Be sure to check the prices of the different sizes because of the time of writing this review the 1 TB hard drive was only five dollars more than the 500 GB version. Doubling your space for only five dollars is a no-brainer. As always I recommend getting the largest hard drive you can afford because at some point you want/need more space.

This is an "portable" hard drive meaning all it needs is a USB plug into your computer to transfer the data and get power from. That means you don't have to plug in an AC adapter to your wall socket. I prefer these hard drives over the kind that require an AC adapter every time. This will also work with USB 2.0 adapters the speeds for 2.0 transfers are still fast enough for most users at about a gigabyte of data every 30 to 40 seconds. At the time of writing this review to terabyte drives or the highest capacity could find for a portable hard drive. If you want to get a 3 or 4TB hard drive those are the kind that require a wall AC adapter.

This hard drive is Mac compatible just follow the steps below to format the hard drive for your Mac. If you're a Mac user setting up or erasing this drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps.

1. Plug in the the drive
2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder
3. Next select the newly plugged in a drive and on the right-hand side you should see partition click on that.
4. Then inside that screen on the partition layout drop-down choose how many partitions you'd like to set up. I generally go with one partition and just use folders to organize my files.
5. Then on the right-hand side you can name the partitions and select the format.

Works prefectly on my Xbox One, the difference between this and the wd passport is that with the passport your paying an additional fee for the wd backup software. In other words, if you are considering a hd for your xbox one, this is the one!

I ordered this hard drive to start a digital collection of Wii U games and it works well for that purpose. The drive wasn't even recognized with the included USB cable and required a Y-cable in order to be formatted and used. It has a tendency to go to sleep when not in use for a few minutes, as when using Netflix or Wii mode, but this isn't a problem during gameplay, where the drive is actively read and written to.

I measured the read speed on PC at about 80mb/s (sequential) when using USB 3.0. Using the same USB 2.0 Y-cable connection Wii U uses, the speed dropped to 34mb/s for a sequential read and 23mb/s for a random read, both of which are faster than the 22.5mb/s speed of Wii U discs.

In-game, I saw an average reduction in loading times of 6 seconds for Mariokart 8 tracks and 1-2 seconds for Pikmin 3 trials (there was no change in the initial game boot time in either case). In general, the drive is fast and performs better than using a disc, but it does read very slowly at system startup, which reduces the usefulness of Wii U's "quick start" feature. It's also not as fast as the Wii U's internal flash memory, which loaded Bit Trip Runner 2 and Nano Assault Neo levels about 3-4 seconds faster (but that's to be expected from a SSD).

It's a shame that the full USB 3.0 speed capabilities of HDDs can't be utilized on Wii U, but this drive still loads faster than an optical disc and works reliably. Aside from the sluggish performance at boot-up, I'm very happy with this drive.

This is a very nice little compact storage device. Inexpensive and convenient for sharing large files with friends and family by mail. Quickly formats to FAT32 for use on both PC and iMac.

It is very small in size and very quiet. This has far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to use it with the Wii U which is what I have it for

I purchased the 2 TB model, and it's working perfectly in both Windows and Linux.

The drive came preformated for NTFS but can easily be reformatted for specialized Mac or Linux file systems using standard operating system utilities.

It didn't come with much in the way of a user guide, but it doesn't really need one, it just plugs in and pops right up as a standard storage device like a thumb drive.

Physically, this drive is a bit heavier and just a little thicker than some of the lower capacity USB powered drives I have used, but is still incredibly compact at only a little over 3 by 4 inches by just over a half inch thick (about the size of a pack of those larger sized bicycle playing cards). The plastic drive case isn't fancy, and probably won't fend off an attack from an angry bear, but it's adequate given the fact that, like any portable drive, you will want to be careful about severe shocks and drops anyway.

Despite the compact size, and lightweight plastic case, the drive weighs in at close to half a pound and feels pretty hefty and substantial.

Power consumption, even for the largest 2 TB model, is still low enough to work on a single 500ma USB port (no 2 port Y-Cable or external power needed). Not only that, but even after extended operation, transferring hundreds of gigabytes of data for example, the drives case barely even starts to get warm.

Mechanically, my drive is so quite and smooth in operation that you have to really feel carefully to even tell if it is spinning. You can feel very slight jogs internally when the drive is seeking, but it's barely noticeable, and if anything, smoother and quieter than most of my other portable hard drives.
