      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.

        These are great hard drives and just the right size. I'm so over having huge drives on my desk taking up space. Last year I bought 3 of them and just bought another 2 drives to put this years work on them. I've never had a problem with these drives at all. Great hard drive for a great price.

        Very good. Easy to use. Plug into your computer USB port. Steady light on the Drive will blink when it isn't loading and will be on steady while loading.
        Compact. Plenty of storage.

                After trying several different external drives for my Mac, I decided to give this one a try and I was pleasantly surprised by the speed and ease of use. I have yet to try out any of the included software but am considering giving it a try. Overall, I am very satisfied with this drive.

                  I bought this drive to back up my photos after I had downloaded from my DSLR to my Macbook.

                  I was on a trip somewhere I'll never be able to return to so protecting my photos was very important.

                  The drive served my purposed admirably, and my wife is now using it as a time machine disk for her Macbook. Her files don't change as often as mine, so she only connects every couple days.

                  My only quibble is that the unit seems marginally heavy for its physical size, but I emphasize that's a quibble, not a real criticism.

                  This is a very nice hard drive. It was truly a plug-and-play device with my MacBook Pro 15" Retina computer. The only thing that was unclear was the need for vs. the risk of issues in installing the optional Turbo driver or the data encryption feature. I decided to not use either because of potential issues that others have reported on various fora. I didn't think it was worth the risk for an unclear advantage. I wondered why WD made these features optional. That implies they create issues that some may want to avoid. B&H and WD should provide more details of why these features are optional and what are the pros/cons of using them.

                        I bought one of these for my sister-in-law, who is a photographer (non-professional). Over the time, she has gathered around 80,000 pictures.She is extremely happy with this storage device that came already formatted to use with her MacBook Pro.

                              Worked well with Mac air. And it is perfect Time Machine back-up hard drive.
