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

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.
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.
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.
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.
