive for Mac has allowed me to free up an enormous amount of space on my laptop and safely store my pictures and documents.

                                I'm using this back up all of my photos I take. I take a lot, too. It was a slow at backing up everything from my Time Machine, and I had to stop it but the second time I plugged it back up, it went faster. It did everything it is suppose to do, so far, so good in backing up my datas and files.

                                      I bought a couple these to back up some Mac minis. Litterly took a few seconds to set up with time machine. I cannot speak for longevity because I just purchased them but I am pleased with the size, style and design.

                                                Great speed and easy to set up with the included cable. I am using it for archive duplication. The older WD drive I have that serves the same purpose is still going strong after daily use for four years. I expect the same from this one.

                                                        This was super easy to set up, and by far the best storage option for the price. It allows you to set up a password that can only be changed or removed by emptying the drive, which I appreciate.

                                                          Bought as a back-up drive for my new iMac. Does the job perfectly. Plugged it in and it instantly was recognized. Runs off USB, no separate power source needed.
