    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY IT SMALL AND MUCH STORAGE SO FAR ALL GOOD . I just got it so to early to write a long review . I have been using WD Hard drives for years and love them. I brought the Passport Drive for the backup of all my photos documents , downloads and My mac backup to store in my safe-deposit box. Wow this thing is small. I was using my books which took up a lot of room.Plug and Play on my Mac. I will come back later to update in about a year. But for Now I am Happy. Also a Big Shout Out to B&H you are the best. I love the PRICES and FAST SHIPPING Keep up the good work Peace Doc T

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big storage space in a small size It's small works great and has tons of storage space for the size. There's really no reason to buy the big hard drives anymore when they can make 4TB this small.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware the write-ups! I purchased two of these drives to store my photos on them to unload my iMac. The system is to use my Lightroom program just to manage the photos without storing them on my computer. The write-ups and the drive info stated that just get them out of the box and start using them. DON'T BELIEVE IT! Read and research the accompanying text and info. Even though it says that the drive is already formatted for Mac, it is not true. You will have to reformat the drive first before using it. The drives were unstable for me. I lost some valuable images because I believed the hype. The agent for WD told me that they are not reliable to store data on them without another backup. The two drives were to be the backup for these images. I am at least three days and many hours into trying to get these drives to work for me. I may be calling B&H for my money back if I can't get them to work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small for its capacity and has worked well so far! Very small about the size of a box cards. I bought this to back up some old projects from a few years ago and it worked great at transferring over a terabyte of footage over night. It took a couple of hours but when I bought this I new it wasn't the fastest hard drive. I just bought this to back up footage not work from. I have a G-drive with Thunderbolt for video production.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product but POOR packaging from B&H Can't complain about the product but I was really DISAPPOINTED to receive my INTERNATIONAL order shipped with one sorry layer of bubble wrap simply laid over the top of the hard disk drive. B&H couldn't be bothered to actually wrap the potentially fragile item which has cautions about avoiding shocks and vibrations in the users guide. They simply stuck it in the box, threw a piece of bubble wrap on top and closed it up. What sort of mess would I have had if it had been damaged, I can't tell you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drive, portable, ready to use. I bought this drive to store my Lightroom and Photoshop projects. Images load very fast. It's compact enough keep in my fireproof safe when I travel. Of course I back up to another drive as well. It always surprises me when I talk to photographers that don't back up their images. A year ago, my original iMac died. Thanks to Time Machine, I was up and running with my new one (ordered from B&H) in no time. These drives are so affordable, it only makes sense to have multiple backups. The portability of these Passport drives is great for travel with a laptop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drive and fast! I use this drive as the main storage for Photos on my iMac. This drive is fast and Photos works perfectly with it. By using an external drive I keep my main drive from filling up and also can store this drive in a safe place when away from home. This is a perfect solution!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plug and play for MacOS Sierra I used it on my iMac and it works as advertised. Straight out of the box. It is a USB connection, so not as fast as thunderbolt, a 4TB transfer will take while. I have not used it for TimeMaschine, which I do wireless. Be aware that this is a hard-drive, not a SSD. It will spin and vibrate all the time when plugged in. So I only connect it when I need to transfer files. This is not a cheap external hard drive for every day use.
