      Portable drive surpasses expectations

      My iPhoto app had grown to 98GB and clogged my laptop. Yet I wanted to keep the photos with me when I traveled. Enter the 2TB My Passport Drive for Mac by WD. I looked at other WD drives that cost $10-15 less but they had to be reformatted for Mac. I knew this would be the one for me. And it was. I took it out of the box plugged it into the laptop's USB port and within 45-60 min. the 98GB iPhoto library was transferred and safe. Incredible. What great peace of mind. And what's more, the drive is 1/2" shorter and only 1/2" wider than my iPhone 4S. This drive is a winner.

      Difficult to use

      big capacity, but difficult to use, especially when you update the contents, somehow, the software automatically creates two identifical files

      Comments about WD 2TB My Passport Drive for Mac:

      I have had good luck with all of the Passport drives I have purchased (4)in the past. They are easy to use and very sturdy (dropped one from a table to a slate tile floor with no adverse effects, not even scratches). Portable. The only thing I wish it had included was a case.

        I have 4 WD MY passport drives. Never had a problem. They are small, sturdy, easy to take with you, and reliable. This 2TB one is for my Time Machine backups on my laptop. It will replace a very small and older HD that is always full. One of the other Passport drives stores a copy of my computer nicely in our bank safe deposit box. Very satisfied with them.

          The product was used to back up my new iMac. It was surprisingly small compared to the previous product I was using. The connections and user friendly application was simple to use. just plug it in and follow the prompts.
          The price was very reasonable for a 2 terabyte product of this caliber. I would recommend this product hands down to other available products.

                      Truly plug and play. Fast. I offload some rather large video files to the drive.It has functioned very reliably so far, I just got it.Already a winner in my book. If it proves to be as reliable for longevity as my other much smaller passport has proven to be, it is truly a winner, winner, winner!

                        I use this for all of my Mac storage. I ordered it on a Thursday and had it the following Monday.
                        And it works flawlessly. But that's been the case with everything I've purchased through B & H.
                        I buy my electronics only from B & H.

                        Small, large capacity, good built, quiet, reliable. In short, the perfect solution for storing large files, such as raw image and hi-def video. I recommend getting more, so you have double backup of everything, just in case.

                                I am storing current photos, linked to my Lightroom catalogue with this small drive. It is so tiny it sits under my iMac screen so it can plug directly into a USB port without it joining the spaghetti at the back of my desk. The only negative thing is that it's a two step process to delete photos from Lightroom. It's faster than my previous hard drive set up. Too soon to know about long term reliability.

                                      Lo compré para usarlo al editar video. Ha funcionado muy bien. La posibilidad de agregarle la función Turbo por software le agrega rapidez. Muy conforme.

                                          Bought one to use with new Imac 2 years ago and have bought 2 more to use with 2 newer Mac systems since. Have not had any trouble with any of these purchased so far.

                                            big capacity, but difficult to use, especially when you update the contents, somehow, the software automatically creates two identifical files

                                              I packed up all my photos from both old and new computer. It was very simple and easy to use. So far it is very good for what I need to do.

                                              This unit is my third WS 2TB portable drive and they have been very reliable for me. My only disappointment with this unit is that WD did not include a soft case with this unit.
