      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.

      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.

                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.

                                            I am getting into photography and plan on using My Passport Drive for storing my photo's when i get into it..I like the way it matches in color with my Macbook Pro. I really don't know enough to say if it's good or bad

                                            It's small so doesn't take up much desk top room, was easy to install and holds a ton of back-up.

                                              I am an educator with a classroom full of Macs! We are always needing to transfer items from computer to computer. The Passport makes this very easy to move files between students. Of course, it came formatted and ready to go! Love the portability offered with this device and the fact that it is USB powered!

                                              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.

                                                    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.
