I read scores of user reviews, on this site and others, then bought a competing product and immediately wished I hadn't. Given my previous experience, I gritted my teeth and ordered this little gem (yes, there were some detractors).

I used this drive as a convenience tool and "security blanket" while on a 9-day trip to New England to find dead relatives (OK, family history research). The point of the tool was to move files from four different digital cameras (did I mention I was traveling with my brother and his gear), to two different laptops (Dell, running W2000 Pro; Mac laptop running OS X). And to cross-back-up folders on both laptops once content was uploaded to them. It sounds more confusing and complicated that it actually was.

I must say, the WD Passport gave me everything I'd expected. The old Dell I was using had a USB 1.x interface, so that was SLOW (not the Passport's fault). However, with the Mac, and with my USB 2.0 systems at home--- blazing fast.

If you use a laptop, be prepared to carry along a powered USB hub. As advertised, a lot of laptops don't generate enough power through their USB jacks to run the Passport. This was especially true of the older Dell I was using; the Mac powered the drive fine without assistance. But that was a minor irritant, given the overall performance of this drive.

Would I repeat this purchase? In a heartbeat.

***UPDATE*** [23 July 2009] I've taken this drive on 10-15 multi-day trips. I use it as a triple-backup system for digital photographs and digital scans. It continues to perform flawlessly.

This is my 3rd WD external drive (the first was a 120 GB bought about a year and a half ago. never failed without even formatting, works with both windows and mac/ the 2nd is a 320 GB with card reader which i formatted for mac, so windows cannot read it, works flawlessly). This one is extremely small, needless to say, it comes without the power cord. So one USB connection and you are all set. I did not format it, nor do i intend to (so i can use it while i dual boot on the macbook pro from OS X to windows and vice versa).
I do not know how other reviewers could not have their macs read it. I just got it so i cannot judge whether it will eventually fail on me. But judging from my past with WD, all their hard drives work perfectly. Highly recommended for both mac and windows users, who (1) need their files on the go (media, documents, applications, etc.) and (2) those who want to save space, and work without the always-intruding power cord. The hard drive also looks pretty sleek. Check the Western Digital website for the carrying case.

Update: ok, turns out, the drive was flawed. I started hearing squeeky noises, and the loading speed on the drive was fantastically slow. So i called customer service up. Judging from two replacements i underwent at the same time, WD customer service is trash. Here is what happened (the other being a PS3):
Phone-holding times were way too long on both sides, but I believe it is to be expected for Sony, given that it is a new product.
I had to pay shipping for WD which was twenty dollars to have it one day and tracked. They never collected the drive from the courier for several days. Why? I have no idea. It took Sony about a week to deliver the empty box in which I would put the PS3.

Okay, after 20 years of working with PCs (and an Apple or two), I'm unique in that I've never used up a full drive. In the early days, most of what I saved was word processing and spreadsheets. Today, I'm all the way up to 2 gb pix of my grandchildren and nature photos. Maybe a few QuickTime and MS MediaPlayer "movies," but I'm selective so on my primary hard drive, I've used 40 of 60 GB.

When I first got this Western Digital drive, I used it primarily for backup for my laptop. But then, with at least 80 GB left over, it became a second hard drive (most programs can be run off the drive) and it became a secondary storage drive for those pictures I wasn't sue about keeping.

I haven't found a negative to it except *perhaps* the synchronization utility and software. I have three PCs, one that I travel with all the time. Yes, I should have loaded the software. I didn't. What I simply do is copy the three mail programs onto a USB drive and transfer them over before I'm taking a trip. (email, billing, spreadsheets, employee handbooks - that's it.) And something tells me that this is a short cut that save time...

The pros are that it's relatively small, and will fit into a jacket pocket. It's 2.0 USB is fast. And I like the fact that the cable is only about a foot long (and detaches easily if you need to detach it).

I'm going to get a 200GB WD soon. That I will use as a second hard drive for my primary PC, probably rarely to be disconnected and hooked up to my subnotebook or laptop. And when WD comes up with a 200GB drive half the size (and they will), I'll get that too.

I give the Western Digital 5 stars. I've also tried Iomega (2 stars) and Maxtor (2 stars). Iomega makes it too complex, and the Maxtor didn't last the first week. (I try not writing about products that fail: that's often the users fault or just an anomaly and not fair to the manufacturers.)
