    I'm using the drive on my MacBook Pro for the Time Machine function. It's nice and fast, nice and big, and the price was right. Since I haven't had any disasters yet, I can't vouch for the retrievability of the data.

    A few, probably insignificant, gripes: (1) the unit can only get its power from the USB connection, and it doesn't work with the USB-powered hub I purchased, so I must plug it directly into the Mac, limiting my USB 3.0 connections to one. (2) The salesman and the documentation cautioned me about knocking or moving it about. I'm careful anyway, but how paranoid should I be? (3) The instructions strongly recommended that the drive be encrypted, so I did that. In a true disaster, will I be able to remember the key? (4) The activity light is awfully bright.

    I use to work for Western Digital, and they have always (well most of the time) good drives. This one is good, but it is kind of slow, during a backup it will bring my machine almost to its knees. It is very quite, though. It is a small foot print and so it is out of the way on the desk.

    Haven't used yet; earlier WD unit failed

    Comments about WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Portable Hard Drive:

    I bought this WD Portable HD because the price was discounted and I had a coupon. My previous (and up to now, only) experience with a WD Portable hard drive was not good. After several weeks of use, this previous WD unit would unexpectedly & frequently "dismount" itself from my Mac; then it would no longer "mount" at all. Lost a lot of files. Hopefully in the years since my first WD drive, the quality of WD drives has improved. Fingers crossed!

    The drive is convenient for those wanting to use it right away without having to reformat it for Mac OS. It's small and light.

    Comments about WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Portable Hard Drive:

    It is so important to have a backup of your computer - you don't realize it until everything is gone! This item is easy to set up and use. Also has plenty of space for all the hundreds of photos that I have, plus backups of my phone and tablet.

    Compact HDD worth using

    By Tech Guy

    from Hackensack, NJ

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Portable Hard Drive:

    I've used WD HDD for a long time and they have not failed me yet. This portable Hard Drive is compact, well designed, and feels solid. The rubberized side grips are a added feature. It's quite and does exactly what it says it would. Read and Write times are fast. I have no issues in this matter. Even the metallic silver case fits perfect with me MacBook Pro. You'll be good to go with this HDD. Can't beat the value for 1T drive.
