Excerpt: I use several of these drives and they have traveled with me all over the country and never lost a file due to drive failure. However, as with all spinning drives, you cannot move these drives while in operation. This will permanently damage the drive and cause file loss. The small size and tough exterior make this drive a good traveler. I really like the USB 3.0 connector/ cable included. It is sturdy and stays solidly connected to the drive when in operation.
Excerpt: We now have three of these and not a single hiccup in their reliability. They are of good quality, quiet, take up absolutely no room on the desktop and ready to use out of the box. Highly recommend to any mac or pc user. Just reformat to your operating system if needed.
Excerpt: When my husband decided he needed a portable hard drive for his Mac I steered him to this one. I have two of these in PC format and I love them. They are fast and reliable. They are good for backing up my desktop and for backing up my photography on my laptop.The portability is great too. I can carry them with me in my camera bag or my computer bag and have every file I need as well as plenty of storage for additional files. The price was very good too!
Excerpt: Purchased this product based on reputation of product and size. Is compatible to 2.0 and 3.0 USB ports. Used with an Apple laptop. Like the convenience that it plugs into the laptop and does not require it's own power source. The size of product allows transport when away.
Excerpt: I was looking for a portable hard drive to run Time Machine for my MacBook Pro, and this was exactly what I needed. It's simple to use and did the job for me. I would definitely recommend it for this purpose.
Excerpt: I bought this WD Portable HD because the price was discounted and I had a coupon. My previous (and up to now, only) experience with a WD Portable hard drive was not good. After several weeks of use, this previous WD unit would unexpectedly & frequently "dismount" itself from my Mac; then it would no longer "mount" at all. Lost a lot of files. Hopefully in the years since my first WD drive, the quality of WD drives has improved. Fingers crossed!
Excerpt: It is so important to have a backup of your computer - you don't realize it until everything is gone! This item is easy to set up and use. Also has plenty of space for all the hundreds of photos that I have, plus backups of my phone and tablet.
