Summary: This drive came formatted for Mac and when I plugged it into my MacBook it came right up. I've been using it as a Time Machine backup for the last couple months and have had no issues with it at all. It's whisper quiet and it does the job. You can't ask for more than that in a little hard drive like this.
Summary: Using a MacBook with OS 10.5.8... Light, thin, easy to use, powered through the USB, set up ready-to-go for Macs, and lots of space (500 GB). The Western Digital My Passport Edge for Mac Portable Hard Drive is as good as it gets. It also works with Time Machine for regular backups. What else do you need, or want, in a portable hard drive?
Summary: This is a great hard drive. It transfers fast, looks nice and sleek and works when it's supposed to. I haven't lost any files as of yet! One thing I like about this that I didn't about a previous hard drive was the cable connector. My older hard drive had a loose cable connector and that was a huge complaint in all the reviews. This one stays nice and snug when it's connected to the computer. I don't use the software...just drag and drop.
Summary: The enclosure is about as small as you can get while still housing a 2.5" hard drive. It is thinner than the open body of a Retina MacBook Pro. .40 inches is really thin, which also makes it really light despite it being constructed entirely out of aluminum. WD says it is made of metal but it feels like aluminum as opposed to good ole' Pittsburgh steel, I could be wrong though. It looks better than any drive I've seen on the market.
Summary: I'll make this review short and tight. Appearance: Beautiful. The case is made of metal and it's very slim and light weight. Compatibility: Wonderful. I plugged it in my Mac Pro and 5 secs later, it was ready to use. Durability: Pretty good. I dropped it once from about 3 feet high, and it survive. Performance: Good. I don't have USB 3.0 but file transferring with the regular USB is faster than usual. Would recommend it to friends and family.
