    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.

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

    Perfect for college student for peace of mind to save all important information on computer as we lost everything when we did not have back up before when hard drive crashed. Small and easy to use. Large enough for all back up needed.

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

    A bit pricey but it is easy to use and as it is conveniently labelled for Mac I knew its was the hard drive I needed (not knowing whether there is any difference between PC hard drives and MAC hard drives).

    Just what I was looking for

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

    I was looking for a simple solution to backing up my MacBook Pro. I don't know how it could have been easier! The WD My Passport was already formatted for the Mac so all I had to do was unpack it and plug it in. There were no glitches in getting started. The first backup took a while as all information from the hard drive had to be copied. Subsequent backups only take a short time as only changes are updated.

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

    The price point of this product was perfect! I would recommend it these days when it is critical to take important records off your Mac...also allows you to delete files on your MAC that are only needed on occasion... It is also compact and easy to use.
