A companion to my MacBook Air

Paul R. Thomas "Paul R.", Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this drive as an external storage option for my MacBook Air, it didn't have as much space as I would have liked so I decided to store my music collection, some documents and pictures on an external hard drive.

Cable Connection Problems Linger; Otherwise, 5-Star Mac-Friendly Portable Drive

Doug Eberle, Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: As reported in other reviews, I've experienced a besetting problem with WD's proprietary cables- specifically at the connection point. I've owned 3 different WD MPS models in the past 3+ years, and the current model appears to come with the same problem as the first one I bought: the cable...

touchy cord.

Alistair Loveless "~Loveless", Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: Works great as far as a drive. However when using the 800 cable, the slightest touch will disconnect the drive. The drive. This has resulted in corruption of files, and file systems. Have 2 of these and this one may just have a crappy cable, or it can just be a touchy drive.

Nice drive but non-standart mini-USB connector

C. Seiler, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: This drive works flawlessly on firewire (at least for me so far), but I wanted to use it to share data with a PC and a mac. The major problem is that the USB connector on the drive is not the standard mini-usb, meaning that only the cable which came with the drive will fit.

Good security, but Firewire 800 problems

Peridot, Amazon
8 May 2011
  • Summary: I have the WDBAAE64000ASL My Passport Studio drive, connected to a 2007 MacBook Pro. I am having regular freezes when using the firewire 800 connection. Every 60 seconds the computer freezes for a moment, then jumps to catch up. If I am typing, one of the keys will be repeated several times.

Major firewire / os x issues

Andrei, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I am having major issues with mine when connected through the firewire 800 connection under os x. Passport studio 640 crashes, freezes, hugely undermines performance. If you are going to use firewire under os x 10.6, then read up on the freezing issue. Major problem.

My Passport Studio is not what I wanted

Roy Wiegmann, Amazon
30 June 2010
  • Summary: My nature of business requires me to constantly back up the files because I am answerable to my clients if there is any loss of data. So I was looking for a very reliable hard drive. Bought the Western Digital My Passport Studio after much research as it had the USB 2, and Firewire 400/800.

Nervige LED

rsammel "samrstock", Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Als Festplatte tut sie ihren Dienst, da kann ich weder Positives noch Negatives sagen. Aber wirklich schlecht ist die LED, die, sobald der MAC an ist, ständig blinkt. Die LED ist sehr hell, viel zu hell. Tagsüber ist das kein Problem, aber abends/nachts stört das sehr.
