Size: 2 TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For 10 years now I've been a loyal customer of Western Digital hard drives. They are my brand of choice when it's time to upgrade or expand my system. In the last 10 years, I have not had even a single hard drive crash or failure. This is significant considering that I currently own 4 WD external drives and 4 WD internal drives. I've also owned and gave away another 2 externals drives and 4 internal drives. That makes 14 Western Digital hard drives with zero problems.

This new WD My Passport Mac specific hard drive meets all of my expectations. It is very fast at USB 3.0 transfer speeds. Plus the actual hdd stored inside is impressively fast too. I've gotten ride of 2 Seagate external hard drives because of slow disks - even when they are housed in USB 3.0 cases. The disk speed is important.

The specs on this drive are no different than the other new WD My Passport hard drives, EXCEPT that this drive is formatted HFS+ Journaled for Mac OS X Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion or Mountain Lion. To use this with Windows it must be reformatted. So if you are a Windows user or looking for a drive to use with both Windows and Mac - you are better off purchasing a standard WD My Passport.

This is a fantastic hard drive for photo or video editors that work on the road. It's very small and very light. Its USB 3.0 speeds are very good, making it a great choice for a Photoshop or Final Cut scratch disc. It's smaller and cheaper than portable Thunderbolt drives. Of course it's not as fast, but for mobile photo and video editing it offers a compelling price/performance combination. I used the drive as a video scratch disc on a MacBook Pro 2012 -- which has USB 3.0 -- and was very pleased with the performance.

For home use, it's not as compelling, though still very good. Generally speaking, you can get faster and cheaper external drives, with the caveat being you'll also need an external power source for the extra performance. The USB 2.0 speeds are good, but not extraordinary. For people that don't travel and/or can't take advantage of USB 3.0 speeds, there are several cheaper choices that are also a bit faster.

The Western Digital utilities included in the drive are good for novices, but people familiar with hard drive care and security can ignore them.

Overall, this is a quality drive that's good for most uses and outstanding for certain users. For home and office use, it's a good drive. For photo and video editors that travel, this is a fantastic product that offers fast USB 3.0 performance at a relatively low price. For people that don't want to pay the high price for a portable Thunderbolt scratch disc, this is an appealing alternative.

I've transitioned from PCs to Macs in the last eight months, and one of the best parts of the transition is how easy it is to back up a Mac. Time Machine...boom. All you need is a back-up destination with lots of space.

And the Western Digital My Passport for Mac is a perfect destination. Plug it in...the Mac sees it...tell Time Machine to back-up to it...and you're good. Amazing.

The portable (that is, it uses the computer's power via the USB cable) hard drive comes with a couple of tools / applications:
- WD Security allows you to protect the data on your drive with a password. I'm not a hacker so I'm not sure how robust this protection is - it seems enough to keep someone like me out!
- WD Drive Utilities: Diagnostics, Sleep Timer, Drive Erase, and Registration. All the tools seem to work well, and none are too invasive (unlike, say, some of the back-up apps that come with external drives made for PCs).

I've backed-up two Macs (a Mini and a MacBook Air) with My Passport for Mac; everything went smoothly and fairly quickly (though I can't really see a big difference between the Passport's USB 3 capabilities and my older USB 2 devices). I'll update this review if I encounter any issues down the road.

There's really very little to complain about with this Western Digital My Passport 2TB. It plugged straight into my 2009 iMac (and worked at USB 2.0 speeds) and worked just as well on a Sony Vaio Z series at USB 3.0 speeds (after formatting to NTFS).

There are a couple of things that let the drive down, and they are as follows:

1.) It's really, really plastic. The silvery color is going to look pretty bad (if you're an aesthetics-type person), so be sure to be gentle with it or pick up a third-party case for traveling around.

2.) It's quite a bit bulkier than the standard 2.5" notebook drive + enclosure. This is due to Western Digital using a 15mm drive in here versus the "standard" notebook drive thickness of 9.5mm (or 12.5mm with larger disks). It's not a huge device, but you definitely notice it's "there."

Overall, though, it works quietly, efficiently (it uses Western Digital's "Green" line of disks inside), and I've had absolutely zero problems with it. And for a hard drive which is designed for storage over speed (yes, it's USB 3.0, but it's only a 5400rpm disk), you can't say fairer than that!

4.5 stars out of 5.
