Summary: I bought this on 26 August 2012 and today 9 January 2013 it has simply stopped being recognised by my Macbook pro. Tried all the fixes suggested but it still is not recognised. I only used it to daily back up a part of my hard drive but now on holiday in Oz so without a back up for another 2 months of travel. Not good next installment will be how WD deal with the warranty when I return home in April....
Summary: I have a Mac and needed something compatible for it. This has worked well and I am very pleased with it. I would just,say do not use the software on the drive as this will confuse for later use.
Summary: bought this for my wife who has a mac book. it came quickly and on time. its very neat, tidy and looks good ..in fact could easily be mistaken for an apple product! the other reviews on amazon were good enough to convince me it was all that was needed for the amount of transfers and data she would require. i also have mac books and imac but use the desktop versions. wd. usually does what it says ...so far so good.
Summary: I bought this drive to replace a G drive that I'd had which kept freezing Time Machine, and sometime other applications too. I looked at a comparable G Drive products but the one I was most interested in had reviews which kept referring to the fact that the drive de-mounted for no apparent reason, I finally settled on this drive based on the reviews and the fact that it was USB 2 and Mac compatible (I'm running Snow Leopard).
Summary: This portable HDD does exactly what it says on the tin, and is good value per GB. A Thunderbolt port would make it much quicker, but it functions perfectly well and is a capacious drive to use as a Time Machine. Recommended.
Excellent quick, compact and elegantly designed storage device.

Summary: I bought the My Passport HD drive for its Mac compatibility without the need for initial formatting, plus reviews said it worked well with Time Machine. I was not disappointed. Literally unpacked it, plugged it in and was backing up with Time Machine in minutes. Runs quietly and no complaints in terms of speed when it comes to copying individual files or folders. It's slim, elegant design compliments the Mac excellently. So far, I cannot fault it.
