      This ext drive is of sturdy constructions; I like the on/off switch; didn't want to fool with the MyBook security features, so the Elements line is perfect. Great drive at a competitive price point.

      Comments about WD 2TB My Book External Hard Drive for Mac:

      Very nice drive, that arrived when expected. I found it easy to configure into 2 500gb and 1 TB partitions. I am using 1 500gb partition for Time Machine backups and have not yet decided on what to do with the other 2. I could have gotten by with a smaller drive, but the price for the 2tb was irresistible. So for now it just sits there and does its' job - great.

        I recently purchased a Mac which I have to say is something that everyone should do but enough about the Mac, I have to be honest this hard drive was just as easy to download all my files to. We as a family have made more videos and truly have enjoyed the size of the external hard drive.

                      Works as described. I can't comment on the speed of 3.0 usb as my MacBookPro only has 2.0. I usually buy Western Digital for external storage and have been happy through the years.

                          I recently ordered a WD 2TB Hard Drive from B and H. It was exactly what I was looking for to back up photo files. It has a great memory capacity and a sleek compact design. It works great with all of my Mac computers and is easy to set up and use. You take it out of the box and plug it into your wall socket and computer and you are ready to go right out of the box.
                          Thanks B and H!!

                            Great hard drive at a great price. Synced effort effortlessly with Time Machine. The only downside is that it has to have its own power supply.

                              I recently bought this hard drive when it was on sale during the B&H deal zone. I needed a desk hard drive to be able to store my films and photos. This does the job! it takes a few seconds to wake up but nothing that anyone couldn't handle. I love how quiet it is and how little it takes up of desk space. All of my hard drives are WD and I love them!

                              I got this drive when it was the deal of the day and it's working out nicely. I couldn't find out if it was a 5800 or 7200 rpm drive in the specs, but it's been reaching about 130MB/s over USB 3.0 and that's been sufficient for me. It looks nice and hasn't been getting hot, even as I sit here transcoding MLV to CDNG and ProRes from it. It's only been a few weeks, so I can't speak for its long term reliability. I just had a Seagate drive die on me so I'm a bit distrustful of all my drives at the moment... I hope for better days with this one!

                              Always needing some extra storage. Great price for a quick significant space
