    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.

        Straight out of the box, it's that simple. Exactly what we needed for workflow space on our video editing projects. WD Passport Drives are great, they have always satisfied our needs. And the drives designed specifically for Macs are even better. BH has them for great prices and they are one of the most reliable sources in the world!

            Comments about WD 2TB My Passport Drive for Mac:

            The drive is solid and, while not fast, fast enough for backing up.
            I'm producing a documentary film and need a place to store my video files as I shoot and shoot and shoot. The second drive serves as a mirror of the first using Super Duper on my Mac, so that I always have a master and faithful duplicate of my files.
            Because the drives come with a (limited) three-year manufacturer's warranty, I'm confident of the drive's build and quality. But, I'm not prepared to take chances with my files, so it's belt and suspenders for my project.

              This is really working well with my new MacBook Pro. It's a lot of storage for its size and seems pretty compact and sturdy. The USB 3.0 it is much faster when backing up my files from the hard drive to online back up. Not that this matters much to me, but it looks great with the MacBook Pro as well.

                            I have never had an external HD before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I read the user manual online before starting (recommended but not entirely necessary.) I plugged in the usb cable and clicked on the icon and was ready to go. I have a MAC Mini and all I had to do was turn on time machine and it started the backup automatically. Barely bigger than a pack of cards it fits on top of my computer and looks nice too. I bought 2, one for the desktop and one for the macbook laptop that I use for different stuff. Great buy , lots of space and easy to use. It has its own diagnostics and security which I don't use but is easy to set up also. As always, B&H was wonderful to deal with and fast shipping. GREAT DEAL ALL AROUND!

                                      The My Passport drive does exactly what it's supposed to: gives you abundant storage for things like photos in a very portable package. Read and write speeds are quick. I run Adobe Lightroom accessing all my photos from My Passport. I have three of these and next time I need additional storage, I'll probably get a fourth.

                                        I received my 2TB external hard drive 2 days ago and have since backed up all the data on my computer. The external is quick and reliable thus far and I'm overall very pleased with the product and price. The external was $[$]cheaper here [*]so I was able to justify purchasing 3 years of warranty with my savings. This is my first B&H purchase, and I will be back for many more :).Best,Tara

                                        Western Design makes good external hard drives. They are actually the drives that LaCie uses in their external hard drives. The main difference is that the Passport has a plastic housing, so there is no real protection against drops or knocks. I keep two backup drives for my professional work, which are LaCie drives. I use the Passport drives when I need to work on the Mac Book in the field and need to stay compact and light.

                                          This is perfect for travel. It is not to large and gives me plenty of room to download photos on the road.
