      I bought this hard drive to work as my time machine for my iMac. The drive is fast, pretty, small, and works almost perfectly. The one issue I have is that it will randomly disconnect when it is plugged straight into my iMac. This interrupts my backup and makes me worry about the integrity of the drive. After reading several reviews, forums, and other complaints I realized that this is a problem with how much power the drive is sucking from the computer. Apparently, the drive uses too much power when it is backing up large amounts of data. Since it is USB powered and there is a limit to how much power USB can provide the drive will shut down and disconnect. I read that many people have called WD to get a Y cable to connect to 2 USB ports. However, I found out that using a powered USB hub makes the drive work perfectly and not disconnect. Before, I could barely get my iMac to backup without the drive disconnecting. Now it never disconnects. WD knows about this issue but they refused to admit it unless you call them and ask for a Y cable. For that I have to only give them 4 stars.

      I'm not the smartest tech person, but am usually pretty good with this kind of thing. I can't figure out how to save files to this drive using my Mac. I just want to store some photos. I'm sure I'll figure it out, but the fact that I've spent more than 15 minutes on trying means its too complicated for the simple function I want to use it for.

                As an IT Customer Support expert, this is the only portable HD I recommend to my clients.
                I've personally used 3 for work, and countless customers have purchased these with no complaints in over 2 years. They all continue to work flawlessly.
                This is my 4th, and I expect that it will outlast both of my current computers.
                The speed and reliability are unmatched, and it looks great too! Very compact, sleek design, quiet.
                Everyone needs at least one of these to have peace of mind that their data is backed up safely.
                Western Digital makes data backup worry-free.

                  I use this drive for my iMac Time Machine backups. I have 2 and use the 2nd one to keep off premises. It is very small and quiet when in use. Being so small I can take it with me easily; like when I went to Austria last summer. My one complaint is that the cable is very short; not long enough to reach the floor. For the one I keep connected all the time I got a longer cable so I don't have to keep it on my desk. I can't speak to the software. I erased it and formatted it for my iMac, having no interest in the software.

                    First off, I'm no computer expert. But I am an avid photographer. I've been wanting and needing a back-up for all the images I have stored on my desktop. After reading several reviews that listed many "pros" and few if any "cons", I went with this one.

                    Just as claimed by WD, it is super simple to set-up and use with the included software.

                          I just purchased the WD Passport ultra and I am thrilled with its performance! I just copied 43,000 images to the hard drive and I still have tons of space left! his is a very fast and responsive drive and I work strongly recommend it!!

                          First explain the headline - Great Little - as in physical size - (but not - as in 1TB of storage).

                          Small form makes it easy to carry, single cable for data & power makes it convenient to use.

                          Using it to replace old, bulky & slow drive for our 150,000 music files we ripped from our collection of albums, tapes and CDs.

                          Only thing not great was me only ordering the 1TB instead of the 2TB drive...

                          I'm a photographer and, along with my other back ups, I use a portable hard drive for each year. I have tried others and ALWAYS come back to Western Digital nits the most consistent, reliable hard drive I've tried.
