    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.

    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 found the WD Passport for the Mac to be easy to use and extremely valuable in backing up and moving my files to another computer. The fact that it is already set up for the Mac was another plus since I didn't have to spend time formatting the hard drive. For those qualities alone I would reccommend this great buy. True the usb seems to move somewhat slower than the fire wire I would just set up the transfer and do other business. Recommending this product without hesitation.

                  Nothing to it with this equipment ... plug it in & Apple's Time Machine asks a couple of verification questions, then takes over to protect all of your data.

                            Compact but ready for all of the RAW, DNG and JPEG files that I want to save. I travel a lot and shoot a lot of very large files, so this drive is ideal.

                              I use this to store video footage while in the field. Dumping SD cards is a breeze with this drive. Some would say go firewire, however a USB card reader can't utilize the speed of Firewire, so in my case this is equally as fast so no big deal drive is lightweight, made well.

                                      Works well with no set up. 2TB of space for a Mac. Great product.

                                        I love this hard drive and went ahead and bought another one to use as a back up. Fast, reliable, great storage and performance! Will definitely buy again.
