    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.

    What a great price for a 1t back up drive. Backed up my Mac over night. Super small to be portable when I travel. Great deal

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

    This particular Portable hard drive came to us as highly recommended by our Staples salesperson based on his personal experience with it. We took a chance since we had a great coupon, and all of my Staple Recycle Rewards credit dollars. Then he advised us of an additional coupon available to us. Even if we didn't have such great service, and such fantastic Staple program reward points, we still would think that this one was well worth the price. Easy to install. Easy to use, and plenty of room to grow!

    New backup drive.

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

    I am amazed by the price of external hard drives now. A 1TB drive used to be too expensive to imagine, now it's too affordable not to get one.

    This drive seems great. I bought it to backup my MacBook Pro. Plugged it in, told the computer to use it as backup and away it went. No problems.

    It's tiny too. My previous backup drive was much less memory space but larger. I needed a separate carrying case for it. This drive is so small, I just slip it in the outside pocket of my lap top carrying case and don't even notice it's there.

    I'm sure that the technology is advancing so quickly that even this drive will be obsolete in the near future but for now it's an excellent buy.

    Almost perfect for Mac

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

    I purchased this drive to make a backup for my Mac (OSX 10.9). It works great for creating a Time Machine backup. And the 3-year warranty gave me some comfort.

    Separately, I was having trouble with my laptop, and wanted to make a bootable backup. This is an exact clone of your drive that you can use to boot up your stuff on a separate (working) computer. My favorite tool for this is Carbon Copy Cloner (bombich.com)

    Unfortunately, this drive is *not* bootable. There's a whole page on the Carbon Copy Cloner site that lists which Western Digital drives will and won't boot. (Fortunately, I had the backup and the computer was repaired quickly, so I didn't lose any data - just a day's time.)

    Summary: Great for Time Machine. Good warranty. Fair price. But if you need a bootable backup, choose another drive.

    1TB Time Machine Backup

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

    Comes with USB 3.0 cable and formatted for my MacBook Pro and iMac. It is a solid state device so there are no moving parts and has very low heat generation and it is very fast. The device worked immediately and has performed flawlessly for the past 2 weeks since I bought it and see no reason for that to change. I thought it was an exceptionally good price for a 1TB backup memory device.
