    WD My Passport for Mac reviews

    4TB My Passport for Mac USB 3.0 Type-C External Hard Drive is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backup Drive for Mac This is a great backup drive for the Mac. I had an issue with a different brand portable drive that was originally a PC formatted drive that I reformatted for Mac. I choose this drive because it had good reviews and was pre-formatted for Mac. The drive is large enough for what I needed and was a fairly small enclosure. I really liked the USB-C connection. My Mac has USB 2.0 and 3.0, it worked great with my computer. This drive comes with both a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable. You dont need to purchase a separate USB cable to use this drive with the older USB format, and it works great with no issues. Some drives dont come with the USB-C to USB-A cable, but this one does. I like that it will work with both the newer computers as well as my older 10 year old Mac. The drive has an activity light on the case, which I also like. I used this drive to back up the files from a movie I just shot. I used one as both the 1st drive and as a backup drive. Copying to it was easy and fast. Im pleased with my purchase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5/5 but a couple things The drive works well, but there are a couple of things I would fix. 1. With my new 2018 MacBook Pro, It almost always has to be Forced to Quit. It will not just eject when thrown in the trash. I don't know if this is ever going to compromise any data, but it makes me uneasy every time. Thank goodness everything seems okay so far. No data loss. 2. The cords are really short, only about one foot. I need to buy longer ones so I can use my laptop on the couch and not have the drive tucked at my thigh. It is fast enough, but not nearly as good as a SSD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plugged it in and it worked The title says it all. Didn't use the included software, just deleted that. Like the USB-C cable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Work as Expected I purchased three 4 TB external drives to use with Lightroom and Time Machine on my new iMac. They were easy to set up and so far work flawlessly and reasonably quickly. I was going to use the third drive as additional back up, but decided to use cloud storage. As I did have a WD hard drive crash in the past (after 7 years) I will keep the third drive for an emergency, unless I find another use for it, or decide to use it as additional backup, as originally planned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shipped quickly; works well. Arrived in a few days through regular mail. Initially didn't install when plugged into USB hub, but installed immediately and was ready to use when plugged directly into desktop USB port.
