  • Summary: Delivered fast and as promised. Great item for a good price. It shipped fast and is exactly as described. Slim, light and fast. Perfect for what I need. Can even be formatted for use with a PC if you are a bit tech savvy!

Nice and small for travel

  • Summary: Love the small size. Using Windows 8 (yes, I mistakenly bought the Mac version, but I reformatted it with no problem), I've found that the File Manager crashes pretty regularly, and the Windows 8 'Metro App' from Western Digital is ... well ... pretty useless. I'm still trying to figure out how to stop it from launching when I first plug in the drive.

A very well-designed, well-made portable hard drive

  • Summary: I like Western Digital hard drives, but I was a little skeptical about the edge series. They're far more expensive than the regular passport drives, and you're paying extra for just a little extra thinness. On top of that, you get less disk space for your money. For $30 less (at the time of writing this review) you can pick up a drive that's twice the size (1TB vs. 500GB). Overall it seems like a really bad deal to buy the edge.

Great for storing my daughter's media files for college and personal stuff. .

  • Summary: Western Digital My Passport Edge for Mac is a wonderful product. I'd hate to have my daughter lose all of her files. Better safe than sorry, right? Pros: 500GB storage (adequate for most people) Quick setup and easy directions--plug and play simple Very fast data transfer with USB 3.0. I was surprised at how fast we transferred all of her movies, songs, videos, projects, etc.

Slim, well-designed portable 500GB Mac drive

IRG, Amazon
17 October 2012
  • Summary: My Mac usage is limited since we primarily use PC laptops for personal and home-office use. That said, I did want an external drive to back up the hard drive of the Mac desktop I use (and make available to guests in our apartment). We also wanted a device we could use when working with clients who use Macs and where we need to download from other Macs and keep for home-office use. This model meets both of those needs.

Great Product But Not Sure It's Worth The Extra $30

Wandering Hoosier "dog lover", Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: The WD Passport Edge for Mac is an ultra-slim hard drive with a metal edge that is compatible with USB 3.0 or USB 2.0. It holds 500 GB of information, which is more than the thousands of pictures that I downloaded onto it from my computer. I found it easy to hook up to my Mac and download my files. I am lucky, though, that I didn't try to download my files last week before upgrading to Lion because this hard drive is journaled for Mac OS X Lion or Mountain Lion.

Very nice product...easy to use.

  • Summary: Just got this hard drive, specifically designed to back-up Macs. Worked very well; it's also tied in to work with Time Machine on my 13" MacBook Pro. It backed up my 30 gigs in about 20-30 minutes. I just worked on other things during the back-up. No biggie. Nice that all my music and photos are backed up. I've had a Mac crash on me only once in the 20+ years I've been a user, and I DID lose all my music and photos that time. I've learned my lesson since.

So Small

  • Summary: It is hard to review - it is well built, small, quiet and it works. If it fails in 5 years or without any warning signs I will give it a zero rating!

A good value and well designed bit of kit

josie82, Amazon

  • Summary: It's easy to say that this is just another hard drive. However, this one comes in an all aluminium CNC-machined housing which complements Apple's range of computers in both looks and integration with the Time Machine backup feature. To put it simply - this thing is really cute and stylish. Should you need to, this drive can also be reformatted for a PC.

Solid and reliable

n7misc, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: No problems so far - note that all the manuals etc are on the drive. It has a short USB cable which means it is really only suited to use with a laptop unless you replace the cable - it won't sit on many machines as supplied. We have a number of these for other machines and as with everything from Western Digital - it's rock solid and reliable.
