Great performance at a budget price

rakuten

  • Summary: This is a great, fast and reliable little external hard drive. Firewire adds so much speed and the portability is awesome. I bought the refurb model and saved even more. This is the best price I could find for such a great little hard drive. We travel a lot with these, in the US and overseas, and find WD to be one of our favorite brands. Highly recommend this brand and this product.

Great drive

Gabriel D., Newegg
17 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought that drive a few months ago when my storage needs got over control. I needed something small to hook-up to my laptop who act as a desktop replacement. I did not want a desktop drive, too much hasle, noise and wires. I recommand that drive to any MBP owner.
  • Pros: Firewire 800 speed
  • Cons: None

Great External Drive

Philip B., Newegg
26 October 2012
  • Summary: Speeds I achieved with this drive were about twice as fast via Firewire 800 as they were via USB2. That's all due to the interface and should be expected. Unless you're forced to use USB2 with this thing, use the FW800 instead.
  • Pros: Nice small drive
  • Cons: There really are no cons for the drive itself... But Windows 7 won't natively talk to this without either loading software for it or reformatting the drive. I sorta think that's unfortunate, since a Mac will read a Windows (NTFS or Fat32 drive) without any special software. You'd think Windows 7 would play nicer with Mac hardware...

I like it !

rakuten

  • Summary: This is a great drive--fast, error-free and so easy to deploy. No on/off switch means it's ready to go - no need to get off the couch, flip the switch or waiting for it to power up...

Fast enough for editing HD

Harold G. Meeks Jr. "hal2k", Amazon
10 May 2012
  • Summary: The Passport Studio's three main features are it's storage capacity (in this case, 2 TB), it's metal enclosure and connectivity through both USB and Firewire 800. Since this drive is marketed for Macs (although Windows and other OS's can use it as well after reformatting), firewire connectivity in a portable drive is very attractive for those who need speed on the go (Macbook Pros and Desktop Macs all come with FW800).

Excellent Drive!

Anonymous, Newegg
6 May 2012
  • Summary: My work bought this drive for me to do in-field ghost imaging. I have about... 500gb worth of high-quality images on this drive, and it still performs! Takes about 15 minutes to image a disc now, sometimes less!
  • Pros: 1. Fast writes and reads.
  • Cons: Could be faster; could be an SSD!

Satisfaction

Anthony Caswell Pérez, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: I'm very satisfied with the Hard Drive in using it as the main drive replacing the old drive through the firewire cable. More than enough memory for my needs, silent, and doesn't heat up at all.

Plug it in and forget it.

sgeise "sgeise", Amazon
13 December 2011
  • Summary: I fix stuff for a living, and I got sick of fiddling around with and tweaking computers long ago. I couldn't care less any more about computer hardware. Which is one reason I switched to Mac. I got this drive and opened the box. The instructions consisted of a very small 1 page pamphlet with a picture on it. I probably spent more time looking at the instructions in disbelief then it took me to "set it up." There is no set up. Just plug it in.

Excellent, Works Perfectly, Ready to Go for Mac

Tiger, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: This drive is targeted specifically for Apple users and works perfectly. It comes formatted for mac, but according to the box you can reformat for windows, but includes no instructions how in the box. It is looks sort of like an iPhone but a bigger and heavier, but not too big or heavy so that you can pretty easily toss it in a bag or pocket.
