Good deal and simple operation

  • Summary: I use this for Time Machine backup for my 2011 macbook. Setup was quick and very easy without needing to use any of the WD software or formatting. Had to employ once when hard drive puked--everything was restored to the previous day as if nothing happened. A lifesaver! I use a 2T version for my iMac and it works just as well. Very nice not to have to reinstall everything after the inevitable disc failure.

Tricky to connect

Valerie Rind, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought the USB 3.0 version also and have the same problem with both WD My Passports. You have to connect both ends of the cable in some pre-determined-but-impossible-to-learn way. Most of the time I get an error message that the drive can't be located. "It's right there, plugged in, where do you think it is?" I growl. It seems to work best if you stretch the cable out straight and insert it ever-so-carefully. It just doesn't fit snugly the way the connections should.

Buy it now! It's important to back up your Mac!

Arielle Berti, Amazon

  • Summary: Great product! I'm so glad I got a back-up hardrive for my Mac (it's so important to do, if you haven't done so already!). I think this WD passport is especially good because it's specifically made for Macs. I would definitely recommend this to others!

Works great...the second time around.

  • Summary: The first hard drive I received worked once and then just stopped. I found out that was common for this product. I did the return process, which went smoothly, and received my second product. I've had it for a while and so far it has been working properly!

disconnects constantly!

Virginia A. Nightingale, Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: I am frustrated by the connection between the Passport and my Mac--the tiniest nudge disconnects it--and sometimes it disconnects with no nudge at all! I then get a message that I failed to eject the product properly and may lose my data--not a very happy thing to hear! It is possible that it is my USB port on my MacBook pro that is the problem, but I know that several other reviewers mentioned the same issue, so it might be the Passprt connecting cable.
