Passport to Hell

Eddie VanArsdall, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: I'm happy for all of the reviewers who have had such a positive experience using this drive. Unfortunately, I join the chorus of the four or five users who have found that this product is a waste of money and time. I bought the drive in September 2012.

This is pure junk.

Matthew Daniel Pleasant, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: This is pure junk, don't waste your money. I had this for a total of 6 months and it worked until yesterday. Now I can't access my files because the data structure is corrupt and unreadable. Online help told me to format the disc to fix the error. I did this and one day later, it happened again.

Back up harddrive

Helen Downs, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: I chose this rating because I can't get the product to backup my Mac OS hard drive. After 12 hours at 90% on diagnostic testing nothing happened and I have tried to find how to set it to backup applications and documents, but nothing has happened so I have reverted to using my old Time Machine.

Buy something else if you have a PC

26 November 2012
  • Summary: The display on the front is useless for NTFS formatted drive Formatting the drive was a major pain in windows XP. The provided documentation was USELESS. I had to access the website to get it working and even than it was pretty unclear.

Owl 79, Amazon
16 November 2012
  • Summary: Don't waste your money. Quit working a few months in, Time Machine stopped backing up to it, reformatted it, but could never get it right. Technical service at WD refused to help, Apple wanted more $ to help.

Zero Stars. Believe the negative reviews or be sorry....

HLK, Amazon
14 November 2012
  • Summary: I read all of the positive reviews on this product. After less than one year, the drive failed. Worse yet, I lost all of the data on my computer's hard drive. I own a Mac, so I thought I was safe. I used Time Machine and naturally assumed I would just reconnect my Passport and all would be fine.

Drive Failure Out of the Box

Riverboat, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: One has to wonder about the quality control at Western Digital. I purchased a brand new My Passport Studio 1 Tb. and hooked it up to my brand new MacBook Pro with Lion system software. Installed the WD Drive Utilities and the WD Security add ons that came loaded on the drive.

Drive will not unmount after computer sleep

Fred Truman, Amazon
9 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought this drive earlier this year and I was excited about the small desktop footprint, the capacity and the design. It worked pretty well for a while - I was using it as my primary external via firewire 800, daisy-chained to another external laCie drive which I use as my time machine backup for...

Smartware = dumb, failed me after six months

D. Pedersen, Amazon
16 July 2012
  • Summary: I just had my Passport Studio fail me tonight, and after months of underwhelming performance, I'm not surprised. I thought the LCD screen was a good idea but the novelty wears off quickly.
